Terms & Conditions
Your YELLO driving instructor will refer you to these Terms and Conditions.
Having ongoing lessons shows your understanding of them and your agreement with them.
- The pupil certifies that a valid suitable licence is held to drive the tuition vehicle. Pupils must inform their instructor immediately if they receive any endorsements on their licence during the period they are receiving tuition.
- In the event of mechanical breakdown or other difficulty outside the control of the instructor, the instructor reserves the right to rearrange lessons at short notice.
- A minimum of 48 hours notice is required to be given to the instructor by the Pupil to cancel a lesson and should the Pupil fail to give such notice then the Pupil will be liable to pay the full tuition fee. (If a block of lessons has been purchased, the School will just count the missed lesson as one of the paid for block.)
- Lessons can be of variable duration but most are 1.5 hrs (90 minutes). If for any reason (outside of the Instructors control) it is not possible to give full duration instruction, any lost time will be added to a later lesson.
- Any fee paid to the DVSA for the driving test fee (currently £62) does not include the use of the car for the purpose of the test nor any prior instruction.
- Payment for each lesson should be made prior to the lesson. Yello Driving School reserves the right to increase the hourly rate with reasonable prior notification to the Pupil. Any blocks of lessons (bought and paid for) will be honoured at the old prices.
- LEGAL LIABILITY – The pupil should be aware that the instructors primary objective is to promote road safety and in doing so he may take control of the vehicle. The instructor will make every effort to instruct the Pupil to the highest standards but cannot be held liable for any errors that the Pupil may make whilst driving and not accompanied by the instructor before or after a test pass.
- The instructor will endeavour to teach the Pupil the correct driving skills according to the recommended syllabus issued by the DVSA within the minimum number of lessons required.
- Driving Tests should only be booked with the prior agreement of the Instructor. The Instructor reserves the absolute right to withhold the use of his vehicle for a driving test. He will usually do so – and is in fact required by the DVSA to do so – where in his professional opinion any given pupil is not at the required (test) standard. Mock tests can be carried out (at the pupils request) at any time to see if they are near or even at that standard. A pupil is always at liberty to go for test, but, will require the use of their own car to do so if in the opinion of the Instructor they are not ready to pass the test.
