Payment for service
Payment for lessons be they unreserved, reserved or an intensive course
Wherever possible I encourage pupils to take advantage of the reserved lesson status
as detailed in the Reservation, cancellation and refunds page.
Over the years I have been offered several novel ways of paying for driving lessons including, 'weed for the weekend', so let's clear a few things up.
In the car
At present I am only able to accept cash in the car.
I am perfectly happy to receive payment via electronic banking and will provide you with the details if this is your preferred method. All that I ask is that you include your name as the reference on the transaction for easier reference on my bank statement.
When payment is expected
Payment is expected at the beginning of the lesson.
If you bring your bank card with you to the lesson so that we can fetch cash then the first thing we do is get the money. This time is seen as being part of your lesson time.
Payment is expected in full at the beginning of the first lesson of the block irrespective of the size of the block booking.
Payment will only be taken by electronic banking and is expected to be in my account before the first lesson is taken.
Clarification - If payment has not cleared then lessons will not be provided until such time as the money has arrived into my account.
Refunding of advance payments
Refunds are easily available (it is your money after all). Full details available on the Reservation, cancellation and refunds page.
Transfer of driving lessons
If you have paid for a block of lessons in advance and wish to transfer the remaining lessons to someone else then I see no reason why I would refuse. However I will only take the instruction to transfer directly from the person who paid the money.
