Payment for service
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.
At present I am only able to accept cash.
Payment is taken in advance:
Wherever possible I encourage pupils to take advantage of the reserved lesson status as detailed in the 'Booking driving lessons' section. In either case I insist upon being paid at the beginning of the lesson. If you do 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.
To my understanding a block booking is where a pupil (for their own convenience) wishes to pay for a block of lessons in advance. I am happy to take money for lessons on a block basis to suit your convenience.
I have no pre-conceived notion of what a block is. It can be as few or many as suits you at the time. I have provided an example below:
I have always got at least one pupil who is monthly paid and wishes to pay for the entire months lessons on the first lesson of the month so that they know where they are with their money.
I have no problem administering this and a receipt is available if you wish for one. Right there in front of you I will make the entries into my diary for the times that you are reserving in advance.
Discounted lesson prices:
There are no discounts available.
Up to date lesson prices are available on the prices page.
Refunding money paid in advance:
If you have a reserved status or have undertaken a block booking and wish to have any money outstanding refunded to you then no reason has to be given and the full amount will be refunded as soon as is practically possible.
This is a very rare occurence but it has happened and normally I will bring the outstanding balance to you at the end of the day.
I respect the fact that the outstanding balance is your money.
Transfer of driving lessons:
Driving lessons are not transferrable.
I put my prices up annually on the first Monday in July.
