BAYLEY’S Driving School - TERMS AND CONDITIONS
BAYLEY’S Driving School offers the following Terms and Conditions upon the commencement of driver training. The provisions of this training is subject to the acceptance of these terms and conditions as set out below.
LICENCE AND FITNESS TO DRIVE
All students must carry a current, valid licence to drive for every lesson. This includes Learner, Provisional, Full and International licences. It is the responsibility of the student to advise the instructor as soon as possible of any possible medical conditions or medication which may affect the student driver.
Appropriate footwear must be worn for all lessons and driving tests. Comfortable clothing and enclosed flat heeled shoes are recommended. Mobile phones must not be used at all during any part of the driving lesson unless the vehicle is parked and permitted by the instructor in exceptional circumstances.
BAYLEY’S Driving School accepts cash, electronic bank transfer or credit card payments. Cash and credit card payments can be made on the day at the commencement of the lesson. If cash is required from an ATM for this lesson, this time will be included in the driving lesson.
Electronic fund transfers must be completed 2 business days prior to the driving lesson to be processed in time.
LESSON BOOKINGS AND CANCELLATIONS
Your instructor will endeavour to arrive early or at the prearranged booked time, however if for any reason the instructor is delayed, the lesson will be extended by the amount of time the instructor is late or delayed. If this time cannot be added at the end of the booked lesson, then it can be carried forward to another suitable time.
If either the student or instructor needs to cancel or reschedule the driving lesson, a minimum of 48 hours notice is required. As BAYLEY’S driving instructors plan their activities around the students lessons and driving test, the instructor and other students are at a loss if a late cancellation occurs without the required notice. BAYLEY’S Driving School will request compensation for this loss being the cost of a lesson in full if a lesson is cancelled without the required notice.
If a student becomes ill, then BAYLEY’S Driving School will request proof of this in the way of a valid doctor’s certificate. BAYLEY’S Driving School reserves the right to cancel a lesson if the instructor suspects on reasonable grounds that a student is unfit to drive due to the affects of alcohol or drugs. In this case, the student is still responsible for the late cancellation of this lesson and the instructor’s loss and therefore payment of this lesson in full.
DRIVING SCHOOL VEHICLES
All BAYLEY’S Driving School vehicles are modern, roadworthy and have a 5 star ANCAP safety rating and fitted with dual controls. If a student requests the driving lesson in their own vehicle, your instructor must first assess that vehicle is in a road worthy and safe condition.
DRIVING TESTS & RMS BOOKINGS
A common misconception among some parents and students is that the RMS provides vehicles for the driving test, however this is incorrect. For the driving test, a student may use their own roadworthy vehicle or hire the driving instructor’s vehicle. There is no stated advantage for either or any bias known.
BAYLEY’S Driving School requires a 2 ½ hour booking for the driving test. This includes a full 1 hour refresher driving lesson and arriving at the RMS office at least 15 minutes prior to the test booking time as requested by the RMS. While your instructor will make every effort to ensure that the instructor vehicle supplied for the test will be fully road worthy and comply with all legal requirements at the start of the test, the instructor and BAYLEY’S Driving School cannot be held responsible for vehicle failure that occurs during the test and is no liable for any consequential losses.
Your instructor and BAYLEY’S Driving School cannot be held responsible for test appointments cancelled by the RMS due to bad weather, sickness, staff shortages or other unknown reasons. Such cancellations are beyond the control of the instructor and therefore the lesson fee and booking fee for the booked period will be charged.
