Our Privacy Policy

Miles Ahead are committed to protecting your privacy. Please read our Privacy Policy carefully so that you understand how we collect and use the personal information which you provide to us.


When you take up our services, we will take your name and home address, and any further addresses of places you need to be collected (ie work or college) so that we are able to provide our services.

Before the first lesson, we will require details of your provisional or full driving licence so that we can check for any endorsements or restrictions (a legal requirement).

If booking driving tests on your behalf we will require your full name, address, email address and driving licence details. We may ask for your theory test pass certificate number, as it is required for practical test booking.

For training purposes, a progress record may be kept along with your personal and license data.

At the time of passing your driving test, we will ask for a photo of you with your pass certificate, for publication on our website and our social media pages, for marketing purposes (this is entirely optional).

You may choose to make payments by BACS. In this case, we only store the transaction details for accounting purposes, and not your banking details. The mobile banking app or website that you used will store your banking details, but nothing is stored separately by us.

The above data are held in our written diary and records, on our PC or mobile phone (these are kept either with us or at our office at all times). Email correspondence is stored on a secure server.


Miles Ahead Driver Training controls the personal data collected on this site.

You can visit the site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. If however you decide to use the Contact or Booking facilities on site, we will request information from you, such as your name, address and contact phone number. We may use this information in order to perform essential driving school services, to respond to your queries and requests, arrange quotes, and to keep you informed of our services.

Our website uses industry-standard SSL encryption to reduce the likelihood of personal data being intercepted.


Cookies are very small text files that a website can send to and store on your hard drive to help tailor and keep records of your visit to the site. We use cookies to collect information automatically about your visits to our site, such as browsing patterns, but information collected in this way is only used in aggregate form rather than being linked to identifiable individuals. Please see our cookie policy for more information.


We may use personal information obtained as above, including through the website, to provide essential driving school services, to respond to your queries, arrange quotes and requests and to keep you informed of our services. We will not disclose any personally identifiable information without your permission unless we are legally entitled or required to do so (for example, if required to do so by legal process or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime) or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and/or defend all rights, property or personal safety and those of our users/customers etc. We do not sell, trade or rent personal information to others.

All transactional data will be stored for a maximum of 6 years for legal and accounting purposes. All other data will be destroyed or deleted when your training is completed.

All appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures have been put in place to protect your data.

We cannot be responsible for the Privacy Policies and practices of other websites even you linked to our website from a third party website or if you accessed the third party website using links from our website. We recommend that you check the policy of each site you visit and contact the owner or operator of such website if you have any concerns or questions.


Our handling of your personal data will be governed by UK law and our activities therein will be deemed to have occurred in the UK. If you have any disputes with us over any privacy-related issues, then these will be exclusively resolved in the courts of England & Wales.


From time to time we may make changes to this Privacy Policy. If we make any substantial changes to this Privacy Policy and the way in which we use your personal data, we will post these changes on this Page and will do our best to notify you of any significant changes. Please therefore check this Page on a regular basis.
