Miles Ahead Driver Training - Terms & Conditions


Client acknowledges the following with respect to services provided from Miles Ahead:

1. The discounted first lesson is open to complete beginners and those who have not previously taken lessons with Miles Ahead.

2. We are legally required to check your driving licence before any in-car training can take place. We will give you more information about what you’ll need to do to enable us to make this check once you are booked in (or you can use this link). You must inform us immediately if you receive any endorsements on your license during the period of your training.

3. You should agree with your instructor where your lessons will start and end when making any lesson bookings. Changes to these locations will only be considered if good notice is given. If you make such a request, your lesson may be shortened to cover any additional travelling time to avoid disrupting other lessons and tests.

4. For driving tests, you will be required to pay for a minimum of 2 hours under our normal tariff, which will include approximately 45 minutes of pre-test practice including the drive to test centre, use of the vehicle during the practical test, post test debrief and the journey home. This is in addition to any test fees paid to the DVSA which is not included in our prices. In the event that your instructor accompanies you to your driving test and your test does not go ahead due to your negligence (for example getting the wrong day or test centre), then you will still have to pay for our services.

5. The availability of our services for your test is at our discretion and requires all lesson fees to be paid up to date. Our services will be refused if your driving is considered below the standard required for the test or if it is considered you are not likely to reach the required standard in the time available, if your driving standard has been adversely affected by the cancellation of lessons for whatever reason, or you appear unwell or to be affected by alcohol or drugs including medically prescribed drugs.

6. Gift vouchers must be in used within 6 months of purchase. Gift vouchers are not transferable and cannot be re-deemed for cash. However we do allow a 7 day cooling off period and will refund payment in full if the voucher is returned to us within this period.

7. Lesson and test bookings are accepted only on the express understanding that we will not be liable for any costs, expenses, claims or losses caused or incurred following our refusal or inability to provide a car/instructor for lesson/test, for the lack of availability of any car/instructor for a lesson/test or from a cancellation of any lesson/test howsoever caused or for whatever reason. In the event of mechanical breakdown or other difficulties outside control, we reserve the right to rearrange lessons at short notice.

Client Responsibilites:

1. You should also ensure that you meet the requirements for eyesight (you need to be able to read a car registration number from a distance of 20.5 metres with or without eyesight correction) and general fitness to drive.  We are legally required to check your eyesight before any in-car training can take place. It is your responsibility to ensure that you continue to meet the requirements for eyesight and general fitness to drive throughout your training.

2. You will need to bring your driving licence photo-card along to your first session for ID purposes.

3. It is your responsibility to contact us if for any reason you are unable to keep an appointment. Any lessons cancelled or postponed must be paid for unless 48 hours notice is given. Frequent cancellations, regardless of notice given, and long periods in between each lesson are unacceptable, and may result in us withdrawing our services.
