2020/2021 changes

What a year 2020 has been!

We'd like to start off by saying thank you to all of our pupils who have been wonderful over the past year, and have been patient with us whilst we've waited for DVSA updates, waited for driving tests to be rearranged, and whilst we've had to prioritise pupils who've got tests coming up.

If you are in a rush and want a quick summary, here it is!

We would really appreciate it if you could continue reading though, and understand our reasons for the changes :)

  1. From 1st February 2021, prices will be increasing to £32 per hour

  2. From 3rd December 2020, the cancellation policy will be increased to a 48 hour notice period

  3. From 3rd December 2020, all instructors will have Sum Up card machines in car for your use - payments can be made via bank transfer or through the Sum Up card machine

  4. From 3rd December 2020, lesson payments must be made before the lesson starts

After lockdown #1, many instructors increased their prices to take into account additional expenses incurred for buying cleaning products and lost income. We decided to keep our prices the same throughout, and had planned to increase our prices in January 2021.

Due to lockdown #2 and with Christmas coming up, we have decided NOT to increase our prices in January. We have decided to increase them from 1st February 2021 instead. This is to give you time to get back to some sense of normality and recover from lockdown #2 and Christmas.

So, from 1st February 2021, prices will go up to:

1 hour: £32

1.5 hour: £48

2 hour: £64

Test day: £65

(1 hour lesson pre test, plus 40 min test, plus time to debrief and get you home)

Block booking, 10 hours: £300

We have done our best to keep prices as low as possible, and for as long as possible.

We are only sorry that we can't keep our prices at £30 for longer!

If you have already pre-paid for 10 hours up front, any remaining pre-pay will remain at the price you paid for it.

For example, if you paid for 10 hours pre-pay on the old price of £280 on 28th January, nothing will change until you have used up that pre-pay. Once that pre-pay has been used, you will then start paying the new price.

Other changes

Cancellation policy

Due to how busy we are, we are finding that lessons that are cancelled with just 24 hours notice, does not give us enough time to contact other pupils and fill those spaces. Therefore, the instructor loses income when lessons are cancelled so soon before the lesson is due to begin.

We have decided to increase the cancellation notice period to 48 hours - you must give 48 hours notice if you would like to cancel your lesson.
