If you have any cause for complaint please speak to Barry in the first instance. If you are still unhappy then the code of practice will give you information regarding the next step to take.

cf14 School Of Motoring is taking a zero tolerance approach to physical and verbal assaults against its staff. If your instructor feels threatened or intimidated by you the ´client´ Your instructor will initially remind them of this policy and if necessary ABANDON this and any FUTURE lessons. The onus is then on you, the ´client´ to make your own arrangements to return to your drop off location at no cost to cf14 School Of Motoring. Barry will be immediately informed of the incident and the ´client´ will be prevented from taking additional lessons and NO REFUND offered. All our Training Cars are fitted with the latest ´Dash Cams´ with both audio and visual recording facilities. This will be preserved by your Instructor, and if necessary used in evidence to support any subsequent prosecution.

Payment & Methods of Payment: Your driving instructor will provide you the ‘client’ with driving tuition at the rate per hour as per the price list advertised on our website. Payment for tuition should be made in advance using a debit or credit card atcf14 School Of Motoring. Currently we are unable to take ´cash´ due to the ´Pandemic´ and Gov´t advice on cash handling!

Please note that all fees paid to cf14 School Of Motoring for lessons and courses are non refundable, therefore in the event that you decide to cancel the course or lesson no refund will be issued. cf14 School Of Motoring will however give a full refund if we are unable to meet any special requirements that have been noted on the booking form.

In the unlikely event of non-payment, a small but fair additional fee of £1.25 will be added to the cost of the lesson as this causes additional unnecessary work to raise an invoice. Each additional ´Reminder´ invoice will incur further fees of £1.25 for each additional invoice! Please monitor your spam emails as this will be no excuse for non-payment. If need be, reminders will be sent on day following your lesson, the third & seventh day following your lesson. If payment is still not forthcoming, any confirmed lessons, will subsequently be cancelled without notice, making them available to paying customers.

Lesson cancellations: Cancellations can be made by the ‘client’ directly on-line up to 48 hours prior to any lesson booked at no charge. ‘Clients’ will receive an automated email (provided they have supplied a valid email address) 48 hours prior to each lesson, to remind them of their booking.

At this point, you the ‘client’ need to follow the directions on our website and complete a ‘Pre- Lessons Safety Assessment’ to ensure that both yourself as the candidate and your Instructors, are fully informed of ANY health conditions or concerns either of may have regarding personal safety during our driving lesson together.

Simply follow the guidance on the home page of our website in the tab ‘48hrs Prior To Lessons’.If you the ‘client’ need to cancel, they must then contact their Instructor immediately, otherwise the lesson fees will still be chargeable and not be refunded.

If however you have to self-isolate due to ´Coronavirus´ It is vitally important you tell your instructor in advance, you will not be charged a cancellation fee regardless if less than 48hrs notice, but you will be unable to re-commence lessons for a minimum of 2 weeks after notification
