Welcome to nicedriving

Thank you for choosing nicedriving as your training provider.


Please read the following carefully to get the most from your course:


1)    Visit the website www.nicedriving.co.uk especially the Student Resources Page to recap your learning.

2)    ‘Like’  www.facebook.com/Nicedriving to keep up to date with last minute news, and short notice extra lesson availability.

3)    Follow the link www.nicedriving.theorytestpro.co.uk to study for your theory test. It’s FREE for you to use as a nicedriving pupil. After following the link and registering I can grant you full access.

4)    Download the Highway Code for FREE

5)    Download Know Your Traffic Signs for FREE

6)    If you will be taking private practice in another car there is an alternative to being named on the owners insurance. Comprehensive cover in your own name on that vehicle can be taken at www.collingwoodlearners.co.uk  using the reference 235210.

7)    Theory tests and practical tests are booked via www.gov.uk/book-theory-test and www.gov.uk/book-driving-test . Using any other platform on the internet is likely to send you through a third party who will charge you a booking fee which is totally unnecessary.

8)    Some insurance discounts can be obtained when you pass by completing a Pass Plus course. Please see www.gov.uk/pass-plus

 

It is recommended that you start to study for your theory test at the beginning of your course, using the resources above.


Terms and conditions

 

You, the pupil, must promptly make clearly known to your instructor any medical condition or other effect that may impair your ability to drive, whereupon your instructor will take the appropriate action to conform to his legal or moral obligations.

 

Your instructor will at all times endeavour to comply with appointment arrangements, but cannot be held responsible for any inconvenience due to unforeseen events.


For GDPR compliance no personal data will be recorded or stored other than your name and telephone number for contact purposes. This information will be deleted within 30 days of your course completion. No data will be shared with any other individual or organisation. You may request to see what information is being held about you at any time.

 

Once you have booked a lesson, you have an obligation to keep your appointment. You, the pupil must give at least 36 HOURS NOTICE of any lesson cancellation for ANY reason, or a short notice cancellation charge of £15 (for each 60 minutes or part thereof booked) will still be payable. 72 hours notice for courses of 3 hours or more. If you are unsure as to whether you will be available for a lesson, don’t book it until you are sure you can keep to it.

The FULL lesson price will be charged if you fail to show without any notice.

 

Your driving test is a contract between yourself and the DVSA. If your test is cancelled at short notice by the DVSA, your lesson fee is still payable. Your lesson fee is then to be claimed by yourself from the DVSA who will reimburse such expenses. A receipt will be provided for you to do this.

Once a test is booked you are advised to regularly check your emails for test appointment adjustments made by the DVSA.


It is your responsibility to ensure your licence remains valid throughout your course, and any adjustments to your licence are brought to your instructors attention at the earliest opportunity.

 

Your instructor reserves the absolute right to refuse the loan of the vehicle for the purpose of taking your driving test, if doing so would be putting anyone, or the vehicle at an unacceptable risk.

 

Your instructor will not be held responsible for damage or marking to clothing as a result of coming into contact with areas of the vehicle subjected to road dirt, brake dust, mechanical oils or grease when partaking in the Show Me, Tell Me section of the course or practical test. Gloves are provided at your request.
