  2. How do I book a Course?
    1. Courses are available in all areas of England, Scotland and Wales. Pricing for specific locations at a given time, is available by entering your postcode into price finder on our website.
    2. By booking a Course, you confirm that you hold, or are eligible for, a valid UK provisional driving licence.
    3. Upon booking a Course, you will be required to complete an online details form (the “Details Form”). This is accessible via the PassMeFast Student Portal (the “Student Portal”) for which you’ll receive an invite via email at the time of booking a Course. Your Course can not be progressed until the “Details Form” has been completed, although payment may be taken from your account.
    4. By making payment for your Course (see Section 7 below) PassMeFast agrees to act as your agent to help you prepare to pass your driving test by managing and booking your Test(s), connecting you to an Instructor and performing any further services provided for under the specification of your Course.
  3. Our policy on Lessons
    1. When you make a booking with PassMeFast, you are entering into a separate agreement for the Lessons which is solely between yourself and the Instructor who is self-employed and independent from PassMeFast. PassMeFast will not be a party to this agreement, nor shall PassMeFast be liable for any claims arising regarding your Instructor, except where we are at fault.
    2. PassMeFast guarantees to you that any Instructor to whom you are connected shall be a Suitable Instructor. It is your responsibility to:
    3. make arrangements as to timing and start location of Lessons with your Instructor directly; and
    4. to raise and resolve any issues or concerns relating to the behaviour or performance of your Instructor with them directly in the first instance.
    5. At the point of booking your Course, PassMeFast may enquire as to your preferences regarding:
      1. your Instructor;
      2. your Instructor’s car’s make and model for safety reasons; and
      3. the timing of Lessons/Tests.
    6. PassMeFast will attempt to match customers with an Instructor aligned to their preferences as indicated at point of booking a Course however we cannot guarantee this. Should your preferences, including your availability for Lessons, change after point of purchase, you should attempt to agree these changes with your Instructor in the first instance. PassMeFast can make no guarantee that your Instructor will be able to accommodate your revised preferences. If we cannot reallocate your Instructor due to a change in preferences and you wish to cancel your Contract with us, we will refund any unused Lesson hours at your Instructor’s rate, but we will retain all other fees paid to us by you under this Contract.
    7. PassMeFast will, as your agent and on your behalf, purchase for you from your Instructor Lessons in such block booking package as may be offered by your Instructor (a “Lesson Block”). For example up to 10 Lesson period block. Reducing your Course hours is not possible once an Instructor has been allocated since you have purchased a set Lesson Block on booking your Course. PassMeFast will make payments to your Instructor in accordance with your Lesson plan (visible on the Student Portal). Each payment shall cover the full value of each Lesson Block and shall be paid by PassMeFast to the Instructor prior to you completing the first Lesson of that block. The total number of Lessons purchasable by PassMeFast on your behalf will depend on the Course purchased.
    8. It is your responsibility to keep track of the number of Lessons undertaken with your Instructor, and any issues with Lesson scheduling should be raised in accordance with Section 6. You must have reasonable availability for Lessons on a weekly basis. Reasonable availability is dependent on the Course intensity selected and must include a minimum of 25 hours per week in total. You acknowledge that if you have restricted availability and cannot complete Lessons within core daytime hours (8am to 4pm) your Course may take longer than the Course completion times stated at the point of purchase of your Course.
    9. The total Course hours include any breaks that the Instructor feel is necessary for the safety of both you and the Instructor, in accordance with any regulations.
    10. You have six months after booking the Course to start your Lessons, unless agreed otherwise between you and PassMeFast. If an agreement is not made and your Lessons have not started within this six-month period, your Initial Payment (see Section 7) and proportionate fees incurred by us will be non-refundable (excluding any unused Lesson hours), unless we have booked your Tests and allocated an Instructor to you in which case you will not receive a refund of any fees paid to us by you under this Contract.
    11. When making an advance booking, usually because you are not yet 17 and/or you do not have a valid provisional licence you agree that we reserve the right to review the price of the Course on the date we are able to progress with the booking. This would typically be the date you turn 17, or the date you are able to provide us with valid provisional licence details.
  4. Can I change or cancel my Lessons?
    1. Each Instructor has their own policy regarding cancellation or rearrangement of Lessons. It is your responsibility to ask your Instructor what their policy is and to comply with their policy. As standard you must give 48 hours’ notice directly to your Instructor to cancel or re-arrange Lessons (unless otherwise notified by your Instructor). If you do not provide the correct notice to cancel or re-arrange Lessons, it will be assumed that you have forfeit those Lessons and the Instructor will still receive payment for those Lessons, in line with Section 5.
    2. Once your Tests are booked and an Instructor has been allocated to your Course, the Fees (as defined in Section 7) are non-refundable unless otherwise set out in Section 3, Section 4 and Section 10.
    3. It is not possible to change Instructor once allocated unless there is a material issue with your Instructor (as judged at the entire discretion of PassMeFast assessed on a case by case basis, we call this a “Material Issue”) or Section 5 applies below. Should we judge that there is a Material Issue with your Instructor which deems them to be an Unsuitable Instructor, will try our best to connect you with a replacement Instructor in such circumstances and you will not be charged an admin fee for this reallocation, PassMeFast will purchase a fresh Lesson Block from your replacement Instructor out of the balance of the Course fees paid to PassMeFast. Examples of Material Issues with Instructors include: the Instructor not attending a Lesson on multiple occasions or conducting the Lesson in a manner judged by us to be wholly incompetent (unless due to your fault or a fault beyond their reasonable control) or the Vehicle being completely unsafe to operate causing a danger to you. Material Issues do not include by way of example, the Instructor being late or cancelling a Lesson due to reasons beyond their reasonable control such as bad weather, break down of the vehicle, ill health, bereavement and any issues you may have with the personality type of your Instructor (unless there has been a complete breakdown in trust and confidence as judged by us) (we call these “Non-Material Issues”). For the avoidance of doubt,  a Non-Material Issue does not deem an Instructor to be an Unsuitable Instructor.
    4. If we are unable to issue you with a replacement Instructor in accordance with Section 3 above we will refund you in accordance with our refunds policy (see Section 10).
    5. Should you relocate or wish to change your Course type due to a change in your location please contact us as soon as possible and although we will try to facilitate the required changes to your Instructor and/or Course we cannot guarantee this. However, this is subject to you paying any cost difference associated with the changes (ie. increased Instructor fees in your new area or you requiring a new vehicle type) and an admin fee of £30 per change. You also accept that these changes will mean that your Course may take longer than the Course completion times stated at the point of purchase of your Course. In this case, you take on the risk posed by the changes and will not be eligible for a refund under our Money-Back Guarantee (see Section 8) should we fail to successfully rearrange your Course.
    6. PassMeFast cannot guarantee that the prices charged by a replacement Instructor will be equivalent to those of your original Instructor. A change of Instructor may therefore result in a change to the price of the Course. Additional Lessons may be added to your Course at additional cost via the Student Portal.
  5. What should I do before, during and after a Lesson?
    1. Any arrangements for the Lessons, including the start time and start location, shall be agreed between you and the Instructor directly.
    2. You must bring your valid UK provisional driving licence and present it to the Instructor at the start of your first Lesson. You must bring your licence with you to all of your Lessons and Tests. Failure to do so may result in the Lesson and/or Test being cancelled without a refund.
    3. It is your responsibility to be on time for your Lessons. As the Instructor may have other Lessons to deliver, the Lessons will not be extended to compensate for you arriving late.
    4. The Instructor may refuse to proceed with a Lesson if you use abusive language or threatening behaviour, or if you fail to act on any reasonable request made by the Instructor. You must come prepared to the Lesson including with appropriate footwear to undertake the The Instructor may also refuse to proceed if they believe you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the Lesson. PassMeFast accepts no responsibility due to the Lesson being cancelled or unable to be fulfilled due to your failure to comply with this Section 5.
    5. Any concerns relating to your Instructor’s behaviour or performance should be communicated directly to your Instructor in the first instance. We would also request that you log any issues with your Instructor on the Student Portal so that we are aware of these, and contact our Customer Support team to discuss, within 72 hours of the scheduled Lesson. All issues referred to PassMeFast will be treated in confidence and whilst we shall endeavour to retain confidentiality where reasonably possible, there may be circumstances, deemed by PassMeFast, in which we will to communicate with to your Instructor and/or contact the DVSA in line with their code of conduct. We may use the information provided by you in determining whether that Instructor should be connected to any future PassMeFast customers.
    6. You must provide feedback via the Student Portal to indicate if a Lesson did not take place within 72 hours of the scheduled Lesson time. This will enable PassMeFast to efficiently, where possible, facilitate any disputes on your behalf. You must also endeavour to communicate to us any issues associated with your Lessons within 72 hours of the Lesson to enable PassMeFast to resolve any issues associated with your Course in a timely manner.
    7. If you do not attend a Lesson, the Instructor will be entitled to keep the full tuition fee of the missed Lesson and the Lesson time will be deducted from your Course hours (unless otherwise agreed with your Instructor). No refunds will be due from PassMeFast in such circumstances for any reason.
