The 'Terms and Conditions' listed below represent the basis upon which all driving lessons and driving courses (intensive driving courses or otherwise) are offered to the public by 'IDC London' - www.intensivedrivingcourseslondon.com.

Please note that it is a requirement by IDC London - www.intensivedrivingvcourseslondon.com that all pupils must agree in writing to abide by our terms and conditions set out below before their intensive driving course takes place. Furthermore, the IDC London contract of service is between the pupil concerned and his/her allocated driving instructor. 

1. Cancellation:
In the event of a driving lesson, intensive driving course or part thereof being cancelled, no penalty will be incurred providing that the www.intensivedrivingcourseslondon.com (herein referred to as IDC London) driving instructor can source alternative work for the same training period in question (this only applies to the remaining course fees paid and not the deposit payment as any and all deposit payments paid are 'non-refundable'). If this is not possible, the full training fee for the said training period may, at the discretion of the IDC London Driving instructor, be charged in full.
 Therefore, to ensure your APD instructor can source alternative work, the cancellation of an intensive driving course will only be accepted within 7 working days (not including Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holidays) of an intensive driving course being booked.
Cancellation of a short notice intensive driving course(i.e. where start date is less than 7 days from date of booking), will NOT be possible and full payment of the booked intensive driving course fees will be required. If payment is not paid in full, legal assistamce may be sought in order to recover the said intensive driving course fees.
If a pupil decides to cancel their intensive driving course before the said intensive driving course is completed, it is agreed that IDC London will NOT refund any monies paid. However, as an act of goodwill we will gladly discount any future intensive driving course booked by the said pupil within 3 months of them cancelling their original intensive driving course.  All other driving lessons require 48 hours notice of cancellation.Failure to comply with our cancellation policy will result in any intensive driving course or driving lesson booked being charged in full.Cancellation requests must be made in writing and emailed to info@intensivedrivingcourseslondon.com

2. Time Keeping:
All pre-agreed driving lessons must commence/finish on times agreed between pupil and driving instructor. If the pupil is late for his/her lesson for any reason, the time will still be chargeable.
If the driving instructor is late, the time will be added on at the end of the lesson or at another time suitable for the pupil
. In situations where this isn't convenient for the pupil, then the time will not be chargeable.

3. Discounted Lessons:
From time to time we offer block bookings (5 or 10 lessons) at discounted rates. If for any reason a refund is requiredfor any outstanding lessons, the lessons taken will be charged at our standard hourly rate.
Example 1: 10 lessons are purchased for £160 and only 5 lessons are taken. If the hourly rate was £22 at time of a refund request, the total charge for lessons taken will be "5 x £22" = £110, leaving a refund of £50.
Example 2: Our standard 15 hour intensive driving course at time of writing is £437. We discount this by offering to pay for the practical driving test (currently £62) and then offer a further reduction of £40, bringing our 15 hour intensive driving course down to an overall price of £335 - a huge reduction.
If a pupil purchases this course (or any other intensive driving course offered by IDC London) and decides to cancel their intensive driving course, i.e. that they no longer want to continue their intensive driving course for whatever reason, then any discounts applied to this or any other intensive driving course are null and void and any refund considered, would be based on the original IDC London course cost.

4. Intensive Driving Course Information:
A non-refundable deposit is to be paid prior to IDC London booking a prospective pupil onto an intensive driving course. It should be noted that any deposit paid OR any subsequent tuition fees paid are NOT refundable in the event that a pupil decides to cancel his/her period of driving tuition once the relevant booking has been accepted and agreed by IDC London and the pupil concerned.
