  • Should you fail to reach a satisfactory standard of driving and are likely to be in danger to other road users, or are in an unfit condition due through substance or alcohol abuse, the driving instructor has a responsibility to the DVSA examiners not to allow the use of the training vehicle for the purpose of the driving test.  This is the interest of the pupil, the examiner and other road users and is a precautionary safety measure.  The Driving Vehicle Standard Agency guidelines do not allow for a pupil to take the practical test just for the experience. 

  • No responsibility can be taken for the test cancelled by the DVSA for whatever reason.  Lessons will have to be paid for but can be claimed back from the DVSA. The instructor cannot be held responsible if you fail because of the eyesight test.  Your instructor will be responsible if the test is cancelled due to the condition of the tuition vehicle.
