Your instructor’s vehicle will be well maintained, clean and tidy. All vehicles used by the instructors are fitted with dual-controls as part of their standard equipment.

The vehicle of course is fully insured for driving tuition. Your instructor will not smoke in the vehicle while giving tuition, nor will they use your lesson time for any other form of business, personal or otherwise.

At Ladybird Driving School we do lessons from 2 up to 4 hours in order to ensure that our pupils get the maximum benefit from our expert instructors.

Your Instructor is ADI qualified and fully licensed by the Road Safety Authority (RSA) to give driving tuition.

3. Driving Licence

The learner must hold a current, valid driving license (full or learner permit), which must be produced on or in advance of their first lesson. If the lesson is an ‘off road and theory lesson’ it is not necessary to produce a license but any driving must be conducted within the confines of our off road facility.

4. Payments

Payment must be made at the time of booking in order to secure the instructor and vehicle for the duration of the agreed lesson. Please note that all payments are non-refundable . At this point a binding agreement is made between you and Ladybird Driving School. This does not in any way affect your statutory rights to be provided with the goods and services you have bought.

Provided notice is given to the school or to your instructor no later than 48 hours in advance of the lesson, no penalty will apply. Your instructor reserves the right to postpone lessons if he or she feels the weather or road conditions are unsuitable or dangerous. The instructor cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred as a result of him or her having to postpone any lessons, for whatever reason.

6. The Driving Test

a) Bookings

Driving tests can be booked by you or by the school. The driving test bookings always take priority over other lessons. Therefore, your lesson may be postponed to allow for someone else’s driving test and vice-versa. Changes to lesson bookings as a result of this will be notified immediately. Test appointments must be notified to your instructor as soon as they are known; otherwise she cannot guarantee to provide a vehicle for your test.

In the interest of customer and public safety your instructor reserves the right to withhold the use of a vehicle for the test if, in their opinion, your driving is actually or potentially dangerous.

c) Test Cancellation

Ten clear days’ notice of cancellation or postponement is required by the RSA. Failure to provide the required notice will result in the loss of your test fee. Ladybird Driving School cannot be held responsible for any postponement or cancellation by the RSA. However, we will do all that is possible to arrange another test date as quickly as possible.

In their own interests learners are advised to be punctual for their lesson appointments. All such appointments should be recorded (and checked where possible by their instructor) to ensure that mistakes are avoided. The instructor would normally wait a maximum of 45 minutes before the lesson would be abandoned and the lesson fee forfeited. A reciprocal waiting time may become necessary if the instructor is delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. Any lesson time lost as a result of this would be made up by the instructor either at the end of the normal lesson time if possible or at a later date.

9. Learner Comfort and Safety

In the interest of comfort and safety learners are advised to wear suitable footwear and clothing which does not restrict movement. Learners must also take note of any medication they are taking that may affect their ability to drive safely and advise their instructor accordingly before taking any lesson booked.
