Terms And Conditions For GK Learners

GK Learners Hemel Hempstead


Fees & Offers

The current driving lessons fees are Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm £30.00 per hour. Driving lessons booked outside these hours, including bank holidays, will be charged at £35.00 per hour. 

You must pay for driving lessons 24 hours before the driving lesson via BACS. Failure to do so will result in the driving lesson not going ahead. If you pay by making a block booking payment, then block booking payments are due 24 hours before your first lesson. If you decide you want to cancel your driving lessons mid-way through your block booking period, then

any driving lessons taken will be charged at the standard hourly rate. The outstanding monies will be refunded to you via BACS as proof of the payment.

Lesson bookings. 

You will need to make and confirm all lessons with your driving instructor. Where possible, try to give as much notice as possible of dates and times you would like. Your driving instructor can try to book (if possible) the driving lessons convenient for you. Pupils must certify that a current suitable driving licence is active to drive the tuition vehicle. Pupils must immediately inform their instructor if they receive any endorsements on their driving licence when they receive tuition that would render their licence invalid.

Cancellations of driving lessons. 

You must give a minimum of 24 hours notice if you wish to cancel or change your driving lesson. Failure to do this will cause the full lesson fee to be payable or hours lost if you have prepaid. If you consistently cancel without giving 24 hours notice, it may require you to pay in advance for future lessons. Excessive cancellations and prolonged periods between each lesson session are unacceptable and may cause us to withdraw our services as your driving instruction provider. If you cancel a lesson because of symptoms of COVID-19, you will not lose your fee, but you cannot book another driving lesson for 14 days. If you have a driving test within the 14-day self-isolation period, we cannot take you for the driving test.

Pick up & finishing location.

You should agree with your driving instructor where your lessons will start and finish when making any driving lesson bookings. Changes to your pickup and finish location can change by mutual agreement with your instructor. A request for a change of starting or finishing place to that agreed, your driving lesson might have to end early to cover any additional travelling time to avoid disrupting other driving lessons or driving tests.

The practical driving test.

GK Learners can book the practical test on your behalf in anticipation of being ready for the driving test. However, you will need to pay the driving instructor the DVSA test fee before confirming the booking.

Your driving instructor will then book a date for your driving test mutually agreed upon by both the pupil and the driving instructor.

On the day of the driving test, you will need to pay the following fee depending on the test centre booked. The price will include a pre-test practice, including the drive to the test centre, the vehicle’s use during the practical test, post-test debrief, and the return journey home.

  • We deem your driving to be below the standard required to take a driving test. If you are not likely to reach the required standard in the time available, we will notify you before the cancellation date to not lose your fee.
  • You appear unwell or appear to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and this may include medically prescribed drugs.
  • Any fees remain outstanding/unpaid.
