Fees & Offers
The current driving lessons fees are £30.00 per hour for a driving lesson. The driving test the cost is £62.00 weekday or £75.00 for a weekend test. The cost of a driving lesson can increase with a minimum of one months’ notice.
You must pay for driving lessons 24 hours before the driving lesson via BACS. Failure to do so will result in the 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, any driving lessons taken will be at the full hourly rate with the rest refunded to you via BACS as proof of the payment.
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 inform their instructor immediately if they receive any endorsements on their driving licence during the period they are receiving 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 being 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 long periods in 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. If you request a different starting or finishing place to that agreed, your driving lesson might have to finish 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 you being ready for the driving test. However, you will need to pay the driving instructor the DVSA test fee before we confirm the booking.
Your driving instructor will then book a date for your driving test that has mutually agreed by both the pupil and the driving instructor.
On the day of the driving test, you will need to pay the following depending on the test centre booked. The price will include a pre-test practice including the drive to test centre, use of the vehicle during the practical test, post-test debrief and the return journey home.
St. Albans £75.00
Leighton Buzzard £90.00
GK Learners reserves the absolute right to refuse the use of their cars for any driving test or driving lessons if:
- We deem your driving to be below the standard required. Also, if you are not likely to reach the required standard in the time available. We will notify you before the cancellation date so not to lose your fee.
- You appear unwell or appear to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, this may include medically prescribed drugs.
- Any fees remain outstanding/unpaid.
