Terms of Business


Fees & Offers
Lesson fees will be quoted at the time of booking and may be increased at any time with a minimum of 1 month's notice. Fees may be paid by cash or by BACS payment, prior to the lesson. Block booking payments are due at the beginning of your first lesson. Any refunds will be considered. However, any hours used will then be charged at the hourly pay as you go rate and the remainder will be refunded.

Lesson Bookings
Make and confirm all lessons with Ellison's School of Motoring head office or your driving instructor. Where possible, try to give as much notice as possible of dates and times you would like. This will allow you to book your lessons at times that are convenient for you - remember 20 other pupils may also be trying to book lessons in the same week. Lessons will only be classed as booked once they have been confirmed either by your instructor or our head office.

Cancellations
You must give a minimum of 48 hours’ notice if you wish to cancel or change your lesson. Failure to do this will result in the full lesson fee being payable or hours lost if you have prepaid. If you consistently cancel without 48 hours notice you may be required to pay in advance for future lessons.

Pick up & finish location for lessons
You should agree with your instructor where your lessons will start and finish when making any lesson booking. Changes to your pick up and finish location will only be considered if good notice is given. If you request a different meeting or finishing place to that already agreed, your lesson may be shortened to cover any additional traveling time to avoid disrupting other lessons and tests.

Test dates
To avoid disappointment and/or loss of money please ensure you agree dates and times with your driving instructor prior to booking your test. Ensure that you bring the required documentation to your test. This is your responsibility. Documents required are detailed on your booking confirmation.

  • If your driving standard has been adversely affected by the cancellation of lessons for whatever reason.
  • If you appear unwell or to be affected by the influence of alcohol or drugs including medically prescribed drugs.
  • If any fees remain unpaid.

I always thought learning to drive would be very difficult but my instructor Steve made things very simple and easy to understand. I would recommend everyone who wants driving lessons in Taunton to take driving lessons with Ellisons School of Motoring. Thank you so much Steve. I am now a confident and safe driver.
