The training School reserve the right to decline/withdraw training to anyone the School considers unfit (their behaviour to trainers, other students, other road users). In such circumstances the training School would at their discretion consider a full or partial refund depending on circumstances.
The training school will, where possible, match customers with equal skills but this is not guaranteed.

The training School will not tolerate threatening or abusive behaviour in our working environment. Therefore we reserve the right to terminate the course without refund if we are subjected to this type of behaviour.
The school prides itself on its high standards and professional approach to road safety.

If students do not complete any part of the set syllabus we regret we cannot pass them with a C.B.T certificate.
