The following Terms and Conditions represent the basis upon which driving lessons and courses are offered to you by Bootcamp Driving School and Must be accepted before undertaking any Instruction with the School. Please note the contract for service is between yourself and your Bootcamp Driving School Instructor. Bootcamp Driving School operates this business which has been agreed to be bound by the following terms and conditions.
1. General Conduct
Bootcamp Driving School is bound by a Professional Code of Conduct. Your Instructor will be courteous, polite, tidy and punctual. He will be friendly, helpful and approachable. He will behave in a Professional and ethical manner at all times. He will promise to teach the Road Safety Authority (RSA) syllabus of training and to promote Safe Driving for Life. Your tuition vehicle will be well maintained, road worthy and NCT checked if applicable. It will be clean and tidy and is Professionally fitted with dual-controls as part of its standard equipment. The Bootcamp Driving School tuition vehicle is of course, fully taxed and insured for driving tuition.
Your Instructor does not smoke and will NOT allow smoking in the Bootcamp Driving School vehicle while giving tuition. It should be noted that if the pupil is undertaking a lesson in his/her own vehicle, that while nerves play a big part in learning to drive, smoking should strongly be avoided by the pupil during the course of his/her lesson for safety reasons, if not, for the health of the Instructor. After all, you won't be allowed to smoke during your actual Driving Test. Your Instructor will NOT use your lesson time for any other form of business, personal or otherwise.
As a minimum, your Instructor will be licensed by the Road Safety Authority (RSA) to give driving tuition, and is a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI)
3. Course Materials
Various Driving Skills materials from books to DVDs are available to purchase from Bootcamp Driving School. Please talk to your Instructor in reference to your needs.The Instructor will discuss your personal development and easy ways of learning at the end of your first lesson.
4. Driving Licence
The learner must hold a current, valid Driving License (Learner Permit or Full), which must be produced on, or in advance, of their first lesson.
Please note that all payments which operate on a Pay As You Go (PAYG) basis will be collected in advance at the start of each lesson. This is to keep it fair to customers who use our online PayPal facility and who pay for their lessons in advance also.
Please note that any deposit or subsequent training fees or Driving Test fees paid, are not refundable in the event that you decide to cancel the training once the booking has been accepted by Bootcamp Driving School. At this point a binding agreement is made between yourself and Bootcamp Driving School. This does not in any way affect your statutory rights to be provided with the service you have bought (please refer to Term 11).
6. Lesson Cancellation Policy
Provided the Instructor can easily obtain additional work for any lessons postponed, no penalty will be incurred. If lessons are cancelled giving less than 24 hrs notice the full training fee for the period in question will be charged. Bootcamp Driving School reserves the right to postpone lessons if it feels that the weather or road conditions are unsuitable or dangerous.
7. The Driving Test
Driving Tests can be booked by you or your Instructor on your behalf. 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. Driving Test appointments MUST be notified to Bootcamp Driving School as soon as they are known, otherwise we cannot guarantee to provide you with the School vehicle on the day of your test.
b. Use Of The Vehicle
Normally you will conduct your Driving Test in the Bootcamp Driving School tuition vehicle. The Car Hire and Pre-Lesson fee is applicable here. If you wish, you may of course take the Driving Test in your own vehicle, but the responsibility of having your own vehicle road worthy, taxed, insured and test ready relies solely with you. In the interests of customer and public safety, the Instructor reserves the right to withhold the use of the School car for the test if, in his Professional opinion, you’re driving is not up to Driving Test standard or is actually/potentially dangerous.
c. Test Cancellation
If you decide to let Bootcamp Driving School book your Driving Test for you, then you agree that Bootcamp Driving School cannot be held responsible for any postponement or cancellation of tests authorised by the Road Safety Authority (RSA)
In their own interests learners are advised to be punctual for their lesson appointments. All such appointments should be recorded on the appointment record card and checked where possible to ensure that mistakes are avoided. The Bootcamp Driving School Instructor will normally wait for a maximum of 15 minutes before the lesson would be abandoned and the lesson fee forfeited or become due for payment. A reciprocal waiting time may become necessary if the Bootcamp Driving School 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. Any such shortfall will be recorded on the appointment record card and initialled by the Bootcamp Driving School Instructor.

In the interests of comfort and safety, learners are advised to wear suitable footwear and clothing which does not restrict movement.
