Please read these notes carefully, they contain important information on the training syllabus and taking your practical driving test (car).

 

 

Your car

 

You must provide a roadworthy car which is taxed, insured, and suitable for the purposes of the test.

The car must have seat belts, a built-in headrest fitted to the front passenger seat and an adjustable rear-view mirror inside the car for the examiner to use.

The car must also display L-plates (or D-plates in Wales) that meet the current regulations when you are driving with a provisional licence.

If you are taking professional driving lessons from a recognized establishment then the above details will be dealt with automatically. However, if you are using your own vehicle then the above notes are your own responsibility.

The tuition vehicle used will be a manual geared car when you engage Driving Test Doctors UK for your training. However, we will accept students with pleasure in an automatic geared car when they provide their own vehicle.

 

Documents you should bring with you

 

Please bring your theory test pass certificate or confirmation, if this applies, and your valid UK or Northern Ireland driving licence when you come for your test. We will not accept any other driving licence.

If you have a photocard-style licence, you must bring both parts of the licence (photocard and paper counterpart) to the test. If you haven’t got your licence, or if you have a question about your licence entitlements, please phone the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) on 0870 240 0009. If you have a photographic licence, your examiner will carry out a security check before the test begins.

If your licence does not have your photograph on it, you will also need to bring an acceptable form of photographic identity when you come for your test.

The photographic evidence we will accept is shown below.

 

  • Your passport..

  •  

  • You should also bring your booking confirmation letter with you to the test.

 

General information

 

The duration of the programme you have enrolled to will consist of driving and tuition time that is defined as and includes: (a) The driving test period (assuming the full syllabus has been completed). (b) Verbal rectification/instruction and log creating for the purpose of progression on the course. (c) At least one short break for refreshment and verbal discussions on a module that is longer than 3 hours in length.

 

Programme Assessment Upon Enrolment

 

The course you have enrolled to shall be an assessment on your needs from the information you previously disclosed at the initial stages of your application. Driving Test Doctors UK shall not be responsible for any false, incorrect, deceptive or misleading information supplied by yourself (or your representative) concerning your current driving status should the assessment prove to be inaccurate once the course is being conducted. Previous driving programmes and any DVSA test appointments conducted (and consequently failure of such) with any other tutor or driving school not connected to DTD UK will of course be taken into consideration as an assessment of your needs. However, the evaluation given by your previous tutor/school so as to reach a safe and proper standard in the future may not be a correct, appropriate or precise reflection of your future learner-driving needs that would conform to the standards required of DTD UK and of course DVSA. Therefore, we cannot guarantee any disclosed information at the application stage (or indeed our own assessment) is a positive and true account of the number of hours of tuition that will be required within your learner-driver needs so as to reach a safe and proper standard of driving within the time allocated. It is furthermore stressed, we will not (and indeed cannot) be held responsible for any unskilled or improper evaluations from any non-DTD UK employed ADI, trainer and/or private tutor pertaining to your previous learner-driving career before you enrolled to a course within our company. You need to be fully aware that the course you have enrolled to may indeed fall short of you being ready and safe for test presentation. This could be through a reflection on your learning abilities and/or because of the notes above. Should this transpire you will not be taken forward to the test appointment on the grounds of safety and any DVSA fees that have previously been paid for the test appointment will be forfeited.

 

Taking your test.

 

We produce several publications and items to help you prepare for your test. If you would like to know more about these, please go to our website at www.dsa.gov.uk

From 1 September 2003 we have introduced vehicle safety questions for all practical driving tests. You may need to open your car’s bonnet during this part of the test.

There are a certain number of people who will either pass or fail the test. If you drive to the necessary standard, you will pass your test. We have produced a free leaflet Safe Driving For Life, which explains more about learning to drive and what to expect on your test. You can get copies from all our offices, test centres and on our website at www.dsa.gov.uk/learners/learners.htm

 

Driving Test Doctors UK (your tutors) will submit a signed declaration form to the testing examiner to show you have reached the necessary safe and required standard to be presented for this exam. Thus, you will have completed the full training syllabus. However, should you fall short of the mandatory training syllabus requirements and consequently have not reached the satisfactory safe level expected of you, then the test cannot go ahead and it will be forfeited on the grounds of safety. If you are taking an intensive driving programme and the test appointment falls within the same week of the course, then you may loose your booking fee if you have not completed the full training syllabus (DVSA require 3 clear days notice).

 

A supervising officer may go with you on your test. This is part of our quality-assurance procedure. The supervisor will not be examining you and will not take any part in the test. They are there to make sure we are maintaining our standards in carrying out the tests. You can also ask a friend or your instructor to go with you on the test, but they must also not take any part in the test.

 

After the test

 

At the end of the test (pass or fail), your examiner will offer you an explanation of your driving test report and you might like to ask your instructor to listen-in while the explanation is being given.

 

You will find details of our service standards and complaints procedures in our Service Standards leaflets available from all our offices and test centres. You can also find more information about our services on our website www.dsa.gov.uk

 

DTD UK Driving programmes and cancellations

 

Single one-hour slots may be cancelled or changed giving 48 hours notice. Full driving programmes of 2 hours and above will require 6 weeks warning so as to replace the vacant and previously booked spaces (check your file for updated info). If these notes are not observed then the full lesson/programme costs are to be paid in full by the learner driver student or their representative. Non-attendance/late arrival to a lesson will be charged for at the full rate (your tutor will typically wait for 15 minutes after which the programme/lesson of that day will then be terminated).

 

Driving programme complaints procedure

 

You can write to: Driving Test Doctors UK. Head Office. 41, Breach Road, Denby Village, Derbyshire. DE5 8PS. This is the address for all complaints concerning your programme. E-mail communication and/or telephone messages will not be accepted as any formal acknowledgement of your grievance. A reply will be initiated within 14 days.

 

Confidentiality

 

We will not disclose any information pertaining to your driving programme with any other person. If you wish to have your driving programme discussed with a third party relative, friend, partner or close acquaintance then DTD UK will require written confirmation concerning this request and the file must be signed by the student learner.

 

Drinking and driving; Drugs

 

There is a zero tolerance on drinking and driving. Any student found to be suspected of having consumed any amount of alcohol before a lesson period will immediately have their full programme terminated.  If you are on any medication whatsoever then you must inform your tutor before the lesson begins.

 

Physical and/or verbal and/or argumentative abuse

 

We take a very serious view concerning abuse to our company and all its employed tutors. This behaviour will not be suffered. You will need to be aware of the following:

In the case of physical abuse: A written notice will be given. Your driving programme will now be terminated with immediate effect. You will not be allowed to continue with any on-going course either now or in the future and your name may be circulated throughout the learner-driver industry so as to warn any other potential school of your abuse. We take a very strong view against this sort of practice and additionally your name and details may be given to our solicitor for contemplation of suing. There will be no refund of monies paid for the programme that is now closed.

In the case of verbal and/or argumentative abuse: A written notice will be given. Should you (the learner-driver) make any further or future address of verbal and/or argumentative abuse then your driving programme will be terminated with immediate effect. You will not be allowed to continue with any on-going course either now or in the future and your name may be circulated throughout the learner-driver industry so as to warn any other potential school of your abuse. There will be no refund of monies paid for the programme should it become closed.

 

Medical Concerns

 

We need to know in advance and well before the programme starts of any known medical conditions (physical and/or psychological). Non-disclosure of such may impede your progress and/or conflict with the training syllabus.

 

The training syllabus

 

Part one: We will assess your learning skills and current driving status. Part two: You will participate in the recommended DVSA training syllabus to achieve a safe and proper standard within your driving career. Log creating will be an important part of your training and we aim to accomplish a top score mark in all subjects so as you can drive independently and without help from your tutor. Part three: Should you have a test appointment at the end of the programme then you will be required to participate in a test assessment module to evaluate your progress and ability so as to drive without any help. This assessment will take place near the end of the course (usually around the day before the test period or at your tutor’s discretion). If all is going well you will initiate the final training modules for test presentation as are noted below. Should your progress be somewhat under par (for whatever reason) and you are not scoring 5 in all subjects, then you will not be presented for the practical exam on the grounds of safety and you will have this explained to you at this moment in time. The remainder of the course will then be concentrated on your weaknesses. Part four: Test preparation (if applicable and you have been successful in part three). Part five: The practical exam (if applicable and you have been successful in parts three and four).

 

Course termination and/or alterations

 

Driving Test Doctors UK shall have the sole right to terminate or alter any driving course and/or driving test appointment without prior notice and for whatever reason should your conduct be unreasonable or through an unsuccessful training course. The above said company shall also have the right to alter, change and/or remove any previously said training module within the standard tutoring syllabus for whatever reason. 

Deposits

 

Your commitment to the programme is accepted when you have made the deposit. This deposit is a processing fee to arrange the course you require and involves a substantial amount of work. If you decide at later date to cancel the programme, then the deposit will be forfeited. Therefore, please note we are unable to refund your initial commitment fee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please make sure you read this information carefully and also you thoroughly understand its contents – thank you.

 

The file has been designed to assist with any questions that could arise from an uncertainty of our policies.

 

(1)

The lesson and or course charges are quoted to the student at the beginning of the application for a programme. The costs will not alter on this specific course and may include the driving test fee and the theory exam fee payable to the DVSA (please check your quote file). However, the course specified shall have to remain an estimate of the learner-driver needs to reach a safe driving standard and indeed the lessons booked may also fall short of you being ready for the test. Thus, it may become necessary to alter the course structure for the benefit of a successful learning programme to transpire. Should this be the case then extra lessons for a continued course at a later date will be charged at an appropriate rate compared equally to the original quotation and will become due on request. Any additional lessons recommended do not have to be completed by the student and therefore they can be refused without bias to the remaining programme. Additional lessons in any length of a programme re-booked will have the same conditions of service, terms and code of practice as within the first initial training course you have enrolled to.

 

(2)

The guarantee that relates to your specific course and the tutoring services we provide is defined as an insurance/assurance, security or warranty against a driving test failure. It is our intention to recompense our full driving course clientele (the student whom is initially a complete novice upon enrolment) with a promise of returned tuition at no cost to them and also a test booking. The considerations of the test fee will only be made payable to the DVSA booking office for another appointment and these costs cannot be made directly to the student. Hence, please note – The guarantee is not a certainty of a test pass and therefore should not be confused with such. You must therefore be sure of the guaranteed message we offer here and it’s true values and meanings in this particular situation. All guarantee claims will have a form provided for completion.

 

(3)

Any cancellation of the test by The DVSA (short notice) is not a situation that DTD UK or your tutor has any control of. Thus, any late test cancellation will have no reflection to your driving programme and it will proceed as planned with the test being taken at a later date as supplied by the authority in question.

 

(4)

The Pass-Plus programme you enrol to (if applicable) will be taken as and when this can be conducted and a test pass will obviously be required to complete the course. Thus, while on a residential module, your Pass-Plus programme may immediately carry on from your driving test appointment. However, should a failure of the practical exam occur, the pass-plus module will then have to be taken as a driving rectification programme. Any rectification lessons taken within the Pass-Plus module will not alter the requirements of any post-test continuation programme as within (3) above.

 

(5)

Problems, queries, perplexities and any difficulties that may arise before or during the driving course must be brought to the attention of your personal tutor at DTD UK immediately so as a satisfactory solution is to transpire from the concern. It is therefore not acceptable to conform to “The 10 Days Grievance Syndrome” after the programme has been completed and contemplate bringing the matter(s) to our attention as an after-thought when you have returned home. Thus, please act as soon as possible and your driving course experience will most probably be better off for it. So, tell us and we will know. Keep quiet and we assume complete satisfaction.

 

(6)

There is a formal complaints procedure set out within our business practice and therefore we urge you to forward any such grievance directly to the company if you have previously discussed matters with your tutor but attained no satisfaction. Please make the address of any such complaint to: The Proprietors at: The Driving Consultants. DTD UK. 41, DE5 8PS. The company will also accept a preliminary address by e-mail at: DrivingConsults@aol.com  but a written land-post letter must follow. Formal complaints must take these directions and they will not be accepted by landline or mobile telephone systems. You will receive a reply to your formal grievance within 14 days of it being received. For the reason of an enquiry or formal grievance, there remains no reception facility at the company head office address for a personal one to one meeting.

 

 (7)

Driving Test Doctors UK and any of the company’s employed/engaged tutors will have the right to refuse on-going tuition or active course modules to unsuitable candidates (alcoholism, drug taking, driving rules abuse, none or late payments of a driving programme and offensive behaviours, etc). A clear and precise reason will be available to the student for this refusal and any monies paid for the programme will not be returned. Driving Test Doctors UK truly endeavour to work closely with our clientele during their schooling so as to attain the very highest possible rewards for them with regards to the learning process of becoming a safe driver as well as passing the DVSA test. Talk to us and we will talk back with sensible reason should you have any problems or queries.

 

(8)

Single one-hour slots may be cancelled or changed giving 48 hours notice. Full driving programmes of 2 hours and above will require 6 weeks warning so as to replace the vacant but previously booked spaces (all students will have received notice of this condition in previous literature and it may vary depending on the course type so do check your file). If these notes are not observed then the full lesson/programme costs are to be paid in full by the learner driver student or their representative. None-attendance/late arrival to a lesson will be charged for at the full day rate. Your tutor will typically wait for 15 minutes after which the programme/lesson of the day will then be terminated.

 

(9)

As you will note from (7) above there is a zero tolerance on drinking and driving. Any student found to be suspected of having consumed any amount of alcohol before a lesson period will immediately have their full programme terminated.  If you are on any medication whatsoever then you must inform your tutor before the lesson begins.

 

(10)

Driving Test Doctors UK (effectively being your tutor) may submit a signed declaration form to the testing examiner to show you have reached the necessary safe and required standards so as to be presented for this exam. Thus, you will have completed the full training syllabus. However, should you fall short of the mandatory training syllabus and consequently have not reached the satisfactory levels expected of you, then the test cannot go ahead and it will be forfeited on the grounds of safety. If you are taking an intensive driving programme and the test appointment falls within the same week of the course, then you may loose your booking fee if you have not completed the full training syllabus. DVSA require 3 clear days notice in which to re-appoint another learner-driver into your place

 

(11)

You must make yourself available for tuition at any time of the week for the programme you have booked. If your tutor cannot attend because of mechanical breakdown, short term illness, traffic congestion or driving test appointment (late arrangement), then your scheduled lesson periods will be reorganized. Any part of the driving course not taken by the student at the end of the programme because your tutor cannot re-schedule your lessons will then be settled in full by DTD UK. Any monies outstanding can be paid back in full or the programme re-arranged.

 

(12)

The duration of the programme you have enrolled to will consist of driving and tuition time that is defined as and includes: (a) The driving test period. (b) Verbal rectification/instruction and log creating for the purpose of progression on the course. (c) At least one short break period for refreshment and verbal discussion on a module that is longer than 3 hours in length. The duration of a programme quoted in hours will be termed as “up to”. The duration of a programme quoted in hours will be termed as “up to”. Thus, enrolment of the standard day course is 4.0 hours and it will be the maximum. An extended/intensive residential programme is up to 4.0 hours. These times could be reduced if the training module becomes exhaustive.

 

(13)

Any engagement, at any time, of a second party driving school or tutor for the purpose of tuition, advise or counsel while you the learner-driver are engaged to DTD UK will immediately make any guarantee or assurance void unless there has been a prior request for this and it was approved in writing. Additionally, any second party tutor employment may actively terminate your engagement with DTD UK.

 

(14)

If you have enrolled to a driving course so as to include both the theory exam booking and the practical driving test slot, then there are certain conditions you must be fully aware of which are beyond our driving schools control. (1) We/you cannot book or secure a practical driving test slot with DVSA until you have completed the theory exam successfully (these are strict conditions that are set out by the driving authorities). Therefore, it’s imperative you are successful on the theory exam sitting so as to move forward in securing a practical driving test slot. (2) DVSA has a standard booking calendar for all its exams which run into a many weeks duration. However, we can very often attain an early test slot within a matter of days providing we are versatile with the testing location options. Thus, because of this booking calendar you must also fully understand that a driving test slot cannot be fully guaranteed for the last day of your driving course if one is not actually available. And if after our extensive efforts so as to secure you a test slot we are not actually successful, then the exam will have to be taken at a later date.

 

(15)

Your booking with Driving Test Doctors UK and your chosen establishment for accommodation. It’s a matter of fact that unforeseen problems can sometime arise with a proposed engagement: Illness, accident, being administered to hospital, family bereavement and many other similar situations are possible. Thus, we urge you to consider taking out an insurance policy so as to cover the costs of your driving course should such an occurrence arise. You have paid quite a sizable sum of money for a lengthy driving course and hopefully you will enjoy the experience without problem. In all, your chosen activity is very similar to securing a holiday of which many people are involved for their livelihood and a cancellation clause will be administered. Thus, so as to protect your investment we highly recommend you think over an insurance policy. 

 

(16) 

There will be no monetary refund if you or a second party terminates the driving course early for whatever reason. The course details file you received upon application to the programme will give you a precise date for us to receive any course termination and this must be adhered to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Synopsis of the training syllabus.

 

Part one: We will assess your learning skills and current driving status.

 

Part two: You will participate in the recommended DVSA training syllabus so as to achieve a safe and proper standard within your driving career. Log creating will be an important part of your training and we aim to accomplish a top score mark in all subjects so as you can drive independently and without help from your tutor.

 

Part three: Should you have a test appointment at the end of the programme then you may be required to participate in a test assessment module to evaluate your progress and ability so as to drive without any help. This assessment will take place near the end of the course (usually the day before the test period or at your tutor’s discretion). If all is going well you will start the next modules as laid out below. Should your progress be somewhat under par (for whatever reason) and you are not consistently scoring 5 in all subjects, then you will not be presented for the practical exam on the grounds of safety and you will have this explained to you at that moment in time. The remainder of the course will then be concentrated on your weaknesses for an overall improvement of your driving.

 

Part four: Test preparation (if applicable and you have been successful in part three).

 

Part five: The practical exam (if applicable and you have been successful in parts three and four).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please make sure you read this information and fully understand the details. If you have any undue concerns or problems then you must talk to your tutor immediately.

 

The driving programme you have enrolled to may have a driving test appointment booked for attending at the end of the course. However, you must fully understand, that if you do not reach a safe and proper standard of driving while on the driving programme we will not be able to present you for the exam. It is to hope you progress on the course and enjoy the experience of learning to drive. But, should you not make any reasonable and satisfactory improvement in your driving (or indeed regress or have enrolled on the wrong programme length), then the test may have to be taken at a later date on a further pre-arranged driving course.

 

During your driving programme a log sheet may chart your progress. If you are not consistent with a score of 5 toward to the end of your training, then the driving test will not be attended on the grounds of safety.

 

Any driving test not taken will have the hour’s that are remaining on your programme transferred to tuition with a finish time as previously arranged. Your test fee will have to be forfeited. DVSA require three clear days to cancel a test so as to save the fee from being lost. This cannot be done satisfactory on a short driving course with a pre-arranged exam being secured beforehand. If you have any difficulties with this, it is very important you discuss the situation with your tutor immediately.

 

Driving tests cannot be attended by any student who score a consistently lower than 5 mark to - “See If They Can Pass”. This is a totally unsafe procedure and is not endorsed by either the DVSA or indeed DTD UK.

Driving test and theory exam appointments.

Please note we cannot be responsible for any DVSA test changes, cancellations or non-availability. This is something out of our control. Fortunately, tests periods are not altered around very frequently and are mainly done so through examiner illness. When this does happen, we endeavour to do our best to help you with a new testing period. But you need to be absolutely clear that the situation of test changing would not be down to our own lack of professionalism when the DVSA calendar is actually their own responsibility. If you have enrolled to a programme with a theory exam booking and require a driving test appointment as well, then the practical exam cannot be secured until you have been successful within the theory part. Thus, you need to be clear that you have no driving test appointment pre-booked as this is not actually allowed within DVSA policy. However, we will endeavour to book you a practical exam once the theory exam pass number is known and availability will be entirely within the DVSA booking calendar. Thus, Driving Test Doctors UK cannot fully guarantee you a practical test slot at the end of your course to coordinate with your booking.
