Driver Education Agreement
CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION: DMV requires students to attend the 5-hour Pre-License Class before qualifying for a road test. Students must have a NY permit to sign up and attend the class. Students cannot arrive late or leave early per DMV guidelines. After class/lesson, students must be picked-up on time since instructors may have another appointment afterwards. Classes are charged separately from driving lessons unless already included in the selected package.
The cost of the Pre-License Class (5-hour class) is $60
DRIVING LESSONS: DURATION Driving lessons are 45-min long. Students may book two lessons (90-min) back-to-back when available. NO-SHOW FEE If the student cannot make it to a driving lesson (regardless of the reason), arrives 10+min late, does not have a valid permit/license, a no-show fee is accessed ($40/45-min lesson) to cover instructor’s time. FEE WAIVER The fee is waived if the cancellation is made 24hrs+ prior to the lesson. To cancel or reschedule a lesson, students must use the reschedule/cancel button on the confirmation email for the lesson or speak with someone in the office. A voice/text message or email does not constitute as notice of cancellation. STARTING THE LESSON If you have a driving hour and the office is closed, please wait with a parent for the instructor to return at your scheduled time. Instructors are booked on back-to-back basis and will return for your appointment. If you leave, you will be charged a no-show fee. Driving lessons start at our office unless otherwise agreed with the office in writing. INSTRUCTOR DELAYS Although we strive to be on-time for every appointment, unforeseeable circumstances may delay the start of a lesson (e.g. traffic). When an instructor is late, the time will be added to the end of the lesson or a future lesson. PICK-UP /DROP-OFF at different locations can be scheduled for double lessons when the schedule allows. Lessons may be shorter due to pick-up/drop-off distance and traffic conditions. For a 60min lesson, a separate pick-up/drop-off fee applies. OBSERVATION Another instructor, staff member or student may be in the car observing.
The cost per 45-min lesson is $60.00
ROAD TEST AT THE DMV: Students are responsibility to verify their test date/time, eligibility and own documents. The required documents are the learner's permit, the certificate from the driving school for completing the 5-hour pre-license class, and minors must have a parent/guardian or a waiver form. Make sure you know where you are meeting our instructor and arrive at least 30min early.
The cost of the road test appointment and car rental is $130 or more based on the road test location
PROGRAM COMPLETION & CERTIFICATE: Upon completion of the 5-hour pre-license class students will receive a certificate. If we are missing any information or payment, your certificate will not be ready. Without this certificate, you will not be able to take the road test. There is a fee to reissue the certificate.
GENERAL POLICIES: DMV has access to the information you provide to the driving school. We are not responsible for student’s information and documents. Students must verify their information/documents before testing. Students may receive ads through mail, e-mail and/or text message and picture taken by the school can be used for advertisement purposes. Students may request to stop receiving ads or have a picture removed by emailing: email@example.com. Students are required to disclose in writing any handicaps or limitations affecting their driving ability.
PAYMENT POLICIES: Payment is due before starting the program. If the student, having given prior notice of at least 24 hours, withdraws from or discontinues a pre-paid course of instruction or series of lessons before completion thereof, or from any other service for which pre-payment has been made, or if the school is unable or unwilling to complete such prepaid course of instruction, or series of lessons, or to provide such other prepaid service, all payments made by the student to the school shall be refunded except: (i) the school’s full price per lesson/class tuition charge for each lesson/class already received and (ii) the enrollment fee of $10 or 10% of the contract amount (whichever is greater) for the remainder. The student will receive an email or letter with the refund calculation up to 30 days from the date of the request.
Example: package purchased: $650, full price of class program: (-)$350, full price of driving lessons taken: (-)$140, 10% of balance towards registration fee : (-) $16, Refund balance: (=)$144
