The instructor will advise you of the appropriate time to make an application for a practical test. This advice will be based on your progress to date. It does not imply that you have reached the necessary driving standards or that you are guaranteed to reach such necessary standards of driving before the test date. Your Instructor will advise – where necessary – the postponement of your practical test if he or she believes that your skills are lacking in one or more areas of the DSA syllabus. This condition is intended to save you unnecessary test expenses, unnecessary failure and the consequent delay in waiting for another practical test.
You are required to notify your instructor as soon as possible of the date and time of your practical driving test. The Instructor cannot guarantee availability of the school car for test appointments that have not been booked with his/her explicit consent. It is therefore essential that you co-ordinate your test booking with your Instructor.
The instructor reserves the right to withhold the use of the school car for your test or a lesson if in his/her opinion you are:
- not at driving test standard
- medically unfit (including eyesight)
- under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- not properly licenced to drive
- falling into arrears over payment
…or if for any other reason the Instructor considers you unsafe to handle a motor vehicle.
