Refund/Cancellation Policy:

Local Driving School has developed a refund/ cancellation policy based on understanding and fairness for both the parties. Please review the following policy before signing up for the class. We encourage you to ask questions about our cancellation policy before hand.

We have a NO REFUND POLICY. When your payment is received, we immediately reserve a place/ instructor for that class which incurs some expenses for our company.

  • Since our drivers are only paid for the time they drive, if the student is a NO SHOW or a driving lesson is cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled time, NO REFUND will be given, the lesson will be forfeited and another lesson will need to be scheduled at a regular price (subject to office review). The notice of cancellation must be given by calling our office during the regular office hours.
  • If a request for cancellation is made later than 48 hours of scheduled time of training class, a $25 non- refundable deposit will be withheld.
  • There will be no refunds after the period of one year from the date of enrollment. Your Application will expire with Local Driving School after 1 year. If you do not finish your 6 hours behind the Wheel training within a year.

  • Local driving school reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.
  • If the account has no activity scheduled driving for a period in excess of 6 months then a $50.00 reactivation fee will be charged prior to scheduling drive lessons, training, or classes. Every effort will be taken to insure all instruction will be offered during
