Please read below for my winter weather policy when it comes to driving lessons during bad weather.
It is a given that many of you will want to have some driving experience on the snow, however as an instructor I have to consider many factors when deciding upon whether to provide snow lessons - the ultimate factor is pupil and public safety and the safety of my vehicle. I will consider the following conditions :-
This means that I may choose to offer a pupil a winter lesson should you have a lesson already booked when snow falls depending upon the above factors. But it also means that I may cancel your lesson, or in fact all lessons during bad weather. Therefore when snow falls, or if snow is forecast please keep an eye on your mobile phones as I will send a general text message if lessons have to be cancelled.
Remember that during bad weather - in accordance with my terms and conditions - lessons can be cancelled right up until the time the lesson is due to begin if inappropriate to go ahead. There would be no charges for this but no good will discounts either. Also remember that LDT is not a taxi service and you should NOT rely upon your lesson as a means of transport to get home or be dropped off at another location as the lesson may be cancelled at short notice. Lee's Driver Training will not be liable to pupils if lessons have to be cancelled at short notice due to bad weather.
If I offer you a snow driving lesson you can still decide to decline it if you are feeling nervous or would simply prefer not to go out on the snow - your decision will be respected.
Note - The decision to offer snow lessons is down to me as the instructor and mine alone and not subject to the opinion of pupils, their parents or anyone else. I am aware that other driving schools may choose to offer snow lessons when I have decided against it, or I may offer them when other schools have chosen not to - other driving schools and instructors will make their own decisions and my decisions will not be subject to or bound by what other drivings schools are doing.
