TIME WITH A TRAINER
*You may have noticed a few asterisks above. We will provide up-to 76 hours of face-to-face training with one of our Specialist Trainers at no extra cost to you – as long as you meet our course terms and conditions.
To maximise your chances of success (and to also validate our course guarantee), we want you to complete your coursework and achieve certain targets within certain time-frames. We know from our many, many years of experience in this industry that taking longer than an ‘academic year’ of 9 months will diminish your chances of success, so :
We want you to pass the Part 1 test within 5 months of starting your course. We will ask for you to satisfactorily complete the online Theory work before you go to the test and within 4 months of starting your course.
We want you to pass the Part 2 test within 7 months of starting your course. We will ask for you to satisfactorily complete the online Driving work before you go to the test and within 6 months of starting your course.
We want you to sit the Part 3 test within 10 months of starting your course. We will ask for you to satisfactorily complete the online Teaching within before you go to the test and within 8 months of starting your course work.
Then, should you go onto a Trainee Licence, there is the legal requirements of the licence itself and the extra training and time limits from the DVSA that you must ensure you adhere to – and we want to help you do this.
If you do not adhere to this, we cannot be certain of your ability for the test nor your readiness for the modules we will cover in the face-face sessions. For this reason, if you do not complete your course work in full and in the above time frames, you will be in breach of your course terms and not entitled to any face-face-training free of charge.
We want to be certain of your success. We want you to pass!
