Ordering and stock availability:
You can order goods from us on this website by completing the order form. We will quickly send you an e-mail to confirm that we have received your order. This email confirmation will be produced automatically so that you have confirmation of your order details.
We aim only to display items which are in stock and which can be dispatched to you quickly. Occasionally, we may sell out of some goods or their description may change. For this reason, the order confirmation does not mean that we will definitely be able to meet your order. If we are unable to meet your order we will let you know as soon as possible and will credit your payment card with the full price of the goods or service that we are unable to supply.
Our prices are in pounds sterling on our web site and include VAT (where applicable), postage and packing within the UK, and insurance.
You can pay online using Visa, MasterCard, Switch or Delta.
To make sure that shopping on our website is secure, your credit details will be encrypted to minimise the possibility of someone being able to read your details as they are sent to us over the Internet.
We operate an on-line order limit of £1000 per order. Should you wish to purchase gift vouchers or products in excess of this please call Christine’s School of Motoring who will be able to assist you with your purchase.
For your security we can only make deliveries to the purchasing cardholders address.
We aim to deliver the goods to you within 5 working days of receipt by us of your order and we will make every effort to deliver within this time. We will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery.

Driving Lesson Bookings:
The instructor shall have the right to substitute another instructor for a specific appointment or in the event of a mechanical breakdown or other cause, the instructor reserves the right to rearrange the lesson to a time convenient to both parties. The instructor also reserves the right to replace his/her motor vehicle with an alternative for the purposes of the practical driving test in the event of mechanical breakdown.
The instructor will carry motor insurance covering the pupil whilst driving the tuition vehicle when accompanied by the instructor or by a Driving Standards Agency Examiner.
If the pupil fails to give a minimum of 48hrs notice to cancel any lesson, the pupil shall be liable for the lesson fee in respect of that lesson.If the pupil fails to turn up for a lesson, the pupil will be charged for the full price of the lesson.
If, upon arrival for an appointment, the instructor deems that the pupil is unfit to undertake that lesson through misuse of drink or drugs, then the instructor has the right to cancel that appointment and the pupil will be liable for the payment of the fee.
It is hereby expressly agreed that these terms and conditions are made solely between the instructor and pupil and that no contractual relationship exists between the school and pupil. Subsequently, the pupil acknowledges that the school has no liability to the pupil in respect of any loss, injury or damage arising from the use of the tuition vehicle or from any acts of omissions of the instructor or any instructor substituted.
Payment with respect to the current or next lesson may be made to the instructor; all other payments should made to the instructor’s agent (the school). Where payments are made directly to the instructor, the school does not accept responsibility what so ever for any failure on the part of the instructor to carry out his/her obligations.
Refunds of Lessons:
Any refund given is at the discretion of Christine’s School of Motoring.
Driving lessons that have been purchased more than 6 months previously to the refund request must be taken in driving lessons to the value of the current lesson price, not the price purchased.
If the purchase was a block booking rate, any lessons taken will be charged at the normal rate if a refund is requested. Outstanding monies will then be refunded. Any refund will go back to the source of the payment i.e. the card with which the purchase was originally made.
Intensive Courses need to be paid in full as soon as the course is booked.
Cancellation of Courses:
We are unable to accept any cancellations, or refund any intensive course fees, once the dates and times have been booked, and the course has been paid for.
