Terms and conditions
1. Legal requirements for on road training
1.1. Every candidate who wishes to undergo driver training on public roads must be the holder of a current driving licence covering the appropriate vehicle group and is not disqualified from holding such a licence. The candidate is therefore required to notify Swansea Council should the position change at any time during the course.
1.2. The trainer will examine driving licences before each on-road training course commences. Candidates not producing a valid driving licence will not be trained on that day and unless a replacement participant is found within a reasonable time on that day the cancellation policy will apply.
1.3. The training vehicle will be supplied by the trainer, who shall be responsible for ensuring that the vehicle is correctly insured against all third party risks as required by the Road Traffic Acts. The trainer will also be responsible for ensuring that the vehicle provided is roadworthy and complies with all relevant Road Traffic Legislation.
2.1. The trainer will be in possession of Public Liability insurance with an indemnity limit of £5 million.
2.2. The trainer will also have Professional Indemnity insurance with an indemnity limit of £3 million. A copy of either certificate can be examined on request from Swansea Council.
3.1. The candidate must pay the sum of £20 toward the full cost of the course prior to attending. The remaining cost of approximately £100 will be subsidised by Swansea Council which will be subject to the candidate satisfying the relevant conditions as set out in these terms.
4. Cancellation policy
4.1. A candidate failing to turn up on the theory session is given the opportunity to attend a later course on paying a rebooking fee of £10. A candidate who attends the theory session but fails to attend on the day of the on-road session will be given the opportunity to re-attend the on-road session on payment of a £10 rebooking fee. If this cancellation is less than 24 hours before the start date of the prearranged on-road course then a £30 cancellation and £10 rebooking fee applies.
4.2. Failing to turn up to either session is allowed once only, thereafter the candidate will forfeit the £20 fee or pay the £100 subsidised fee to attend the next available course. Should one candidate fail to turn up for the on-road session, training will continue for a period of 6 hours on a one to one basis.
5. Duration and termination of agreement
5.1. The candidate will agree for Swansea Council to enquire with the DVLA as to the categories, currency and details of violations recorded on the candidate's driving licence.

9. Provision of training
9.1. The provision of the training will be as that laid down in the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency Pass Plus scheme guidance notes, the ADI Code of Conduct, and the requirements of Swansea Council as it relates to the provision of the instruction.
