We regret that it is necessary to charge a late cancellation/no-show fee of $35.00 if the lesson is cancelled by the student without adequate notice (see below*).
The $35.00 charge will also be levied if a student does not attend a booked appointment or is unprepared to take their lesson for any reason. This fee covers rescheduling and instructor time.
We will gladly reschedule any appointment without penalty if given adequate notice (see below*) or with a doctor’s notice in case of sudden, serious illness or injury.
*Cancellation or change of a regular lesson requires 24 hours notice except for Monday lessons, which require 48 hours notice as the scheduling office is closed Sundays.
If another student can be inserted into the time slot we reserved for you, then there will be no charge at all.
Remember, there is NEVER a charge for lessons cancelled in a timely manner!
ROAD TEST APPOINTMENTS:
ICBC requires 72 hours notice for cancellation and are subject to a $25.00 late cancellation charge, which must be paid before ICBC will allow the student to take their road test. This means that canceling a road test with less than 72 hours notice will cost you $25.00 plus road test fee of $35.00 for a total of $60.00 with late cancellation fees.
Note: ICBC does not supervise, recommend, approve or endorse any driver training school and the statements herein do not imply otherwise.
