2.  Purchase of Services

  • 2.1
      The placing of a Service on our Website is an invitation to accept offers for such Service and is not an offer to sell at the listed price nor is it binding on us.  We are under no obligation to accept your order (whether or not the order has been acknowledged and payment made).
  • 2.2
      You shall ensure that the terms of your order are complete and accurate.
  • 2.3
      All orders placed on our website must be placed from within the United Kingdom. We cannot accept orders from any person residing (whether temporarily or permanently) within any other EU Member State.
  • 2.4
      After placing an order, including Manual Input Orders, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy Services.
  • 2.5
      All orders, including Manual Input Orders, are subject to acceptance by us, we will notify you by email confirming whether we have accepted your order (the “Acceptance Confirmation”). The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Acceptance Confirmation for your order.
  • 2.6
      The Contract will relate only to those Services whose order we have confirmed in the Acceptance Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Services which may have been part of your order until the acceptance of such Services has been confirmed in a separate Acceptance Confirmation.
  • 2.7
      Any order, including Manual Input Orders, (whether or not accepted) is subject to availability of the Service. If the Service becomes unavailable we will notify you as soon as possible following the Acceptance Confirmation. Either us or you may then cancel the part(s) of the order relating to the unavailable Service (including those Services which can be reasonably linked to the unavailable Service) or we will, where possible, give you the choice of purchasing an alternative from us (an “Alternative”). A full refund will be issued to you for all cancelled parts of your order after we have received from you or sent notification of cancellation of the order. If you choose to purchase an Alternative in accordance with this condition 2.7 these Terms will apply. If an Alternative is chosen and payment has already been taken for the order we will refund to you any overpayment or, in the case of an underpayment, you will pay us any additional sums due in relation to the Alternative.
  • 2.8
      In the event that a Service is listed or quoted at an incorrect price due to an error, we will notify you within 14 days of the Acceptance Confirmation of the correct price by e-mail, telephone or fax. Either us or you may then cancel the part(s) of the order relating to the incorrectly priced Service or you may purchase the incorrectly priced Service(s) at the correct price. If you confirm you want to purchase the Service at the corrected price we will then arrange provision of the Service to you. If payment has been taken for the Service and you cancel your order we will issue a refund. If only some of the Services you ordered are mispriced it will not affect the order in relation to any Services which were priced correctly.
3.  Responsibility for the test booking

      You must book a test on the DVSA website before we can find an earlier test date.
  • 3.2
      You remain responsible for the driving test booking at all times before, during and after use of any of the Services. It is your responsibility to ensure that the test fee is not forfeited as a result of DVSA policies. If you book a test date that you subsequently discover is not suitable you must use the DVSA website to change the booking to a later date - we cannot do this for you. We will not compensate you for a forfeited test fee unless your booking was changed without consent due to a (exceptionally unlikely) malfunction of our system.
  • 3.3
      By signing up to any of the Services you consent to us managing the test booking. By replying to a text or email message notification you consent to us changing the test booking.

Refunds will not be given.
  • 4.2
      The Service will commence as soon as we receive comfirmation of your successful payment.
5.  Fraud

  • 5.1

      We will not disclose our detection methods unless required to do so by law.
