Considerations When Booking A lesson
When booking lessons consider your schedules or your children’s schedule.
Lesson start location can reduce more complex lesson requirements due to travelling time constraints.
Check your work rosters or school rosters before making a booking as cancellation fees will apply for non-attendance.
For further information on rescheduling or cancellations please see our terms and conditions in our FAQ’s.
If you can find 1 hour for a driving lesson why not find 1½ hours (90 min).
For maximum benefits, lessons should be frequent rather than being drawn out over a long period.
Talk to us about what your goal is so we can give you the correct information.
Our packages can also be used as 60 or 90-minute lessons or in combination to the total minutes purchased in the package.
We don’t recommend 2-hour lessons for new students without any experience as they can lose concentration.
Only make a booking if you can attend as we require 1 full days notice to change a lesson time.
Contact us at Penrith Driving School for more information or to answer any of your questions.
Student Pickup Times
Students should be ready to be picked up at the booked time and address given to Penrith Driving School at the time of your booking.
If you are not ready and the Instructor has to wait for you then this will reduce your lesson time.
Please ensure you are ready to be picked up.
You should bring your Learners Licence and you Drivers Log Book.
Correct footwear should be worn no thongs or loose footwear.
Students should also monitor their mobile phones for text messages or phone calls from their instructor around lesson time.
Instructors always try to be on time when possible but can be up to 10 minutes late due to traffic or a previous lesson running over time. Instructors have a limited transition time between lessons.
If your instructor is more than 10 minutes late and you haven’t received a text message to indicate they are running behind then you should contact your instructor immediately.
Should a Penrith Driving School Instructor be excessively late at the booked time of a lesson or for an unforeseen reason have the need to cancel a lesson we will reschedule that lesson and or make up that time by extending the lesson when possible and subject to the reason we may provide a free lesson.
Use your mobile phone planner to set a reminder for your lesson
You should also inform your boss or work place of your lesson so you don’t have to cancel.
All students who undertake driving lessons with Penrith Driving School cannot be under the influence of any alcohol, drugs or substances prior to commencing lessons with us or your lesson will be cancelled if determined by the instructor that you are not in any fit condition to drive a Motor Vehicle and you will be charged the lesson fee or have the lesson deducted from packages.
It is the student’s responsibility to inform an instructor if currently on medication that could affect their driving ability.
Students should avoid late nights and excessive drinking if you have an early morning lesson as you may very well be still under the influence of alcohol and your lesson will be cancelled if the instructor determines you are not fit to drive a motor vehicle and your lesson fee will be payable or deducted from packages.
Penrith Driving School needs to comply with NSW laws as do students.
