More advice and guidance

On the www.direct.gov.uk website
Sickness, Lateness or Other Circumstances
Further to the DVSA’s change of policy in June 2011 being ill, late, or delayed by traffic will no longer qualify a student for a free retest (the exception is bereavement). We acknowledge that the DVSA policy is extremely onerous but we are not in a position to influence it. Where we take candidates to test we will give adequate time to reach the test center based on our experience of normally attending the test center. We will do everything possible to get you to the test on time but if there is an unforeseeable accident/delay then
unfortunately the cost of a re-test will fall on the student.

Any client behaving in an abusive or disruptive manner will have their training immediately terminated. They will be asked to leave the premises immediately and any incident may be reported to the police. Should an incident of this nature occur during a road ride, training will be terminated at that point and the client will have to make their own way home. No refund will be given for any remaining training time.
