They are part of any business and unfortunately some people will need to cancel a lesson for whatever reason. This can happen quite regularly and most of the time at the last minute. It is then impossible to fill a lesson in short notice and the time slot cannot be offered to anyother client. He/she may badly need to do a lesson, refresher lesson, pre-test or hire my car for his/her driving test. It also sometimes means that I waste valuable time travelling to an agreed location, i.e, your house or driving test centre, and a client may not turn up. So for this reason you must now pay in advance.
PAYPALIf you prefer you can pay with PayPal and you don't need a PayPal account to pay for a service.

PAYMENT IN ADVANCE USING WORLD NET APP
The bigger driving schools will ask you to pay using a VISA DEBIT or CREDIT CARD. You must now pay for driving lessons or pre-tests in advance.
You have 3 options to choose from:
a) VISA DEBIT & CREDIT CARD via WORLD NET.
World net is a merchant service linked to Elavon. I can take advance payments with a Visa Debit or credit card once a lesson is booked. It is a COMPLETELY 100% SECURE service. You are GUARANTEED to be charged for the lessons or block booking that you ask for. I do not retain your card details so you can TRUST that your card will not be over-charged. The advantage is you don't need to worry about going to an ATM or carrying cash to pay for your lessons. There is no extra charge for paying in advance using this method.
For more information please visit: www.worldnettps.com
b) ELECRIC FUNDS TRANSFER:
If you prefer not to pay using Worldnet and prefer not to reveal your card details, another option is to pay by transferring the payment to my bank account using EFT. You will need internet banking to use this service and if you bank with AIB you will need a CARD READER.
Transfer the money to:
Safety 1st Driving School Account Number: 30267059, Sort Code: 93-20-78 IBAN: IE68AIBK93207830267059, BIC:AIBKIE2D
If you insist on paying cash only to pay for advance bookings or lesson/s pretest/s then of course you can pay with cash. In order to confirm the lesson and deter a last minute cancellation, you must give me your home address details. If you continue to pay in cash, each subsequent lesson after the first lesson is completed must be paid in cash. If a lesson is cancelled within 24 hours, you will be issued with an invoice to your home address.
€5 extra to cover the cost for your logbook. A logbook is required to log your compulsory 12 lessons on the portal system so you can apply for your driving test. You can't apply for your driving test without a logbook. All ADI instructors must order the logbooks from the RSA and they are not free of charge so the cost must be covered by each EDT pupil.
They are charged at the same price so be careful that other instructors may charge extra for a pre-test lesson. They can be done in 1 hour session if we start and finish at the chosen test centre, i.e Finglas or Raheny. 2 hours will be required in order to get the best possible benefit to you. If we don't meet and finish at the chosen test centre. We will lose travelling time and we wont be able to finish a proper pre-test from start to finish and to give you feedback on how you drove. Extra travelling time required to get to the test centre and back to your chosen place to finish, your home, work or college etc.
- You must give a strict 24-hours notice before you cancel or re-arrange a lesson or a pre-test.
- All subsequent lessons & pre-tests at a test centre, i.e Raheny or Finglas, must be paid in advance in full in case of a late cancellation.
If less than 24 hours notice is given for any reason you will lose the full fee for the duration of the lesson booked. i.e 1-2 hours
