In addition, you can rest assured knowing you can receive a full refund if you cancel the appointment (*with 24-hours or more notice).

A transaction processing fee from the third party service provider is applied to ALL pre-paid canceled appointments using a credit or debit card.



If you need to cancel or reschedule any lessons booked, we do require 24 hours or more notice in order to avoid a $100.00 charge for the missed time. As long as we have 24 hours or more, we can certainly reschedule without charge. Thank you for respecting what we love doing most – serving you!


Cancellation Due to Rain. We only cancel a driving lesson when, at the start of the appointment, there is a severe storm which continues through the scheduled time of the training that, in our professional opinion, becomes a safety issue for our student and instructor.
