The small print
Buckle Up cannot guarantee a driving test pass but will promise to work as hard as possible with you to help you get your license.
We cannot accept responsibility for the DVSA canceling a test due to strikes, weather or illness, and will not refund for driving tuition already provided. In these circumstances the new test date will be rearranged at a date convenient to both parties and some additional tuition provided prior to that date.
A deposit will be taken upon booking which will be refunded if the course is canceled with minimum 10 days notice of the test date.
Your test will take place only in Llandrindod Wells or Brecon as will your tuition. Your accommodation will be arranged in Llandrindod Wells, if you choose to stay elsewhere this must be within a reasonable distance of Llandrindod wells or you will be expected to travel to meet your instructor in Llandrindod wells.
The 12 hour course is for those who have previously taken a test or on foreign license and have plenty of driving experience and wish to brush up on skills and, gain confidence and experience the test roads.
The 20 hour course is for those who have some driving experience but need more time to develop skills and learn manouvres.
Buckle Up trusts your judgment on whether you require the 12 or 20 hour course. You will not benefit yourself by choosing less time than you require.
You will be instructed by an experienced local instructor with fantastic test pass rate and intricate knowledge of the area.
We reserve the right to terminate the course without refund if we feel that you have deceived us in your driving experience and ability. You cannot learn to drive and pass the driving test in 12 hours.
