Introduction

This Website is operated by ADI Motoring Ltd (“we” or “us” or “ADI Motoring”), Company Registration Number: 547846, whose registered office is at 2 Elmwood Park, Swords, Co. Dublin, Ireland. ADI Motoring is a business where the Driving lessons and associated Services are provided in collaboration with independent, government licensed driving instructors (our “Instructors”) and facilitated by us.

We are here to help

ADI Motoring is an independent online platform that facilitates the connection between learner drivers and qualified professional driving instructors. We do not personally provide driving lessons nor do we operate as joint-venturer or employer of driving instructors. Our Service is to provide a simple, safe, secure and convenient platform to assist you to become a competent and confident driver. ADI Motoring takes on the responsibility of marketing driving lessons, the Service, on behalf of our Instructors, accepting payment on their behalf and facilitating for the ongoing relationship with you.

Booking lessons

When you make a booking through our Website, you choose your own instructor from those operating near your location and select a driving lesson package. After sign up and payment you will receive notifications to confirm the receipt of payment and of your first booking and all future bookings you make through the platform. You will also receive lesson reminders and notifications to lesson changes from the platform on behalf of your driving instructor.

In the event that you call us to book in we will assign you a Driving Instructor near your location, provide you with a provisional booking date and time and send you a payment request via email. For security reasons we do not take credit or debit card information over the phone. Once you make payment you will receive notifications to confirm the receipt of payment, your platform login credentials and confirmation of your first booking. You can then use your login to manage all future bookings you make. You will also receive lesson reminders and notifications to lesson changes from the platform on behalf of your driving instructor.

In the event that your Driving Instructor invites you to use the platform you will receive your login credentials via email. You can then use your login details to manage all your future bookings with your Driving Instructor. You will also receive lesson reminders and notifications to lesson changes from the platform on behalf of your driving instructor.

In using our Website you acknowledge that you are aware of and accept that if you fail to provide notice to your driving instructor 48 hours prior to the scheduled lesson, the amount for the driving lesson will be forfeited entirely. The enforcement of this clause is at the discretion of your chosen Driving Instructor and ADI Motoring itself. Please note also that our Instructors reserve the discretion to reschedule appointed times at no charge or penalty provided that notice is given.

Driving lessons

Our Service is subject to availability. We reserve the right to provide you with an alternative Instructor in the instance that the one assigned to you is no longer available for any reason. ADI Motoring is not liable, whatsoever, for any traffic violations incurred by you during a Driving lesson or otherwise, whilst engaged with any of our direct or indirect Services. In such an event, you are and will remain solely liable to make good any amounts payable as a result of the violation. ADI Motoring endeavors to provide a high quality service and will be your first contact in the event there is a problem with the quality or manner of which the Service is delivered. Hence, all ADI Motoring Instructors are legally bound to meet our standards of professionalism and care, as it is of the utmost importance to us that they comply with our standards and help us to maintain our reputation.

Payment for the Service can be made by credit or debit card through our Website.

Payment is made directly to your Driving Instructor and we recover a fee at the point of purchase. Please note all related ADI Motoring fees recovered at point of purchase for Driving Lessons are non-refundable. We are authorised by our Driving Instructors to accept payment on their behalf and payment of the price of any Driving lessons or related package made to us will discharge your obligations to pay such price to the Instructor.

You may in limited circumstances be charged additional costs above those advertised on our Website for things including but not limited to road tolls etcetera.

Once you are assigned an instructor all funds are transferred to your driving instructor less our fee recovered from the driving instructor at the point of redemption.
