In Feb 2009 I was self employed in the construction trade and struggling for work due to the reccession. Red Driving School ads were everywhere you looked promising £30k incomes, hours to suit, etc.

 

So, massive change of direction for me, and I thought the £3,700 they wanted for tuition was excessive, but I signed on the dotted anyway.

Then I was told before the wheels could be set in motion (so to speak) I'd have to apply for a CRB check that'd probably take a 'few weeks'. It didn't, it took almost six months, during which Red had sent my my tutiton kit - A box of books (Highway code, etc.) and a DVD.

 

Thing is, by this time work had improved in the construction industry so I rang to explain to Red my circumstances had changed and I'd like a refund. I was pointed to their small print which states a refund can be made if the tuition is cancelled within 7 days.

 

So, I decided to go ahead with the course and had 3 driving lessons before falling at the first hurdle by failing the theory test. I paid another £100 for a second test, but failed this too (by 1 point!)

 

I've decided this really isn't the career for me, but so far I've paid £3,800 for 3 driving lessons (shared with another pupil!) two failed tests, and a box of books.

 

Is there any course of action I can take to get even a partial refund?

 

Thanks in advance.

Unless they gave you a guarantee of passing...? What do their terms say about taking re-tests and your requirement to study dilligently? If they've misled you (and you can prove this) then you're in with a chance, but not otherwise. Paying a university for a course of any subject does not guarantee a degree at the end of it nor a job.
