DRIVE Terms and Conditions



These are the core conditions of the DDRS course – you will be required to sign a copy indicating that you understand and accept these conditions.


  1. You must be the rightful person to attend the course. Photographic ID will be required.
  1. All course fees should be paid in full before the start of the course and, where appropriate, evidence of receipt of benefits, etc will be required in advance of the course in order to qualify for a concessionary rate (concessions only available on weekday courses). Please note if you have attended a course and failed to make the full payment you have not met the requirements of the DSA for completing the course.  A Notice of Non-Completion Certificate will therefore be issued to the Court
  1. You must arrive on time for each session of the course. You will be excluded if you arrive more than 15 minutes late for the first session or 5 minutes late for any subsequent session.
  1. You must arrive drug and alcohol-free. During the course, including break times, you must not consume alcohol or drugs.  Any participant doing so will be excluded from the session – this will be classed as non-attendance.

  1. You must comply fully with any reasonable instructions or requests from the trainer.
  1. Mobile phones and pagers must be switched off.
