Driving Tests can be booked by you or your Instructor on your behalf. Driving Test bookings always take priority over other lessons. Therefore, your lesson may be postponed to allow for someone else’s Driving Test and vice-versa.

Changes to lesson bookings as a result of this will be notified immediately.

Driving Test appointments MUST be notified to

1 ROCK SOLID DRIVING SCHOOL as soon as they are known, otherwise we cannot guarantee to provide you with the School vehicle on the day of your test.

In the interests of customer and public safety, the Instructor reserves the right to withhold the use of the Driving School car for the Driving Test if, in his professional opinion, the students driving is not up to Driving Test standards or is actually/potentially dangerous, which may result in danger to the general public or damage been caused to the Driving School Tuition Vehicle.
