£180 for 8 hours in a month
I have just introduced a new system for booking and paying for lessons.
The idea is that the customers will pay a deposit upfront for their driving lessons.
The deposit is non-refundable, and valid for one calender month from the date of payment. The lessons can be taken at any time that is available in my work diary; it can moved earlier or later through the month, but only within that calender month.
If you use up the deposit before the month is finished, then you are able to pay another deposit, which will be valid for a month from that date.
There is no penalty for late cancellations.
There is discount available for booking block lessons.
Payments can be made by cash or cheque, by PayPal, or direct payment into a bank account.
If you would like to, you can start using this system immediately, rather than waiting until 15th October, which is the official start date for the change.
I have decided that the block booking payment will be enough to cover 8 hours of driving, because the majority of customers normally have one 2-hour session each week, totalling 8 hours per month. The discount will drop the hourly rate from £24 per hour, to £22.50 per hour.
If you want to continue paying each week, then you will need to pay a week in advance, and there will no discount available for this system of paying.
