Terms & Conditions
£170 Christmas Offer
Our £170 offer applies to individual orders only booked through our website. If you are a business/corporate client this offer does not apply (please email your bookings as usual).
If you book our ‘Pick & Mix’ option you must attend all your courses within 12 months from order date.
Periodic CPC lessons need to be paid prior to the lesson commencing. No exceptions will be made. If payment is not made then Atlas reserves the right to cancel your booking and refuse admission.
If you cannot attend a CPC event then we kindly ask for you to let us know 24 hours before the course commences otherwise we may not be able to reschedule your CPC course to another date.
Pick & Mix Package
Modules booked through our Pick & Mix Package are valid for 12 months from purchase.
Cancellation Policy – A full refund will be issued within 30 days from purchase (minus any fees if you have already taken modules). If you wish to cancel your order after 30 days no refund can be issued, however we will honour your modules for 12 months.
Please be aware due to high booking numbers we are unable to 100% guarantee places on your chosen dates but will do our best to facilitate your needs. Any cancellations or requests to reschedule will be transferred to another booking date or a refund will be issued. If you do not let us know you cannot attend the session it will be classed as a ‘no-show’ and will be non refundable.
All invoices need to be authorised or paid prior to the first date of attendance unless other payment terms are negotiated.
Periodic CPC – Refunds can take up to 5-10 working days once processed.
At Atlas we like to pride ourselves on our understanding of personal circumstances and in turn offer a generous refund policy.
Refunds requests will be honoured if requested prior to 24 hours of the module/s commencing. Partial refunds will be given if part module/s have been used after booking E.g. If 5 modules have been purchased at a discounted rate then the partial refund will be equal to the total amount paid divided by modules completed. A £5 admin fee may be deducted from the total amount to cover the costs of our online payment system as this is a cost to ourselves. If no refund can be given will be happy to reschedule your CPC course for another date in the future. You may also gift your course to someone else.
A breakdown of costs and terms-

A personal Revision Account to revise for your Theory, Hazard and Mod 2 CPC tests
All three tests – Theory/Multiple Choice, Hazard Perception & CPC Mod 2 booked for you
Time spend calling driving schools and gathering information to find a school best suited for you with the most suitable waiting times
£3000 Amazon Voucher (£2500 Inc VAT)
This pays for your practice lessons, your Mod 4 CPC, Mod 3a Reversing Test and Mod 3B Practical Test.
Please bear in mind we are taking into consideration that your lessons can be paid for using the Amazon Voucher, however in some instances the driving school requires more than £3000. We will do our best to find one that does not cost more. So far we have had a 100% success rate in finding driving schools with the cost of the voucher if there are no available slots with us. If the costs are above £3000 we will advise of any personal costs to you before we proceed.
Each driving school is different in regard to what they offer. I will have to negotiate with them how many hours are included in the training provided and the cost implied. I will come back to you with my findings and you can decide which is best for you once you are ready to book your practical lessons and tests.
To give you an idea the average lessons are usually 16-20 Hours which is broken down into 4 or 5 days (4 hours a day).
The lessons and final road test are usually taken within a week – 2 weeks maximum. Your reversing test and Mod 4 will typically be done within that time frame too.
We will typically send an invoice/request of payment for your Amazon Voucher once you have passed your Theory and Hazard Perception Tests. We only request the money from Amazon when we need to use it to pay for your lessons. The typical payment waiting time from Amazon is around 7 working days.
Once you pay your £150 start-up cost this is our call to begin your HGV Provisional Application. We will move swiftly and progress things as fast as you wish.
Cancellation of Service
If you wish to cancel at any point before your lessons are booked then we will look at the money spent prior to the cancellation and the time working prior to cancellation and calculate a refund fee.
We reserve the right to withhold any amount of funds from Amazon if services have been provided prior to your practical lessons. However we will do our best to offer a fair refund on services provided.
Failed Theory Test
If you fail any of your theory tests we will offer a complimentary retest free of charge. This will cover one retest only and whichever being the most expensive will be covered by us. If you have not attempted any/sufficient amount of revision prior to the theory, hazard or CPC Test then we reserve the right to refuse payment for your failed test. If you do not revise there is a little chance you will pass and we suggest you to rearrange the booked date with us at least 4 working days prior to avoid full cancellation fees.
Failed Practical Test
We do not cover any cost of a failed practical test of any kind with your HGV lessons or Mod 4. The voucher from Amazon simply pays for your lessons and tests with the driving school you are booked in with. We will be happy to assist you in booking your retest however the fee’s are to be paid by yourself.
Driving School Complaints
For any complaints with the driving school you will need to contact them directly. We will be more than happy to assist if you need any support.
Cancellation/Changing Appointment Dates
We need to be notified of any Theory tests and Medical appointment re-bookings 4 working days prior to the date in question. If this is not adhered to the full cost of the booking fee will apply. We will not charge an admin fee to rebook.
Your cancellation and date change period for your Practical lessons are dependent on the HGV Driving School you have booked with. Please make sure you are aware of the driving schools cancellation procedure if not provided.
We will make sure the whole process from start to booking your lessons is tailored to your convenience. We will be on hand every step of the way to provide support and guidance where needed.
