  2. If you wish to cancel a driving lesson, we require 48 hours notice otherwise a cancellation fee of $20.00 will be assessed.
  3. Note: To cancel a road test appointment made by Finesse Driving School, we require 72 hours notice as we must notify ICBC. Failure to give Finesse Driving School sufficient notice may result in the student having to pay a $25.00 Road Test Cancellation Fee to ICBC.
  4. Payment must be made no later than the end of each driving lesson or road test session. There will be no refund for driving lessons or a road test that has already taken place. If the student has pre-paid for driving lessons or a road test session, there will be no refund given in cases of insufficient notice of cancellation (see 2 and 3 above).
  5. Students must provide a valid BC Learners Drivers or Drivers Licence, including Foreign driver’s license before the first lesson. Students must carry their license at all times during training.
  6. There can only be a maximum of 3 people in the Finesse Driving School Vehicle during the student’s lesson time. Example: One Instructor, One Student, One Observer.
  7. Road test can be booked either by the student or by Finesse Driving School. The student must sign a consent and release form before Finesse Driving School may book a road test on their behalf. Students must be in an active training program, taking driving lessons, within 15 days of a road test booked by Finesse Driving School, or Finesse Driving School reserves the right to cancel any road test appointments it has made.
