Term and Conditions

ADIT Course Conditions

Check our terms and conditions regarding the use of this web site, and our training coursesPlease read these terms and conditions before using our web site, calling to book your place on any of our courses or making any payment

We are determined to ensure that you will find our training and service to be of an excellent standard, but you should always treat the information on this site as general advice only. Always make sure that you seek the advice and help of your chosen training provider, and if in any doubt you should follow your trainers advice in favour of the advice you find here

In the interest of all of our clients, we have to ensure a degree of commitment from trainees to ensure that training days are not lost. We have had recovery courses arranged from all four corners of the UK that were cancelled one or two days before, by trainees who decided not to continue with the ADI qualifying process

Although we completely understand that everyone should be free to decide their own actions, you’ll realise that this left very valuable training days empty that would have been gratefully received by others

ADI Training Conditions

  1. These terms and conditions are general to all ADIT trainers, and each trainer may also have their own specific terms and conditions that you’ll need to agree to before training takes place. Your statutory rights are not affected. By purchasing any training course with an ADIT trainer you are accepting that you have read and agree with these terms and conditions
  2. ‘ADIT’ is a Registered Trade Mark. Any unauthorised use of the name ‘ADIT’ is expressly forbidden. ADIT is not a company, it is a trading name for independent trainer Harry Elkan
  3. When you purchase a training course from an ADIT trainer, you are purchasing training from the individual trainer concerned and not from any company or organisation
  4. When you purchase a training course from an ADIT trainer, you are purchasing time spent with your allocated trainer, and you are not specifically paying for time spent in the vehicle delivering instruction. All time spent in the presence of your allocated trainer is counted as ‘training time’. The term ‘Training’ may refer to practical demonstrations by the trainer, time spent watching other trainees, discussion sessions with your trainer or tuition of any description
  5. All training must be paid for in advance, and payment must clear within 7 days of you booking your course (not simply 7 days before your course commences). Any course which is not fully paid for within this time frame may be cancelled without notice. All courses carry a £125 administration and booking fee, which is non refundable under any circumstances
  6. ADIT have a standard ‘no quibble’ money back guarantee, in that if you inform your trainer that you are not entirely satisfied for any reason within the first 2 hours of commencing your chosen course, your trainer will simply terminate your course and refund your training fees in full, less the standard administration and booking fee
  7. Accommodation, travel and sundry expenses are your responsibility. The ADIT training team will offer details of local accommodation, but we accept no responsibility for their service, which is clearly out of our Control
  8. No member of the ADIT training team can guarantee that you will pass Part 3 at any attempt. We will offer you training of a very high standard, but the tests are a contract between yourself and the DVSA. It is your responsibility to decide if you are ready to take any test, and the ADIT team accept no responsibility whatsoever for the result of your tests
  9. Due to the highly intense nature of the 2 day recovery course, the training ratio will normally be 1 trainer to 2 trainees. If no other trainee is available, we will attempt to supply an additional trainer. If this is not possible, your allocated trainer will provide demonstrations of the skills required
  10. Once your training has taken place, no refunds of any description will be offered if you are unsatisfied with any aspect of the training. It is your responsibility to ensure that you inform your allocated trainer within 2 hours of your course commencing that you are unsatisfied and require a refund for any reason. Please note that your ADIT trainer reserves the right to retain a £125 booking and administration fee, which may be deducted from any refund
