Service Delivery & Inclusions

  1. All individual sessions are 45 mins regardless of the package, except for the free Keys2Drive lesson. We will book at least 2 driving sessions each time, however, we may book more than 2 driving sessions depending on the learner's skill, planned lesson plan & the learner's location. 

  2. All driving sessions are one-to-one sessions except for the Keys2Drive lesson where a supervisor is required to accompany the learner for the full lesson.

  4. The school is responsible for getting regular checks done on the vehicle to ensure it is appropriate for driving test use. If for any unforeseen reason the car is not accepted for use during the driving test - the school will immediately arrange for another vehicle. However, there is no guarantee that the vehicle will be the same as the one learner has practiced on. If the school fails to provide a car then the learner will be eligible for a refund of the "use of car for test" service fees.

Excess Fee Waiver & Infringements

Excess Fee Waiver

The excess fee may range from $2000 - $4000 regardless of who is at fault and the excess is payable directly to the insurance company. The learner can opt-in to our excess fee waiver program at an extra cost. Through this program, our company will pay all excess fee to the insurance company on behalf of the learner and the learner does not have to pay anything. The cost of the excess fee waiver program is as follows:

    • $50 per package​

    • $50 per month

    • $50 for Car for Driving Test (including exclusive third-party cover) 

    • $100 per quarter (3 months)

    • $300 per year

  2. Monarch Driving School has all necessary insurances in place and the learner is protected at all times. The excess fee waiver is completely optional and only applicable if the learner does not want to pay anything in case of an accident. 

  3. The learner must make a decision to opt-in to the excess fee waiver in their first lesson, in the 2nd lesson of their package or as specified by the instructor. 

  4. I understand that I am liable for any driving offences made during the session and/or test and I will take full responsibility including the demerit points and penalty charges.
