Online programs are accessible as soon as your payment for the program is approved. If you purchase the program on the weekend, the activation may take place on the first business day i.e. the coming Monday. Once the payment is approved, the program is instantly accessible to you and can be viewed.
The viewing of online theory programs can be combined with in-car driving to maximize your understanding and practice of driving a vehicle. You will still need to initially complete a portion of the theory program before starting the in-car lessons.
Refund policy: Once you’ve started a program, the payment is non-refundable. We can help you in any way we can, and we’ll try our best to address any issue case-by-case.
Online Tracking: All online lessons are tracked and must be completed in their entirety to count. The time that you enter the lesson, view the lesson and complete the lesson will be recorded and observed. In the case that a student may miss or skip a section, they will be asked to re-do that section. If there are multiple sections skipped or overlooked, the entire course will have to be re-done. The goal is to create continuity in your driver education, so the student will have a thorough understanding of the lectured concepts. Technical Support: In case of any issues accessing the online program, the student is expected to contact our technical support team via our ticket centre. We will try to help you progress through the course as smoothly as possible. Unless engaged in other activities, we will ensure that you are assisted between the hours of 9 am – 7 pm, Monday to Friday, as may be needed. Marking of assignments: In order for your submitted assignment, please provide ample time. A Brave driving instructor needs to be in the office to look over your responses, and to provide feedback. Class participants are expected to be free from cellphone use, and to keep from conversing while the program is in session. Furthermore, students are expected to ask questions in case a topic, question or section may be unclear. You may ask questions in the ticket centre under the specified category. The course text-book: You may request to purchase the online course textbook, and you will be provided one.
In Car Sessions:
Prior to starting the in-car sessions, the students are required to complete the theory portion of the online program.
Having a road-test booked (even in advance) is not an excuse to get into the car prior to completing the required theory portion of the program.
The in-car lessons are at most 2 hours in length, according to the present regulations. 2 hours is a suitable length of time before a novice driver may become fatigued, inattentive and prone to make unnecessary mistakes, and to become unproductive in their learnings; this length of time cannot be surpassed or increased for safety reasons. Some of the sessions may be 2 hours and some may be 1.5 hours.
In case of a request for additional lessons, they can be offered and they will be 1.5 hours in length.
Instructors will make their best effort to meet students at home, work, etc. within the HRM territories. In the event that the students reside on the outskirts of the city or too far what would be considered reasonable, a pick up location will be assigned. In this event, the student will be required to arrange a ride to and back from the appropriate location.
Advance notice required for changes:
In car appointments are saved for the students who have booked them, and therefore it’s expected that the student will honor the appointment. In case of any changes, it’s expected that the student will cancel or reschedule the scheduled appointment with 48 hours time or more remaining, in order to assure that another student may have a chance to book the said appointment.
In the event that a scheduled appointment is canceled “last minute” ( within a 24 hours time), without a dire or urgent reason, there will be a cancellation fee of 50$ charged to the student’s account balance. If the student is late to the in-car appointment, at the pre-designated location, for more than 15 minutes, the lesson will be considered null, and there will be a late cancel charge applied as per above.
Last minute road-test:
Due to the nature of how road-test appointments are booked, a student’s ordinary appointment may be rescheduled at the last minute to give way to the completion of another student’s road-test. An appointment for a road-test is occasionally booked at the last minute.
Frigid weather exception:
In the event of frigid weather, our instructors may cancel a session that you have booked with late notice (if called for), if the issue of safety is at risk. Examples of frigid weather are included, but are not limited to: extreme rain, snow on the roads, storm, news warnings, and more. The instructor assigned will use his experience and discretion to decide based on the situation and/or the individual student skills, whether he will be able to manage the present conditions or if it’s best to avoid the environment altogether. In this event, there would be no cancelation charges due to the student.
The usage of drugs or alcohol is strictly prohibited while operating a vehicle. If suspected of intoxication, the lesson will be stopped immediately at the expense of the student’s time, and the instructor will drop student off at the pickup location.
The students are expected to be respectful, well mannered and at a disposition suitable to learning and receiving information and instruction. Under no circumstances, are the instructors to be insulted, abused, or unreasonably challenged. In this event, it is understood that the instructor has the authority to cancel the session, in which case he may be unable to drive the student back to the appointed location of the start.
Student hygiene and state:
Students are expected to be sober, clean and free of any fragrance that may affect the atmosphere of the car cabin. As the instructor will be sharing a confined space with the student, it is the responsibility of both the instructor and the student to respect that some could be more sensitive to either foul smells or the smell of cologne, fragrance, etc.
