Lesson Cancellation Policy

Cancellation Policy Archer’s Blue Car Driving School Ltd. requires notice of cancellation or re-scheduling of in-vehicle training appointments to be provided by no later than 48 Hours prior to scheduled lesson  or a cancellation fee will apply (unless for reasons of illness with a copy of Dr.’s note).

Please provide Student Name, and Date and Time of appointment being cancelled. Please note that while Archer’s Blue Car Driving School Ltd. does attempt to provide courtesy appointment reminders (if student has selected), that keeping track of the in-vehicle lesson schedule is the ultimate responsibility of the student and/or guardian, so that cancellation or change penalties/fees will still apply even if student did not receive courtesy reminder from Archer’s Blue Car Driving School Ltd. If a student has misplaced the email that confirms their in-car lesson times, they can request an update at any time by contacting the office.

Medical cancellation: If a student cancels a lesson with less than 48 hours’ notice for medical reasons, there will be no cancellation fees for the first cancelled lessons. If a student is cancelling due to COVID symptoms, access to the calendar will be blocked and the student’s lessons will be cancelled for 10 days. Access to the calendar will be given once the students provide a negative COVID test result and symptoms have receded. For any subsequent medical cancellation with less than 48-hour notice, a doctor’s note must be provided.

Insurance Reduction Certificate Policy PLEASE NOTE: An insurance reduction certificate is NOT guaranteed as the student must meet the prescribed skill standard. See details below. An Insurance Reduction Certificate may only be issued to a Student who has successfully completed the prescribed curriculum including demonstrating in-vehicle skills at, or above, the prescribed standard as set out in the Alberta Transportation Licensed Driver Training School Policies and Procedures Section 4.00.03 G(1). Student may require additional in-vehicle training hours to meet the standard,. Additional Practice Required The Student, and Parent/Guardian where applicable, understand(s) and accept(s) that additional driving practice outside of the 10 hours of lessons will be required in most situations for a Student to be successful in achieving a minimum 7.5 score and achieving an independent driving level.

Road Test Car Rental: It is highly recommended that any Student planning to take their Class 5 Basic Road Test have at least 40 to 60 Total Hours of behind-the-wheel driving experience, which would require 30 to 50 practice hours outside of the driver training program.  Car rentals are subject to availability, the sooner we know when your test is, the better your chances of getting a car.. Archer’s also reserve the right to deny a car rental if the student does not meet minimum driving safety standards. If a car rental is pre-paid and we cannot provide a car, the cost will be refunded in full.
