3 – Payment – ALL COURSES

Full payment must be made upon booking a Course either by credit/debit card (most major cards are accepted), cheque or postal order. If paying by cheque, your place on a Course will not be confirmed until Silverstone has received the cheque and it has received cleared funds.

SCL reserves the right to levy an administration fee for any changes to a booking.

4 – Cancellations

Should You have problems attending a Course, we will require at least 14 days notice, otherwise the full cost of the Course will apply. Should You need to cancel a booked Course, notice will need to be given in writing stating the reason. Refunds cannot be provided; a credit voucher will be issued that is valid for 6 months to the value of your booking less a £50 administration fee and any unrecoverable costs already incurred by Silverstone.

5 – Your Commitment

No Alcohol can be consumed before or during the Course and we reserve the right to refuse participation on a Course to persons we suspect to be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. In such circumstances, Silverstone will not rebook the Course or make any refund. All Courses require the wearing of an approved crash helmet, this is mandatory and there are no exceptions.

6 – Public Liability Indemnity

The very nature of our driving Courses mean that some personal risk may be involved in taking part in the activities we offer and You should be aware of this when booking. We require the driver’s signature on a registration form before participation is allowed. On this form you will certify you are medically fit to undertake and participate in the Course. Please note that some medical conditions preclude certain drivers from taking part. For further details, please speak to a member of our Sales Team. Silverstone has third party and public liability insurance cover for all its operations. Silverstone does not provide personal insurance to drivers.

7 – ‘Own car’ Tuition Courses

When using your own car at Silverstone, you are solely responsible for the condition and worthiness of the vehicle to participate in the Course and you accept full financial responsibility for any damage to your car, however caused.

8 – Drivers without Full UK (or equivalent) Driving Licence

Any driver without a full UK (or equivalent) driving licence must have successfully passed a Motorsport Academy Novice Driver Assessment before taking part in any Course. If more information is required, please call the Sales Team. Silverstone cannot take responsibility for anyone under 18 years of age. It is therefore the responsibility of the parent/guardian to confirm to Silverstone and make all necessary arrangements for the participant. In the event that Silverstone is dissatisfied with arrangements made, Silverstone shall have the option at its sole discretion to cancel the Course.

9 – Age, Height and Weight Restrictions

Our Courses have age, height and weight restrictions imposed; minimum age 14, minimum height 5ft 2”, maximum height 6ft 2” and maximum weight 16 stone. If you have any doubts or questions, please call the Sales Team

In such circumstances, your Course will be re-scheduled. When taking part in a race meeting, Silverstone cannot be held responsible for any cancellations or stoppages by the organising club at that race meeting and refunds/credits cannot be given.

11 – Complaints

Any complaints must be received in writing by Silverstone within 28 days of the Course Date. Silverstone shall not be liable for any complaints received after that period.

We reserve the right to make changes to the advertised prices, but of course, this will not affect you if you have already booked and paid for a Course. All information and prices are correct at the time of going to press. Whilst it is our intention to offer Courses as described, some revisions may be necessary. Our Sales Team will be able to advise you of any amendments.

13 – Accident Damage Indemnity
