• All fees charged by Access Nova Scotia for such things as road test receipt document, learners license, drivers handbook, license upgrades, are the responsibility of the clients.

• Students who register for a specific program should be able to attend all classroom days in sequence.

• In vehicle training assignments usually take place 5-7 days after classroom has been completed and all course balances have been paid. Your assigned instructor will make contact directly to start lesson bookings.

• The course does not include the use of an Excel vehicle for a road test. An additional fee is charged for this option. (Conditions Apply)

• Instructors stress practice between each lesson. Students must be able to perform what is taught once they decide to take a road test (without any intervention.)

• To keep the training fair for all, we do not pick up and drop off students at residences or places of business. Typically we will have a predetermined location for both pick up and drop off after the lesson. Excel believes that the full lesson time should be focused on training, and not a portion lost in transportation.
