Cancel Driver's Education Classroom

Ringer’s will deliver the driver’s education course outside of high school hours also being mindful of sports and other after-school activities. 

If you have registered for a driver’s education course and are no longer able to attend those dates, you may cancel and transfer to a later session.

If you give one week or more advance notice,  a $50 transfer fee applies. If you give less than one week advance notice, a $100 transfer fee applies. We have structured the payment plan to allow a $95 deposit, because we do not offer refunds.

All unused payments will be credited to your account.

Absences - Classroom Session

The attendance policy for the classroom portion of the driver’s education program is set by the registry. The coursework is delivered over 30 hours and all 30 hours must be attended in order to earn credit for the program.
If you miss a day or part of a day, you must make up the time in the next session. For example, miss day 2 of June’s session – make up day 2 in July’s session.
If you miss a day, you will still be able to start your behind-the-wheel driving lessons (if the other scheduling requirements have been met). However, you will not earn a certificate of driver’s education completion until the classroom absence has been made up.

Cancel Behind-the-Wheel Driving Lesson

Ringer’s Auto School offers behind-the-wheel driving lessons 7 days/week, 9am-5pm with some extended hours beginning at 8am and ending at 9pm. Extended hours vary. A minimum of 24 hours notice is required when cancelling a behind-the-wheel driving lesson. If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice (not including weekends and holidays), a $20 fee applies. If you cancel with less than one hour notice (not including weekends and holidays), a $50 fee applies.  

Cancel Road Test

The sign up fee for a Ringer’s road test sponsorship is $20. If you cancel a road test after signing up, the fee is $20. Therefore, if you wish to sign up for another road test, you must prepay the $20 sign up fee again. *NOTE: The registry website says as long as you cancel a test within 72 business hours, there will be no fee. This is true, if you scheduled your own test directly on the registry website. If you hired Ringer’s to sponsor, the $20 fee applies, because the registry charges the driving school $20 for each name on their list.

Cancel Due to Illness/Sick

If you have symptoms, you must cancel your lesson. There is no fee for cancelling due to illness. There is a 14-day rescheduling ban to wait out the incubation period.
If you do not have symptoms, but have tested positive for COVID or have been contact traced and told you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID, you must cancel your lesson. There is no fee for COVID-related cancellations. There is a 14-day rescheduling ban to wait out the incubation period.

Cancel Due to Inclement Weather

Ringer’s will cancel all driving lessons when the governor announces a weather-related state of emergency . Otherwise, it’s at the instructor’s discretion as to cancel if they determine the road conditions have become too hazardous. Ringer’s will give as much notice to students when cancelling lessons. If Ringer’s confirms that the lesson will proceed as scheduled, and the student feels uncomfortable driving in the weather, the student may cancel with no fee. Please give as much notice as possible when cancelling due to weather.
