Axis refund policy

Our refund policy is based according to our terms and conditions. Deposits are strictly non refundable. Refund will take up to 2 weeks to be released and showing into your account see table below . If a third party is paying on behalf of someone else then we require for card holder to request a written cancellation which can be sent by email. In principle the more work you asked us to do in order to get a placement and reserve your course and the later you leave it to cancel the more charges there will be, we will try to maintain a fair balance between driving instructors being affected by work cancelled at short notice and student reasons for cancelling.

1. Refund process steps

Step 1: Formal student or payee request to have the course cancelled and refunded and reason for it.

Step 2: Once confirmation of your last payment received on our side then a refund calculation letter will be created and sent to you which needs to be signed.

Step 3: Once all of above it has been received we can issue a refund. Approximate time length for you to receive and show on your account will depend on original payment method and amount claiming. Check table below.
