Your Right to Cancel.

You may cancel an order within the statutory period however once an order has begun the service will have deemed to have been provided and you will lose the right to cancel your order.

Please note: that we begin processing orders immediately and if you have not received confirmation of your order being processed this does not mean we have not taken steps to begin processing the order and completing our service. We do this so you can receive your booking information, card or course in the shortest amount of time.

In the case that we have made an error in processing your booking we will try to rectify this in every way. If we are unsuccessful we will refund out service fee.

We only accept correspondence via our contact form or email address: [email protected] We aim to respond to all enquiries within a maximum of 1-2 working day.

Cancellation / Refund Policy

If a customer cancels their test within 4 full working days of the test date no refund can be given. If the test has been booked and the cancellation is over 4 days until their test date a refund for each test booked can be given minus £20 administration charge. Refund requests must be made within 14 days of the original order or no refund can be given.

Alternatively they can opt to reschedule and we will do this free of charge as long as a request is submitted 4 full working days from the test date.

Cancellations can only be made in writing via email from the email address you made payment with.

Refunds will be made to the crediting credit/debit cards within 10 working days of a valid request. If a refund has taken longer than this please contact us.

CSCS Cards

CSCS cards will not be issued automatically. You must email us after completing your CSCS test and any other relevant qualifications. Only then will we apply for your CSCS card. You must do this within 30 days or you will no longer be able to proceed with your application and no refund will be given.

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure they have or will have the relevant qualifications to be able to process their CSCS card application within 30 days. If the customer or candidate cannot provide a copy of the relevant information or qualifications they will not be entitled to a refund.

Your CSCS card will generally take 5-10 working days to be sent out to you after you submit all the correct information to us. We can make no guarantee of the timeframe a CSCS card will take to reach you. We do not issue CSCS cards directly and the amount of time for you to receive your card may vary. It may also be delayed due to COVID. 

All CSCS Card application refunds are minus £20 administration fee per card.

Clients who cancel their card application after we have submitted the application are not entitled to any refund.

For all CSCS card applications no refund can be given if your application has been submitted. If no applicable has been submitted we can issue a refund minus £20 administration charge.

When a customer fails to produce the relevant documents and requests a refund later than 30 days after their application no refund will be given. However if they failed their CITB test within that timeframe, with proof of this, and had to redo it we can extend this by a maximum of another 15 days.

CSCS Test and Cards

CSCS test and cards combinations  (only when ordered in the same transaction) can be refunded minus £20 administration fee within 30 days of the original application. However if part of the service is complete, you will not get a refund on that part of the service. The package discount amount will be deducted from your refund if you decide to cancel one part of a test and card order.
