We make payouts to our driving schools every Wednesday's but it can sometimes take up to 7 days for payments to be paid out. We advice not to start offering lessons to learners until you've successfully received payouts.

How do learners make their repayments?

Firstly, learners choose how long they'll like to split their finance for, between 3 - 10 months and their first monthly payments are made 30 days thereafter. These monthly repayments are not to GoCaptain but to the direct lender Bumper Finance.

What is the partnership between Driving Schools & GoCaptain?

The partnership agreement between GoCaptain and Driving Schools is a referral based partnership and nothing more. The purpose of the partnership is for GoCaptain to help provide a different driving lesson payment alternative to your learners.

What happens when a learner needs more lessons outside of the set lessons already paid for by the loan?

There may be occasions where the learners loan amount is not enough to cover their full lessons or they might take their test, fail and be required to retake some extra lessons. We never encourage learners to re-apply for more finance in situations when the first amount wasn't enough for full lessons.
