Bay Area Defensive Driving School
What Makes Us Different From Other Driving Schools?
Not all East Bay driving schools are created equally, and because of this, you want to know what sets one school apart from the next. Here at Bill's Driving School we ensure a pleasant and effective solution for everyone. This includes the teen taking the lessons, as well as their parents.
Driving can be a fun and exciting time for the teen who is ready for some independence, but it can also be a scary time for parents who are not exactly ready for their teen to venture out on the open road. This is why we cater towards everyone's needs. This ensures both the teen and parent are comfortable and ready for the adventure ahead. When you enroll your teen in classes at our facility, we offer a number of benefits that cannot be found at other driving schools.
My son, Peter, just completed his 3rd, two hour lesson with Bill. Our experience has been great! Bill has a calm relaxed demeanor that put my son at ease. We covered a lot of territory during each 2 hour lesson, and not just the basics. Bill had Peter driving through the east bay hills, on winding roads, through busy traffic circles, tunnels, interstates, various intersections and even covered some difficult night time driving. I was really impressed at what was accomplished and how well Peter responded to Bill. I also liked the fact that my husband or I got to be a part of the lesson. It has allowed us to see what Peter was capable of, and enabled us to reinforce the lessons when we drive with Peter. I highly recommend this program and have passed on Bill's information to many of my friends who are getting ready to start their teens.
The word "Defensive" caught my attention when I was looking for a driving instructor for my daughter on the internet. You always want the best driving lessons for your kids. So I called Bill's Driving School to schedule an appointment and asked for their fees. It was pricey compared to other driving schools. But I tell you it's all worth it. It was quite an experience to join my daughter during her driving lessons which I didn't get to do with my other two daughters. At least I know what she is learning, what's being taught and the skills that she's learning. With my other 2 kids, I had to guess what kind of driving skills they learned when I drove with them to earn the required hours. It was so frustrating. I highly recommend Bill to train your kids. He has tons of experience teaching kids that helps them feel comfortable and great teaching techniques too. It's all worth it.
I had a lesson with Bill yesterday, and I am so grateful to him. I am an adult driver, and extremely nervous while driving. He immediately put me to ease and talked me through everything. He was extremely hands on, and did not let me feel alone. At one point, we even got out of the car and stood at a stop sign so I get a better sense of my space in a car. We even went on the freeway, something I always was terrified about, and again, I was placed at ease. He noticed when I was getting nervous and immediately worked through it with me. He also pointed out in a constructive manner how to improve on the skills I had. I am so grateful, and excited now to take more lessons with him! His staff is also really great. They were compassionate and accessible. I can't speak highly enough of Bill and his staff! Thank you!"
Both of my children attended Bills driving school. Bill put them at ease immediately with his calm, delightful nature. Instruction was clear, precise and easily retainable. They each passed their driving test the first time. I highly recommend Bills Driving School for anyone learning to drive, young or old.
I thank Bill for his patience and support in helping me getting my CA driver's license. His professionalism & expertise helped me improve my driving skills and become more of an intelligent driver. I passed the test on my first attempt. Thank you Bill, and I will surely recommend him for any new driver.
Before Bill's Defensive Driving School, my girlfriend was terrified of the freeway. After one class with Bill, she was driving on 680 with such serenity. Thanks, Bill!!!
After having a very discouraging course of lessons from a competing school, we are so pleased to have enrolled our son in Bills Defensive Driving School. Bill is awesome! We are so pleased…
Our son really enjoyed his driving lessons with Bill he is very confident and safe on the road because of your school. Thank you.
