Last updated: July 15, 2020:
We have received clarification from CA state that Driving schools are allowed and are part of the "Transportation and Logistics" branch of the Essential Workforce (section 6, bullet 2). We are now open in all counties. However, with that being said not all ofour Driving Instructors will be performing driving lessons during this time. We are looking to hire qualified driving instructors that do not fall into the more at-risk population for Covid-19.
Safety is our top priority - both on and off the road. We are resuming behind-the-wheel lessons with significant additional safety measures in place to protect our students, instructors and those in the communities we serve.
Some of the key changes we are putting in place are:
- Both the Instructor and anyone riding along in the vehicle will be wearing face masks from the time they are within 6 ft of each other.
- There will be thorough disinfection of all touched surfaces before each behind the wheel lesson.
- Sign and/or take photos of the permit and or license outside of the vehicle and then put items folded up into pocket/purse.
- Each passenger will be asked to fill out a health assessment 24 hrs previous to the behind the wheel driving lesson.
- Upon arrival, instructors will use touch-free thermometers to take the temp of students.

Online Defensive Driving/ Fleet Training
Bill's Defensive Driving School has extensive experience in providing safe driving lessons and is committed to improving your driving skills and abilities. The driving classes include senior and teen driving programs with online driver's education. Bill is committed and attained his experience by logging thousands of miles driving large commercial trucks and class A vehicles.
What Makes Us Different From Other Driving Schools?
We offer quality, comprehensive driving lessons in the East Bay area, Alameda County, Marin County, San Francisco, and the surrounding areas. Here at Bill's Driving School we ensure pleasant and effective driving lessons for our drivers ed students.
Driving Schools in the San Francisco Bay Area can be a fun and exciting time for the new driver who is ready for some independence, but it can also be a scary time. Whether you are a new driver as an adult or teen, wanting to refresh your driving skills, relocating and needing help getting familiar with driving in the bay area, or a senior being retested, we cater the lessons to all ages or skill sets.
At Bill's Defensive Driving School, our online traffic school is completed online at your convenience. Our online driving course is very interactive, has the feel of a video game, and takes the student on a virtual road trip across the country. Many students complete the online driver's education course in a few days. At Bills Defensive Driving School, our online traffic school course focuses on the laws and rules of the road to increase the student drivers competence and awareness while driving. There is no time limit on completing the driving course.
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.
