Customer Review Newton Abbot Lauren Woolley

“I chose Williams Driving School because of their good reputation. I also needed to choose a driving school who had times to match my availability in the evenings and on weekends.


I found learning to drive to not be as complicated as I thought it would be. My Driving Instructor Lisa Zimmermann had good teaching methods. Lisa adapted to the way that I learn which is what was so good! The learning log also really helped.


I will be recommending the school to others because the availability is good, pricing is fair and they care more about the pupil than getting more money out of them!”

The Main reason why I Chose Williams Driving School.

“I chose Williams Driving School as I wanted someone who was laid back and that would make me feel comfortable and supported. It was also important I would get along with them.

I found my lessons to be very enjoyable and I felt comfortable. My driving instructor Ian had very good teaching methods. Ian is a credit to the school. Due to me being a very nervous I wanted to go with a company who would make me feel at ease. Ian had everything I was looking for in a driving instructor. He is very much a people person and this made me look forward to each lesson rather than worrying about them.

I will be recommending to others as it is a brilliant school and Ian is amazing!! There is nothing that I would have changed about my experience, it was brilliant!!”

“I chose Williams Driving School because of their positive customer reviews and high pass rate. I also wanted a patient instructor.

I found the intensive driving course to be better than I had anticipated. My driving instructor Dave Williams had really good teaching methods.

I will be recommending the school to others as I had a really good instructor who was easy to get along with and I also liked the cars they use.”

We are Williams Driving School and one of Torbay’s leading driving schools. We have built a strong reputation throughout the community largely thanks to our quality services and highly trained respected staff.

Our training courses are competitively priced & we provide substantial discounts for block bookings of more than 10 lessons. We also have our most popular package, the try us and see deal which enables new students or beginners to try us out with having to commit to any further lessons.

All our instructors abide by our own internal procedures and industry refresher courses. We have driving instructors who can provide experience in a variety of areas. For example, beginner learner driving, advanced learner driving including motorway driving & much more.

We also have male and female driving instructors. One of the reasons why we are so popular is because we obtain a lot of referrals from previous students who have been happy with our service and successfully passed first time. We have a particularly high first-time pass rate.

We managed to maintain such a high standard because we have structured driving courses. Whenever a new student or beginner driver signed up for courses we have a detailed and outlined plan. Each lesson forms part of the driving syllabus and progression through the syllabus prepares the tutor or student for their final test examination.

Our system of providing a structured and detailed course of lessons insures that students can clearly monitor themselves and how they’re progressing. A clear structure also enables the instructor to feedback each lesson to the student regarding what he or she considers are the students strengths and weaknesses.

This insures the student has the ability or potential or opportunity to practice in between lessons. The structure of our courses begins in a very quiet housing estate or industrial estate where there is no other traffic. This gives the student the opportunity to confidently get used to handling the controls of a motor-vehicle.

It also gives the instructor the opportunity to have the student carry out particular manoeuvres in a controlled way without putting the student and himself or anyone else at risk. Once the instructor is happy that the student can handle a motor-vehicle and confidently carry out these manoeuvres when asked to do so efficiently during the lessons you will then move on to a busier environment.

Each lesson will be a further step through the driving syllabus and towards the end goal of preparation for your test examination. As you can clearly at our driving School we provide a professional service detailed from start to finish.
