I would like to give a big thanks to guy parfitt, for all your help and getting me past yesterday, at the age of 46 I did not think I would ever pass but you got me there and I have still not got the smile of my face, so it does not matter how old you are with the help of this driving school you can do it as im the proof of pudding right here, if anyone is thinking of using these people I would have no hesitation in recommending them with so much patience and knowing how to calm any nerves down they sure know how do it, and now its such a great feeling now I have passed, and to be very independent, and now on board to take my share in our delivery service for our business. Once again a great big thanks to the Williams driving school, and most of all Guy.



Automatic Lessons Customer Review Paignton Mollie Bragagnolo 

“I chose Williams Driving School because of their good reviews, high pass rate and friendly instructors. I was also after automatic tuition which they offer.

I found learning to drive to be much better than I thought it would be. Especially having my driving instructor Guy teach me who was very patient and understanding. Guy was great at explaining all parts of driving in great detail and answered all my questions.

I will absolutely be recommending the school to others as they were very good at making appointments available and have friendly instructors!”

Automatic Driving Lessons.

Williams Driving School have been offering driving Automatic Driving lessons for many years and have built a reputation of being one off the premier driving school in the local area.

Our local automatic driving instructor has been CRB checked for your safety. The driving tuition we offer is client centred, that means we don’t simply tell you what you are going to do but discuss with you a plan of action that you are comfortable with. A good example of this would be: We might suggest that it’s time to tackle the subject of roundabouts but you may not feel ready and prefer to tackle an alternative subject first, so that’s what we would do.

One of our biggest challenges when attracting new students that are learning to drive is that many believe that all driving instructors are the same and I can assure you this is definitely not the case. Why do driving lesson prices vary so much when you can pay as low as £9.99 right up to £30.00 plus?

There are different grades and standards of driving instructors, some instructors take no further development training from the day they qualify where others are continually taking courses and training to keep at the forefront of modern teaching and coaching.

Does this matter to you? YES, because it will reflect on the value you receive from your Driving lessons. The popular and very true saying is: “Beware the hidden cost of cheap”. A well trained instructor offering Automatic driving lessons will enable you to learn much faster and not only get you to your practical driving test much sooner but save you a fortune on the way.

Driving Schools that charge a premium lesson rate are very confident in the quality of customer service and tuition they provide, where an individual instructors working on his/her own may charge a very low lesson rate because they lack recent training and confidence in the service they offer. The question to ask, is why would any driving instructor undersell themselves and offer the cheapest driving lessons in town ?

I mentioned above that Williams Driving School have been able to build a very reputable reputation for Automatic driving lessons by providing customer centred lessons with a strong mission statement of customer success. We rely enormously on recommendations to keep our Automatic instructor busy and are extremely grateful to our customers for the reviews they provide. Talk is cheap and we now live in a customer review society where it is so easy to gain an independent view of a Driving School before deciding who to trust with your tuition.

I would like to wish you every success in your quest to obtain your driving licence whether you choose Williams Driving School as your training provider or one of our competitors.

Warm Regards.
