“Having an instructor who was patient and understood my anxiety was a major factor in my decision of who I would choose. I also really liked the introductory offer that the School were running. The service I received from Greg and Williams Driving School was a huge improvement on my previous experiences of driving lessons. I have recommended Williams Driving School to my friends because I passed 1st time with only 2 minor faults and I really enjoyed my experience.”

Lisa Markham

“The reason for choosing Williams Driving School was because of their customer reviews, reasonable prices and availability of more intensive hours. It was also important I found a driving instructor that was the right fit for me and could understand and have patience with my nerves.

I have had two previous driving instructors and their methods of teaching were slow. My driving instructor Greg Braund surprised me by making the most of the time we had. Greg’s teaching methods were great, he took into consideration how I was feeling about a particular area of driving and noted that down for the next lesson so I had the opportunity to build my confidence bit by bit.

I found the school as a whole were dedicated to see their pupils succeed!”

“I chose Williams Driving School because of all the good reviews I had read. They also came to my area in Kingswear too which helped.

I found that learning to drive got easier the more lessons I had. My Driving Instructor Lisa Zimmermann had great teaching methods. Lisa was friendly and really helped me to pass my test.

I will be recommending Lisda and the school to others as they have good Driving Instructors and provide a very good learning environment.

In my opinion there was nothing the school could have improved on.”
