My brother and I have both went though Bill. He is an amazing coach!! He takes you through everything. Shows how to properly turn, properly do everything. I would not be a good driver nor defensive if it wants for Bill. Thank you Bill!

I should have read the reviews of this school more closely because I had the same problem with Bill that some other people have had. For the entire two hour lesson, he had his hand on the wheel, and his feet on the brake/gas, effectively driving for me the whole time. For example, he would tell me to brake, but already be pushing his brake. This gave me no sense of how my actions were manipulating the car, and therefore no way for me to learn how to actually drive. In addition, he would constantly grab my hands and move them on the wheel which was not only incredibly distracting but super inappropriate. Also he was 15 mins late picking me up.

A friend of ours sent their daughter to Bill's Defensive Driving school and recommended them to us, and we are so glad that we chose them.

My son had his first driving lesson with David Lam and he was so great!  David is patient, has a calming voice, and explains driving to students and parents.  He asks the driver questions and reinforces safety and driving laws throughout the lesson.

If driving for the first time with your teenager causes anxiety, this is the place for you, they are excellent!
