I am sad to say this was not a good experience for my teen. My child came home in tears after her lesson saying Bill cursed her under his breathe, grabbed her arm, and raised his voice. He constantly controlled the gas and brake pedals while criticizing her for not starting and stopping fast enough or slow enough.  I do not think this is a good way to teach or help someone develop confidence. I can not recommend Bill as a teacher at Bill's Defensive Driving. Maybe other teachers are better.

I went to Bill's driving school and I had a good experience. I didn't drive on the freeway my first day. My first lesson was to learn driving on the street learning the basics by learning how to stop at the stop sign and driving within the speed limit. Bill does this to get the driver be comfortable behind the wheel. The second lesson is starting to drive on the freeway which was the easiest for me, because your just driving straight. The third lesson consists of muscle memory this is when I went to china camp. After the third lesson i took my driving test and i past the first go round. I had a really good experience and it was so much fun! the instructor made me so comfortable. I would most definitely recommend Bills driving school to my friends and family.

I would like to highly recommend Bill's Defensive Driving School to anyone who is serious about learning to be a safe driver. Bill taught me how to drive safely and confidently. Later I was able to use what Bill taught me to help teach my younger sister when she was learning to drive. He got us ready to take and pass our driving test, but more importantly, be safe drivers.
