2 stars
2 stars because Bill was not a very good driving instructor for me. But I'm a little on the fence about Bill's Defensive Driving School. Bill was awful, but Steve was great. Always. Ask. For. Steve.

Steve is patient, kind, and very calm when teaching students. After 4 or 5 lessons with Steve, I now have my license! He was great. But I repeat, ASK FOR STEVE!

My experience with Bill was very different than my experience with Steve. Bill was stressful, rude, and absolutely degrading. Kept making snide comments about if I "knew how gravity works." He never let go of the steering wheel the whole time and kept changing the speed of the car with the pedals on his side so I had no idea what I was doing because whatever I did, he did something different and it made it terribly confusing. I'd never been behind the wheel of a car before and driving with Bill reduced me to tears.

Both of my kids used Bill's Defensive Driving program and I'm very glad they did. My kids me things they learned from the instructors and both passed their tests on the first try. The day my son took the test we realized we did not have the certificate and Debra and Roland were great. They arranged to meet us at the dmv office minutes before my sons test and they literally saved us. Great people and great service.

The office person(s) are great. (They answer the phone and have good follow up.)
Paul was nice and very helpful. My son learned a lot and was given helpful tips on the upcoming test with the DMV!
