Why EXETER Learner Drivers

Chose Kelvin White Driving School.

Phillipa Bartlett, Taunton

Summer Varley, Exeter.

“I chose Kelvin White Driving School as I wanted quality teaching. I also wanted a local school who were professional.

My learning experience was better than I had expected. I really liked that you could express what you wanted to work on rather than being told. My driving instructor Mike Harwood had great teaching methods. Mike was very calm and understanding. He was very clear when explaining things and was friendly, yet professional.

I cannot express how great Mike was. I always felt comfortable and safe and he gave great guidance and teaching methods.He made my experience of learning to drive enjoyable and easy.

I was 100% happy and will recommend to others due to my experience and the good office support I received.”

Alastair Smith, Taunton.

Rebekah Tabone, Exeter.

“The main reason for choosing Kelvin White Driving School was because I wanted a high quality level of teaching.

I enjoyed my lessons with my driving instructor Mike Harwood as he also gave me facts about the local area as I am new to Exeter. The driving school met all of my expectations! Mike had very good teaching methods. Mike kindly pointed out what mistakes I was making and also mentioned when I did something well which was encouraging.

I will certainly be recommending the school to others as it’s a good organisation with a good new car and great instructors.”

Debbie Kwong, Taunton

Holly Sagar, Exeter.

“The main reason for choosing Kelvin White Driving School was because of the positive feedback I saw the school had received.

I found that I learnt much quicker than I had expected to.

My driving instructor Mike Harwood had exceedingly effective teaching methods that were perfect or me! Mike was always happy to let me try new things and push myself. I never felt held back in any way, but equally I was never pushed to do things I didn’t want to.

Mike really let me choose what I felt I needed in each lesson which benefited me greatly! I always felt I was in a safe environment and would highly recommend Kelvin White Driving School to anyone looking for a friendly and professional driving instructor with an excellent sense of humour!

You Ask – We Answer

Will i Drive On My 1st lesson?

Yes, you will definitely be driving on your first lesson.

If you are new to driving, your Instructor will drive you to a suitable location to get you started. It’s vital that your first few lessons are conducted in an area that will ensure your success and build your confidence.

Your Instructor will take a few minutes to record your licence details, test your eyesight and explain how to adjust your seat, head restraint and make sure you are comfortable.

He/she will then explain the controls that you will need to operate during your first lesson.

You will then be given a briefing on the move off and stop procedure with a short discussion to ensure you understand what is required. Your Instructor will then give you full talk through and guide you through your practical driving session. You will be able to learn at your own pace and your lesson will progress as and when you feel ready.

All your lessons will be structured using our unique ALS (Accelerated Learning System) to ensure you receive the maximum value for your money. Your early lessons will be in quiet areas, mainly on housing estates so you can build your confidence.

 Full details on our unique Accelerated Learning System can be accessed by watching the main video on this page titled ‘Save Your Time and Money’.

Do You Offer A Block Booking Discount?

Yes, we do.

We suggest that if possible, you purchase a block of ten hours to benefit from the £20 discount. If for any reason you are not delighted with your instructor and your tuition, I will make a refund and any unused lessons purchased will also be refunded.

 Full lesson pricing details can be found by clicking the ‘Lesson Prices’ button just above the four contact methods.

Do you offer 1 hour lessons?

You may be thinking of taking 1-hour lessons and Just to be clear and give you a balanced view, there is nothing wrong with 1-hour lessons, we just feel that they offer less value for your money as they prolong the learning period substantially.

Another of the drawbacks is having to take time from your lesson to drive to a suitable location that is relevant to cover the topic and then having to drive back again.

So, should you prefer to take less than two-hour lessons, we would not be the right driving school for you as we don’t offer them.

You have over 600 positive customer reviews, but about negative reviews?

We aim to be as transparent as possible and despite our best endeavours, when you have been providing driving lessons for over twenty years and taught thousands of students, there will be mistakes made and misunderstandings on both sides.

We raise our hands and if we have failed to deliver the best possible experience, then we are truly sorry.

We have trolled both Facebook and Google and gathered any negative reviews that we could find and have listed them below.

 

Do you offer a money back guarantee?

Yes, we do.

In fact, we offer an industry leading 9 Star Guarantee and I will offer you a refund on EVERY lesson you take unless you are delighted with both the tuition and service you receive.

 You can access full details of the 9 Start Guarantee by clicking the ‘Learn More’ Button at the top of this page.

How much are your lessons?

Please click the Yellow ‘Lesson Prices’ Button just above the four ways you can make contact for full lesson pricing details.

Do you offer intensive or crash courses?

Please click the ‘Are we the right school for you’ Button for a full explanation of the services we offer.

Do you offer lessons in an Automatic vehicle?

Yes, we do in the Bridgwater and Taunton area.

Please click the Yellow ‘Lesson Prices’ Button just above the four ways you can make contact for full lesson pricing details.

 

 

How many lessons a week do you recommend?

We find that taking a 2-hour lesson every week, proves to be the most successful strategy for most students. Two-hour lessons would be far more beneficial to you. You will learn far more for your money and you will also be test ready in half the time. You will have a decent amount of condensed learning in one go with time to digest and be focused for your next lesson.

Sometimes students think that they would be unable to concentrate for a period of two hours, but this is why we would ‘chunk’ your lessons and break up the two hour slot to cover several topics, just as they do in the school curriculum to keep the learning fresh and focused.

Taking a regular weekly lesson has proven success as it provides continuity, the retention of knowledge and it will reduce your learning period. We will aim to offer you a regular lesson slot that you can book in advance and keep from the time you commence your lessons until you pass your test.

 You will also be able to book more than one lesson slot per week should you wish to reduce your learning period and be test ready sooner. (Subject to instructor availability)

Do you offer lessons at weekends or just during the week?

Yes, we do offer lessons on Saturdays but not on Sundays unfortunately.

Saturday lessons are always in high demand and will be subject to availability.

 

 

How many lessons do you think I will need?

It’s almost impossible to know until you begin your tuition.

 The DVSA suggest that the average is around 46 hours, but we find that most of our students are test ready much sooner. It really does depend on the individual, but our recommendation is to book ten hours of lessons and once completed, you will have a much better idea of the number of lesson you will need.

Do you come to me or do I have to come to you?

We will always pick you up at your preferred location. That could be from College, your home, work or anywhere else you choose. We will also drop you off at your preferred location.

Do you offer one-hour lessons?

Just to be clear and give you a balanced view, there is nothing wrong with 1-hour lessons, we just feel that they offer less value for your money as they prolong the learning period substantially. Another of the drawbacks is having to take time from your lesson to drive to a suitable location that is relevant to cover the topic and then having to drive back again. So, should you prefer to take less than two-hour lessons, we would not be the right driving school for you as we don’t offer them.

 

You can research further by watching the video on this website – Are we the right driving school for you?

Do you have female instructors?

Unfortunately, we don’t have any female instructors that cover the Bridgwater area at the moment.

What is your 1st time pass rate?

We are very proud of our 1st time pass rate and our instructors deserve a lot of credit for their hard work. Its impossible to give the exact % as we have tests almost every day and it will continually change.

 Checking out the main video on this page ‘How To Choose Your Instructor’ will help you make the correct decision and avoid the costly mistakes that force over 30% of all local learners to change their instructor before reaching test day.

How long is the waiting list?

It really depends on when you would be available to take your lessons.

If you would like to contact us by using one of the four methods towards the top of this website with the days and times you are available, Andy or Sandra, who are our customer services staff will check and get back to you ASAP.

How come you are more expensive than others?

That is a very good question.

Most people wrongly assume that all driving instructors are the same!

I have produced several videos on this website to help you make the correct decision, avoid the costly mistakes and to avoid being one of the 30% of local learners that feel the need to change their driving instructor before test day.

 Please check out the main video on this page ‘How To Choose Your Driving Instructor’. You will be glad that you did!

Do you teach people with learning difficulties?

Yes, we do but it will depend on the circumstances.

Our instructors do not pretend to be experts, or do they possess special training for certain disabilities. The best advice I can give is to contact our customer services and discuss your requirements, so they can attempt to match a suitable instructor.

  • Manual and Automatic teachers providing affordable packages and bundles for beginners and refresher sessions

  • We are nearby for new drivers and rated no 1 by our customers which is great news

When choosing a driving instructor, many customers make the common but inaccurate assumption that all driving instructors are basically the same. These customers may base their decisions on criteria such as convenience of location and price. However, there is a lot more to it than that. Don’t fall into the trap of trying to make the ‘easiest’ choice – you deserve the very best in driving tuition, so should search for reliable instructors with great feedback from their previous students.

Location doesn’t really matter, as long as the instructor covers your area. You shouldn’t opt for the driving school that is closest in proximity purely based on that factor alone. The reality is that the majority of instructors will provide a ‘pick up’ and ‘drop off’ service, so how nearby they are doesn’t actually make a difference, and you could be limiting your options. It is best to shop around and research a number of local driving lesson providers in detail. Look at websites, reviews, experience and qualifications.

Pupil recommendations are always worth examining in detail. Why exactly do they recommend this instructor? Is there a particular reason that stands out, and does it resonate with you as a prospective customer?

Seasoned driving schools have had time to develop and perfect their teaching techniques, and most of the time experience is an important deciding factor. Kelvin White Driving School have been in operation since 2001, giving them over 17 years of experience. There is a reason that Kelvin White Driving School has a fantastic reputation surrounding it, and in the Exeter area you’d be hard-pressed to find a driving school that is as highly recommended for new drivers.

Kelvin White Driving School offer flexible courses that you can tailor to your individual needs. You can opt for a female instructor if you are more comfortable with this, there are a wide range of affordable automatic and manual training packages, deals for beginners, familiarisation for non-English speakers, and more. You don’t have to be a new driver to benefit from driving lessons – they also offer refresher courses for licence holders that just want to work on their skills.

Indeed, whether it is your own money that will be invested in your driving tuition, or your parents’ money, you don’t want to be throwing it down the drain. You want to ensure that you are investing in a high quality product. Whether you choose Kelvin White Driving School or another option, we wish you the best of luck in obtaining your licence.
