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.

Kelvin White Driving School is a well-respected name when it comes to driving schools in the Ilminster area. Most of their students come from extremely positive word-of-mouth recommendations, which keeps their driving instructors very busy. They have been established since 2001, and have maintained their stop as the top choice of driving school in Ilminster for quite some time.

You want previous pupils to be commending their driving instructor in their feedback, and identifying specific reasons they found the lessons so beneficial. For instance, one popular aspect of the tuition given with Kelvin White Driving School is that it is client-centred. Progression through the course is based completely on the individual student, and you’ll never find yourself being pressured to perform a maneuver you aren’t comfortable with.

When you’re searching for a driving school, recommendations can’t be ignored. Kelvin White Driving School’s website has reviews for each individual instructor on the ‘Meet the Team’ page, as well as a short biography, so you can see exactly what makes each of them so great. Quality is so important when it comes to driving lessons. Unfortunately, it seems to be underestimated, with trends pointing towards people choosing the closest, most convenient and cheapest driving schools on the market.

Distance isn’t an issue, as long as the driving schools includes coverage of your area. It doesn’t matter if they are 1 mile away or 3 miles away, because the vast majority will offer pick up and drop offs at your home for no additional charge. It may be counterintuitive (surely proximity is desirable?), but forget about how far away they are for now.

Low prices can be seductive, especially when they are too good to be true, but you should carefully consider the standard of tuition you’ll be receiving. This is where the past students’ reviews are crucial. You might think you are saving a pretty penny with the affordable driving school you have found, but the trade-off could be that you need double the amount of lessons to obtain your driving licence when compared to a pricier but more experienced driving school. You may end up spending just as much, if not more!

Luckily, Kelvin White Driving School manages to offer a range of packages, discounts and deals, without sacrificing quality. There are different reasonably-priced manual and automatic lesson packages, deals for beginners, bookings made in blocks, and for foreign customers there are familiarisation programmes on offer. Even licence holders who want to refresh their skills have something to gain.

Where to go from here? The best way to proceed is to shop around, visit lots of different websites, read lots of different reviews. Kelvin White Driving School prides itself on having the top tutors in the area, and the syllabus is led by the student. There is a reason they are so highly recommended, which keeps each of their qualified, CRB-checked and registered instructors busy.

Don’t be discouraged by the amount of variables involved in choosing a driving school. Do your research thoroughly, and whether you pick Kelvin White Driving School or go with a competitor, we wish you all the success for the future.

 


Just a few examples from over 500 reviews of reasons given by learner students for recommending their instructor:

They rely enormously on recommendations to keep their team of local instructors busy and are extremely grateful to their customers for the reviews they provide.
