“The thing that was most important for me when choosing a driving school was that the driving instructors would have patience and get me to pass my test with confidence.

Learning to drive was easier than I thought it would be. My driving instructor Carolyn Coulter was very calm, even when something did not go as well which really helped me.

I will recommend to others as the prices are good and I passed my test with confidence!”

Lily Cable, Minehead

“The reason for choosing Kelvin White Driving School was because I wanted a school with a high pass rate!

I also wanted a driving instructor that was easy to learn from and that’s exactly what I got with my driving instructor Carolyn Coulter. I found learning to drive to be really interesting, exciting and much funnier than I thought it would be.

Carolyn had amazing teaching methods. It was easy to learn from her and she suited my teaching style.

It was a joy to learn from Carolyn and with Kelvin White Driving School. Don’t change anything!!”

“I was very impressed with the high pass rate at over 80% I saw Kelvin White Driving School boasted.

Coming into driving, I expected it to be harder but my Driving Instructor Carolyn Coulter made learning to drive so much easier to understand!

My whole experience was fantastic and in my opinion there is nothing that could have been changed to improve the experience.”

Phil Davenport, Minehead.

https://kelvinwhite.theorytestpro.co.uk/”The main reason for choosing Kelvin White Driving School was because I wanted a driving instructor who’d be calm and patient. It was important that the school would have a high pass rate! I had also received good reviews from others about the school.

My driving instructor Carolyn Coulter was patient and explained everything in great detail. Carolyn made me feel at ease. She went through things in thorough detail and if there was anything I did not understand she kept explaining until I did.

I will be recommending the school to others as I had a very patient instructor which made me feel confident, especially on my test day.

I had a really good experience and wouldn’t have changed anything about it!”

Michaela Carter, Minehead

“I was really looking for a driving instructor who could handle my nerves, that was calm, friendly and that had come well recommended.

Learning to drive really helped build my confidence in all areas, not just driving.

My driving instructor Carolyn Coulter was always calm, explained everything very well and was patient.

I would 100% recommend the school and Carolyn to others as she was an absolute star!!

There is nothing I would have changed about the amazing service I received!!”

Driving Lessons Minehead

Kelvin White Driving School have been offering driving lessons Minehead since 2010 and have built a reputation of being the premier driving school in the local Somerset area.

We currently have three fully qualified local driving instructors operating in the Minehead area who have all been CRB checked for your safety. We have a choice of both male and female driving instructors. The driving tuition we offer is client centred, that means we don’t simply tell you what you are going to do but discuss with you a plan of action that you are comfortable with. A good example of this would be: We might suggest that it’s time to tackle the subject of roundabouts but you may not feel ready and prefer to tackle an alternative subject first, so that’s what we would do.

One of our biggest challenges when attracting new students that are learning to drive is that many believe that all driving instructors are the same and I can assure you this is definitely not the case. Why do driving lesson prices in Minehead vary so much when you can pay as low as £9.99 right up to £30.00 plus?

There are different grades and standards of driving instructors, some instructors take no further development training from the day they qualify where others are continually taking courses and training to keep at the forefront of modern teaching and coaching.

Does this matter to you? YES, because it will reflect on the value you receive from your lessons. The popular and very true saying is: “Beware the hidden cost of cheap”. A well trained instructor offering driving lessons in Minehead will enable you to learn much faster and not only get you to your practical driving test much sooner but save you a fortune on the way.

Driving Schools that charge a premium lesson rate are very confident in the quality of customer service and tuition they provide, where an individual instructors working on his/her own may charge a very low lesson rate because they lack recent training and confidence in the service they offer. The question to ask, is why would any driving instructor undersell themselves and offer the cheapest driving lessons in Minehead?

I mentioned above that Kelvin White Driving School have been able to build a very reputable reputation for driving lessons Minehead by providing customer centred lessons with a strong mission statement of customer success. We rely enormously on recommendations to keep our team of Minehead instructors busy and are extremely grateful to our Minehead customers for the customer reviews they provide. Talk is cheap and we now live in a customer review society where it is so easy to gain an independent view of a Driving School before deciding who to trust with your tuition.

Should you wish to check out our individual driving instructors and read what their customers have to say about them, then please visit the “Meet the Team in Minehead” page.

I would like to wish you every success in your quest to obtain your full driving licence whether you choose Kelvin White Driving School as your training provider or one of our competitors.

Warm Regards.
