Why MINEHEAD Learner Drivers

Chose Kelvin White Driving School.

Phillipa Bartlett, Taunton

Michaela Carter, Minehead.

“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!”

Alastair Smith, Taunton.

Harriet Sparks, Minehead.

I was looking for a Driving School and instructor who would be confident and experienced who could schedule lessons to fit around my lifestyle. I found learning to drive to be easier than I anticipated and also passed sooner than I expected to. My Driving Instructor Mike Jenks had brilliant teaching methods that were simple to learn and they were methodical which made things like the manoeuvres which most say are tricky, actually quite straight forward. I have already recommended the School and Mike to others as Mike’s sense of humour put me at ease and made learning to drive an enjoyable experience but he remained professional at all times. Mike judged my ability well along the way and set me challenges that I was able to do whilst pushing me out of my comfort zone at times. This was really good! He also never encouraged me to have more lessons than required so I wasn’t spending money unnecessarily.”

“The high 1st time pass rate is what caught my eye . I got in contact through the School’s business Facebook page. Learning to drive was fantastic, a lot more straightforward than I expected it to be, a really positive experience. My Instructor was Dave Miles who had simple but incredibly effective teaching methods. Nothing was made to be difficult and was simply practicing areas I was not as competent in. Dave really gave me good value for money and I felt I got every penny out of each hour. The use of lesson objectives and what we set out to achieve and the reviewing of the lessons at the end worked really well for me and I left every lesson feeling positive and knowing exactly what I had achieved, it was great. I’d be more than happy to put my name to your School and recommend you to friends and already have done. Dave never looked worried or panicked which helped build my confidence.

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)

Yes, we do, however your lessons do have to be pre-paid 48 hours in advance. We do not accept cash on the day of your lessons, but you are most welcome to pay each week as you go using your preferred method of payment.

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.

Where can I find payment options?

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.

More Information

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.
