The Main Reason I chose Kelvin White Driving School

“Having the School recommended to me was a major factor in my decision of who I would choose. I also really liked the introductory offer that the school were running.

Coming into driving I had no preconception of what it was going to be like but my driving instructor Des Robertson had good teaching methods that helped make things easy.

I really enjoyed my experience.”

Customer Reviews Taunton Jess Carey

“The main reason for choosing Kelvin White Driving School was because of their reputation and I also wanted a company that were local to me.

I found learning to drive to be more complicated than I expected but less scary.

My driving instructor Des Robertson was very clear and calm. Des made me feel at ease behind the wheel.

I will be recommending to others as the instructors are friendly, reliable and I feel I am a safe driver because of the teaching methods.

There is nothing that could have been improved, Des was brilliant!!”

“The main reason for choosing Kelvin White Driving School and my driving instructor Des Robertson in particular is because we know him and because of his calm nature. The prices offered were also very competitive and I really liked that I could get picked up from Richard Huish.

Learning to drive was what I expected it to be. Des had excellent teaching methods, which were effective and he was always calm. It was all very well run!”

Oli Sagar

“The main reason for choosing Kelvin White Driving School was because of the recommendations I received from other people and the competitive pricing. The other main factor was to have availability and a regular lesson slot which the school could offer.

My driving instructor Des Robertson had fabulous teaching methods!!

Des was very kind and helpful throughout my learning experience.”

Ponaduwa Lachontha Lukshan

“I was looking for a Driving School where I could build confidence having previously failed my test with other instructors 4 times!!

My Driving Instructor was Des Robertson and he was the first of my instructors to give me mock tests. This helped me see the marking criteria and gave me some structure. This ultimately helped me achieve my pass.

I was in a much better place this time around and with Des’ coaching I felt prepared for the test. I was very nervous and doubtful pre test but we had practiced many things leading up.

I was very pleased with Des’ instruction and help.”

Driving School Somerton | Top Rated Customer Reviews

  • Male and Female instructors offering the best rated, trusted and recommended tuition in Somerset

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

  • Many students search for an instructor on a near me basis but we pick up and drop off in the local area so we don’t have to be the nearest

  • Which tutor do you choose, when some instructors are cheap and lack reviews?

  • Find the top tutor and good companies in the location that offer low student deals on motor car classes and provide advice for nervous learners

  • It’s often a big mistake to choose schools who are the cheapest and buy on price alone and may cost more to learn in the long run

  • Private instruction is available for women with our registered lady instructor and block booking is a firm favourite.

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

Kelvin White Driving School offer driving lessons in Somerton and have built a reputation of being the no 1 rated and premier driving school in the local Somerton area by new drivers.

There are currently six fully qualified driving instructors operating in the local Somerton area who have all been CRB checked and registered for your safety. There is also a choice of both male and female driving instructors depending on your preference that offer advice for nervous learners looking for motor car classes. The lady instructors are firm favourites with a good number of women students.

You will also be able to choose affordable packages, bundles, block bookings and deals for beginners, familiarisation sessions are also available for foreign residents and refresher lesson for fully qualified licence holders, should you wish to brush up on your driving skills.

The driving tuition offered is client centred, that means you are not told what you are going to do but you will be able to discuss a plan of action that you are comfortable with. A good example of this would be, where the teacher suggests that a rural drive would be appropriate at your stage of learning within the syllabus, but you may feel that you are not quite ready, and you may prefer to revisit a previous subject for your reassurance before moving on.

Many students and parents wrongly assume that all driving schools and instructors are the same and this couldn’t be further from the truth! The practice of simply choosing lessons on price alone and looking for the cheapest is fast changing as so many people are now turning to customer reviews to seek the top tutors before making a purchase. Whether it’s the pupil that is paying for their tuition with their own hard-earned money or a parent that has been tasked with finding a suitable training provider, they will both want the best and most compatible tutor to ensure a successful outcome.

Be careful not to fall into the trap of choosing private instruction on a near me basis as almost all tutors will offer a pick up and drop off service within the local area and choosing the nearest or nearby is not necessary. It would be wise to seek out those that are top rated, trusted and recommended by previous students.

The suggestion is to visit several websites and read what previous customers have to say about their driving instructor and in particular read the exact reasons why a pupil is prepared to recommend their teacher.

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

“The main reason for choosing Kelvin White Driving School was seeing all the positive customer reviews the school had received! Also, the pass rate success was a big factor.

 “I chose Kelvin White Driving School as I was impressed with their high pass rates from practical tests at the first attempt! They also had competitive prices and friendly instructors.
