What Makes Us Different From Other Driving Schools?
Not all driving schools are created equally, and because of this, you want to know what sets one school apart from the next. Here at Bill’s Driving School we ensure a pleasant and effective solution for everyone. This includes the teen taking the lessons, as well as their parents.

Pick Up and Drop Off
We can pick up and drop off from home/school or work. We offer a minimum of a 2 hour lesson in one day. Our Driving lessons take place in our Dual controlled newer mid-sized sedans. We are licensed through the DMV and we carry insurance on all of our vehicles and keep them properly maintained. The student needs to either have a driver's permit or license in order to take behind the wheel driving lessons. We also provide written evaluations for an additional charge. Online Driver's Education is also available with a discounted price if you enroll through our website.Learn about our programs.
Programs For Everyone
We provide lessons to those of all ages. Teens, Anxious Adults, Seniors , Au Pairs or anyone else that is wanting to learn safe defensive driving techniques that are usually only acquired after years of experience. We strongly encourage whomever the Student will be practicing with to also come along on the lesson. This way that person can reinforce the instruction that is given on each lesson. As with learning anything practice and repetition is very important to develop that muscle memory. Our main focus is to create safe Drivers not just pass a DMV test.
Safer Training Vehicles
Our driving lessons are conducted in cars specially equipped with accelerator and brake controls on the instructor’s side, unlike other driving schools. (DMV only requires that training vehicles have a brake pedal.) This enables our instructors to actually drive the car, not just to stop it, providing a much safer experience for the student. We also train in full size vehicles, not compact cars.
Family Friendly Instruction
We encourage parents and/or family members to ride along during driving lessons, although many other schools don’t allow it,This allows them the opportunity to watch how a professional instructor teaches, greatly improving their own ability to coach their son or daughter, or other family member in a much safer manner.
Defensive Driving Techniques
Just preparing the student to pass the driving test to get their driver’s license is not at all the sole focus of our lesson plan. We train our students in defensive driving techniques in a wide range of driving environments so that they will become capable, responsible, safe drivers. The skills acquired in this process though, almost inevitably result in the high success rate of our student’s passing their driver’s test the first time.
