I took a single driving lesson with Bill, and the improvement in my driving was unbelievable. Bill taught me not only how to control the car, but also how to control my nerves (those being one of my biggest issues during the test). My fear and greatest weakness was always my parallel park, and Bill immediately taught me a fail-safe trick to getting a perfect parallel park, every time. What's better, he put me at ease with his relaxed demeanor, erasing my fear to ask questions and make mistakes. \r
I took my road test almost immediately after the lesson, and got so few points off that I tend to just tell people I aced it (heh). Now I drive safely and confidently, and have been taught skills, tips, and tricks that will stick with me for as long as I drive.\r
If you are considering a lesson, don't hesitate. It will most definitely pay off. And if you are considering using the school car for your road test, I highly recommend it as well -- the car is smooth to drive and very nice to learn & improve on!
