A copy of this code is available on request.


As we are one of the longest established driving schools in Torbay we definitely understand that some people may be quite nervous about booking their driving lessons, please don't worry about this because Williams  Driving School has a policy of only employing driving instructors that are genuinely friendly people and easy to get on with.
