I had a lovely time learning to drive with Shirley. Gave me confidence throughout the whole experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them!

Fay Singleton (Passed in 2021 - Aged 18), Colchester

I had lessons with both Paul and Shirley, they were both excellent instructors and really polished up my driving before my test. Their lessons really supported my actual understanding of UK roads so that I feel confident driving by myself and in new areas. Thank you very much to you both!

Evie Sargeant (Passed in 2021 - Aged 18), St Osyth

Phil was an excellent driving instructor. He explained everything very clearly and was always very calm, even when made I made mistakes and he had to help me out, so I always felt safe and confident when I was learning with him. He was always quick to identify any mistakes I made so that I could learn from them as well. I really enjoyed my lessons with him. Thank you Phil!

My lessons were great, I got recommended this driving school by my older sister who had just started lessons with Shirley, I had a blast learning to drive and Shirley helped me with overcoming areas of driving I previously struggled with. So thank you Shirley, me and my sister hope to see you soon and maybe have you teach our younger siblings in a few years time

I can’t thank shirley enough for helping me learn to drive from day one. I was nervous to start driving but was immediately felt comfortable when sat next to shirley. Would recommend castle to anyone. Thanks to castle and shirley.

Madison Boughton(Aged 17), Colchester

Thank you so much to Castle Driving School, and Paul specifically, for being such an understanding and effective teacher and making me feel at ease in the driving seat, meaning I passed first time! I couldn't recommend Paul enough, and am so thankful for the independence I now have :)

Holly Bolton (Passed in 2021 - Aged 22), Brightlingsea

My experience at Castle Driving School has been nothing but encouraging and motivating when learning how to drive. I have to say thank you to Matt my driving instructor who has been so patient with me but also challenged me to push myself outside of my boundaries. He made me comfortable when driving and focused on any areas of weakness I have. Overall, Matt has been a great instructor and I’m grateful for all the time and help that he has put in to my driving journey.

I never could have passed my test without Shirley. Despite the lockdowns and test cancellations, Shirley has been amazing and helped me so much with my nerves. She is so supportive and from the start has enabled me to become a driver with high standard and helped me overcome my nerves.

Lace Moules (Passed in 2021 - Aged 19), Colchester

Shirley helped me to achieve a pass first time and a I couldn’t recommend her / Castle Driving enough. She was always patient, friendly and thorough with her teaching and goes above and beyond to assist. Thank you Shirley!

Kirsty Jarvis (Passed in 2021)

Would 100% recommend Castle, they helped me so much when I was extremely nervous. They give great examples on how to do things verbally and visually so doing certain things were made a lot clearer.
