Thanks to Phil's patience and confidence I was able to pass my test the second time round. I had over a year of lessons and found driving tough at times but Phil was always a reliable instructor who helped me when I struggled. He always believed in me and I am really grateful for it! Thank you Phil for all your help!

Sophie Hayes, Colchester

I passed my test today with Phil and just wanted to say how grateful I am for his patience, kindness, and support to get me to this point. I was a very anxious driver but Phil made me feel at ease at all times and was very thorough in his teachings. I would recommend him and Castle to anybody looking for a place to start. Thank you so much!

Phil was absolutely brilliant through the year of learning as he also was when he got my three sisters through the test first time previously. I could not have asked for a better instructor to help me get through the test. Phil was totally clear, concise, professional and reliable throughout the whole experience.

Ollie Handley(Aged 17), Colchester

It was almost a year of quality lessons. I passed first time thanks to being taught how to drive rather than how to pass the test. My instructor i will always remember and it was amazing being under her tutoring.

Phil was an amazing driving instructor. I am so grateful for his lessons and how much I improved at driving. He was very clear and patient at explaining during the lessons so I felt very well prepared for the test. I am so happy that I passed first time. Thank you Phil!

Jemima Holt, Colchester

My experience with Castle was exactly what I was hoping for and more. I did not enjoy driving before I started my course with Paul, and now I cannot wait to get behind the wheel. He helped me pass my test thanks to his calmness and expertise.

Edward Wyatt (Passed in 2023 - Aged 19), Colchester

I just completed my 9 day intensive course with Paul and passed straight away. He was very helpful and patient. I am the third in my family to pass immediately with Castles intensive course and would definitely recommend it!

Daisie T (Passed in 2023), Colchester

I'd done driving lessons before (years ago) and failed a few times, but with Shirley as my instructor what a difference! Friendly, supportive, and an incredibly knowledgable and experienced instructor. My lessons felt tailored to me, and all my nervousness and anxiety was taken into account- Shirley even had tools to help with those! Couldn't recommend her strongly enough!

Ell T (Passed in 2023 - Aged 28), Colchester

My instructor was incredibly kind and understanding, helping me to learn at a pace that I could keep up with. Overall my experience was very positive!
