Paul Turnbull helped me to achieve a pass with only one minor fault. This fantastic result was down to fantastic instruction, as well as Paul’s vast knowledge on the tips & tricks needed to fly through the exam. Although lockdown did impact the course, Paul was very helpful keeping me up to date & fully informed. I would recommend the intensive course & specifically would recommend Paul.

I cannot recommend Castle Driving School and/or Paul enough. With great advice, a friendly approach and excellent tips, I was able to pass first time, which is something I was not sure I could've done without Paul's help!

Phil was a wonderful instructor. It was a very pleasant and quality learning experience. Felt relaxed with calm conversation while learning from a clearly experienced teacher helping me to pick up on weak spots and improve my driving. I strongly recommend for anyone looking to pick up some lessons.

I would like to pass on my heart felt thanks to Shirley for the dedication and high standard that you taught my son with a pass first time with one minor. Thank you

Before learning to drive with castle, I felt that many other driving schools did not offer a service of value. However, learning to drive with castle enabled me to acquire a high, competent standard of learning from Shirley that from my experience with learning to drive, is difficult to come across. This is true as I was not just taught how to drive, but I was taught how to drive correctly and safely through many mock tests that enabled my driving ability to be test ready which enabled me to pass my driving test the first time. Learning to drive at castle through Shirley is the only place I would recommend to attain such a high level service.
