Shirley was recommended to me by a couple of friends, and is a gem! I felt so comfortable since the first lesson and she gave me the confidence that I didn’t have. I passed first time with 1 minor and that was all down to her. Not a bad word to say!!

I passed my test with Martin as my third instructor. My previous 2 quit mid way through teaching me. Martin was an AMAZING teacher and really funny but serious when needs be. He taught me to drive very well and was always patient and helpful with anything I was unsure of. I passed first time with just 2 minors after being taught by him and I highly recommend him as an instructor.

Cheers Martin!!

Amazing experience with castle driving, in particular with Pam. Really helped me improve my driving and confidence behind the wheel, also was very flexible with booking lessons around a busy schedule, would definitely recommend to others

I passed first time with no minors with Castle Driving School and I could not recommend them enough. Especially instructor, Shirely - it was mainly all down to her. She made me thoroughly enjoy learning to drive, amazing to learn with and a great teacher.

Phil was a fantastic instructor, he supported me through the whole process and even when it was tough for me to fit in lessons he was flexible and went out of his way to fit me in. He planned an individual course of action that made the whole process a dream. I would highly reccomend Phil to anyone wanting to get on the road. A top guy who knows how to teach.

I had instructor Phil O'Keefe and couldn't have asked for any more. He was friendly, supportive and taught me everything I needed to know. Really pleased with the help and service received. 10/10.

After Shirley was recommended to me from a friend, I had weekly lessons with her. My confidence and ability grew week to week with the support from Shirley and she made me feel extremely comfortable in the car, and able to ask any questions where need be. I passed first time without any minors and would recommend to all!

Olivia Freeman (Passed in 2017 - Aged 17), Colchester

I came across Castle Driving School as I was looking for an intense driving course. Having never driven before I was very nervous. Paul made me feel at ease and made me believe I could do it. With great advice, pointers, tips and open dialogue, I was able to pass my test first time. Thanks Paul!
