Paul was very patient and I felt my confidence increase with every lesson. Thanks to Castle Driving School I now have my independence!

Hannah Masterman (Passed in 2022 - Aged 22), Colchester

Phil was the perfect instructor for me.

He took things at just the right pace so that I never felt like we were wasting time and I never felt rushed into things.

Despite me being shaky at times, he gave me the advice I needed at every point so that I could correct my errors quickly.

Jensen Hoy (Passed in 2022), Colchester (Highwoods)

Today I passed my driving test first time and I just want to thank Phil so much for his time, patience and understanding. From the moment I took my first lesson with him after coming from another driving school, he made me feel really comfortable and relaxed even when I made mistakes.

I would highly recommend Phil to anyone who is just about to start lessons and just want to say thank you again Phil for all your time!

Dalia Baker (Passed in 2022 - Aged 17), Wickham Bishops

I was recommended Castle from a work colleague who passed first time with the help from Shirley. Having never sat behind the wheel of a car (let alone moved off) I felt safe in the hands of my wonderful instructor.

I was able to learn at my own pace and was never pushed to do anything I was uncomfortable with which really helped with my anxiety. Even with a few wobbles I was able to build my confidence and pass first time!

Oh my lovely Shirley, what would I have done without your patience and kindness!

Dearnna Clinkscales (Passed in 2022 - Aged 29), Colchester

Phil was an amazing driving instructor, he was always very kind and patient and I got along with him really well so my driving lessons were always very enjoyable. He taught me how to drive well and was always calm when I made mistakes, teaching me how to correct them. I will miss our lessons a lot.
