After having a confidence knock with a different driving school, I was very anxious about driving and didn't enjoy it. Not only has Phil helped me pass my test first time, he has made me like driving again. Couldn't recommend him enough!

Elizabeth Dyer (Passed in 2021 - Aged 17), Colchester

Shirley my instructor was brilliant. Understanding, patient, lovely to be taught by and made me feel more confident every lesson. I could not have done it without her. I would highly highly recommend any starter at any age to definitely have Shirley as your instructor. She’s the best.

Jeevan Bains (Passed in 2021 - Aged 32), Colchester

I had my driving lessons with Phil and I would highly recommend. I was so nervous about driving and often got very stressed but he was always calm and his demeanour allowed me to develop my confidence. Overall, Phil’s amazing teaching helped my to pass my test first time.

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!

Isaac Holt (Passed in 2021 - Aged 18), Colchester

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

Billy Moules (Passed in 2021 - Aged 18), Colchester

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.
