I would like to say a big thank you to Julie for all of her help. I passed my driving test in 1990 but never drove after that point.... until now that is. I was extremely nervous and had no confidence. Julie helped me to overcome this with her patience, understanding and great hints and tips. I am so grateful!

Had the one of the best experiences with Castle driving school, I’ve only had one instructor but Eddie was most certainly the best, he was patient with my driving from start to finish, and with nearly two years of lessons I passed first time, Eddie is one of the best instructors by far and allowed me to develop my driving Carefully and Stressfree, not only ensuring that I was a confident drivier but also making sure I would be confident when driving on my own, couldn’t recommend him enough.

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

Danisha Rajoo (Passed in 2018 - Aged 22), Colchester

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.

Harriet Cook (Passed in 2018 - Aged 17), Colchester

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.
