At the beginning

I wasn’t really getting the whole ‘I can’t wait to drive’ feeling. I was extremely nervous obviously I wanted to do it but I had absolutely no confidence, but Jay had loads of patience, he helped me stick at it, he helped me build my confidence and He understood me  and taught me on my level, I had never driven a car until my first lesson, yet I passed first time he made me feel very comfortable behind the wheel. I would definitely advise anyone who wants to learn to drive to go with Jay. He really does know how to make you feel relaxed. I know that anyone who chooses to go with Jay in the future will have a really pleasant experience!
Thanks Jay x

I found Jay very helpful

when I was trying to learn to drive and always pushing me to do more every lesson and progress as fast as I could. If I struggled with something like parallel parking we would try to figure out a solution together and find a way that best suits me style to of driving as well as staying safe on the road. Jay is a great instructor and would recommend him to anyone.

All good Jay 🙂

I passed my test first time, thanks to Jay’s excellent knowledge and guidance throughout the learning period. Jay progressed at my pace when learning, which made the process comfortable but also enjoyable, moving rapidly if I was good at something but spending time improving my weaknesses. This made sure that I was well prepared for the driving test. Jay also provides solid feedback during lessons and at the end, so you know where to improve next time! I would definitely recommend Jay to anyone looking for a brilliant driving instructor!

Good luck!


Jay is a fantastic teacher

who makes learning to drive really enjoyable. When I first started learning with him I had absolutely no driving experience at all. However due to Jay’s patience and personal teaching style I was able to pass my test first time with no minors.

Thank you Jay

My first lesson

with jay was around a year ago now, I had been with many instructors but just hadn’t found one to suit me. I got on with jay straight away, he was easy to get along with and very patient. I stopped my lessons for a few months due to money problems, but as soon as I was in a good position to start again he got me booked in as soon as he could, and we picked up where we left off. I found out I was expecting a baby so knew I had to push on with my lessons, so me and jay booked blocks and did lots of practicing. He was patient with me through my hormonal emotional and stressed times in pregnancy, and never gave up on me. He has a lovely balance of being laid back but also strict when he needs to be. That’s how I learnt so well. Thank you jay for helping me to pass my test first time. You should be a proud instructor.

Thank you

Where you want to be

Jays driving school is where you want to be, jay helped me work towards my first time pass and also helped me pass my theory test. Driving seems scary but Jay takes all those fears away.
Top man.

Conner Furnell

highly recommend him

After a bad experience with another driving instructor Jay got me refocused and believing I could pass my test. He creates a relaxed and positive atmosphere in the car, which is exactly what you need when practising, and goes through everything you need to pass!! I would highly recommend him!!

Sam Fawcett

Seriously Recommend

I seriously recommend jay as an instructor , having spoken to friends who are learning to drive with other schools and struggling, it’s obvious he is a phenomenal instructor. So calm and the loveliest person to chat to whilst learning. I couldn’t have been more prepared for my test and I passed first time all thanks to his teaching. He doesn’t just teach you to pass he teaches you how to drive and I can’t thank him enough.

Jane Read

Big Thank You

I would just like to say a big thank you to my driving instructor jay for supporting me through out the lessons we had together. I finally got there in the end and still cannot believe I managed to pass the test. Without your constant guidance and attention this would not have been possible.

Thank you once again!

Boosted my Confidence

Jay really helped boost my confidence as a driver, from the first assessment to the day of the test, I felt at ease and like this was something I could definitely do.

I had some bad experiences in the past and was quite nervous about the whole process, but that all changed the minute I got in the car with Jay. He really helped me overcome my worries. He was positive and constructive throughout and his way of teaching is the reason I managed to pass first time. Thank You!!!

Absolutely Amazing

After a horrific car accident I hadn’t got back in the car for nearly a year. Jay was absolutely amazing!! He took things at my pace and made sure I was entirely comfortable at all times! If you’re hesitating to get back in the drivers seat… Take the plunge and go with jay! Thank you, Jay!!

Elizabeth Dale

Very Professional

I have passed my driving test today and I am very thankful to jay for this. He’s an amazing instructor and I would highly recommend him to anybody who needs some help in getting through the test. Learning to drive took me quite a long time and after failing my test many times with different instructor from different school I nearly lost all my hope. I was really lucky to meet jay and to be one of his pupils, he’s very patient and he was truly interested in my success on the test. Very professional and scrupulous when teaching and I was learning and improving every single lesson with him. Thank you!!

Fredd Ericsson

Extremely Patient

Jay was my driving instructor. He was extremely patient, and kept me calm. He had a very good way of communicating things so that i understood exactly what i needed to do. He was flexible with time and pick up/ drop off place and understanding if i needed to change a time or day. I did not have any bad experiences with jay and i would highly recommend him.

Eddie Matthews

Superb Instructor

Jay is an amazing instructor. I passed with him first time whilst I was still 17. I learnt how to drive with him whilst enjoying every second of it. I passed as a confident driver all thanks to jay. He’s a superb instructor and I loved learning with him.

Ria Khan

Gain Confidence Again

After having bad experiences with driving in my teens I put the thought of ever passing my test to the back of my mind, 10 years later I decided to give it another shot. I took an intensive course with jay and really could not have asked for a better instructor. His calm, relaxed teaching manner was just what I needed to gain confidence again. He didn’t even mind my constant talking to myself!

Thank you so much.

Jessica Moon


I took weekly lessons with Jay for three months and am delighted with his instruction and guidance. He was flexible enough to fit my lessons in around my travel schedule for work, and managed to do most lessons within my lunch break. His teaching manner was calm and relaxed, giving me confidence in my own ability. I passed first time with one minor fault, a success I owe to his instruction and the helpful mock test we did during my penultimate lesson. I can, have, and will continue to recommend Hayes to friends and family. Thanks again Jay

Quality driving tuition

After rushing a driving intensive course with another school and the frustration of having failed a few driving tests I was looking for a decent driving school that would be able to help. My wife passed with Jay many years ago and had a good experience so I thought I would try learning with him. My instructor jay not only helped me pass the driving test but through his patience, experience and genuine commitment to see me develop, he has enabled me to not only pass my test, but be a confident driver. I would not hesitate to recommend my instructor jay to anyone searching for quality driving tuition.

Thanks jay and all the best!

Stefano Sev

Boosted my Confidence 100%

I started to think i would never feel comfortable driving until I had Jay as an instructor. He made me feel very relaxed, explained everything extremely well and boosted my confidence 100%. Would definitely recommend. Thank you so much 🙂

Sia Reed

Highly Recommend

Big thanks to Jay for helping me pass my test. My experience with driving instructors was pretty abysmal and I was beginning to get downhearted about ever passing my test or even enjoying driving again, until I called Castle. My experience could not have been more different with jay from the moment I picked up the phone he was professional, good humoured and honest and my confidence showed in my driving. There are so many cowboys out there and I regret spending so much money on them. If I were learning to drive again I’d go straight to Jay and would highly recommend him to everyone.

Once again thanks Jay

Paul Baker

Believe in yourself

He is very professional and easy going bloke with a calming influence which gives you the confidence to believe in yourself. Jay provided me with video materials and encouragement, and made it fun along the way. A massive thank you to Jay for helping me to pass my driving test. I would most definitely recommend him as he is very polite, friendly and very patient.
