All about Colin…

Colin lives in Aigburth and joined us a few years ago from a large national driving school. Colin also uses British Sign Language, (BSL), in fact he has 100% pass rate for his deaf pupils.The challenges some deaf people learning to drive is that they might not know that they can get a driving licence. Those that do cannot get past the theory test very easily. Many driving instructors refuse them or are very impatient with them. This is not the case with Colin, as he has 100% pass rate with his deaf pupils.

Colin was a great instructor and helped me to control my nerves. I never thought I would be able to pass first time. Insight2Drive is a great driving school and I would recommend it to anybody. Thanks a lot. .

I passed my driving test last year with Colin. I started taking my driving lessons with him when he worked for another driving school. I was really nervous about learning to drive and put off taking driving lessons for a few years. Colin was very understanding and put me at ease within a few minutes. When Colin moved to Insight 2 Drive I had to make the decision whether to get new driving instructor with the driving school I was currently with, or change to Insight 2 Drive and keep Colin as my driving instructor. The decision was really easy and I stayed with Colin. He was really supportive and was always willing to answer any questions I had (no matter how silly I thought they were). I have recommended Colin to family and friends and would also recommend Colin to anybody who is thinking about taking driving lessons.

I can’t thank Colin enough for everything he’s taught me and how far Ive come in a short space of time. I highly recommend him to anyone as I already have to my sister in law. He is so patient and has so much experience. It took me along time to even approach a driving instructor as I was quite nervous but I felt right at home with Colin not only did he make me feel comfortable but he also gave me the self belief I needed, I passed 2 days ago on my first attempt with only 2 minors and i’d have never predicted it if I’d have been with a different instructor. Words can not comprehend how over the moon and thankful I am for what Colin has done for me. Amazing person in every way and an absolute legend. Take care.

I would like to personally thank Colin for his patience and understanding as a driving instructor. He is an excellent instructor who has helped me endlessly in getting me through my driving test which i passed Friday!! Delighted to say the least!!!! I first met Colin in February this year and i was terrified of driving, hence to say I’ve had my provisional since i was 19, imp now 37!!! For years and years i have gone through various instructors and not been sucessful, mostly giving up after a couple of lessons due to my fear of driving. Thankfully i found Colin, who has gave me self belief in achieving what i once thought was un-achievable!!! Even before my test, i had major doubts but Colin urged me on – Thank you sooooooooo much Colin!! x

I recently passed my test first time at Garston & wanted to say how impressed I was with my instructor Colin. We had about one session a week for the space of three months & he gave me the confidence to become a decent driver. He was always calm, gave good suggestions & advice & taught me the essential skills I needed a to pass the test. I would have no qualms with recommending him to friends (& I already have). You are lucky to have him on your team. Kind regards, Beth
