Couldn’t be more grateful to Pass it! I couldn’t have done this in a safer surrounding and fun environment. Thank you so much for helping me pass! Whoop Whoop!! Highly recommend!

I couldn't recommend Pass it! enough... the instructors don’t make you feel silly if you make a mistake, so friendly and patient and he put up with a lot of my swearing and tantrums! Thank you so much!!
Pass it! is 100% the best Driving School in Colchester, Always reliable and professional. He makes every manoeuvre really simple and takes you step by step on everything. If you are wanting to learn how to drive safely then I could not recommend anyone else other than Jay. 
My brilliant instructor taught everything perfectly and in-depth! Couldn’t recommend enough!! Thanks for everything!
I can’t praise Pass it Driving Academy enough. I passed my test this morning first time and that’s all down to the experience I’ve had with My instructor. He put me at ease from the start even though I’ve always been a nervous driver. They are professional but friendly which makes the whole experience relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you so much for getting me through my test.
Jay is an absolute legend! I literally cannot recommend him enough! He teaches you the easiest way for you to actually learn, genuinely cares about his students and has the patience of an actual saint! Learn to drive with Pass it!, you absolutely will not regret it!



I can’t recommend Pass it! enough. My instructor helped me develop my driving so much from the time I was with him and passed my test with confidence because of his patience! I couldn’t have passed without him being such a great instructor!!
Honestly an amazing driving academy and lovely instructor. Very patient and makes you feel at ease. Was always flexible to fit lessons around my schedule and explained everything fluently. Jay helped me to pass first time without charging me for extra lessons that I didn’t need! I would recommend to everyone!
Best driving academy I could of asked for! My instructor taught whichever way is best for you and made driving fun instead of scary! Thank you so much.
Highly recommend, was always patient with me no matter how frustrated I was. Had different ways of teaching manoeuvres to best suit me, lessons were always a pleasure.
I found that Jay teaches very passionately, he also can have fun so you can feel comfortable. Best instructor I’ve had, I would highly recommend him.
A big big thank you to my great teacher Jay! I strongly recommend him, he has been incredibly patient but at the same time rightly very strict, always encouraging (unlike my husband) and very nice. I am a ‘senior’ who finally decided rather late in life that after all a driving licence can be useful. Thanks to Jay and Pass it! Driving Academy I passed from being an absolute zero on the road to being a confident driver, so I hope my experience can encourage other people like me, not exactly young. I passed with only two minor faults!
Passed first time, only 4 minor faults. Great instructor!
Really nice driving instructor, helped me pick up driving safely and quickly. Good  price for lessons as well. Highly recommend!
I cannot thank Jay Enough! 
1. For putting up with me.
2. For teaching me the ropes.
3. For getting me through my test with a first time pass!
4. For making me laugh and feel super comfortable learning with him!
You are fab and I cannot recommend you more highly. Thanks for everything!
Very good instructor. Easy to talk to and very helpful with any queries I had. Thank you very much Chris. I passed first time!
Big thank you to Chris for being very patient and giving me the confidence to pass first time. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Chris is a very good instructor he has great banter but rightly strict when you need to concentrate on your lesson. Very flexible and reliable. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to pass first time, just like I did!
Many thanks to Chris for giving me the confidence to pass first time. I will definitely be recommending you to any friends who are looking for a driving instructor.
Chris is a very nice Instructor and helped me to pass in Colchester using a 4 day - 20 hour intensive course. Thank you so much!
Would definitely recommend! Chris will cater to every need especially nerves coming up to your test, giving me the best reassurance. I booked my test a day in advanced and Chris was willing to not only do a lesson there and then but to free up his morning so I was able to do my driving test!
Thank you Chris for all your help!
Chris is a really friendly and nice instructor who accommodates you to reach your driving goals. I booked my driving test about 4 days in advance and he was willing to get me booked in for some practice lessons before the test.
I have had absolutely no problems with Chris, passing with only 1 minor first time. I would definitely recommend him if you’re wanting to learn to drive!
Great instructor! Couldn’t ask for a better one, would recommend to any one looking for lessons.
Jay has gone above and beyond to help Hallie pass her test, everything is professional and so immaculately organised, superb progress tracker app top class tuition and a very nice instructor to be around, I really cannot recommend this company enough every aspect of their service has been over and above what we could have expected, especially during this Covid period where everyone is needing lessons and a test. Jay has absolutely bent over backwards to help.
Thank you so much we really appreciate everything you have done.
Can’t thank Chris enough for the time and effort he gave me! Passed first time in my own car all thanks to him!
