From Student Alf McGrath

“Thanks for your patience and getting me through my driving instructor test now fully qualified proving even at 65 its not too late to learn Thanks”

He really is brilliant instructor!

“Review I would very highly recommend Ian Beard if you are thinking about taking driving lessons. He really is brilliant instructor. Always patient, ready and up for answering any questions. From the get go, you can tell you are in good hands, as he is very clear with his tutoring. He is always there to give you a push in the right direction with all aspects of driving, as well as with the all important Theory Test! He will always send you a very handy reminder of upcoming lessons, in which he will always arrive right on the dot. I strongly believe it is because of Ian that I passed first time.”

It’s unbelievable he made me pass within two weeks ..

It was my pleasure to get mr Ian beard as my instructor, who is not only an experienced instructor but also a very friendly guy who helped me build my confidence. I thoroughly enjoyed all my lessons with him. I managed to pass my driving test within 30 hours of training with mr Ian..I still can’t believe…I would Definitely recommend people around Colchester to go with Mr Ian if u wanna learn driving n pass your test like I did..


Matt’s Driving Lessons in Colchester

It was a pleasure to be Ian’s student, his enthusiastic, supportive and informative approach made learning to drive an enjoyable experience. From my first day behind the wheel to passing my test Ian was able to offer the right level of support and guidance. Through Ian’s wealth of experience, knowledge and driving skills I have learnt to drive safely, confidently and with precision. Thanks again, Matt

My lessons with Ian were fantastic

“From day one I felt comfortable and at ease. He was incredibly patient and made sure I was happy with everything we were doing and had a clear understanding at each step. Ian always sent a reminder about my lesson the day before and was always ready and waiting to go at the time of appointment. Ian even provided free theory test training in person and through online resources. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!” — Sean

very friendly. thank you Ian

I would highly recommend Ian, as he is a very patient and calming instructor. He was also very friendly and made me feel at ease as I was a nervous driver. I now feel confident and capable, so thanks Ian for helping me pass.

I would recommend Ian

Calm, patient and positive….when I took my part 3 test I knew exactly how to prepare for the test and what to expect throughout the test as Ian covered this in great detail, which I found gave me confidence in myself….passed my part 3 training on my first attempt.

I got full marks. thanks to Ian

accommodating and flexible….even when I used to repeat some mistakes, Ian was patient and would keep trying until it’s fixed….helped me prepare for the theory test… I managed to get full marks (50/50)….would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn.

Pass on my first attempt

with Ian’s help I managed to pass on my first attempt….was on time for every training session…teaching skills were just second to none….very patent, polite instructor and I would recommend him to anyone.

Perfect instructor

I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you for teaching me the manoeuvres. On the way to work today I had to do a three point turn on Wivenhoe road. Everyone in the queue was watching me and I executed it perfectly.
