Meet the Instructors

Hi my name is Paul I am a fully approved driving instructor in Colchester. I’m also the proprietor of Steer We Go Learners.  I’ve lived in Colchester all my life yet have travelled many miles around the country.

For years I worked as a store and regional manager in retail.  I have always worked close with people getting their strengths through developing great people for the future.

I’ve always loved training and coaching and I have had immense success since becoming a driving instructor. I’ve taught people to pass the driving test and also taught new driving instructors to pass their driving instructor tests.

I’m patient and jovial and have been told I have a great teaching style from all my students. I look forward to teaching you!

Driving Instructor Barry

Hi, I’m Barry, I’m a 47 year old husband and father and grandad. I’ve lived in Colchester for the past 14 years. I’ve been involved in driving, care and training in some way for most of my working life and am now a fully qualified driving instructor. I like a good joke and a laugh and I’m a easy going but firm person.

I became a driving instructor to enjoy the challenges it presents. In my background I like to train and help people from all walks of life to achieve their goals. It’s very satisfying to take a novice driver and help them become a safe, fully qualified driver.

On my time off I like to eat out with family, I also like to cook a nice meal. I’m pretty good with technology and a hammer and a drill as don’t mind a bit of DIY. I like a good movie but DC legends and Dr Who are my favourites or anything Marvel, and love custard creams and ice cream but not together!

I look forward to teaching you.




Instructor Robbie

Hi my name is Robbie and I am a fully qualified driving instructor based in Colchester Essex.

I have a vast customer service background, this has provided me with lots of patience and the ability to train others.

I am also a professional DJ. Music means a lot to me. Nothing more relaxing than music!

I look forward to teaching you to drive and bringing you to the standard needed to pass a driving test.





Driving Instructor - Brad

Hi I’m Brad

I can drive anything… only things I can’t drive are a tank and a plane and I’m working on the tank!

I like driving, have done since I got my license and love being able to drive on a long journey with music going- it makes you feel free.

I’ve started this journey to be a driving instructor because I like helping people achieve their goals, and teaching people to drive is giving them a life skill that helps them better not only their lives but also their career in some cases.

A bit about myself: I love learning new things and meeting new people and finding out things people’s interests and likes. I myself am into wrestling and anything Marvel or DC, so I can get a bit nerdy!

I have a good, kind laid back nature that I think helps with anyone who may have a bit of anxiety or is nervous to even get behind the wheel of a car.

My aim is to help you get out on the road and enjoy driving just like I do.
