“Dear Tim, Dear Nathan

I would like to express my gratitude and that of the group to you both for you efficient help in finding us a new minibus and getting it logoed and delivered in a week. It really was an amazing turn around.
From our first meeting with Tim I knew we were in good hands and when Tim went on leave, everything was seamlessly handled by Nathan.
Please pass on our thanks to all your staff including the team who arranged the logoing, and Paul who delivered the bus.

With Best regards

Guy Roberts”

‘Castle Minibus have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. We had some quite specific business needs with regards to the leasing of a minibus and they were understanding, flexible, informative and proactive throughout our dealings. They will definitely be somebody I will recommend to others seeking to lease vehicles!’

‘I am very impressed with BT Fleet. They took to task on our four 63 plates. Dave was on creeper boards checking underneath, taking wheels off to check rear brakes and inner tyre pressures where needed. I can see a very thorough safety inspection has taken place.

Very positive move for the operators and Castle Minibus.

Best regards.

‘I attended a [MiDAS] minibus training session at Brighouse High School, West Yorkshire. (On Monday 17th June 2019). Your instructor was Mr Cliff Kelly. I would like to say that I thought Mr Kelly was an excellent trainer and delivered the assessment day in a highly professional manner. I am a retired West Yorkshire Police officer and have had the benefit of attending numerous advanced driver training courses during my 30 yrs with the force. I can say with a degree of certainty that Mr Kelly’s abilities are right up there with the best!

He is clearly an asset to your organisation and I think I can speak for my fellow students when I say we all enjoyed the day very much. Mr Kelly delivered his comments with a great sense of humour, and I found his feedback on the driving aspect of the day extremely accurate and thought provoking. All in all, well done..

‘Thank you, and yes the training was perfect. Paul was great and actually made me feel like I was going to pass, which isn’t the norm.

Regards, Richard.’

Richard Perry, Melbourn Village College

‘Just to let you know, I passed my D1 driving test yesterday and am very relieved.

I send this email to thank you for the resources but I also want to extend a massive thank you to Paul. Not only was he professional and so clearly experienced in all things driving, but he was so supportive and a really lovely man.

Without gushing, I felt like I could ask any question without feeling silly and that his instruction was tailored to my needs rather than an agenda that he needed to fulfil.

I had an excellent experience with him over the last two days and I am genuinely grateful for his guidance and in honesty, I would have said the same if I had failed.

Thank you again.


Nicole Newby, Langdon Academy

‘I would like to pass on my thanks to Liz who was an excellent instructor. Firm but fair and with a personable manner. I enjoyed my two days and was very happy with Liz as my instructor. I would certainly recommend her. She gave me confidence.!!!!!!

Edward Welch, Bristol Cathedral Choir School

Once again a huge thank you for pulling out the stops to get the bus delivered today, it really is appreciated. It definitely confirms that you were the right choice in supplying our minibus. I will be singing your praises to anyone who is thinking of getting a minibus.

A massive thank you !!

Andrew Beckinsale-Yates, Broomhill Junior School

We are delighted that both David Winter and Matt Nichol have passed!

They both thoroughly enjoyed the training and as a school we have been very impressed with the quality and administration of all contact with Castle. In addition, both candidates gave very positive feedback about Cliff.

Louise Bainbridge, School Business Manager, Bernard Gilpin Primary School

Our minibus is absolutely amazing. We`ve started picking up and returning children who live a long way away. And of course it`s publicity for us when we are out and about. I wish we could have got one ages ago.”

Linda Bradley, Byker Primary School

‘Everything seemed to go well with the training, Thanks again to you for finding another trainer when the original trainer was unavailable,

and to the trainer herself for stepping in to pick this up – it would have been extremely difficult for me to rearrange given the pressures on teaching staff time.’

Louise Simmonds, Langley Grammar School

‘From my side, I find you all extremely helpful. 

You were very patient with me answering numerous questions when I first contacted you and then dealt with the initial set up so swiftly. Anne is always following up and keeping me informed, which I need! If I ever ask for updates, Anne promptly lets me know what I need.


From Linden:

‘They were excellent, instructor was an especially nice guy. 10/10 from me.

I thought it pertinent to send a quick e-mail thanking the team for an excellent [MCC] workshop and discussions yesterday. Paul, Chris and Darren have a wealth of knowledge between them and were more than happy to share it with the attendees. A great day’s workshop thank you.

It was refreshing to participate in such an open and free-thinking discussion, with no marketing!!!

Sarah Williams,
Christ College

‘I really enjoyed the [MCC] course in Cardiff yesterday, it was very worthwhile. Cliff did say that if we needed any Section 19 Permits you could send some. Could I possibly have six please?

I ask because Cliff’s warning that the DVSA were doing their rounds was very timely. I had a phone call at 7.30pm last night to say that the Police and a DVSA inspector had followed one of our minibuses back to School after their evening run and did a spot check. All OK apart from the fact that although the permit was in the bus it wasn’t on display – hence my request!

Kind regards

Nicola Ward, School Business Manager,
Spire Nursery and Infant School

I will relax now knowing that all is in place and we will have our super-duper minibus in a few weeks. Thank you so much for all of your help and for being so patient. You were both truly lovely today to deal with and it made it all the more of a pleasure to do business with you.
Thanks again.

9/10 – Very informative [MCC] workshop. Learned various elements to managing the fleet of school minibuses at school and appointing a ‘Transport Manager’.

‘Very straight forward thank you, looking forward to a long partnership hopefully.
