About us

Not Your Normal Driving School

We pride ourselves on being not only professional but also friendly. We know how important it is to have an approachable instructor and we also want your memories of learning to drive to be fond ones!

We only use fully qualified instructors, a policy almost unique for a larger driving school. We will not use trainee instructors as we think it unfair to charge the same for a trainee as a fully qualifed instructor, experience counts for a lot in this profession. All our instructors proudly display a green badge in the windscreen, trainees display a pink.

That’s why we’ve got our blog – the hub of the 1st Castle community! Full of tips as well as our latest news and success-stories.

You can also meet our team and delve a little deeper into the  journey that bought them to 1st Castle.
