Lucy Madgewick form Midhurst has just passed her driving test

I failed my driving test seven times before trying automatic with 1st Castle. They really helped me perfect my driving skills and gave my confidence a massive boost. Inside four months I felt like a safe confident driver. Not only did I pass my test first time, I did so with a clean sheet! The


Congratulations Tyrone

my driving lessons with Matt were pretty cool. I chose him because I had been advised he sort of knew what he on about (haha). He was easy to get on with and chose the right methods to teach me.


Congratulations Caprice!

I chose 1st Castle because they advertise manual and automatic cars and were very helpful when I phoned up for more information. I was worried about collisioning the car but I needn’t have worried as my instructor had a calming influence and did not start the lesson until we had discussed the lesson plan. I


Congratulations Paula!

It still hasn’t really sunk in yet that I have passed, I keep telling myself, “You did, you can drive”.  My worst fear with driving was roundabouts – awful things! However with the great guidance from my instructor I found that I could tackle anything. I chose 1st Castle for their outstanding record and also


Congratulations Katrina!

Thank you very much for getting me through my test.  I never ever thought I would be driving.  I have always been very nervous in a car but you made me feel so comfortable.  I had been with another driving school before 1st Castle but I did not feel confident and was never made to


Congratulations Nimmy!

I Still cannot believe that I’ve passed – was still so scared on Thursday!  One of my worst fears was being observed whilst driving.  Having driven previously overseas, driving with an instructor in the car again surprisingly took me very little time to get used to.  Having an examiner was harder – my worst nightmare! 


I Couldn’t Ask For a Better Instructor

Hi Gill, I just wanted to thank you for your kindness, patience, humour and understanding during all of my lessons. I couldn’t aks for a better instructor.  You’re a star 🙂 Thanks again for all.


I Nearly Gave Up On Several Occasions

Just wanted to say how grateful I am for all the support, patience and advice you have given me since learning to drive with you. As you know I nearly gave up on several occasions but your positive attitude and encouragement really got me through. I would highly recommend you to anyone learning to drive


Thank You Barbara!

I was ready to throw the towel in with driving… 1st Castle has given me a real chance and belief in my ability to do it.  They are accommodating, friendly and reliable.  I will definitely recommend them to anyone needing lessons. Thanks guys.
