Kamil Cedro is an excellent Instructor
He opened my eyes to many grey areas that were affecting my mastery of driving skills. I understood how the way i drive is connected to how I handle other tasks; my level of concentration, mindfulness and attention to detail most especially. I hold on to the many lessons learnt while with him and I apply it to other areas.
Thank you Kamil
I learnt with Kevin and he was the best instructor I could have gotten. I was extremely nervous and he was really good at explaining everything well and being patient with me. Still can’t believe I passed! Thank you soRead more “Thank you!!”

First time pass with Steve Pearce!
Steve ironed all these out and from that, it gave me confidence, made me feel safer and in more control of the car and I passed first time with 1 minor.
I just want to thank Steve, as this has genuinely changed my life. Since passing my test my work has offered me a managerial role as I can now drive and have a car so that means a salary increase and loads of little benefits .
Cheers Steve , all the best for the future ?
STEVE PEARCE IS THE BEST!
ON CLOUD 9!
I just won’t to say a big thank you, to Justin at First Castle Cars, for believing in me and not giving up on me, I suffered with low self esteem and a lack of confidence with driving. Justin made me feel at ease and gave me the confidence to believe I could pass.
Keep up the good work!
Thanks again Kelly
Amazing experience, first class instructor
Passed 1st time, thanks Steve
I almost bottled my test!
Keep up the good work!
Thanks again Kelly.
First Time Pass.
I passed first time after lessons with. Steve Pearce, he was superb. Having had lessons with another instructor in another part of the UK, I learnt more with Steve in a three hour lesson than many other lessons combined. Throughout my lessons he was calm, professional, and encouraging. Thank you SteveRead more “First Time Pass.”

Just passed first time thanks to Paul! His intructions were always clear and he paced learning in a way that didnt overwhelm me with information. He was incredibly patient, friendly, supportive and ensured I was completely ready to pass my test.Read more “Great Instructor”
Refresher course well worth while
I was nervous, naturally, but Steve soon put me at ease, allowing me to regain confidence.
Driving with him in charge made it seem as though the car was driving itself autonomously.. That’s how confident I became. In fact, it was a pleasure chatting whilst driving, during the second refresher.
I will never forget to use all mirrors and be aware of blind spots!
I recently passed my driving test- first attempt. Really appreciative of my driving instructor- Steve Pearce- who had a calm but firm approach to teaching- which is what I needed. Encouraging me to think independently which boosted my confidence in my driving. Super happy with my experience and would definitely recommend toRead more “Great Experience!”
Mike was a great instructor
Mike was a great instructor who helped me develop confidence on the road by being precise and calm in his instructions and even giving up some of his own free time to teach me at the end of each lesson. I would highly recommend this driving school to anyone wanting to start drivingRead more “Mike was a great instructor”
Big shout out to Glynn!

Lucy Madgewick form Midhurst has just passed her driving test
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 teachRead more “Congratulations Tyrone”
I chose 1st Castle for their outstanding record and also my sister passed with them, and I am glad, after all they got through my fears. I have tried other driving schools, but they never really seemed to help, all I did was drive around, with not my guidance from the instructor (that’s when they turned up of course). My instructor with 1st Castle gave me the courage to drive and I felt at ease with him, he never put me down, if I done something wrong he would explain it all over again, which of course is needed when you are tackling your fears.
I was always a little down after my lesson had finished as all I wanted to do was jump back in the car and drive around, it gave me a great feeling knowing that I could drive. I always enjoyed my lessons, and found them extremely helpful, with not a second wasted. I would always recommend 1st Castle to anyone who wishes to learn to drive, without them, me and the kids would still be getting wet! If anyone is reading this who is about to take your test, a little word of advice – DON’T PANIC. Its not all that bad and after all you wouldn’t be there if your instructor didn’t think you were ready. I had a bad attack of the nerves on my test, my instructor was great at trying to calm me, he sat me down and had a chat. The examiners are really not that bad to get in such a state about, just go out and enjoy the experience, which is something I didn’t do through my nerves.
My instructor was really good because he realised that I was a wreck, he kept me calm and didn’t give me time to think – we practised and practised some more – we arrived at the test centre just in time to walk straight in to my test.
I chose 1st Castle after looking up the number in the Yellow pages. I was new to Havant and the UK arriving in September 2006. I was very nervous at first there was so much to learn! My instructor made me feel very relaxed, he never got angry with me or made me feel stupid.
I was a little scared driving out to the Test Centre in Portsmouth on my very first lesson – still haven’t quite lost that feeling that I might drive/fall left off the road! I enjoyed my lessons with 1st Castle after previously having instructors overseas who thought that the only way to be heard was to raise their voices and to shout.
My instructor from 1st Castle was always very patient, polite, and professional. The car was spotlessly clean (unlike mine – washed once in 6 months!), a welcome sight around town with a happy smile!

I Nearly Gave Up On Several Occasions
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. ThanksRead more “Thank You Barbara!”
