I went with national driving school for automatic driving lessons and got Trevor as my instructor doing all my lessons and pre tests all around Raheny/Killester area and couldn’t recommend Trevor enough. He put me so at ease and made me feel so much more confident and better in my driving. Couldn’t thank him enough for all his done for me.

Clodagh was amazing done my pre test with her , she went through everything i needed to know and perfected my weak points . Passed with just 3 lessons with her really recommend her so so good!!
I'm excited to share that I passed my driving test on my first attempt! Seweryn from National Driving School was my instructor, and he was really great. Even though I had no driving experience at first, his lessons were well-organized and covered everything important for safe driving, like road positioning and observation. I highly recommend Seweryn to anyone looking to pass their driving test on the first try. Thanks, Seweryn!

I did my driving lessons with Fergal from National Driving School and quite frankly I wouldn't have managed to pass if it wasn't for him. He's very observant, calm and makes you see your mistakes during practice. He was with me at every step of the way helping me iron out the bad habits I had accumulated. Thank you so much Fergal, and The National Driving School for all the support and helping me pass the exam.

I couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor than Jay Hickey. He is so patient and gave clear instructions which made the whole experience more enjoyable. Each lesson and pretest was tailored to my needs, ensuring I always felt confident behind the wheel.Thanks to Jay, I passed my driving test today in the Tallaght test centre. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a skilled and supportive driving instructor.

I highly recommend National Driving School, specially Chris O'Dowd. I passed my test on the firts attempt!! I did all my EDT lessons and pre-test with him.  Chris is the best instructor ever, he gave me the confidence to become a good driver.

I did pre-test lessons with Clodagh, and I passed first time in Tallaght! Clodagh is an excellent instructor, she is so knowledgable on everything about the test & potential test routes. She also takes the time to point out areas where you might get marked on the test so you can look out for them, which I found really really helpful. Highly recommened.!

Chris was a fantastic teacher. He really takes the time to coach a real understanding of technique. I unfortunately had to wait over a year for my test meaning I had picked up a number of bad habits over time. Chris was able to pin point, explain and iron out those habits setting me up for success on the day. He also guided me on what test time to book based on my level of experience. I would recommend doing double lessons to get the most out of Chris’s expertise especially on the day of the test. Jackie was also brilliant and so willing to help by scheduling driving lessons especially on the day of the test.

Brilliant service, found myself one week out from the driving test with all of the wrong information from a previous instructor, got in contact with Kevin for two pretests , learned more than I did in 12 lessons with Aviva and passed my test today. I can’t tell you how much I recommend this service. 👍🏼

I have passed my driving test today in Tallaght from the first try. I could not have done it without Julia,with whom I did some refresher lessons and pre-test.Julia is a great instructor, she made me feel comfortable while driving, she went through step by step instructions with me and had a lot of patience. She gave me tips on how to improve my driving. Thanks to her I learnt how to properly park and do the right manoeuvres. I couldn’t recommend Julia enough!!

Stuart Coulter was my instructor. I passed my driving test today - first time taking it. I would not have passed without Stuart's instruction. He thoroughly prepared me for the test! He is awesome! He is very pleasant and patient, explains things well and provided extra videos describing situations I would encounter on the test. He also provided me with a link showing the traffic signs they would quiz me on as well as questions and answers that I would be asked. I highly recommend Stuart Coulter!!!
I passed my test on the first go! I must give all the credit to my wonderful instructor Adeel. He was so calm and professional.

I have booked lessons and pre-test with Instructor Aurelius. Highly recommended! It was my first time taking the test and I passed successfully (with only two points deducted).He is very attentive, noting all the areas you need improvement on during the pre-test and reinforcing training in those areas. He also provides detailed and patient guidance.Wishing everyone success in passing the test!

I have just passed my full test. I took pretests with Clodagh. I couldn't recommend her more. She's so good at her job. She put me at ease from day 1. I knew there was something I wasn't doing right while driving but i couldn't figure out what it was and after being in the car for 5 minutes with Clodagh she was able to point out where i was going wrong. I was so relieved as I had previously failed my driving test for this reason and she helped me to correct it and definitely gave me the confidence that I needed to pass.
Highly recommended! Although I completed my 12 driving lessons at a different school two years ago, I sought additional guidance and correction of my driving errors. After just three lessons with Clodagh , I successfully passed my driving test on the first attempt. I am truly grateful for the invaluable tips and tricks provided.

I completed my automatic EDT lessons with John Kinane (Dun Laoghaire) and it was truly a wonderful experience.From the get-go, he exhibited patience and accommodation by considering my schedule, which often changes with short notice. He also has a profound understanding of the rules of the road.John also went above and beyond to ensure that I got to practise on the test route and we did a pretest the day before the test. As such, I was more familiar with the route and more relaxed on the test day. I passed my driving test on the first try!I wholeheartedly recommend John to anyone seeking an automatic driving instructor.

I passed my driving test today all thanks to Clodagh. I reached out to her awhile back to do my 12 lessons unfortunately she wasn’t available, so when I had my full test coming up it had to be her who would help me achieve this win.She put me at ease, explained things thoroughly and clearly and I was able to grasp the different techniques and points quickly.So grateful, I couldn’t have done it without her!

Passed my test with Conor O’Toole!! I had the best experience with Conor . After doing my 12 EDT lessons with a different instructor I still felt like I didn’t know how to drive. My 2 hour pre-test with him gave me confidence and cleared all my doubts. He is a super patient driving instructor who taught me exactly what I needed to know for the day of the driving test. Couldn’t recommend him enough!!
12:07 23 Mar 24
Chris was a wonderful and patient teacher. I did my EDT elsewhere and wish I had done them with Chris as in our Pretest and lesson he focused on what I need to improve and made me feel confident enough to pass my test. A patient, kind, and flexible instructor, you can truly tell the folks at NDT care about their students. I’m so happy I went with them for my car hire and would definitely learn with Chris again if I went back for my manual. Highly recommend.

I just passed my driving test today thanks to Julia (NDS) for her guidance, clear instructions & patience! She has gone above & beyond as an instructor to give me (a previously nervous-to-driver person) the encouragement to finally feel comfortable driving, to apply for my test & PASS! I can’t thank her enough for sticking with me 😄
15:38 22 Mar 24
I want to say a big thank you to Keith who is the most patient, calm & cool instructor I’ve ever had (especially when I was a nervous wreck). Thanks to him I passed on my second test, first time in Tallaght - would highly recommend- if you want a pass go to Keith!! 😁

I just passed my test today in Mulhuddart Test Centre with only 2 blemishes. I haven't had a driving lesson in about 4 years, since before COVID so you can imagine all the bad habits I had developed over that time. I just got my test date which I had been waiting for, for about a year. I contacted the school ony last week and a while later, Trevor contacted me to say he had a 2 hour slot available before my test this morning. Well what can I say, Trevor whipped me into shape in those 2 hours, slowly but surely turning those bad habits into good ones. The proof was in the pudding when I was informed after the test that I had only one Grade 1 and one Grade 2 fault! I can't recommend Trevor highly enough! If you are like me and haven't had a lesson in years and have a test coming up, do yourself a favour and ask for Trevor. You won't be disappointed.

I couldn't thank Clodagh enough. I luckily got one of the cancellation slot in Tallaght and requested for a car hire from national driving school. Clodagh was kind enough to contact me swiftly and made all the arrangements. She also gave me a quick refresher lesson before the test which helped me a lot to pass the test. I would definitely recommend Clodagh if you are going to take test in Tallaght. She is very professional, polite and makes you very comfortable while driving.

Was lucky to get a chance to drive with Barney, also rented his car and passed my test!He is patient, polite, friendly and makes you feel at ease. I went from being a very anxious driver to being confident.Took me only 2 days practicing with Barney, prior the driving test I was learning everything nearly from the scratch as I wasn’t driving/practicing for about half a year.He explains everything in small details that there’s no a chance to fail if you listen carefully.Thank you again 🙂

I did my pretest with Clodagh a week before my test and she was excellent. She really helped me brush up on a few weak points and gave me really good constructive feedback that I was able to fix before my test. I passed today because of it. If you're thinking of doing a pretest before your upcoming test there’s nowhere I can recommend more!

I booked 2 lessons and a pre test with Clodagh before attempting a test and she got rid of all my bad habits, took me to more tricky routes. I was so so confused for round about, she showed me where I was doing wrong, shared some professional tips and she thought me so well and she is the only reason that I passed my test today in first attempt. She is very nice, bit strict too as well but she made my day and she is highly recommended

Fantastic driving school. Had Seweryn as my instructor and he really helped build up my confidence and skill. Without him, I definitely wouldn’t have passed first time. Was unprepared for my test less than a month out and after a few lessons I was golden. I was provided every resource needed to help achieve a pass and truly would recommend 100%

I took a few manual lessons and a pretest with Paul for my driving test in Navan. I wasn’t familiar with Navan at all and had failed my driving test twice in Dundalk. Paul was very patient with me, kind and was able to help me improve my driving skills and build up my confidence overall. With his encouragement, videos and notes from National Driving Licence School, I’m delighted to have passed in Navan. I’d highly recommend this driving school for anyone doing a test in Navan, Paul is brilliant and I really enjoyed driving with him.

Dave was the best and calmest driving instructor I ever had and I tried 4 or 5 before. Keeps everything super simple. Nothing overcomplicated. Personable and gives you confidence. I always felt nervous when I sat the test before. This time I was cool, calm and collected and flew through with only 2 Grades 2s. The car Dave rents out for the test is in mint condition and a dream to drive. I highly recommend Dave.

"Thank you so much to Chris from NDLS for the exceptional driving instructor training.His patience, clear instructions, and supportive demeanor made every session enjoyable and effective. With his guidance, I gained confidence and the knowledge to proceed with my 3 stages. He was always available for any questions I had while studying for stage 1 and with his fantastic support and encouragement I passed my Stage 2 with a result of 100%. He was unbelievably flexible with all my training appointments. When it came to my final exam stage 3 the support and encouragement was overwhelming and I passed with a 94% result which I would never have received without his help. I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to learn how to become a professional Driving Instructor. I owe my future life and New Career to him. Chris I cannot thank you enough but I will Thank you again for everything!"

Clodagh, my driving instructor, played a huge role in helping me pass my driving test. Her teaching style was patient and easy to understand, which made learning to drive less stressful for me. She knew exactly how to explain things so that I could grasp them easily. Clodagh's encouragement and support boosted my confidence behind the wheel, especially during challenging maneuvers. I'm grateful for her expertise and guidance throughout the learning process. If you're looking for a driving instructor who's patient, knowledgeable, and supportive, I highly recommend Clodagh.

My instructor was Damien whom i was referred to be a colleague who was also refferrerd by another colleague and im now reffering him to anyone who wants their drivers licence done proffessionally. For lack of a better way to express it i wouldnt have passed my test without all his teachings he makes driving easy to understand he is calming and encouraging go for Damien

Very happy to say I passed my driving test today after doing lessons with Chris Kennedy! I’ve done lessons with two other instructors before I met Chris and wasn’t able to pass the test before.Chris is by far the best instructor/teacher I’ve worked with. I honestly can’t recommend him enough. From our first lesson until the very last pre-test before my test, he has always put me at ease behind the wheels. His eye for detail is unmatched, he was able to notice every single mistake I made during our lessons and we’d run through them even a 100 times until I got it right. He knows the test routes extremely well and he was able to correct a lot of my bad driving habits, some of them which I never even knew I had before. His knowledge about the test, cars and the way the testers think is incredible. All his tips and guidance was key to passing my test today. He always gives constructive feedback and was my biggest motivator. So huge thanks to Chris, definitely don’t think I would have passed the test without him!Also just want to thank Jackie from NDS as well for organizing all my lessons, even taking into account my hectic work schedule sometimes.

In a last-minute scramble, I turned to National Driving School for a car hire and they managed to get me in for two hours of pretest preparation for me. The insights and tips provided by their experienced instructors proved to be instrumental in boosting my confidence. Having faced the disappointment of failing the driving test three times previously, I was pleasantly surprised by the personalized attention and support I received from them. The team's support and encouragement helped me overcome my previous setbacks. The two hours of pretest preparation were a key factor in my success on the driving test. I genuinely believe that investing in lessons with NDS is a wise decision that can make a big difference. The positive impact of their last-minute assistance and the confidence boost I experienced are a testament to their expertise and commitment to their students' success. A heartfelt thank you to the National Driving School, specifically Kevin and Lukas for their unwavering support!

I passed my driving test yesterday at the first attempt all thanks to the guidance and support of Julia and Chris (Krzys) from National Driving School. I did my 12 EDT lessons with Julia in October, who made the lessons a lot of fun and had so much patience with me. Julia really knew when to push me and had me looking forward to each lesson. Chris (Krzys) then helped me with some pretest lessons and a mock test, and really gave me all the confidence to know I was ready to pass the test before it began. He was there to settle any nerves before the test and was there to celebrate my passing after the test as well. Chris (Krzys) really went above and beyond to help me pass! I couldn’t recommend Julia and Chris (Krzys) enough if you want to learn how to drive!

I just want to thank Chris from the National Driving School as I passed my driving test today! I had done my EDT lessons pre-covid and had got stuck in the long waiting list for Dun Laoghaire. I applied for a cancellation test and Jackie in the National Driving School rearranged some lessons so they could squeeze me in for a refresher lesson. Chris was so helpful and encouraging and I do not think I would have passed the test without this lesson. He was very engaged and sent me links to videos to watch and had a genuine interest in me passing. I am extremely happy and grateful that I have passed. Thank you again.

I had a 2 hour lesson with Clodagh this week and I passed my test today. She was fantastic, she was very informative and gave tips which made everything easier. I learned so much from her in that small amount of time and would not have passed my test without the advice she gave.

I am very delighted to have passed my driving test on my first attempt at Mulhuddart (Maple House), all thanks to my amazing instructor Kevin. I was lucky enough to receive lessons from him, he was always calm, friendly, and available whenever I had doubts. He was the one who asked me to reschedule and select a better time and then made a plan to get this through, he was there on the test day as well and that helped a lot. I would highly recommend Kevin if you are looking for a good instructor and want to pass on your very first attempt.Thanks once again Kevin for all your support and helping me in getting this sooner!

I had done two pretests with Chris from National Driving School and I passed my driving test today. He’s very friendly and encouraging, puts you at ease from the first moment. Also very knowledgeable about the test routes and clearly points out your mistakes and helps you improvise them. He exactly knows what the testers are looking for!! Have already recommended it to one of my friends who has an upcoming test!!

Couldn't recommend more!! I had done 12 lessons with another school in a manual car and decided to switch to an automatic. I did one lesson and one pretest with Stephen in his automatic and I passed!! Extremely friendly and helpful, really concise and clear advice that calmed my nerves, easy to get in touch with and book. If you're looking for your next driving instructor look no further, 10/10 💪💪

Today, I successfully passed my driving test, and I owe it all to the incredible support of Chris (Krzysztof). His guidance significantly boosted my confidence, and his invaluable tips, especially on the challenging reverse around a corner, made a crucial difference. I wholeheartedly recommend Chris; without him, I doubt I would have succeeded.

Had Cein as my instructor for lessons in the Raheny area - couldn't recommend him enough! Well paced lessons, excellent instruction, and more than willing to answer any and all questions put to him, overall making the process very straightforward 🙂

Absolutely delighted to have passed my driving test on my first attempt with an automatic car at Mulhuddart (Maple Close) thanks to my amazing instructor Kevin. I highly recommend Kevin as a driving instructor; he has so much knowledge and is very calm in the car. I learnt so many great tips and tricks that were invaluable on the day of the test. Even if you know how to drive already, you can't go wrong in getting a leson as a refresher. Thanks again Kevin for all your support and opening up a world of freedom for me!
