Automatic Driving Lessons Dublin

We have successfully been training pupils in our Automatic vehicles for many years now. It has always been our school policy to provide the highest standards of informative driving instructions to our students.

Automatic driving lessons are a little different; however, we take you through the EDT programme and Pretest packages with ease.

There is no doubt that we are rewarded as the leading training centre with the obvious choice when it comes to automatic driving lessons in Dublin.

Teaching Safer and Better Learners

Here at National Driving School we are committed to producing better, safer and law-abiding drivers. We emphasise the importance of driving and road safety to make our roads safer for everyone.

Automatic Gears Vs Manual Gears

There can be several reasons to shift from a manual car to the automatic one. But we want to clear the aspects and differences that you will observe in both the types to choose when to shift to the automated cars after comparing both.

  • Starting a car, steering it on turns and stopping it is very easy, making it comfortable for everyone to drive. Along with this, the break has to be applied every time you want to slow down and stop the car as there is no clutch. It only has two paddles, one for the accelerator and another to apply the brake. So, you can drive on one foot only. In manual cars, a clutch is necessary to operate the vehicle and to control its speed.
  • We offer the best 12 EDT training lessons and instructions in the most effective way.
  • If you want to keep your hands on the steering wheel only all the time, then automatic cars are the obvious choice because it is not possible in manual cars due to the frequent use of clutches.
  • If you don’t have much experience on trips like in hilly areas or the bumpy ones, then automatic cars will help you navigate the site.
  • In the traffic areas, starting the car, continuously accelerating and decelerating and stopping is a hectic process in manual cars, but automatic cars make it smooth.
  • Also, it is convenient for old and disabled people to drive independently and without any sponsor all the time.

Feeling nervous and want to switch to automatic cars?

If you think you want to get those benefits mentioned above, we have the best instructors for the learners. You can enrol for the driving lessons for automatic driving and get the 12 EDT automatic driving lessons after getting the learning permit.

Point to note here that the driving license for the automatic car drivers comes with some restrictions as the driving license and test for the manual and automatic drivers are different. If you want to drive manual cars, you need to give a separate trial.

EDT Automatic driving lessons Dublin

We deliver the complete EDT Programmes 1-12 in our Automatic driving lessons. We can act as your sponsor if you didn’t have one, so there is no need to worry about that.

After completing 12 Lessons, we will assist you in progressing forward to apply for your full driving test after going through the pretest, which will prepare you thoroughly and polish your skills.

Huge thank you to Peter for helping me pass on my first attempt in Tallaght today. I have no prior driving experience and Peter has been there from the very beginning. I finished all the lessons with him last year and since then I never really practiced while waiting for an invitation (which was about 8 months). I would say I lost all confidence but I just did a refresher session last week and a mock test an hour prior to my actual driving test. Best decision ever. I honestly thought I wouldn't pass but I just tried to focus on the driving and kept everything he taught in my mind. He not only trained me about the rules of the road this whole time but he also boosted my confidence right before the test. I had the best driving instructor!

Couldn’t recommend the National Driving School and Jay Hickey enough, he has the patience of a saint, thought me a few tips and tricks and most importantly how to use my mirrors and get rid of a few bad habits. I wouldn’t have passed my test first time without them. Thank you so much!

Did my 12 edt lessons with Jay Hickey, I would one of the best instructors out there, could have a fun chat or some very serious and helpful lessons. He wouldn’t care if you asked him any questions and there are no stupid questions in his eyes. With the time I’ve spent with him you can see how passionate he was with teaching and not like some instructors who are just doing it for the money and to get it over and done with, if I had to do another few edt or protests I would definitely go to him again 👌

I passed my test in my first attempt! And it’s all because of Keith. I had been driving for 10+ years in my country but coming here and attending his classes made me realise my understanding of the situation whilst driving was radically insufficient. Keith helped me from scratch, improved my skill step by step. He was patient and was nitpicking every mistake with a smile. And it was his voice in my mind during the test that helped me pass with minor issues. I very highly recommend him. Thank you Kieth and NDS!

I had Chris as my driving instructor and he couldn’t have been better. I only needed the 12 hours of lessons since they were so valuable. He was very helpful and informative, really knows his stuff which meant I passed first time. He was always very calm and collected which helped my nerves a lot. Highly recommend this driving school I would not go anywhere else

My name is Zhicheng. I wanted to share some feedback about my recent driving lessons with Fergal O’Neil During the first two sessions (Mar 29 11am-1pm), Fergal was quite enthusiastic, which was great. However, in the last two lessons(April 5 10am-12pm), he arrived late by 10 minutes and then had to stop to refill the gas, which ate into our lesson time. By the time we actually started, we were already 15 minutes behind schedule, and he wrapped up the class 10 minutes early, leaving me with only 1 hour and 35 minutes of actual teaching time instead of the scheduled 2 hours.Additionally, it wasn't until the end of the last session that Fergal mentioned that the two lessons we had taken that day were not EDT lessons but rather practice sessions. As someone with no prior driving experience, I understand the need for practice, but I would have appreciated knowing this beforehand.

I had a pre-test lesson with Chris the day before my test. Despite driving for a number of years, I was quite nervous and lacking confidence. Chris was able to help me with the nerves and identified some areas that I needed to work on. I passed the test - I owe a lot to Chris for his advice and encouragement. I would highly recommend the National Driving School for anyone with an upcoming test, starting off, or like me someone who came back to driving after a long period.

I had Kevin as my instructor and I passed my driving exam at Finglas in 1st attempt. He is extremely empathatic person and will help you learn all the rules with utmost kindness. If you're an anxious person like me and you need someone to calm your nerves, he will do just that! He provided me with answers to all my questions on WhatsApp promptly. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor/mentor. Thank you for everything Kevin. 🙂

Follwed one of these cars from Kilkenny to Gowran - Would be terrified if my teen was being taught by this driver! Ford Fiesta (171 LD 205) who was busy driving and looking at/fiddling with centre console 99% of the journey. He was going 60km in an 80km zone, hugging the centre line and crossing it then hugging the hedge berm. I tooted to alert the driver of his weaving in L lane - made no difference! BE WARNED!

Just passed my driving test with the help of the fantastic Chris! I've had a lot of driving instructors in the past but Chris was the best of them all. I couldn't have passed my test without him and I got very few grades in my test thanks to him. He has a great attitude and really simplifies everything. Past instructors had really overcomplicated what you get marked on, whereas Chris puts you at ease and gets you super confident for the test. I would highly recommend anyone looking to start their lessons to book in with the National Driving School!

I opted to go for National Driving School based on the reviews and I made the right choice. I was very fortunate to have Thiago and Thami as my instructors. They were very kind, friendly, patient, proactive, and motivating throughout the lessons and pretest. The entire experience from booking and rescheduling sessions, sharing materials, and building the rapport was very seamless. Both their cars were in top notch condition too.They kept reassuring me that I'm a good driver which helped me boost my confidence. I wouldn't have been at ease and comfortable at taking the test if it weren't for them. Thank you, Thaigo and Thami for the learning and support. You both are amazing!

I did my EDT lessons with Lukas and a pretest with Jay in Tallaght and I cannot recommend these two intructors enough. Both instructors were friendly and made it a very relaxed atmosphere for the lessons. Lukas gave very good pointers when learning to drive, while Jay gave an amazing assessment on my driving in preparation for the test. This allowed me to pass on my first time thanks to their incredible help. Highly recommend NDS.

Just finished up my lessons with Ken and the lessons were very comfortable and informative. He would always ask if I was okay while driving and whenever I would go on lessons with him they would fly by because that's how much I was enjoying them. He taught me everything I need to know and was very patient throughout all twelve lessons and never failed to correct and uplift me on my faults and reward and gass me up whenever I did things right. Just overall a great instructor and am glad to have gotten a good price also. Would definitely recommend!

Today I just passed my driving test first try in a manual car. I am super happy, and all of this wouldn't be possible without Kamil and National Driving School. Kamil was very kind and knew excatly what he was doing. 10/10 instructor 🔥. Until I met Kamil, I never drove a manual car ever, since at home we only have electric cars. We had 2 pre tests the day before the tests, which was a full 6 months from the last time I drove his manual car. Kamil's gave me some tricks and tips that helped me with my mistakes before the test. I strongly recommend National Driving School and Kamil for your lessons, because he knows excatly how to help learner drivers pass first time.

5/5 for Trevor! I went from being an unconfident driver, and feeling like I'd never get there..To not only passing my test first go, but passing it with no marks at all! A testament to my wonderful instructor who I couldn't recommend more. I started out my driving journey in manual but it wasn't for me. When I made the switch to automatic, I moved to NDS, and I'm so glad I did. With the steady encouragement and clear instructions at every step, I now have my full license on route.

I emailed the National Driving School back in March looking for an instructor to help me refine my driving after having failed previously with different instructors. Julia messaged me and was able to take me in for multiple 2 hour sessions over the last 2 months in Naas. She was extremely helpful and observant, she spotted bad habits I had gathered and was able to correct them. She is also very accommodating, changing her schedule to fit mine whenever it was needed. I would highly recommend her as an instructor!Just before the day of the test, unfortunately Julia's car became unavailable due to a mechanical issue but she made sure to help organise another instructor with a car I could use as well as a pre test lesson so I was comfortable in the car.For that pre test and the test itself I used Clodagh's car. Again, similar to Julia; Clodagh was exceptionally accomadating. She drove out from Tallaght to meet me before hand for a lesson so I could feel comfortable and she was very reassuring before the test. Most of my nerves were held at bay thanks to her guidance before hand.Thanks a million to both Julia and Clodagh for there help, I wouldn't have been able to pass without their effort and support. I would highly recommend the National Driving School and specifically Julia and Clodagh for anyone looking to get through their driving test. Delighted with the results!

I recently took my pretest with Suzanne Whelan from the National Driving School. She identified two mistakes I was making with my gear and braking techniques. Thanks to her recommendations and guidance, I was able to correct those mistakes within a week. Today, I cleared my driving test at the Tallaght center and I'm extremely pleased with the results. I received three grade 2 for observation and progress, and only a few grade 1. I highly recommend the National Driving School and especially Suzanne as she is an excellent instructor who can identify mistakes and guide you accordingly to help you clear your exam.

After failing my driving test and feeling discouraged for a year, I finally passed thanks to Cien at National Driving School! I tried to sit the test once before starting my lessons with Cien. Cien was amazing - he helped me overcome my fear of driving again and made me a much more confident driver, even though I already had over 10 years of experience in another country. His teaching style was clear and encouraging, and he made learning to drive enjoyable. I highly recommend Cien to anyone looking for a patient and supportive instructor!

Did my 12 classes with Joshy in Dun Laoghaire. He is such an easy instructor to work with loved every session with him. I probably wasn’t the easiest student to deal with but him not loosing his patience really helped me gain confidence.I ended up booking my test at the last minute in Tallaght. Had no experience with the roads or never even been there. Contacted Jay Hickey whos an instructor here based in Tallaght (highly recommended by Joshy). He did a pre test with me an hour and half before the actual test. With in 40 mins I knew all the tips and tricks around Tallaght. And in the next 2 hours I had my test results and I had passed. It was shocking and unbelievableThanks to Joshy and Jay🙏🙏🙏

Can't recommend Dave and NDS enough. Dave builds your confidence not just for the test but general driving. He cuts out all the faff you will have been told elsewhere about driving and fine tunes your skills for the test day and beyond. The additional support materials NDS provides really cuts to what you need to do and know to be a really good and safe driver.

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.

I took lessons with Trevor. Who is super friendly, has perfect information, and is a good way to explain it at the same time. With all of his experience, I passed my test in one go.

I took pretest classes with Chris at National Driving School and passed my test at the Dun Laoghaire test centre! Chris is the best instructor, very patient and gives clear guidance. He took a whole lot of stress off me up straight up until the test. I would highly recommend Chris and NDS for your classes.

I recently passed my test and had completed my EDT's and pre test with Damien at Tallaght. He is a fantastic instructor and takes you on the roads right from the beginning. He never loses his patience and makes sure your mistakes are worked upon. Highly recommend him in case you are learning / living around Tallaght.

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.

Chris was my trainer and he did his best to help me to pass my driving test by rectifying my mistakes.I wanted to take the pretest before my test so he scheduled it at 6:30am which was really helpful for me.

I passed my test on the first go! And all thanks goes to the wonderful teacher, Suzanne. I did pre tests with Suzanne and she was absolutely excellent. She brought me on many routes and mostly tackled the hard ones with me. All the routes she brought me on came up. So informative and supportive and provided many great tips. Could not recommend Suzanne enough, a super helpful teacher and kind person.National Driving School also provided me with a car to do my test with on short notice.Thanks Suzanne!!!!

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.

Today I passed my driving test at Navan test centre. Many thanks to Barney from National Driving School. His way of explaining things is great. Mainly, he always gives a logical reason why one should do the things as recommended, and how that makes you a safer driver.Highly recommend Barney, if anyone is looking for EDT or Pretest lessons. Safe driving.

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!!

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.
