Mock Test Driving Lessons

Passing your driving test couldn’t be any easier with our mock test lessons.

Mock Test Dublin

The difference between Pretest Lessons and Mock Test Lessons

A mock test is an exact demonstration of what will happen on the actual test itself. The theory questions beforehand, under the bonnet checks, secondary control demonstration and indeed the drive itself, all the points will be put before you.

We speak the commands exactly as you will be asked during the test and we will bring you on the same routes so you can get familiar with the manoeuvre points.

The silence and no talking is what makes people most nervous but you need to prepare for the situation so that you can get relaxed at that time and give your best.

If you want your driving test to be passed in the very first time, you have got to show the tester that your driving is in line with how they believe it should be and you are able to drive independently.

If you have been driving for years and you are planning to just take the mock test before the driving test then it might not work for you as you think because you need to learn about the specific areas which you have to practise to fine tune your skills and understand which wrong moves can count faults for you and the important observations to note while driving that you need to take care.

So, it is advised that you go through all the lessons and pretests to revise everything theoretically and practically and then appear for the mock test.

Pretest Preparation to Pass Your Driving Test

Timing of your lessons is the key

Our mock tests are designed 1 to 2 weeks prior to sitting the actual test so that we assess your skill level on time and advise you on what we evaluate. We will tell you what’s needed to be improved and then make you practise that harder.

Pupils who come to us for the first time, do a lot of things in the wrong way and don’t know how to drive as per test standards. It’s our job to ensure that you know exactly what it is the tester wants to see and all the skills are polished to the optimum level.

Pretest Preparation to Pass Your Driving Test
What Happens on Your Pretest Driving Lessons

What Happens with your Instructor on the Pretest

You need to inform your instructor of your driving test date and/or to the sponsor who is going to train you on the pretest training also.

It is advisable to start your pretest after you complete the 12 EDT lessons with our driving instructor.

This gives more time to test yourself and an enhanced evaluation from our instructor which will solve your shortcomings in a limited time and to work on the areas which need more practice.

Experience and Test Route Knowledge

We have been around the driving test routes for 30 years now so we know exactly where you will be taken for your manoeuvre points and to test you. The time period of your test will be 40 minutes and you have to drive approximately 8 kms through different routes and under various conditions. Skills on which your driving will be tested.

  • Knowledge of Rules of the Road by asking questions (including identifying road signs)
  • Demonstrating hand signals
  • Reversing around a corner
  • A turnabout in the road
  • A hill start
  • The list of situations under which you will be tested
  • Moving off
  • Driving in traffic
  • Stopping
  • Reversing round a corner
  • Starting on a hill
  • Road positioning
  • Anticipation and observation
  • Turning about to face in the opposite direction
  • Parking
  • Overtaking and passing
  • Use of mirrors and signals
  • Speed
  • Compliance with traffic lights, road signs and markings
  • Use of vehicle controls – accelerator, clutch, gears, breaks and steering
  • Use of secondary controls – wipers, demisters, lights etc.

Our testers during the mock test will give you a full assessment on the basis of the above points so that you are aware of all the standards that you need to maintain during the test.

Prepare your mock test with National Driving School that has the 97% pass rate, the highest in Dublin. So join our school and get the right guidance for your test, get the most trusted driving lessons in Dublin, prepare with our pretests and mock tests and pass your driving test in one go.

Test Day Necessary Details

Other things you should keep in your mind before the test are:

Do your diligent study

There is probably no better way to gain confidence for the test other than taking your time to study adequately. Even before you make arrangements to schedule your rest, you should have obtained the official revision for detailed study. The Official Driver Theory Test Revision Material is readily available in print and electronic formats.

Have your ID

You don’t want to get disqualified on the test day for not having the appropriate ID so make it ready prior only. The only ID that is accepted to write a Driver Theory Test is the Public Services Card (PSC). Thus, it is only wise that you get this sorted before you even book an appointment to do the test.

Schedule your appointment

You have revised the study materials and gotten your ID sorted, and you feel confident enough to take the test, the next step on your ladder is to give your test. During the application process, it is important that you make a clear indication of the category of vehicle you intend making use of.

First Lesson

Before your first driving lessons you must have the following in order

So your all geared up for your fist driving lesson with your National driving instructor!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Giving NDLS 5 stars is a no brainer for me, passed my test on my first attempt thanks to Chris.Chris has the perfect no-nonsense attitude to drill the little details into your head, he’s friendly and calm and knows exactly how the driving test works. He sent me great resources in advance of the test and generally made me feel very prepared for what’s usually a scary process.Great prices, great service, great company.Thank you Chris!

Big thanks to Clodagh from the National Driving School Tallaght for helping me pass my driving test. She is a great instructor with lots of experience and patience. She also pays great attention to detail and sends driving notes/videos to students, which are really helpful. I would highly recommend her as your instructor.

Had the best pre-test lessons with Kamil. I strongly recommend doing lessons with him. He helped me brush up on all the important skills, provided me with tips, tricks and the confidence I needed to pass my test. Such a great teacher; calm and informative.

Passed my test on the first attempt today in Tallaght. Damien from National Driving School was my instructor, and I couldn’t rate him higher. Felt comfortable and safe from the very first lesson. He’s really knowledgeable and a great teacher- he thought me everything that I needed to pass. Will definitely be passing his details on to any friends or family who are looking to do lessons. Couldn’t recommend him 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

Thanks a lot Chris and Jackie. You are great!!!Just passed my driving test at Dun Laoghaire centre. All credit should be to Chris. His professional coaching with a lot of useful tips helped me a lot to go through this nervous journey. I have no reservation to recommend Chris to anyone who want to get a "N" with confidence. In fact, my wife and two sons are his students now😊

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.

Just passed my test after doing my pretest with Chris at the NDS! I would strongly recommend him as he really helped me iron out the mistakes I was making, and gave me lots of resources that helped me. After the two hours I felt way more confident and at ease with my driving. Truly don’t think I would have passed for a while without his help!

Really good experience doing my pre test in Dun Laoghaire with Chris. He took me through a very similar route that I did on my actual test. He helped fix some of my mistakes and gave me the confidence I needed. Passed my test and couldn’t recommend Chris or NDS enough!

I had my EDT lessons with Julia. From start to finish she was amazing with me, incredibly patient and reassuring. I was very nervous and Julia made me feel relaxed and through each lesson helped me build my confidence. I couldn't recommend Julia enough, she is a credit to the National Driving School.

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.

If you want to get it right 1st time. You Definitely have to go with National driving school. 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!
