I had a great experience doing refresher classes with Ian Daly. He was great, patient and really helpful. He is extremely knowledgeable and takes his time to explain and elaborate everything in details. I really enjoyed the experience and I would highly recommend him.

Ian is very patient, clear and after each lesson I feel more confident in my driving abilities. It’s great to have an instructor who specialises in automatic. Highly recommend!

Having just passed my test it's amazing to think back at how long I put off learning to drive and how nervous I was to start, now I really enjoy driving and so glad to have the freedom. Ian was really calm, clear and always accommodating. His support doesn't end at the end of the lesson; he's always helpful and quick to reply to random questions sent his way, even the night before the test. Would definitely recommend!

Ian is excellent instructor, every lesson took from him is well worth it. He is patient, detailed and encouraging. He works hard to improve weak points of driver, calmly share the feedback and help to prepare the driver upto test level and pass the exam. His KIA car is also well maintained.

    #1 Automatic Driving School Dublin

    Are you ready to Drive?

    Our Cars are so much easier to drive, more relaxing and are a lot less of a headache. There isn’t anything to think about such as cluch or gearstick so you will reach the required “test standard” much sooner.

    1. You’ve failed your driving test in a manual car on more than one occasion but you need your full driving licence to get around for work, college or your plan drive in another country i.e USA.
    2. There is no clutch so no need to worry about cutting out or “stalling the engine”
    3. No worries about rolling back on a hill or over-revving the engine.
    4. The gears are automatic so no need to worry about what gear to use.
    5. You won’t hold up traffic when moving off from traffic lights once you accelerate enough.
    6. More concentration on the road ahead: react to possible hazards (expect the enexpected) observation turning left and right, road position, use of mirrors, speed/progress for the road conditions and steering.
    7. Because there is no clutch you predominantly will only use your right foot so you can rest your left foot (recommended)
    8. You can drive the car perfectly with your right foot if your left foot is injured unlike a manual car. I once was in a taxi where the taxi driver only had 1 leg!
