Learning with Ian was fantastic! He stepped in at the last minute to help me pass my test and seamlessly adapted when I switched from manual to automatic! He is extremely patient and full of helpful advice, which ensured that I mastered driving skills and rules regardless of gearbox type. Aside from the lessons, Ian provided invaluable guidance and boosted my confidence before the exam. Despite the fact that I only met him for a few hours, I can tell he goes above and beyond for his students. I wholeheartedly recommend Ian to anyone looking for a fabulous driving instructor. He's fantastic at what he does, and I can't thank and recommend him enough.

I was a very nervous driver. I had tried other instructors but they couldn't help me with my nerves. Ian was brilliant! Easy to take direction from, calming and helped rebuild my confidence. As a result I passed first time. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for Automatic driving lessons.

Just passed my test on the first try thanks to Ian!! He’s incredibly thorough, patient, and makes you feel very comfortable throughout the process. So grateful for him and his lessons!

I couldn't recommend Ian as an instructor highly enough. His knowledge of the test routes in Raheny is second to none and he knows exactly what to hone in on to get you ready for the driving test. Ian was very flexible to fit in pretests for me and my work schedule, and in a short space of time had me feeling confident and ready for the test. The information and practice questions on the website are exactly the prep needed for this part of the test. ...If you're sitting your test in an automatic..give Ian a call.

An absolute disappointment. I reached out to their service via their platform and I got redirected to an instructor called Ola - who was nice at the beginning but then started texting in an impolite and inpatient manner. I asked very fair and simple questions which he referred back to “I explained that to you before!” not to mention his awful way of spelling which I normally wouldn’t even point out but he clearly doesn’t pay attention to how he explains things or talks to people. Passive aggressiveness shouldn’t be tolerated in this line of business..

    #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!
