Jamie O'Connell - I passed my test!

My driving instructor Colman was fantastic. He was friendly, very patient and gave great clear instruction. I felt well prepared when it came to the test (I passed two weeks back). I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is learning to drive. You won't find a better instructor!

Rachael Buggle - Passed in Wicklow

Rachael Buggle

Rachael Buggle - I passed my test!

I failed my test several times and had lost faith in my ability to actually pass the test. A friend suggested that I contact the School of Motoring for a new instructor. They suggested who specialized in aiding those who had not been successful. After a few lessons I was ready to sit my test again and passed it. I highly recommend this school and this instructor. I don't think I would have passed my test without their help.

Pretest Driving Lessons Portarlington Pretest Driving Lessons Portarlington

The art of driving properly and the art of passing the test should not be confused as the same. Well before sitting the driving test you should hold the important skills and knowledge to drive without putting your life or the lives of others in jeopardy. Our Portarlington pretest driving lessons are constructed to explain to you how to better the test by mastering the conditions you will be placed under.

If you need to prepare for the driving test then your brain is most likely a wash with different emotions. We normally fear what we do not understand and the unknown. Well don't worry.

It is standard procedure by many approved driving instructors to keep supplying you with lessons until they 'think' you could pass the test. Commonly they will send you to perform the test not truly knowing if you will successfully pass or not. And they do this because they do not actually have an understanding of the driving test, how you will be graded or what aspects of your driving will cause you to fail. Fortunately this is not how we operate. Our team of driving instructors have been coached by ex-testers so they completely understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.

We don’t like abandoning things to chance. Our pretest driving lessons fully reproduce the Four different phases of the driving test and thoroughly prepares you for the way the driving tester will speak to you and how they will grade you on the marking sheet.

When we present this knowledge and understanding with our students it is like providing them with all the solutions to an examination before they even know the questions. Which is why a great number of our students pass first time. Passing fast means you save money.
