Gillian Nolan - I passed my test!

The best driving school in Leinster! My instructor Joe, he is a brilliant teacher with excellent tips & advice. He's also a bit of craic! I became much more confident and noticeably a better driver within my first 2-3 lessons. The pricing is very reasonable and Joe works with you to best fit your schedule. I wouldn't recommend any other motor school, these guys are by far the best!

Getting yourself prepared for the Test in Abbeyleix

Pretest Driving Lessons Abbeyleix Pretest Driving Lessons Abbeyleix

Preparing to successfully pass the driving test is completely not the same as learning to drive. Well before sitting the driving test you will ideally have the important skills and understanding to drive without having to put your life or the lives of other people at risk. Our Abbeyleix pretest driving lessons are designed to explain to you how to beat the driving test by mastering the conditions you will be placed under.

If the ideas of sitting the driving test are too much to handle then you are not the first person to feel like this. Fear of failing, concern with nerves getting the better of you or just fear of the unknown. Well fear not.

It is normal practice by many driving instructors to keep supplying you with lessons until they 'think' you could pass the test. Often they will send you to complete the test not truly knowing if you will successfully pass or not. This is down to a complete lack of understanding on how the tester perceives and marks you during the driving test. This is not how we do things. All our instructors have been properly trained by ex-testers so they completely understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.

We're not in the business of gambling on your success. Our pretest driving lessons fully simulate the 4 different phases of the test and truly prepares you for the way the tester will talk to you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we present this knowledge and understanding with our students it is like giving them each of the solutions to an exam before they even know the questions. Which is why so many of our pupils pass first time. Meaning less lessons and less expense to you.
