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 Ballacolla

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballacolla Pretest Driving Lessons Ballacolla

Preparing to pass the test is completely different from learning to drive. You should already have the vital driving skills and road safety knowledge in advance of filling out an application for the test. Pretest driver training is about comprehending the test itself and how you can beat it.

If the thoughts of sitting the driving test are too much to handle then you aren't the first to feel like this. We normally fear what we do not understand and the unknown. But with RSA School of Motoring there's no need to be scared.

Most instructors will keep providing you with driving lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. Commonly they will bring you to do the test not truly knowing if you will pass or not. This is down to a complete lack of knowledge on how the driving tester perceives and grades you during the driving test. This is not how we do things. All our driving instructors have been trained by ex-testers so they fully 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 reproduce the Four different stages of the test and truly prepares you for the way the driving tester will communicate with you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we share this knowledge and understanding with our pupils it is like providing them with each of the answers to an examination before they even know the questions. Which is why a great number of our students pass the driving test first time. Beating the driving test fast means you save money.

Just passed my test this morning all thanks to the help from amazing instructor! I had taken the test twice over the last few years and failed and wasn't thrilled about trying it a 3rd time because of the previous results, but got recommended to by a friend so after only 3 hours in total of pre tests I passed, delighted! knows what he is talking about and guides you through the testing routes very calmly,professionally and puts you at ease with the overall test and what is expected of you. I can't recommend him enough as an instructor and I wouldn't have passed without him. Thanks a mill :)
