After learning to drive for 2 years on and off and several instructors later, I stumbled upon Paul’s number. With just a week before my test I did a 2 hour pretest lesson and learned more with him than I learned in months. Paul couldn’t be clearer and put you at more ease while driving. I couldn’t recommend him more if you want to pass.

I went out for my pretest with Paul and he really gave me the confidence I needed to go and pass the driving test the first time. Without his help and guidance I wouldn’t have been able to pass the test. I would highly recommend Paul as a driving instructor and I am incredibly grateful for the advice he gave me.

Emma Ricken

As someone who did not have much experience driving in Cork, I booked the pretest with Paul to get familiar with the roads and the test. Paul covered everything on the test and gave me valuable tips on how I could improve. I am very grateful for all the guidance and could not recommend him more if your test is coming up. I can say honestly that I would not have passed first time without this pretest.  

Jack Murray

My driving lessons with Paul were excellent. He was so friendly and knows everything there is to know about passing your driving test. He made my driving lessons enjoyable rather than something I dreaded. Paul definitely was the main factor in getting me over the line and passing my driving test.

After failing my test twice I stumbled across Paul’s website and organised a pretest with him before my third test. It was a game changer for me as he looked at my list of faults and was able to guide me on where I was going wrong on my previous tests. He made me feel more confident driving and really calmed my nerves before my test! I wouldn’t have passed my third test without his guidance! I highly recommend Paul as a driving instructor.

Hailey O’Sullivan

My experience with Paul was very pleasant. He was very helpful and patient. He made me feel at ease in the car and as a result I passed my test first time. I would highly recommend Paul as a driving instructor.

Molly Long

My lessons with Paul have absolutely improved every aspect of my driving including many things that I never anticipated would help me drive even more safely on the road. I passed my test the first time.
