Clontarf Driving Academy



Passed 1st Time

December 5th, 2017

Couldn't recommend Karl more. I put off learning to drive for too long and never thought I'd actually be able to drive a car. Karl is really encouraging and puts you at ease. Despite working full time, Karl was able to suit my schedule. I passed on my first test and absolutely credit this to having a pretest with Karl the morning of my test.

I rang Karl after failing my test with aviva and within 3 weeks I passed my test thanks to 3 pretests with Karl. He was always clear and knew exactly what was needed for the test. On the day of my test I was nervous and Karl settled me right down and made me feel confident so that I passed my test comfortably.

Karl's in charge

Karl was a great instructor me. I have been driving for 18 years in the states so I thought this was going to be a big joke but I was sorely mistaken. I had a lot to learn and a lot I did learn. I would highly recommend his service to any and everyone looking to pass their driving lesson!

When I first started my lessons with Karl I could barely start the car and was so panicked about everything! Karl was so good at putting me at ease and every week I could see myself improving rapidly! I now feel, after my 12 lessons, that I'm a lot more confident and competent when it comes to driving! Karl is very dependable and gives 100% in each lesson! I couldn't recommend his lessons more!

I was an extremely nervous beginner and Karl helped me to relax and become confident and calm behind the wheel. Karl was always encouraging and friendly. Would recommend to any complete beginner looking to learn.

Karl is a great instructor, he was very patient and makes you feel very much at ease. If you're lacking the motivation to drive Karl will definitely put some motivation into you. Very passionate and really wants his students to do well. Would highly recommend.
