I highly recommend Karl Nolan as a driving Instructor.Hes very calm and relaxed and encouraging. I am not a nervous driver but found a few lessons with him and some key tips before my test made all the difference in passing.

Driving Lessons

I would recommend Karl to everyone. His consistency in his teaching methods along with his patience and encouraging attitude really helped with the learning process. He had confidence in me with every lesson and this grew my confidence further and enabled me to improve my driving as time went on. Excellent instruction. Highly Recommended!

I did a few pretests with Karl and managed to pass my test first time. He was very patient and encouraging, would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to pass their test. Thanks Karl!

I had Karl for my first (very nervous) lesson, right up to having pretests before my driving test and passed first time in Raheny. Karl is extremely patient and encouraging and would recommend him to any learner driver or someone looking to pass their test.

Passed first time!

I was an extremely nervous driver to start off with, but Karl is an excellent instructor and ensured I passed first time!

I came to Karl after previously failing my driving test. Thanks to Karl's thorough guidance and tuition we had fixed any lingering bad habits and I was fully prepared to sit my driving test. The results spoke for themselves as I finally got my full license.I couldn't advise anyone seeking to pass their driving test more to go and give Karl a call.

I would definitely recommend Karl Nolan as a driving instructor. I passed the second time I did the driving test with only three lessons from Karl, the three previous days before the test. He gets to the point and tells you what you're doing wrong and how to fix it. He's encouraging and an expert in his field. I'd recommend him to anyone. Michael McNamara

Highly recommend Clontarf Driving Academy for driving lessons for learners or nervous drivers! Karl was so calm and professional throughout all my lessons and gave me great confidence! The lessons leading up to my test were amazing and he brought through each step of the driving test so when it came to taking it there were no nasty surprises and I passed with flying colours! Thanks a million Karl!

I would highly recommend Karl to anyone looking for lessons or pre-tests. Before I started pre-tests with him I had a lot of bad habits and after a couple they were gone. Very patient and professional. No bad words to say :) Melissa.

Learning to drive and pass the test was one of the most difficult things I have ever done. Once I had Karl as an instructor it became a lot easier! Not only was Karl extremely professional and helpful but his extensive knowledge of the area, the routes and the driving test procedures make him a grade above the rest. I was a bag of nerves on the day of my test and Karl knew exactly how to calm me d

Clontarf Driving Academy Review

May 9th, 2013

I used Karl and the Clontraf Driving Academy for a 10 lesson plan which brought me from a completely inexperienced to a fully licensed driver within 6 months. Throughout the lessons I always found Karl very informative, patient and knowledgeable. Karl developed a tailored plan and adapted each lesson to deal with issues which arouse as my driving skills developed. What’s more I always found Karl

I was doing lessons for a while with another driving instructor but felt I wasn't being taught to test standard. After a few lessons with Karl I was driving very confidently and passed my test first time round. Cheers again Karl!

I wasn't a complete beginner when I came to Clontarf Driving Academy, but it was a very long time since I had driven on the left side of the road and with a clutch! Karl was a great instructor: always made me feel at ease and was full of patience, knowledge and encouragement. I found that his lessons really provided a good insight into what makes a good driver on Irish roads. I did lessons and a p
