I was lucky enough to be recommended to Clontarf Driving Academy by a friend. Upon meeting Karl there was no messing around, he evaluated my driving from start to finish (every single lesson). In doing so he explained what wasn't working and how we could fix it to improve my driving. The energy he put into each lesson is what your looking for in an instructor. He gives you the confidence you need

Huge thank you to Karl, who helped me from day one to drive. I passed my test first time around which I never thought I would do, Karl puts you at ease behind the wheel and gives you a mental focus which means you will find it hard to fail. Couldn't recommend Clontarf Driving Academy enough, if you put your mind to it you can have the pink license in no time. Thank you Karl!

Would absolutely recommend

Was a bit of a nervous driver having failed test previously, so a friend recommend I try a few pre-test lessons with Karl. I contacted him and started lessons a month ago. Now I've the test passed and so much more confidence driving! Karl was so patient and calm, even when I got nervous and worked up, and his constructive feedback and positive attitude made all the difference to my driving. He too

The Best Around

June 4th, 2016

Karl was my second instructor, and I couldn't believe how quickly he got me up to test standard. There's knowing about driving and then there's knowing how to teach it, and he's got both down to a T. Whether you're just starting out or have been driving for awhile, I couldn't recommend a better instructor, not just for passing the the test but for becoming an all round better and more confident dr

Karl is flexible, knowledgeable and a great teacher. He clearly explains all the rules of the road, test routes and maneuvers. He also gave me the encouragement I needed and had me driving far quicker than I though possible. He can tell exactly what you need to work on - his feedback and advice is always spot on. Can't recommend him enough!

Karl is an experienced and knowledgeable instructor, that has the skills and ability to make the daunting experience of learning how to drive a breeze. Felt very comfortable learning how to drive with him and passed my test first time round with his help. Thanks Karl :)

Highly recommend!

Had no experience driving before starting my lessons with Karl and passed first time around thanks to him. Knows the routes inside out and had me extremely prepared going into my test. Felt like I knew every detail of every route by the time I finished my last pretest which made me extremely confident coming up to the test. Also really enjoyed the lessons. Highly recommend Clontarf Driving Academy

Awesome instructor

May 7th, 2016

Karl not only knows everything you need to know about driving, he's also a fantastic teacher. He has clearly worked on the skill of teacher as he had me comfortable behind the wheel from day 1. Karl has a terrific way of teaching you how to drive by not only showing you the rules of the road and how to work everything in the car, but also how to implement it all together and help you gain confiden

I passed my driving test the first time i did it because of Karl. He is thorough and honest in his lessons and encourages you to do your best! He always tries his hardest to fit you in for a lesson even if it cuts into his personal time. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is a fantastic driving intructor and i cant thank him anymore for all his help!
