Brilliant Instructor!

I did pretest lessons with Karl recently and after doing lessons with a different instructor and practising by myself for the year he really got me up to test standard which thankfully resulted in me passing!!

Great Instructor, Highly Recommend

May 6th, 2016

Having gone from complete novice, to nervous driver to passing my test first time all in the space of 9 months, I cannot recommend Karl highly enough. His easy going and relaxed atmosphere made the lessons enjoyable and a great way of learning. He’s very accommodating and helpful with times and getting lessons fit in. Thanks Karl :D

I passed my test first time in the Raheny test centre. This was thanks to Karl who showed genuine interest in my learning and provided expert guidance throughout my learning. He was always happy to provide advide via text if I had any questions or queires. I couldn't recommend a better instructor who strives to improve and have you pass your driving test. Best of luck and thanks again!

I would highly recommend Karl for any first time driver or anyone looking to pass the driving test. His knowledge is second to none and he knows the test routes inside out. Karl gave me every little detail to enable me to pass the driving test and his friendly nature puts you at ease from the beginning and gives you the confidence to pass.

Couldn't recommend a better instructor! He prepared me well for my test in Raheny and helped me enjoy driving rather than just focusing on the test :).

Not only is Karl a great instructor he's a lovely guy too! After doing my lessons with another instructor and still not making progress I gave Karl a call and four lessons later I passed my test! Would highly recommend him to everybody!

Super highly recommended

Karl is a great instructor; completed all lessons, pretests and passed my test within 3/4 months of starting with him, and passed first time round. He's also great craic while on the lessons, which kept me relaxed while out on the roads, especially for the first few lessons which could be very unnerving! Highly recommend!
