Barney was the biggest help from my first lesson to my pretest right before my driving test! He was always patient, gave clear instructions and made driving such an enjoyable experience. I couldn’t but recommend him!! Each lesson was practical and he takes the fear away from driving instantly. Thank you so much! Aisling on Trustpilot – 2022.

Bernard was simply wonderful. He helped me throughout the process of me getting my full license. Sat mine once and received my full. From the first day I met him he told me what I needed to pass and would send me away with tips to practice. On the day of the exam we did one more practice and we ironed out any lingering errors etc. I was very pleased with the outcome. Eddy on Trustpilot – 2022.
