    Paul is a master of his trade!
    I'd been learning to drive on & off for years but my fear of being on the road always got the better of me! Then I was lucky enough to meet Paul. From our initial phone call alone, I got the feeling that maybe this time I might actually be able to do this. And now here I am writing this testimonial having just passed my test !! I would have never got this far if it wasn't for Paul.
    It's hard to do Paul the justice he deserves in a few short words & hope you ll find out just how great he is by booking a lesson with him! He doesn't just teach with the aim of passing the test, he instils the importance of safety, good driving skills & altogether giving his pupils the knowledge & tools to enjoy a lifelong skill of driving.
    And to top it all off Paul has a great sense of humour !
    Thank you Paul & see you soon for my motorway lessons !!

    I am proud to say I passed my driving test thanks to Paul, I passed my test with 1 grade.
    Paul was my only ever instructor but it's clear how much he loves his job.
    He is extremely passionate about his job which you can't say about most instructors.
    Paul will get you passed first time round if you listen to him and do what he says.

    Thank you Paul for all of your time and advice that you have given me! (still can't believe i passed) :D

    Paul is a wonderful, enthusiastic, positive instructor with a passion for both driving and teaching. Paul was my first driving instructor. The fact that his site was the first result google threw up for "driving school dublin" speaks for itself; his is the most popular site because he is simply the very best around. Thanks to his expert tutelage I passed my test on my very first attempt just over eight months after my first lesson with him. He'd say himself that he'll "wreck your head" by talking and repeating himself so much. I disagree. His persistence and positive feedback gives you confidence both in yourself and in him. I am absolutely delighted today with my certificate of competency, and with the amount of time as well as money that I saved achieving it thanks to Paul. If you choose to take lessons with Paul - which you totally should, by the way, if that wasn't clear by now - you should just make sure to book several lessons at a time because he has so many (happy) students. The man is very busy, because the man is very, very good. Thanks Paul :)

    I spent many years with countless instructors attempting to learn to drive. I gave up on numerous occasions and never once had the confidence to do my test. I decided to give it one last attempt and thankfully I met Paul. I can honestly say that Paul is the most proficient and knowledgeable instructor I have ever met. He is passionate about his profession and instills great confidence and belief in his students. The difference with Paul is that he genuinely cares and he demonstrates this in the support and encouragement he gives all his pupils. I finally passed my test on Friday 13th - a small part down to me but a huge part down to Paul!

    Passed my driving test on the first go in Raheny thanks to Paul :D Paul also got my brother and sister passed so that's all the children in my house! I would highly recommend him to anyone else! He really knows what hes talking about and he actually cares if you do well unlike other instructors I've heard of! He made sure I was completely ready for the test! I really appreciate all the time he put in and the amount of Saturday classes we ended up doing when I started work! He really puts the time in to get you passed!

    Thanks Paul :)

    Passed my driving test second time round yesterday thanks to Paul. I only failed the first time because of nerves. Started doing things that I never usually do and drove much worse than I was capable of after Pauls excellent instruction. You could'nt ask for a more dedicated instructor than Paul. He's so good at his job because he loves what he does. I got his number from someone who he got passed too. She went to Paul after starting out with a bad instructor. My brother also had a bad instructor and didn't realise it until we got talking and he did'nt know half the stuff I knew from Pauls brilliant lessons. My point being that there are plenty of cowboys out there who will just keep you coming back without teaching what you need to know to pass, just so they can bleed you dry. Paul is NOT one of those guys. He is a 100% honest guy and is the highest level driver/driving instructor you can get. He pays attention to every little detail that you need to know to be a really good driver and makes sure you know them yourself. Because if you're anyting less than really good, you won't pass. Paul is the only way to go if you're looking for lessons. I would'nt look anywhere else and I will most definitely recommend him to anyone I know. Just make sure you listen to what he says and you'll pass. It's that simple.

    Passed my driving test first time and with only a single grade 2 last week. I know for a fact that i could not have managed this without the instruction of Paul. He had the perfect balance of knowledge, patience and encouragement which will lead any person: young or old, beginner or advanced, to a successful driving test. I would thoroughly recommend the IN GEAR driving school to anyone and i have already passed my Brother and one of my friends on.
    Lastly I would like to publicly thank Paul for all the hard work and dedication he input into my lessons, I know i cancelled more than an appropriate amount of times but he was extremely accommodating. For everyone out there it doesn't take more than one test to obtain your driving licence, it just takes hard work and a world class driving instructor e.g. Paul.

    Thank you Paul, for everything and all of the lessons. I passed first time and i only got one grade 2 in my exam mainly because of Paul's expertise as an instructer. He is very passionate about his job and he will get you passed first time trust me. Paul is a very helpful man if you treat him well and don't mess around he will 100% get you passed first time, i helped Paul with one of his exams and he helped me with my exam, he made me look foward to my driving lessons and gave me the motivation not to pick up bad habits and keep the driving right. Thank you so much Paul and I know you will get more first time students passed first go !!!

    Thank you Paul as today I got my Pink licence I Passed!!!

    Paul, your expertise and passion is what makes you totally indifferent to your competitors. Having gone through 5 instructors I was disheartened to even get behind the wheel. Paul got my mum passed and friends passed I knew he was the man for me.

    If you want a yes man then you go to wrong man. He wasn\'t painting a fairy tale he was reality and realistic. He gave praise when it was due and told you to buck up when needed. He approach and teaching although sometimes I wondered had he taking a breath when directing you.

    His approach made you want to achieve. His belief and enthusiasm in his pupils made him unlike others. His dedication to his profession should be awarded. I can\'t thank you enough for getting me through. To me and my family we regard him family and can\'t wait to see other family members succed due to Paul and his work.

    Thank you for everything.!! If I had a choice again for getting lessons and seen the vast amount of instructors that only want to line there pockets. Reading Paul success rate would make me choose him over and over. You are not just a number you are belived in.

    I passed my test today and am SO HAPPY AND RELIEVED! I am so grateful that I got to meet Paul and have him as my driving instructor. He was just what I needed.. strict but fair, calm and patient, and funny too! He explained everything so clearly and made things easy for me to understand. He repeated things over and over so it stuck in my head! Paul wants all his pupils to pass their driving test and he is really passionate about his job. He is a fantastic instructor and I will be passing his number on whenever I know of anybody looking for driving lessons. Thanks for everything Paul x
