    A big thank you to Damien. Without the lessons and tips, i didn't have a chance of passing my driving test. I passed on my first try. This is testament to the great lessons Damian provides.

    I would also like to thank Eric who brought me on my pre test the morning of my exam and really helped with the verbal exam and some great tips for the test aswel. Highly recommend.

    Paul Murphy of In Gear is the best driving instructor I have ever had.

    And I have had many, all here in Dublin.

    In fact having lived abroad for over twenty years and having held a US drivers license, driven trucks, vans and cars in New York City and surrounding states, I had picked up a pile of bad habits. And as almost cars, trucks and vans in the US are automatic, gears, clutch and other areas needed a lot of instruction.

    In Gear’s Paul gave me seven hours of lessons over a four week period. The test date was a Wednesday in October 2019 and my first lesson with Paul was a Tuesday in September 2019.

    Paul understood exactly what the issue was: in my case, years of bad habits from driving in New York City, a lack of practice using the clutch and more importantly a New Yorker attitude that needed to be reigned in before the test.

    Paul helped me to be more relaxed during each lesson and reiterated the important observational and maneuvering skills needed to pass the test. He is patient, highly skilled and understands that one size does not fit all.

    Listen to everything he says, implement what he says as you drive and the test will be passed.

    I would highly recommend Paul and In Gear for any driving students, young and inexperienced or older with decades of experience.

    But I would especially recommend In Gear and Paul to those drivers who may have driven outside Ireland, those drivers who have years of experience but may have developed bad driving habits over the years.

    Thanks again Paul and In Gear and good luck with all your students, past and present!

    Passed my test back in April with the help of Ingear. I found Ed to be a great instructor who explains things clearly and encourages you to ask questions. I probably had 20+ lessons with Ingear and never had any issues. Overall I found it to be the best driving school out of the 5 I've taken lessons with. Thanks for the help Ingear and to Ed in particular 👍

    Just under a year after starting lessons with Paul, today I passed my test! Having been with two driving schools, and having failed my test once, I was apprehensive to get back in the car. However, his passion for teaching is incomparable to anyone I've ever met and his eagerness to get his students passed is so heartening. His stories will have you in hysterics and he actually makes learning to drive fun instead of daunting, like some other instructors. Honestly could not have done it without him & In Gear.

    I took lessons from Damien in Raheny & couldn’t recommend him enough! Had to move from a past instructor and he helped settle my nerves and pass my test with great help. He made every lesson enjoyable, had great patience and really helped me be ready for my test and to pass with confidence. I would 100% recommend Damien if you’re looking to pass your test!

    I passed my driving test first time in the finglas test centre. I couldn’t have done it without the amazing work put in by Ingear and especially my instructor Paul. I can nearly guarantee you will never find anyone as enthusiastic about their job as Paul. You can always count on Ingear and I couldn’t recommend them enough to take lessons with.

    I took driving lessons with Damien in raheny, have to say he was an amazing instructor, Really professional no time wasting nonsense like many other instructors,I had no hope of passing the test and was short of confidence but only 4 lessons with him really made the difference. I know it because I had lessons with 2 different instructors before, damien worked on my mistakes with a lot of patience. I am really glad that I found Damien I passed the test first time

    Passed my test first time today in finglas thanks to Paul from InGear Driving School. He is easily one of the best instructors in the country and is very passionate about his job. He makes each lesson enjoyable and was constantly learning in each one. Can’t thank Paul enough for the effort he’s put into me. Will definitely be recommending In Gear to friends!

    I passed my driving test today all thanks to Paul Murphy from ingear. I had previously done lessons with another instructor and had a very bad experience. I did another 12 lessons with Paul and from the very first one the difference in the lessons was unbelievable. Paul is a brilliant instructor and is so passionate about what he does. He built up my confidence and helped me get rid of the bad habits I had. He had me laughing throughout the lessons and I thoroughly enjoyed myself while still learning how to drive properly. I would 100% recommend Paul to anyone wanting to pass their driving test.
