    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

    I passed my driving test today-)

    Paul, thank you so much for helping me prepare for my driving test.
    You were the best Driving Instructor I had.
    Thank you for your professionalism, great conversation and patience.
    You are \"two in one\": great instructor and great person...
    You gave me the confidence, coaching me in everything that I needed to correct in order to pass. I would never pass my driving test without you. I would recommend you to anyone I know doing their test.

    Anyone thinking of booking lessons or anyone who has their test coming up should book a lesson with Paul!

    Thank you so much

    If you\'re on this website, unsure which driving instructor to use, you need not look any further. I can say with hand on heart, that no other driving instructor is going to compare to Paul; and if you\'ve already used other instructors, get ready to be shocked by the difference (I had a free lesson with another guy but didn\'t see the point in using it after getting into the car with Paul). I would not have passed my test today if Paul had not been recommended to me. All you have to do is listen to what he says and you\'re guaranteed to become a great driver. He is a credit to his profession. The man should quite frankly get a medal. Even if you know some-one that has already passed their test, but could do with some confidence, you should give him a call. I will forever be grateful, and I will never stop recommending this man to any-one who\'ll listen. Thanks so much Paul x

    Passed my driving test today first time round and can honestly say it is all thanks to Paul! I was referred to him by my sister (who had 2 driving instructors before Paul and only had to get 3 lessons with Paul then and he had her passed, she said if it wasn\'t for him she would have failed for a third time). On every lesson he told me about the bad habits which many pick up and I assure you if you listen, you will not pick them up with his teaching. His passion, patience and love for his job makes such a difference when your learning, it really makes you love the lessons and not fear them. I can genuinely agree when people say he is the best of the best and I cannot recommend him enough!!! Thanks a mill Paul :)

    I passed my driving test on my first attempt this morning in Raheny. I did all my lessons with Paul. His approach was very focused on bringing my abilities in line with the test standard. He never gave me a chance to adopt any bad habits and gave me thew confidence to go into the test without nerves. he knew everything about the test area, from potential routes the examiner would take, to where a skill would be examined. Thanks Paul.
