Carl Noone

Carl Noone had driving lessons in Dublin and passed in Finglas.

I'm so happy I passed my driving test! I highly recommend Cornel from the RSA driving schoolfor anyone taking their test. I arrived home 2 and half weeks ago after being abroad for a year with a letter in my post-box that said I had to take my test on the 21st December! I was gutted having to do it right before Christmas and immediately felt there was absolutely no hope of me passing. I found Cornel's name on the list of approved driving instructors (ADI). I liked the reviews I read so I gave him a call. After a chat over the phone I felt comfortable and confident that he was the right instructor for me. The next day I was having my first lesson! Cornel put me completely at ease and after the first lesson I knew exactly where I was and what I needed to accomplish before the test. He really gave me confidence and simple steps and methods to practice. I walked into the test confident that I had what it took to pass – and I did thanks to Cornel! I'm a teacher myself and can say that Cornel is a gifted teacher who genuinely wants the best for his students. After only 2 weeks and 6 lessons with Cornel, I'm finished and I'll never have to take the test again!

The Parody of Pass Rates

Unlike other driving schools, we’re not going to try and blinker you with pass rates. Any driving school that claims to have a 98% passrate or similar is quite frankly lying and could not prove it. Why lie? Simple really. When your reputation is unknown or in question and you need to get new students in the door, manipulating stats is often the only option you have. The reality is that at least 10% of students fail the test due to unforeseen circumstances or technical issues with vehicles. As I’m sure you can appreciate that means at best only 90% pass rate is achievable and even that is pushing the envelope of possibility. Tread carefully when choosing your driving school and you see claims such as these.

Real reviews from real people

We let the pupils that have successfully passed their test with us do the talking and as you can see, when it comes to maximising your chances of passing the driving test, we are Dublin's number 1 pretest driving school.


Eoin Ó Donnchadha

Eoin Ó Donnchadha had driving lessons in Dublin and passed in raheny.

I had never taken a driving lesson and had my test in a week. To say I was worried is an understatement. I found Cornel from RSA Driving School online and I was so happy I did. Cornel immediately settled my nerves and, after quickly observing my driving, was able to point out the bad habits I had acquired over the years. Cornel helped me correct my faults in just 4 hours of lessons. 2 on days before the test, and 2 hours just before the test. I could see his other students coming out of their tests having passed and it added to my confidence. Cornel even let me use his car on the day of the test when an engine light came on in mine. This saved me a lot of money! He made sure I was comfortable driving in his car and I am sure I wouldn't have passed without his help. I would recommend Cornel to anybody before their test. Thanks a million Cornel!
