From Our Website

All our courses can be taken at a time to suit you, either a 1-hour lesson a week or something more intense, it is up to you. Ask Dave your personal instructor for advice on what is the best for you. Take regular lessons, at least one per week. Varying the time of day you take them will also help you gain more experience. 2. Taking your driving lessons in two hour sessions (this is so much more beneficial than taking single hours). 3. Ask your driving instructor lots of questions (they love helping you to answer them).


Choosing a driving school is probably the most important decision that you will have to make and can be a daunting prospect. A check on Google shows over 60 driving schools in the NEWTOWNABBEY area alone so how do you go about identifying the one to suit your needs? By far the best method is a recommendation from a friend or relative who can give first-hand experience. Recommendations supply us with approx 75% of our work, this is something that we are very proud of. We like to think that all our students are happy with the service and tuition that they receive and without their referrals we simply could not survive.


Dave offers you his personal guarantee that you will enjoy your training with us. I simply want you to enjoy your learning experience and drive safely for life. When you enjoy something, you will do it better. The way traffic patterns are growing it is important that you receive the best possible training!


Passing your driving test doesn't have to take forever. Many people take 1 year or more to pass their driving test, but I can help you pass your test sooner!? Here's How. What you want to do is pass your driving test. Notice I didn't say "take driving lessons" - big difference!? You see I will help you to get your driving licence, ?I want to see your driving success.? It all starts off with an assessment lesson, ? to see how quickly you learn, and also to make sure you? have the skills to pass your theory test if you haven't done already.
