Customer Reviews

driving instructor training

I’ve been driving locally for a number of years, and stayed  within my comfort zone as I was a nervous driver. I had failed my test twice and really needed to ensure that I passed third time around. I found Colm’s website and from the amazing reviews from past students I thought this is exactly what I need. Colm is an excellent and extremely professional instructor and explained things that I’d never been told with other instructors in a very easy to understand way. I’m delighted to say that I did pass third time and have Colm to thank for my success. I would highly recommend Colm to everyone.

Colm Branigan is unquestionably a superb driving instructor. All of his lessons including the pretest lessons were extremely comprehensive. They allowed me to develop the skills needed to gain my full licence and become a safe driver. Colm is a very professional, patient and friendly person. He ensured any mistakes made during the lessons were corrected and explained accordingly. I would undoubtedly recommend Colm Branigan for driving lessons to become a safe and confident driver. Thanks again for all your help Colm, I could not have passed without your lessons, support and encouragement.

I was very happy with my driving lessons from Colm. He is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He gave lots of positive feedback in lessons as well as advice on how to improve. He always finished lessons with a reflection on the important points covered which helped to consolidate the new teaching points. His pretests were very useful. I would highly recommend him.

I recently booked a course of pretests with Colm before sitting my test in Raheny. He was very professional in his approach. His pointers and knowledge were invaluable. He has the ability to adjust to each and any persons style of driving. He then offers bespoke advice to them; exactly what they need to work on to pass the test. This was in my opinion one of the main reasons why I passed my test this time round. I can’t thank Colm enough. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to boost their chances of passing the driving test.
