WHY WE SAY WE ARE THE Preferred DRIVING SCHOOL IN Castletownshend

Everybody has bad habits and there is no such thing as a perfect driver. We want you to feel like you have made great progress after each lesson, both in practice and understanding which is why our ADI's are trained to home in on your weakest areas ensuring time isn't wasted on areas of your driving that are fine.

Taking one or two driving lessons a week in Castletownshend is often not enough for some students. Wouldn't it be great if you had an instructor with you 24/7? Unfortunately that's not possible which is why we developed our own support and training material for you to study between your lessons, giving you more bang for your buck.

When it comes to value no other driving school in Castletownshend can offer what we do to our pupils. We have seen pupils learn 3-4 times faster with our home study training. This material helps you grasp and understand those tricky areas of driving like roundabouts, night driving and your driving test maneuvers.

A Driving School in Castletownshend you can rely on

When we were in school we all had our favorite teachers, the ones that engaged us and made learning fun. And then we had the opposite, those teachers that had no place in the classroom. Not all teachers are made equal and that is certainly no less real with approved driving instructors. It is easy to Google 'Driving Lessons Castletownshend' and find driving instructors near you but which can you trust to best teach you.

You need a driving school with a reputation built on experience and student success. A driving school that gets pupils to pass the driving test.

The Driving Test: Essential preparation

Pretest Driving Lessons Castletownshend Pretest Driving Lessons Castletownshend

The art of driving safely and the art of passing the test should not be confused as the same. You should already have the vital driving skills and road safety knowledge before applying for the test. Our Castletownshend pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the situations you will be placed under.

If the thoughts of sitting the driving test are overwhelming you then you are not the first to feel like this. We naturally fear what we don't understand and the unknown. But with RSA School of Motoring you don't have to be afraid.

Our tried and tested pretest training packages have been developed to specifically help you overcome your nerves and come out with a deep understanding on what will happen on test day.

We're not in the business of gambling on your success. We simulate for you all 4 stages of the test, teach you all the test routes and focus on the areas of your driving that are most likely to get you the most marks or fail you.

Using this method we get our student past the test in half the time it takes other driving school. That means less lessons and less expense to you.
