    I wonder if anyone might be able to help me with a recommendation of a driving instructor in Dublin 16.

    I don't know whether it's good to go with a private instructor or one of these chain driving schools.

    I'm a cyclist so I'm aware of other road users and procedures but I've only sat in a car once or twice. Both times I just moved the car with no accelerator use, just with the clutch off. I found it very hard to cope with how "fast" it seemed to be going (even though it wasn't going very fast at all!!!), with steering and with trying to do everything all at once.

    I therefore need an instructor sympathetic to someone in my situation who might not be a very fast learner :)

    Any help would be appreciated :D

    @ Broomstick
    There's no need to post numerous times about the same request one after the other, everyone can see your first post just fine.

    Driving Instructor Referral for D16 Perchance?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 140 ✭✭ candy_pants


    Hi there,

    I know there are plenty of threads recommending good driving instructors so I hope I don't irritate anyone by posting this message but I have had GOOD instructors but what I need now is someone really exceptional!

    I started driving 3 and a half years ago. Had approx 8 lessons and I was doing really well. My driving was becoming more confident and slowly more skillfull. However, I didn't have insurance and a car of my own so I couldn't get in regular practise. Now everytime I sit behind the wheel its like the first time.

    It's becoming a serious problem as I have gone from feeling quite confident and driving for long periods of time to being agitated behind the wheel even in an empty car park.

    As I'm becoming quite distressed the longer this goes on, I'm looking for an instructor who will understand how difficult I am finding getting back on the road and someone especially patient. I know most instructors are great and patient but has anyone out there had someone really exceptional who can help me with this block that I have?

    I am going to search through the boards now but I really would appreciate someone recommended to me based on my experience...

    Thanks in advance...

    UPDATE: I would need an instructor in the southside of Dublin
