Desperate for driving lessons in Waterford

Hi guys,

I've been unable to take lessons in the last few months due to medical problems and now am desperate to get lessons.
The one that has been recommended to me the most - Passmasters are totally booked up for next wk and thats when I wanted to do them.
Not sure who to ring now.
If anyone has had lessons and can recommend anyone, please please let me know.
You might need to PM me on that
Want to try and get as many lessons as poss next wk and then drive on my own, I'm on my 2nd prov, so need to get applying for that test!!

Thanks so much.

Eh, you want to cram all your lessons into one week?

Please dont tell me you have been driving around without any lessons previously?!

I think passmasters are booked out as they ran a special offer with the college during road safety week, where people got a discount.. There are plenty of other companies out there tho such as ISM @ http://www.ism.ie/learning_drive/learn_drive/car.asp

If your looking for an individual person, theres a chap that a lot of people recommend in Tramore. Cant think of his name for the life of me, but im sure someone will bound to give you his name and number. Ill try rustle up the chap who I got my lessons from.

I was sort of the same. I got my first provisional with the intention of learning to drive, but never got around to it until I had my second and found myself in need of a car.

You will find a list of instructors in Waterford City and County here.

Just select Driving Schools and select Waterford.

Personally I used Keiran Kennedy as did my wife, and we found him excellent, however that was nearly 10 years ago now.

Kieran Kennedy Driving School

No problem, and best of luck with your driving for the future.

And remember, we were all learners at some stage.
