    kwikjig2017 Sarah H passed with Top Gear Driving Academy I just passed my driving test in Finglas with Paul from Top Gear. I would highly recommend him especially if you feel you are a nervous driver. Paul is highly competent and encouraging and he wants his students to ace their test from the moment they step into his car. He was extremely flexible with his time for me and would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone who needs lessons. A one-of-a-kind instructor! Best of luck Top Gear!

    Paul Impey

    kwikjig2017 Paul Impey passed with Top Gear Driving Academy Thanks very much Paul..
    Paul´s ability to focus on the parts of your driving that are weak and perfect them in a very short time is exactly what I needed for the driving test. In two sessions I really became aware of the issues that were causing me to struggle and he turned them in to strengths so I could focus on other aspects of driving. The pressure of the the driving test drastically reduced after Paul´s help.

    Shane Williams

    kwikjig2017 Shane Williams passed with Top Gear Driving Academy Huge thanks to Paul.
    I failed my test first time around two years ago and had picked up a lot of bad habits while driving. Paul helped me focus on all the points that where important and key for passing the driving test. He striped away all the bad habits and still gave me the confidence in myself and my driving to pass it this time around. I´d recommend Paul to any person looking to pass their test FIRST time around! Thanks again Paul

    Delia Baker

    kwikjig2017 Delia Baker passed with Top Gear Driving Academy Hi, my name is Delia. I am 60 and have done my driving test several times. In the past, on the day of the test I´ve always been very nervous and this has affected my driving ability. I was dreading my upcoming driving test again and was on the verge of cancelling when my husband suggested using RSA driving school for a few lessons. My new teacher Paul was brilliant. He imediatly put me at ease and although it was only a few days to my test he took me under his wing and we got started with a few lessons. He was more confident that I would pass than I was. On the day of the test I done a pre test with Paul. He said to me "you go in there and get your licence, you know that you can do it " so I did. I couldn´t believe it when the tester said congratulations you´ve passed. Thank you Paul for getting me through a difficult time. I would highly recommend you to anyone doing the driving test.

    Paul made my lessons and pre test lessons fun and enjoyable, while also directing me on a professional level. He made sure I was learning and improving after every lesson. I went from being a learner driver to a confident driver who passed her test first time, and I owe it all to Paul. I highly recommend Top Gear Driving Academy and Paul O´Brien.

    I passed my test on the 14/05/2014 and would like to thank Paul who made every lesson enjoyable as well as great learning experience in preparation for the test. Paul narrowed down the main points in which we had to focus on and had me relaxed and confident going into the test. Thanks again for everything and I will highly recommend Top Gear Driving Academy to anyone I know considering driving lessons in the future.

    I can´t recommend Top Gear Driving Academy highly enough. Having tried 2 other driving schools before finding Paul, I refreshingly realised on my first lesson that this is not just a job for him, he gives 100% to every lesson doing his very best to make sure you are relaxed using humour and encouragement but always professional. He firmly believes in your abilities as a learner driver and boosts your confidence by telling you all you´re doing right while all the while gently reminding you of all the drills involved with driving.
    You never feel like you are driving against the clock and Paul always has time after a lesson to talk about how it went and to answer any questions rather than racing off to his next lesson.
    Unlike other instructors, Paul is incredibly patient and doesn´t make you feel stupid when you need to ask a question about something even if he has answered it loads of times for you before.
    He is very calm and in all the lessons that I had with him, he never once, grabbed the wheel or used his controls, instead he advised and ensured that I managed the situation myself.
    I have gone from dreading getting into the car, to actually enjoying it and all thanks to Paul and his "You can do this" attitude and encouragement. Thankyou so much!

    I booked my lessons through Top gear academy as there was a great deal on groupon. Three one hour lessons for 29 euro.

    I was able to book my lessons online by checking the time slots available which was quick and simple and it was great to get the reminder texts the day before to let me know the time and pick up address.

    The lessons were very good and I was provided with all the information needed in order to pass my test. I was also given road rules questions and answers fact sheet which was incredibly helpful.

    I would definitely recommend this company for driving lessons.

He was also very patient and good humoured throughout the lessons. He always made me feel at ease with driving, and he had me feeling very confident going into the test. I even had his voice ringing in my ear giving me directions during the test, and I give him full credit for my pass!
