CarL’s School of Motoring is dedicated to providing high quality both in customer service and driver education. I will do everything I can to meet your expectations.


I am a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI), having passed the RSA’s 3 stage examination and received Garda clearance and tax compliance certificates.


CarL’s School of Motoring came into being in October 2006 after I gained experience in the industry working for a large driving school. I was previously a school teacher and principal and this experience, together with my qualifications as a sports coach, have given me the skills required to communicate with all age groups.


I was previously a member of the Driving Instructor’s Register of Ireland, a voluntary register and forerunner to the official RSA register, which came into existence in 2008.


I am based in Shankill but cover all areas of South Dublin and North Wicklow, including the Rathgar test routes.


I provide a range of courses from complete beginners to pre-test lessons to more advanced post- test lessons e.g. motorway driving. I am also registered to deliver the Essential Driver Training (EDT) programme. (See later page for more information on this or check the RSA website.)



12 EDT lessons – €390-00 *

1 hour lesson – €35-00

5 lessons – €170-00

10 lessons – €330-00

*Be advised that it may take more than 12 lessons to complete the EDT programme with additional costs.
