Message:

I had been driving an automatic car for the last 10 years , but with a new job and a company car imminent , I was under huge pressure to pass my driving test. I had to do my test in a manual car. I did 12 driving lessons with another driving school and did the test 3 times within a 4 week period. I failed each test miserably. In desperation ,I contacted Fergus at short notice and did 3 lessons over 3 days and amazingly I passed the driving test on my 4th attempt. Fergus taught me things I was never thought before and it totally transformed my drive. This would not have been possible without his experience ,knowledge and professionalism. I truly cannot thank him enough.He is the best out there. I would recommend him 200% before any cowboy, money stroker instructors that are out there who have no clue how to teach. Thank you again Fergus. This is life changing for me. If you want to pass your test, book Fergus today. Heidi

I passed my driving test today and it was all down to Fergus.
For the past 3 months , I was in France on an internship and only returned home 3 days ago. I did not drive at all in France.
I was under pressure to find a driving instructor to get a few lessons for the few days left for my test .Fortunately I found Fergus. I told him how little driving practice I had over 3 months and he  I booked a 2 hour lesson on Sunday. Fergus completely changed my driving style in that time .He goes into 10 times more detail than any other instructors that I had before. Very calm ,assuming, polite ,punctual and he helped me overcome a lot of bad driving habits that I had.I can say that if I had not got Fergus ,I would have failed my test 100%.I would recommend him to everyone. I honestly think that with him you can pass the test with the mandatory 12 edt lessons.

I  would definitely recommend Fergus to any learner driver, especially those who find driving lessons frustrating. I have dealt with 2 other instructors in the past and although they were ok, I often felt agitated and pushed during lessons. With Fergus however he kept me relaxed and I did,nt feel pressured.

Fergus is very gentle and chilled out instructor which suited me perfectly. Thank you so much Fergus for helping me pass my test .Brilliant instructor.

Message:

Fergus is a wonderful instructor. He is patient and builds each lesson around the areas which one needs to improve on. He instills confidence and has a unique method on passing on his expertise. I felt that Fergus was genuinely interested in my development as a driver. Not just in terms of test preparation, but more importantly ensuring that I developed the necessary skills to be a competent and safe driver. I passed the driving test recently  and this could not have been achieved without Fergus. I would recommend Fergus without hesitation  to anyone either starting to drive for the first time or if preparing for your test. Thanks Fergus for all your help and support , it was much appreciated.

Fergus is very patient, always punctual and the most important thing he boosted my confident. My nerves was one of the reasons that it took me so long to get the whole driving process. Fergus instruction is kept simple and he explains step by step how to proceed with accuracy. I highly recommend him, especially if you can be fairly nervous. THANK YOU FERGUS.

I would like to say a big thank you to Fergus for helping me pass my test in Tallaght last week. The standard of Fergus’s teaching and instruction is superb. He made me feel confident but most important, when learning new things, relaxed. Although I was not a natural at driving, Fergus’s patience, professionalism and encouragement helped me to improve immeasurably and enjoy the process. Not only did I pass my test but I am definitely a better driver as a result of meeting Fergus

Message:

I switched to Lucan Driving Academy after  having a number of bad lessons with another instructor. There was a huge difference in the teaching style of Fergus. On the first lesson he pinpointed a lot of faults and and habits I was making. We worked on rectifying these and after a few lessons I found a big change in my driving. I have felt like a different driver after my lessons and I suddenly had a lot more confidence driving on my own. I also arranged pretest lessons just before my test and thankfully I passed first time at Tallaght. I highly recommend Fergus.

I cannot recommend Fergus enough for pointing out the bad habits I had picked up on all those years living abroad. I had failed my test once in Ireland and left it till now. Then I met Fergus and he told me he might be able to help me pass the driving test and he really did. He pointed out every little mistake and showed me how to correct them and drive competently. He is the best driving instructor I have ever known.Guys and girls if you want to succeed with your test call this man.

When I first had a lesson with Fergus, I had many, many bad habits. After as little as two lessons with Fergus, I was beginning to phase out the bad habits and becoming a more competent driver. With Fergus' patient and direct approach, I passed my test in Tallaght first time around. Having had lessons with a few instructors, I can honestly say Fergus is the best out there.
I highly recommend him to anyone.

Message:

After reading positive reviews about Fergus, I arranged a few pre tests with him before my actual test this past Thursday. First time we went out he let me drive around and picked out my weakest points in my drive, He then worked on those weak points with me. When those weak points were no longer a factor he got me to focus on the test itself. I went into my test very positive that I could pass the test and I passed. This was my second attempt at the test and difference in the results are amazing
Thanks Fergus

Message:

I have had lessons with other instructors in the past but have never felt this comfortable and confident when it comes to driving.
Fergus was recommended to me by a friend. I am taking driving lessons with Fergus since January and I have found him honest, encouraging and reliable having so far left every lesson learning a new skill but also at a pace that is right for me.
He instils a lot of confidence in pupils with helpful, well-balanced feedback after every single lesson. The feedback given about previous lessons is a great help as you know what to concentrate on in certain places but also where you have done well.
Fergus works with you rather than for you and shows patience and professionalism. You will not go wrong with a driving instructor who actually enjoys teaching. I would highly recommend Fergus to all who are considering taking driving lessons.

Learning to drive is now fun, challenging and very rewarding! Thank you, Fergus

Name: Kozue
Message:

Last year I had 15 lessons in a local off-road driving school in Maynooth, and I learnt from 4 different instructors. I wanted to stick to 1 instructor every time, but it wasn't easy. After my 15 lessons, I wasn't sure if I should continue, so I decided to take a break. At that time, I hated driving. I had a phobia. I didn't know what the problem was.
Then one day I found Fergus on the internet, and decided to learn from him. I found he was different from those instructors in that local school, and I also noticed it was very important to learn from the same person. Fergus is very patient and always pinpoints my bad habits every time, which that school couldn't do. The instructors in the local off-road school go through a set drill, but Fergus does not, he is more flexible and enthusiastic about teaching. And I'm a foreigner so I needed extra help. After a couple of lessons with Fergus, I started to relax and now am enjoying driving more. I really appreciate his skill and patience! I recommend Fergus to everyone. Thank you, Fergus!

I got Fergus,s number from Drivingtesttips.ie and I booked him because of his customer reviews .I had failed my test 3 times previously and did not feel very confident about my next test. Fergus  explained why I was coasting  where my faults in observation were and he improved my driving in no time. I passed my test in tallaght today and could not have done it without him. His service is excellent and worth every cent. Many Thanks.

Message:

I have been learning to drive for over one year, becoming frustrated with learning and therefore picking up a lot of bad habits. I had attended three other driving schools prior to finding Fergus, and not one of them was in a league with the techniques I am currently learning with Fergus. Fergus has a knack of breaking it down to a level you understand and tailoring the lessons to suit you, while establishing a learning technique that is personal to your specific requirements - this was exactly what I needed. I had a mental block when it came to driving and thought that it was as simple as turning on the engine and pointing the car in the right direction, I learned otherwise and this is when my nerves appeared. Fergus was able to identify all my bad habits and weak points and he explained how I can overcome them in a straightforward and encouraging way. I am learning with Fergus for over one month and currently aiming towards my test. I thought I'd be learning forever!!
 Fergus has given me the confidence I lacked on the road, he is patient and friendly but above all his teaching qualities of precision and accuracy are all that is needed to a learner driver. I can highly, highly recommend Fergus

Message:

I passed my test the other day! and it was all down to Fergus' help. I found the lessons were very good because each one improved a different part of my drive. I went home after the lessons understanding clearly what needed to be improved and then could work on that until the following lesson. I really recommend Fergus to anybody learning to drive, from beginners to people who just have some brushing up to do before their test. People think that driving is so complicated before starting but it can be very enjoyable when taught properly and I have to say, I have had bad experiences with instructors and I know the difference between a good one and a bad one! Thanks a million Fergus! Much appreciated, Laura.

I cannot recommend Lucan Driving Academy highly enough to anyone learning to drive for the first time.I was very nervous to start with, having put off taking lessons for a long time, but Fergus managed to put me at ease with his great patience & calm approach. I was very pleased with the quality and professionalism I received from Fergus and thanks to him I now have the confidence to take the car out on the road, knowing that I am doing everything correctly, as I was taught. I would highly recommend Fergus to all nervous drivers.

I did learner lessons and pre-test lessons with Fergus and I passed my driving test first time in Tallaght.I could not be happier with his service. His tuition is excellent. Whenever I would make a mistake, Fergus would explain it and rectify it. He also shows plenty of visuals and encourages feedback a lot.

I had previously sat my test twice and failed both times despite the fact that I had been driving abroad for more than 10 years. I thought I was a competent and safe driver so I was disappointed when I failed. I decided to take some lessons with Fergus.It became very clear that I had picked up a lot of bad habits, most of which I was completely oblivious to, and therefore causing me to fail.
After only a few lessons with Fergus, I understood where I was going wrong and the importance of adhering to the recommended way of driving in Ireland. Thanks to Fergus I passed my test! I felt confident doing my test, and only received two grade 2 faults from the tester.
I am so happy I used this driving academy that I will be signing my wife to do lessons shortly!

Hello everyone, My name is Tian, I come from China, I love everything in Ireland except the driving test. I had failed it twice before, both tests failed badly and I nearly had no confidence, I was left believing I would never ever pass the test until I find Fergus.
 
I found him very encouraging and helpful. He increased my confidence no end and spent a lot of time focusing on the areas that were difficult for me, such as clutch control, roundabout, and reversing around corners. He was exactly right in all his advice and told me exactly where my mistakes were and what to do.   He also took me to have plenty of practice on the popular test routes and gave me lots important tips!

And today, I finally pass my third test in Tallaght. Woohoo!! I could not believe it. I will and have recommended Fergus and the Lucan Driving Academy to everyone I know. Cheers Fergus!

Fergus and the Lucan Driving Academy are really great; helpful, patient and very professional. I had to take lessons with a long break in between lessons, pre-tests and test and every time I called Fergus remembered me and my habits and driving style, and was always able to help with technique, rules and advice about my car.

I have now passed my test and don't have any hesitation about recommending Lucan Driving Academy to everyone! Thanks again!

Thanks so much!! Fergus, I felt so happy the day when I passed my test, and I still am! It was difficult for me especially because I am from Latin America and we drive on the right side. At the beginning I was confused but thank God I found an excellent instructor who helped me to build my confidence and my knowledge.

Again, thank so much!! If you are looking for an instructor, this is the right place. Don’t think twice! I definitely recommend them a million times, because I spent money with another school, and I had to change because I didn´t see any progress.  Fergus is patience, has a  friendly personality and is very professional.
 
Thanks, Muchas Gracias.

Fergus provided me with excellent tuition and was extremely patient with me throughout the lessons. Fergus gave me a very good grounding in the basics of driving before moving on to more subtle aspects (like road position and junction markings etc.) which he also explained very well and allowed me to have plenty of practice on. Aspects obligatory on the test like (reverse around the corner, etc) were also covered comprehensively.

The pre-test lessons he provided were extremely helpful. He took me around the popular test routes, gave me lots of hints and tips that were vital to the test itself.

Thanks to all this I passed my test first time in Churchtown test centre . Overall I couldn’t  be happier with the driving tuition I received from fergus

I did automatic driving lessons with Fergus and he is a great instructor. I have come on in leaps and bounds and feel very confident now. Previous instructors did not show me what Fergus did and the difference is huge. I can steer properly , I use my handbrake much more and I observe more frequently. I strongly recommend him to anyone learning to drive. Thanks Amy
