If you are a learner driver in the Lusk area these are some details that might help you make a decision.
The distance from Lusk village to the Finglas test centre is 22 km. It will take you about 25 minutes to drive during off peak times. This should be taken into account if you are planning to do some pre-tests in the Finglas area. That means that you should do your lessons in two hour blocks to make sure you get to experience the full range of test routes.
Also you can do your practicing in Swords which Top Class Driving School highly recommends as we have set out a number of routes which match the Finglas and Raheny test areas.
If you’re thinking about the Raheny test centre you should also consider the travelling from Lusk to Raheny. The distance from Lusk to the Rahney test centre is 23 km and it will take you about 45 minutes to drive at off peak times. This should be taken into account when planning your practice or pre-test lessons. If you are short of time then you can prepare for you test with Top Class Driving School on some of the pre planned routes that have been set out to match the test routes in Raheny.
If you are a learner driver in Rush and you are trying to pick your driving test centre then you should consider the travelling time. The distance from Rush to the Finglas test centre is 26 km. It’s going to take almost an hour to drive during off peak times.
At Top Class Driving School we would recommend that you prepare yourself in the Swords area. We have pre set routes that are very similar to the conditions you will face in Finglas. This will save you time and money and once you are confident with your ability then you can do some lessons in the Finglas area to become familiar with the test routes.
If you are considering taking your driving test in the Raheny test centre you should consider that the distance from Rush to the Rahney test centre is 27 km and it’s likely to take you over an hour to drive there during off peak times.
Again we at Top Class Driving School would suggest you could prepare for your driving test on the pre-set routes we have set out which match the conditions you will face in Raheny.
While you are waiting for your test date you can also do some practice in the St. Catherine’s housing estate. There are some left and right turns along with some tricky T-junctions. The estate will also give you an opportunity to practice your reverse and turnabout manoeuvres.
I passed my test today after failing four times at the same test centre. I still can’t believe it, it’s like a dream. I will forever be grateful to you Pat for being so good at what you do, patient, but above all for being so friendly and easy to relate to.
Once again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
I did my 12 EDT lessons with Pat as well as a few pre-tests. Pat’s expertise and patience really helped and filled me with confidence going into my test, which I passed first time. I would encourage anyone to learn from Pat.

I would highly recommend Pat as a driving instructor. He explained everything in a clear and calm way. I feel his expertise really helped me pass my test.
Thank you Pat

If you are a learner driver in the Swords area you will have the perfect preparation for passing your driving test in either the Finglas or Raheny test centres.
If you are learning to drive with Top Class Driving School you will be taught how to drive in the same sort of conditions as you will encounter on your driving test. That means wether you are a complete beginner or you have experience, and you want to get ready for your test Top Class Driving School is the school you should choose.
The distance between Swords and the Finglas test centre is 14 km but it will only take about 15minutes to drive to the test centre.
If you are planning to do your driving test in Raheny the distance from Swords to the Rahney test centre is 13 km and the travelling time is approximately 30 minutes. The driving instructors at Top Class driving School know all of the test routes in both the Raheny and Finglas test areas and can have you completely prepared for your driving test as long as you are willing to put in the preparation work.
Lots of people are good drivers but they have bad habits and are not doing all of the observation the tester may be looking for!
If you are learning to drive in the Malahide area and you are considering which test centre to take your driving test then you might consider the following information:-
The distance between Malahide and the Finglas test centre is 15 km. It takes approximately 30 minutes to drive to the Finglas test centre and this should be taken into account when you are planning your pre-tests and practice around the Finglas test routes.
If you are considering taking your driving test in the Raheny test centre you should allow approximately 20 minutes travelling time as the distance from Malahide to the Rahney test centre is 10 km.
If you are learning to drive in the Portmarnock area and you are considering which test centre to take your driving test then you might consider the following information:-
The distance between Portmarnock and the Finglas test centre is 12 km. It takes approximately 20 minutes to drive to the Finglas test centre and this should be taken into account when you are planning your pre-tests and practice around the Finglas test routes.
If you are considering taking your driving test in the Raheny test centre you should allow approximately 10-15 minutes travelling time as the distance from Portmarnock to the Rahney test centre is 5 km.
It is important to keep in mind the travelling time from home to the test area as it will be much easier for you to practice in that area if it doesn’t take too long for you to get there.
Choose Top Class Driving School and you can pass your driving test at the first attempt.
How are you these days? Would you imagine I passed my driving test only in January and I’ve already bought a new car… Audi A3!
Driving like a pro now, thanks to you!!
I started off as a nervous driver but after doing a few lessons with Pat my confidence built up. Pat was so helpful and always took the time at the end of lessons to clarify both strengths and weaknesses which really made practicing between lessons easier.
I passed my driving test first time thanks to all his tips. The pre-test on the morning of my test helped me so much and I found that I wasn’t as nervous after it.
I wasn’t familiar with driving in Finglas but he gave me great knowledge of the area.
I would recommend Pat if you want to pass your test first time because his tips and knowledge were key in me passing and getting rid of my L plates.
Thanks Pat for your huge part in helping me pass my driving test. I completed my 12 essential driving lessons with Top Class driving school and within a short period passed my test with flying colours.
Pat is a fantastic, professional instructor and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He shows great patience which kept me at ease behind the wheel and his constructive criticism and encouragement made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I felt 100% safe behind the wheel at all times throughout the lessons. Pat helped me to constantly build and develop my skills as a new driver. Pat is extremely patient and always has time to answer questions no matter how small they may seem.
Pat Ferris was the reason I passed my driving test! He was incredibly patient and thorough throughout every lesson and gave me great confidence to take into both my test and my future driving.
I would highly recommend Pat to any person who is looking to not just sit their test, but actually pass it!
