Thanks a million!
Pat was a great teacher! I went from hardly knowing how to turn on a car to passing my test first time in quite a short space of time! He is extremely patient as I would consider myself a little nervous and he still made sure that I was driving well.
If you’re looking for your first lesson or some pre test lessons I would and will strongly recommend this driving school.
I highly recommend Pat as a driving instructor to help you pass your driving test.
Firstly Pat knows his stuff…he knows what the testers are looking for you to do and not to do…And he gets you driving in that way.
Pat teaches in a gentle and encouraging way that builds your confidence in your own driving. He’s a very decent and friendly guy and he was very generous in the time he gave me for each session, often giving me significantly more time than I’d booked for.
With Pat you get the sense that he is not just teaching to make a living but that it’s important to him that you pass the test, which I did ! 🙂
Go with Pat ! 🙂
I’ve just passed my driving test at Raheny thanks to my amazing instructor Pat Ferris! He was incredibly patient with me during each lesson yet challenged me to reflect on my mistakes and to demonstrate that I had learned from them.
Pat has the perfect personality for teaching – ability to provide good clear instruction, use visual aids for demonstration, ability to cater for every type of learner driver, gives constructive feedback and ultimately ensures that you are 100 percent ready to take the test.
Pat also has a great sense of humour and his relaxed manner really put me at ease – even on the morning of my test. He was absolutely delighted for me when I came out of the test centre with my competency certificate and brand new N plates!
I would most certainly recommend Pat to any future learner. Thanks so much!
I would just like say that “I didn’t have much confidence or driving experience and my test was coming up in two months”. I used to make excuses why I couldn’t drive but Pat gave me the confidence and I realised I could drive well and pass my test.
I never thought it was possible but thanks to Top Class Driving School I passed my test and am starting to really enjoy driving.
Hi Pat just to let you know I passed my driving test this morning. Thanks for all your time and help I couldn’t have done it without you.
I don’t think I could have learnt from a better driving instructor!
Pat was always so flexible in working my lessons around my schedule, sometimes at very short notice. He was very supportive and has a great way about coaching a new driver.
Would recommend Top Class Driving School any day if you really are serious about driving and passing your test 1st time.
I passed my test on the third time thanks to Pat!
I had received many lessons before from other instructors but never felt confident or prepared enough going into the test previously. The lessons and pre tests were excellent and always delivered in a very professional and patient manner. His feedback was also very useful and he always clarified what I needed to improve on for the next lesson.
In particular I found the pre test before the actual driving test extremely useful. It really gave me the confidence to pass an hour later! He knew the route very well and I even did some of the parts tested on the lesson on the very same roads and routes we had practiced! This made it a lot easier to pass on the day!
I felt 100 percent prepared on the day of the lesson and would highly recommend him to anyone starting to drive or to those who want to iron out their bad habits to prepare to take the test!
Thanks Pat for your patience and guidance. Your calm teaching approach and attention to detail helped me achieve the desired result.
The day I passed the test was the best feeling in the world.
Thank you so much!!
I started receiving lessons from Pat a number of months ago having used different instructors in the past. I found Pat to be excellent. He was patient, provided great advice and was very flexible in terms of lesson times. Most importantly I passed my driving test first time so I would highly recommend Pat to anyone learning how to drive.
I am so happy that I found Pat! He was absolutely brilliant! I was always looking forward to the next lesson. He was very patient and understanding but at the same time he pushed me to achieve results. He is very friendly and easy to talk to, he finds the best way to explain things to u so u really understand and know what to do.
Pat gave me confidence to get in to the car and go on the road that other instructors couldn’t do. I was terrified of driving when I started but after my first lesson I was happy to drive around by myself. I’ve passed my test today and I am so happy that he made it possible! 8 months ago I couldn’t imagine myself on the road.
