I moved down from Donegal in September. Didnt know anywhere in cork! Started lessons with Colm 6 months ago. Cannot recommend a better driver instructor than Colm. My driving improved so much since I started lessons with Ace driving school. These guys know what they're doing and talking about!! Today I passed my test. Absolutely over the moon. I recommend Ace driving school to anyone wanting to learn how to drive and have their test coming up. 10/10. Thanks a million for everything!!

I couldnt speak more highly of Michael and how much of a brilliant instructor he is, he is a lovely man and so easy and friendly to get on with, he makes what should be a stressful situation a calm and cool expereince, he went through everything step by step with me and made sure I was comfortable with everything because of this I passed my test first time and couldnt be more happier to say that it is all thanks to Michael. His experience in driving shows in his teaching. I would refer anyone I know to Michael. So definitely worth it.

Mr Michael Griffin is a fantastic driving instructor - patient and dedicated. He knows exactly when to praise and when to point out mistakes, so that I got self confidence, together with the driving skills. He didn't teach me just how to drive, more importantly, he tought me how to judge the traffic. I realised that I had developed many bad driving habits but following Mr Griffins instructions, improvement was visible after each lesson. As a result, I passed my driving test first time and more importantly, I now drive much more safely than before we met. What great teachers do, is they don't simply give you a fish but they teach you how to catch it. In the field of driving knowledge Mr Griffin will not teach you just driving skills he will teach you how to be a safe road user, both for yourself and also for other road users.

I cant thank Michael enough for teaching me how to drive and helping me get from no experience in driving to passing my test! From day 1 he trusted me behind the wheel and his calm approach meant that I never felt nervous. he was always flexible to meet me in Cork City. By the time my test was coming around I'd known the routes inside out, what to expect and how to do everything correctly! Thanks again Michael.

Without a doubt I could not have overcome the hurdle of passing my driving test without Mr Michael Griffin. From the outset Michael was kind and welcoming, putting me at ease behind the wheel. His cool calm nature coupled with his never failing patience makes him a first rate instructor. His knowledge of the road and requirements for the test itself is second to none. Crucially, Michael truly cares about his clients and is invested in their success. This commitment makes all the difference. I am grateful for all that he did for me and he will always have my highest recommendation.

Thank you Martina for all your help!! I did my last 8 lessons with Martina over the last few months, and my pre-test lesson with her on Sunday. And I passed my driving test first time on Monday morning!! A friend recommended Martina to me after she passed her test first-time with her a year ago. Martina made me feel really comfortable behind the wheel and broke things down for me that helped me better understand what to do. She also made me fell more confident behind the wheel unlike my previous instructor. I would recommend Martina to any of my friends or family!! Thank you again Martina and ACE driving school!!

I was lucky to be trained by Liam and Brian (different approach and perfect combination for me): very professional, impressive teaching skills, friendly warm attitude. Liam is perfect for female drivers - he is very patient and well prepared for all our difficulties and silly questions ;) I would highly recommend ACE and have already shared the contact with my colleague.

I started learning how to drive with Debi in January, and she was an amazing tutor. I had no car of my own to practice driving in, but Debi reassured me with her patience and supportive nature that I would do just fine- and I did! With Debi's guidance, I passed my driving test on the first go and I would highly recommend her to anyone who's nervous about driving for the first time :) Debi is incredibly cool, calm and collected- something that helped me build my confidence in driving, she made me feel as if I was a capable driver even though I was still learning the ropes. Thank you so much, Debi, you're brilliant and I'll miss the laughs we had during our lessons!

Six months ago I started driving lessons with ACE and today I passed my test, first time! I cannot speak highly enough of both instructors I worked with, Brian and Liam were utterly fantastic, had endless patience and were so flexible and accommodating in arranging lessons to fit in with my schedule. I looked forward to my lessons every week and always left with a great feeling of achievement as I had learned so much, the structure and approach is really balanced so I could continue to build on my skills / experience gradually without becoming overwhelmed. Once my test date was confirmed, Brian tailored a plan for me to ensure I was as prepared as possible for the day and I am so pleased with the result, could not have done it without him! It's truly a pleasure to learn from instructors who are so knowledgeable, experienced and passionate about teaching and driving! Thank you Brian and Liam.

I had lessons with other instructors in the area, then a friend recommended Colm . From the first driving lesson he cleared up all the confusion which had been caused by my previous instructor. I had no confidence in my driving and thought I was the worst learner in the world, but with Colms years teaching experience you soon realize there is nothing you are going to do that he hasnt seen a learner driver do before, and there is great comfort in that. Thanks Colm for getting my confidence back. I can honestly say Colm is the best instructor out there!!! Karen o Keffe , Cork

If your a nervous driver and are petrefied about going behind the wheel, you have nothing to worry about with Colm. I convinced myself for years that i would never ever drive, that it wasn’t for me. However, when i started learning to drive with Colm, that completely changed – for the better. I have been receiving lessons from Colm for the past six months now. In that space of time, he has helped transform me from a completely inexperienced learner to a competent, relaxed and responsible driver on the roads. His sketches and methods for remembering key apsects of driving really help you to understand and remember each lesson. Colm is extremely patient and makes you feel 100% at ease out on the road. He will challenge you to really improve to the best of your ability. I would definitely recommend Colm to anyone like me, who once refused to drive. I couldent have done this without the help of Colm And The Team @ Ace Driving School Cork Gerard Murphy

I was very nervous getting behind the wheel again after 15 years without driving, but Colm reassured me with his confidence in his ability to teach me and trust me it really worked. I spent 2 hrs a week with Colm right up to my driving test and passed first time Colm was true to his word as he did tell me after my first lesson that I would pass my test first time once I had some self belief and trusted him. I have complete faith in Colm and would only recommend him and his colleagues in Ace Driving School as they really know what they are about. I have learned so much from Colm and Ace that even now after passing my test I still drive exactly as thought with due care and attention at all times with respect for other road users as well as myself.

I found Debi Platt to be an outstanding driving instructor, whom I would recommend to anyone. I know that I was not the easiest student: I do not have a natural aptitude for driving, am susceptible to nervousness, and had previous driving experience only in America. Debi did a fantastic job of developing familiarity with driving in Cork, with particular attention to my areas of weakness. Again and again I marvelled at her patience (which I certainly tested!), and at the persistent encouragement which eventually got me to a pass. She knows when to be firm, and makes sure that students work hard on getting things right; but with her great sense of humour and her many interests she is also good at maintaining a light atmosphere in lessons. Her familiarity with the test centre and its staff is invaluable. I feel that I was very fortunate to have her as my instructor; and, once again, I recommend her in the warmest terms.

A massive thank you to Martina for my fantastic achievement of passing my driving test on my first go!
I began driving lessons with Martina as a quiet girl with a low self-esteem when it came to driving. Martina not only performed well at boosting my confidence during my driving lessons, she also went out of her way to explain the aspects of driving, lesson after lesson. Without fail she did an exceptional job. She made me feel so comfortable with driving and i am thrilled with the outcome. Would highly Martina for anyone looking for a great instructor.
