Why Go


Manual driving lessons in Dublin have been the face of driving transmissions for almost as long as cars have been around. Manual driving lessons have ruled the road for decades up til as recent as the last 5 years. In the last 5-10 years the introduction of automatic transmission has vastly changed many peoples way of driving and commuting. Regardless of this manual driving lessons continue to be a desirable choice amongst learners today. Learning how to navigate a 5-speed or 6-speed transmission is a skill worth while to many. Not to mention the benefit of an unrestricted driving license allowing drivers to pilot both automatic & manual transmission vehicles.

Lyle was a really good driving instructor, I learned so much! I went in the car being terrified of the road and now I’m completely comfortable. I’d highly recommend him. Thanks so much for everything
