    I did my 12 lessons and my pretests with Mike and it was a fantastic experience. He taught me everything I needed to know and helped me improve my confidence as a driver. Definitely recommend Mike as an instructor for anyone starting their driving journey 😀

    I had two pre tests with Mike before my test and passed first time. He really helped me stay relaxed in the car and is so helpful and is so happy to answer all your questions! Couldn’t recommend more :)

    My experience with Pass and Go, specifically Mike, was awesome and completely worth it. I booked a couple of pre-test sessions with him for Raheny and without his help I’m not sure I would have passed my test first time! He was not only professional, knowledgeable, and straightforward…… he was very patient and that made all the difference in the world to me! I would absolutely use his service again if I ever need to!

    I highly recommend Pass and Go Driving School, specifically Mike !!!! He is very patient, understanding, professional, knowledgeable and informative with every instruction. Coming from the States “and re-learning” to drive again …..I don’t think I could’ve passed without his help! 5 stars all day and would definitely use him again if ever there was ever a need.

Couldn’t be happier with his service I highly recommend.

    Couldn't recommend Pass & Go enough! From first contact they were so fast at responding and very accommodating to my schedule. Having failed the test before I was nervous about taking it again but with Greg's help I passed easily this time around. Greg is a fantastic instructor and I'd absolutely recommend him to anyone. Wish I had gone with Pass & Go in the first place - thanks again!

    Would absolutely recommend Mike to anyone looking for a driving instructor. I did all 12 lessons with him as well as several mock tests. He instilled confidence in me from the very beginning, allowing me to grow and improve as a driver as we went through the lessons. His calm, kind demeanour puts you at such ease in the car and enables you to get the best out of yourself. I ended up passing the test on my first try, which is something I wouldn’t have thought possible when I began my lessons. And it certainly would not have been possible if it weren’t for Mike and the Pass and Go Driving School.

    I had the pleasure of learning to drive with Mike and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the start, Mike's friendliness put me at ease, making each lesson enjoyable and stress free. He was patient and made sure I felt comfortable behind the wheel, even when faced with stressful situations. I highly recommend Mike, with his guidance I gained the skills and confidence to drive and passed my test first time.

    I did all 12 lessons and a pretest with Mike and couldn't recommend a better man to teach someone to drive. Broke down every lesson into easy to understand pieces and made learning to drive a walk in the park. Always gives the right advice and is looking out for you right until the end. Passed first time all thanks to the guidance given by him. A pleasure to work with and lots of craic to be had as well along the way.

    Just pass my driving test on first attempt in Raheny, huge thanksss to fantastic instructor Mike. we also did pre test and he gave me all the tips with the route.
    07:21 24 Apr 24
    Booked in for a 90min pre test with Mike and car hire for the test. I was a bag of nerves until I got chatting to Mike, he was so confident in my abilities that I felt instantly put at ease. He helped me through what I felt was holding me back and gave me some helpful theory information for before the test. Honestly think had I booked with anyone else I wouldn't have been as confident and definitely wouldn't have passed first go! Can't recommend booking in with him enough, a lovely calming manner and we had good craic along the way which made life easier!

Having had an uneasy start learning to drive, by the time I booked in with Mike it was such a relief to find such an amazing instructor, he was very patient and informative, throughout our lessons he cleared up everything I was unsure of for the test. After I had my lessons with Mike I passed first time! 😄🎉 Would 100% recommend booking in with Pass and Go.

    I did my 12 lessons as well as pretests with Mike and cannot recommend him enough, he kept a calm and positive environment in the car throughout the lessons which was extremely helpful for me as I was progressing through them. His tips for practicing outside of lessons were second to none and his encouragement along with support coming up to my test did wonders to settle my nerves and help me pass first time. Mike is a brilliant instructor and a gent as well, would 100% recommend to anyone looking to learn how to drive and pass their test first time.

    I've been driving for a long time but have to sit the lessons for the Irish license. Mike is easy going, professional, and has a lot of tips and great advice, for new or experienced drivers. I had switched instructors previously and delighted I did as Mike is an excellent teacher. Definitely recommended especially because I passed my driving test! Couldn't have done it without Mike, he's a legend.

    Did my pretests with Mike less than a week before my test which I can delightfully say I passed. Before stepping foot in the car with him I lacked confidence and a lot of key fundamentals. Had I gone into my test without Mike's tutoring I would've been roasted on the marking sheets. Having had three separate instructors in the past, Mike is the number one example of an incredible teacher, with amazing feedback on both the good and bad of my driving, clear and helpful instructions in an environment that felt inviting and educational to no end. In two pretests I was taken from a learner driver, with many bad habits and driving flaws, to passing my first Driving Test in less than a week. Can't speak any more highly of Mike's tutoring, any learner driver would be seriously blessed to have him.
