Samantha Driving Test Pass Navan“I just arrived back from Australia last Friday and I urgently need a lesson, a pretest and the use of a car for my test today (Monday), Ollie came through for me on all 3 counts even though it was very short notice.

Either side of the 12 EDT lessons I went from never driving a car to passing my test and I wouldn’t have done it without Ollie! Just waiting on my license to be posted out and it’ll finally sink in!

Colm Driving Test Pass Raheny“Thanks Ollie, you have been a great driving instructor, thanks for fully preparing me to be able to do the driving test. I wish you all the best in the future, thanks again!” Colm, Artane



“I would like to thank Ollie for his patience and the support he gave me when I was preparing for my driving test. I came across his website off chance and thought I’d have one lesson with him and see what he’s like and I am glad I did. Ollie is very professional while still being friendly and making you feel completely at ease. You get detailed notes/diagrams on areas that need improving, how to get rid of bad habits and improve driving skills without neglecting other aspects of driving. My first driving test report was 5 Grade 1, 26 grade 2 and 3 grade 3 faults. After just 2 weeks of tuition with Ollie I had a result of 3 Grade 1 faults and 5 grade 2 faults in my second test. I found his experience and vast knowledge of the test and questions most invaluable in the days leading to the test and on the test day. He was very supportive and he makes you have more confidence and belief in yourself which is something only very experienced people can do. Even when you get frustrated he calms you down and explains how the task is done and he gives feedback after each lesson so you can follow your progress. My only regret is that I did not meet him earlier as it would have saved me a lot in terms of time money and tears! I am a better driver thanks to Ollie and I would most definitely recommend him to everyone. ”  Vivian, Dublin 8
Coran Driving Test Pass Navan“Thanks for everything Ollie! Ollie is a brilliant instructor. If you want to pass your test I would recommend him to anyone!”  Coran, Longwood

Indre Pass

“Hi Ollie, i just wanna say Big Thank You for all your help!!! I don’t think i could’ve done it so well without you., For all of those who are considering to take driving lessons i can honestly say that Ollie is one of the best driving instructors I know. From the very first lesson I always felt very relaxed. He always told my mistakes and how to avoid them in the future. I was always looking forward for the next driving lesson. I never felt pressurized even though he can be stict sometimes. Yet, when the day of my driving test arrived i wasn’t nervous, i was rather excited. Ollie showed me great support and went through the basic techniques before my test, which made me even more confident. During my driving test, I was very calm, ’cause I was ready and well prepared. I passed in first go, and only made 2 mistakes. Ollie made me an excellent driver and I will always be thankful for his help and such a great support. Again big Thank You!!!”  Indre, Rathmines

Fiona Pass

“Hi Ollie, just want to say a very very big thank you for getting me through my test first time around. Your relaxed style of teaching put me at ease straight away on day one. I couldn’t have done it with you, your help, support and patience were invaluable. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking for lessons in the future because not only are they great lessons, they’re on a one to one basis which makes it easier and not to mention they are great value too. thanks again for everything”  Fiona, Artane 

Andrew Pass

“Thanks for everything Ollie. I had never so much as been in the driver seat of a car before my first lesson with you in october and then 12 weeks later I passed my test first time round. The relaxed atmosphere you created in the car made me feel comfortable and I was never afraid to ask stupid questions or make mistakes. I couldn’t recommend Ollie more and for the standard of the lessons I think you could be charging a lot more!”  Andrew, Donnybrook

“I would not hesitate to recommend driving lessons from Ollie at OB Drive. He is a very calm, patient and encouraging instructor. I took my test in Churchtown and Ollie’s knowledge of the test routes was invaluable. It put me at ease during my test having already driven on some of the roads. Ollie also offers very competitive rates. In the current economic climate, it isn’t manageable for everyone to pay 40 euro a lesson. Ollie offers the same standard of instructing at a much more reasonable price. Thanks again Ollie!”     Jean, Blackrock
 “Hi Ollie, thanks for all your help, you did a great job with me never thought i would pass but you always had confidence in me. Will mention your name to anyone that’s looking for lessons, thanks again”  Kelly, Ballinteer

Gabriel Pass

“Thanks to OB Drive, I passed my driving test. I’m not a novice at driving and thought I would do fine on my driving test without too much work, but some friends convinced me to take some driving lessons before I took my Irish driving test. I would have never passed had it not been for those lessons! Not only did Ollie prepare me for specific exam situations (he predicted just about every single one!), but he also taught me the skills I need to drive safely and confidently in Dublin. Thank you, Ollie!” Gabriel, Canada (UCD)

“I learned to drive almost 21yrs ago with many gaps in between, so I have actually been driving now approx 14yrs and trust me I picked up loads of bad habits! I have sat my test three times and finally passed today! (Third time lucky!) This time I took five pre-test lessons with Ollie and I am so glad I did! I found Ollie to be very patient and friendly he put me at ease on every lesson. My main concern was the ‘reversing around the corner’ as I have ‘NEVER’ been able to complete this correctly. I told Ollie this from the first lesson and he told me I could adjust the mirror to my left when I am asked by the tester to do the reverse, during my test this morning I adjusted the mirror and as a result I actually managed to do it perfectly with no ‘Grades’ marked against me!… Thank you so much Ollie… You are a starbar!:) ”  Linda, Navan
“I’d tried different instructors previously but Ollie was definitely a find and the best value around. As a very nervous learner his cool, calm and collected attitude is just what was needed. With his incredible patience and encouraging nature you always felt at ease with him in the car. After each lesson he made a point of highlighting your progress which left you feeling very positive. He has a very thorough way of teaching and goes through every detail both large and small that you will need for your test. I couldn’t have done it without him and will be forever grateful for all the help he gave me. Thanks Ollie best of luck”  Sorcha, Drumcondra
“I took lessons from Ollie in the lead up to my driving test – which I passed first time – a testimonial to Ollie’s excellent style of teaching! He’s very patient and gives loads of great tips and helpful pointers which helped me a great deal in passing my test – I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ollie to all stages of learners. Thanks again Ollie and all the best ”   Ellie, Lucan
 “I got lessons with Ollie leading up to my driving test and I was really put at ease during the lessons. I was always felt comfortable to ask questions and Ollie had a lot of patience with me and the criticism was always constructive so I never left a lesson feeling discouraged or frustrated. One thing that sets him apart from most other driving schools is you get the full 60 minutes and your money is work every minute! Ollie was so calm during the lessons and that made me really calm during my test and I passed confidently. Thanks again and best of luck!”  Paula, Goatstown
“Ollie was a great driving instructor. He had a lot of patience which helped create a relaxed atmosphere during the lessons, which definitely helped me a great deal. He also made sure that any bad habits that I had been doing, or that I was just starting to do were stopped straight away! I would definitely recommend Ollie to anyone looking for a well-priced, patient and relaxed driving instructor who can help you pass your first time!”  Sophie, Blackrock
“Driving lessons with OB Drive really made a difference to my driving. I finally passed my test thanks to the great instruction I received”  Alison, Shankill

Eva Driving Test Pass Churchtown

“I was a complete beginner and I was pretty nervous to start off with but Ollie was a fantastic instructor. He provided encouragement, correction and advice at appropriate times and after just a few minutes I felt at ease behind the wheel. After just a handful of lessons I had come a long way. OB Drive were very accommodating and flexible with lesson times at my convenience. I also had a pre-test lesson which was extremely beneficial and prepared me well for the test – without Ollie I would never have passed! I would highly recommend him”  Eva, Knocklyon
