Reg. Approved Driving Instructor……..U.K. 182655
Hi there, my name is Ronan Donnelly and welcome to the Donnelly School of Motoring website. I hope that this site can provide you with the necessary information to guide you in your quest to become a safe and fully licensed driver.
I qualified as an A.D.I. (Approved Driving Instructor) originally in the U.K. and worked in London for the B.S.M. (British School of Motoring). Then I returned home to Sligo in 1994 and started up on my own. Up to the recent past, there were no government approved driving instructors operating in Ireland, but now the R.S.A. (Road Safety Association) have set in place a proper structure for all new and current instructors. They must pass a series of exams designed to create a better and safer standard of instructors and learner drivers. This ‘raising of the bar’ for all instructors is ongoing and should help to improve the standard of driving on our roads.
I believe that each person learning to drive should do so at their own pace. Some people will find learning quite straightforward while others will find it very difficult, but with a little patience, everyone can achieve their goal and become a competent and safe driver. Remember. Being able to drive a car is one thing, staying safe is another thing completely. Your attitude to, and awareness of, other road users is what will define you as a driver!
Important note. If you received your FIRST learner permit after April 4th 2011 (check date on permit) you must take part in the new EDT course in order to eventually sit your driving test. Please check the RSA website for full details or contact me at the email address or phone numbers above.
Important changes have been made to driver licensing and learner permit rules with effect from 19th January 2013. Click here for further information. The new rate for a full licence is now 55€, up from 25€.
