Our HGV Training Centre

We are the only Driving School in Ireland that owns a HGV Reversing Bay. Our HGV Training Centre is conveniently located next to the RSA Finglas Driving Test Centre and provides a safe and secure environment for shunting trucks, practice for coupling and un-coupling trucks and off-side and near-side reversing. All our centers and instructors are fully qualified and are more than helpful and relaxed with helping you learn how to be an expert Artic truck driver.

Artic Truck LessonsWe have designed our Reversing Bay to the same standard as the Road Safety Authority, so you can reach the Driving Test standard in a responsible and professional manner. All other Driving Schools use public street corners which is not at all safe for other road users.

Also, all our Training Vehicles are fitted with Air Brake Dual Controls and are fully insured. Your ADI ISM Driving Instructor will always be in control of the vehicle, so your safety and the safety of other road users will never be compromised. For more information or to make a booking call us now at 1850 530 430 or email us your details to and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
