Our HGV Training Centre in Dublin
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. At this time we also serve all areas around the country such as Cork, Limerick, Kerry and Waterford. All our Centres and Instructors are fully qualified and are more than helpful and relaxed with helping you learn how to be an expert rigid truck driver.
We have designed our Reversing Bay exactly the same as the Road Safety has so you can reach the Driving Test standard in a 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

To whom it may concern,
I have just completed a 10 week HGV Rigid course at Partas centre in Tallaght and as a result have successfully passed my HGV Rigid driving test. The course was in my opinion very well laid out over the 10 week period. I was initially very apprehensive during the first module of the CPC, but was surprised by how easily it fell into place over the next few weeks. Our tutor Mr. John Connell put all participants at ease and was excellent in his delivery, and very comprehensive in any explanations to any queries during the CPC modules. The multiple choice and case study exams as a result were a breeze.
The ADR section which lasted a week was very intensive and packed with relevant content and Mr. John Lennon delivered the course like the expert he is. Again, the exams that followed were made so much easier by his attention to detail during the information packed week.
Joyce was immensely helpful in her assistance during the CV preparation and associated coursework. I now have a CV formatted to achieve the goal of securing a job.
I was surprised by the friendly and open attitude of the Trainers during the Fork Lift Truck course. All the people involved could not have been any more helpful in explaining the techniques of handling the machinery proficiently and with safety always at the fore. It was a great experience to be involved with experts in their field.
I wish to extend my gratitude to all the tutors involved in helping me complete the course with ease and confidence. But the tutor I would like to express my greatest thanks to is my driving instructor Ger. From the offset he was professional and sympathetic to each individuals needs with respect to their ability to control a large vehicle, and was able to encourage improvement in all the learners who were fortunate to receive his instruction. As a result of his direction I passed the driving test with just one fault.
Without doubt the course for me was a great success and would commend the architects of the project, including Frazier Meredith, David Fay, John Connell, John Lennon, Joyce, Ger, Tony, Seamus and all the instructors involved in all the different modules. I believe that success in the trucking industry will be easier to achieve because of this course and all the qualifications it has given me.
Thank you, to all involved. - Michael V Doyle
