What our Customers Say about ISM
Just would appreciate it if you would pass on my congratulations on a job well done for hiring Dave McCormick my driving instructor. I don't usually bother with these type of emails but it just has to be said. He not only was disciplined in his teaching but most importantly I actually enjoyed it and was a lot more confident and relaxed going for my test which I passed with no problems. Because of him my wife would like to book some lessons with Dave when she returns from her holidays at the end of the month so she will be in contact with you soon, again, well done and please pass this mail to the relevant person as people seldom write emails to support people, more that ever to just complain so I hope this mail doesn't fall on deaf ears, he deserves a pat on the back (figure of speech) Thanks again and I will recommend ISM anytime I get the chance.
To whom it may concern,
" I have attended the c.p.c with I.S.M Dublin for the past three years, and i have found that they are about the best i have attended, and would advice that any 1 using I.S.M should look out for the instructor Barry Lyons, he keeps the class involved at all times. The place is clean, plenty of space in class, and all the staff are helpful at all times, and easy to find. "
To whom it may concern,
I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the Motorcycle Instructor Liam Foley for the tuition I received over the last eight weeks. When I started my lessons with Liam it was from a beginners perspective. If you look at the attached documents you will see that I have passed my test, first time around, and with no faults on my feedback sheet. This can only be attributed to Liams outstanding teaching and his ability to communicate in a positive and encouraging manner. I have had a wonderful experience learning from Liam and he has encouraged me, from the very beginning, to adhere to what he has thought me and to continue to improve my motorcycle riding skills using the knowledge and skills that he has given me. I have learned so much from Liam. He has always been very open and honest and has engaged with me at all times in a very professional but also friendly and relaxed manner. Returning for each lesson was always filled with excitement because I knew I was in safe hands from the very start and that I could rely on Liam for his support and intuition to keep me safe as we practiced on the streets of Finglas and the wider area. Liam has really kindled my love for motorcycles and I feel very confident that I can go on to reach a higher level of motorcycle competency with safety. My experience with Liam will always be remembered for its outcome and in particular the eight week journey I shared with Liam to get there. I have no hesitation recommending Liam as an instructor. I can only express myself in positive terms when I speak of my experience with him. I hope you value Liam like I have come too. Thankyou so much Liam.
I am writing this email to thank you for all your help & advice which led to me passing my driving test at the first attempt last week. From the start of my lessons with you you were patient & knowledgeable. You recognised where my weaknesses were & showed me how to overcome them. I think your assistance on the pre-tests was a big factor in gaining my licence. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is either learning to drive for the first time or trying to pass their test.
Again, thank you for all your help,
Thank you so much for teaching me to drive and for giving me the skills and confidence to pass my driving test first time. With every lesson I progressed so much and with your guidance,encouragement and patience I progressed into a safe and competent driver. For the special manoeuvres, I found your diagrams and notes to be brilliant because I could study them at home and practice between lessons. These proved to be invaluable in the weeks coming up to my test. I looked forward to all of your lessons. You made them all so informative, enjoyable and varied so as to cover every type of driving situation. Udo, you are a brilliant driving instructor. Always friendly and in such good form and very understanding of the learner drivers needs. You genuinely want your pupils to be safe and confident drivers for life. I am delighted to pass my driving test first time. I couldn't have passed the test without you.
Thanks a million,
I’m just writing to let you know that I passed my Cat A Motorcycle Test today on my first attempt…I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all your help since last August. I really found ISM to be a very professional business with extremely friendly and competent staff. As you know I did 99% of my training with Liam, and found him to be an amazing and dedicated instructor, not to mention a very nice person. Once again I thank you all for your help, I couldn’t of done it without you, and I hope you pass my message onto the ISM Directors\Managers also and know that I will highly recommend ISM to any of my friends/colleagues looking for any type of driving lessons etc.. I have been in touch with Liam and gave him all the news. I also told him I hope to come back around the end of May start of June just to do a general run out on the streets or by the coast to cover a few things I would like covered outside of Motorcycle Test syllabus etc. Thanks again for everything, I will be off to the track this summer to further my biking skills and experience :)
Eric, just wanted to say a massive thanks to you, John and Dave for the ForkLift Course I did last week. The staff, the way you get looked after, you couldn't really ask for better and I really appreciate all the help John and Dave gave us. They are the nicest people ever. Now I understand why you guys are better than the rest. You have very helpful staff, really really nice people and a really good setup. If I'm asked by anyone I'll send them to you guys again. To everyone at ISM a massive, massive thank you and I will see you Thursday.
I must say this. I have ever placed an order for something and had such great communication and speedy delivery before. As soon as my order was placed I received a phone call informing me that an item was not available at the time, but offered me a better solution. I received the package this morning, 3 working days ahead of schedule. I really really appreciate the professionalism.
I would like to thank my instructors on professionalism, because I got a lot of experience. I come from Croatian, my instructor gave me a lot of useful tips, in order to better understand commands in English.
Hi David PJ Mulhall here i would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the place on the HGV course your company ran trough FAS in partas in Tallaght.I thought it was run to the highest of standards and your instructors and tutors are of the highest standard. Tony in the classroom was exeptinoal at his job answering every question in full and with grate detail and took the time to make sure we understood all answers. He delivered the content of the course in such a way everyone understood the content. I found tony to be a very pleasant and patient tutor and he is fabulous at his job and would be very grateful if you could pass on my regards to him. Philip was my instructor in the lorry and i have to say i found him to be fabulous. He was very patient and very good at teaching us how to drive the truck. His instructions and patience with us was second to none even when we made silly mistakes. He is a first class instructor and cannot praise both Philip or Tony enough. I found yourself to be the same and any problems we had if any were delt with in a very professional manner. I would like to say i had a very pleasant experience and truly enjoyed my time on the course.Anyway the reason i wanted to send you this email is to let you know i have been approached by a local haulage company and have been offered a position to start in January as a driver once i have passed my test which i have no douth i will do thanks to yourself and your team. Once again a big thank you to you and your team and if you would pass on my thanks to Tony and Philip i would be grateful.I would like to say if ever i hear of anyone looking for lessons i will highly recommend they contact ISM as it is the best experience i have had in my driving career.
Kindest regards PJ Mulhall
To whom it may concern,
I am writing this in relation to the IBT Training I received this summer from the ISM. I passed 18 hours intensive training under the tutorage of Liam Foley. The course took place over three days , during which time I was transformed from a complete novice into a competent bike rider. The course was taxing on both the body and the brain. There was a lot to take in on the theory and the practicalities of driving a motor cycle. It was very satisfying to complete the course. Liam Foley was a superb trainer. I cant speak highly enough of his abilities. His attention to detail was top drawer and this really helped me to understand what it takes to drive a motorcycle. I have recommended him and the ISM to all my colleagues, friends and family.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at ISM involved in the making of the different YouTube videos you guys uploaded. I found them extremely helpful, and consequently I believe they played a big role in me passing my driving test!
I recently passed my ADI tests thanks to Eric. I found him very knowledgeable and up to date with the regulations and recent changes in the driving laws. He provided a very enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere, which made learning a pleasure. Eric was very professional throughout and covered everything I needed to know in order to pass my ADI tests. I would have no hesitation in recommending Eric to anybody interested in becoming an ADI.

Hi, My name is Carla Beattie and I recently had my driving test in Raheny after taking three pre-tests with John. I passed with no faults recorded on my sheet, and this was largely due to John's help during the pre-tests. He pointed out exactly what I needed to work on, and was great at building up my confidence and helping me feel more prepared.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to him, and to let you know that I'll be recommending the Irish School of Motoring to my friends who are still waiting to take their tests. It was definately money well spent. Thanks again!!!

Please can you let them I found them very professional and their vast knowledge really helped me – thank god I don't have to do it again! Please be advised I will be recommending your Tallaght office for any driving requirements.

I recently passed my Category D Test with ISM and I would like to take this opportunity to thank my coach instructor, Les Bryant. His instructional guidance was both informative & effective and his ability to set the state for learning is, in my opinion, invaluable. I completed a course of 10 hours with him last year & another 10 sessions this year leading up to my test, which I passed comfortably. In all the sessions, he helped create an environment that was conducive to productive learning. I would commend ISM on its decision to have an instructor of the calibre & professionalism of Les Bryant on its team.
Thanks & regards,

Just a quick note to say that recently I passed my driving test. Although I didn't learn to drive with the Irish School of Motoring I purchased the DVD Guide to passing the Driving Test which I found to be of great help in my learning to drive up to test standard. I also found your website of great benefit also.
So well done to John Walsh and Karl Walsh and the team in the I.S.M.

I just passed my driving test yesterday in Churchtown. I would like to inform you how happy I was with Kieran Mc Donough, he is a credit to your school!! He was a great instructor, very patient and has a very friendly approachable manner. I honestly believe Kieran got me to test level and built my confidence. I will be highly recommending Kieran to family and friends.

A map has such small print, it's impossible to safely read it while driving. If you are needing to find a specific address, write out the basic directions in large writing and short sentences, before you drive there. If you must read the directions (not the map) while on the road, do it where you are stopped.
