Our Training Centre

We are the only Driving School in Ireland that owns a Minibus Reversing Bay. Our purpose-built Training Centre is conveniently located next to the RSA Finglas Driving Test Centre and provides a safe and secure environment to off-side and near-side reversing.

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 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 01 864 1790 or email us your details to and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

ISM is the leading provider of systematic training programs to the Irish passenger carrying industry. Our client-base of trucking companies have found that they quickly recover the cost of our Training Courses in savings derived from greater fuel efficiency, reduced machine wear and improved safety.

Why Choose ISM?

If you are a Manager in a Transport Company, considering whether to send your employees for professional instruction, we can quickly give you all the details of industry-standard driver certification. ISM also provides you with the most comprehensive list of Training Aids to get you started.

We will tailor our courses to meet your specific needs, and we will guarantee that, when your drivers have finished an ISM course, they will have been exposed to a wide array of information, including the most modern driving techniques and current road legislation.
