Our Happy Customers

I cannot thank Padraig enough. I have passed my driving test today, with all his guidance, support and patience. I wasnt always the easiest person to teach but he built my confidence and had faith in my abilities, which counted for a lot. He is very friendly and calm. Not only is he a fantastic instructor but we had a laugh along the way I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good instructor. Thank you again.


Massive thanks to Padraic for all his help. His patience and encouragement throughout the process was second to none! Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Thanks again.


I would highly recommend Padraic. He is an excellent instructor with great communication skills and pays close attention to every detail. His driving tips were of great help for me to pass my driving test.


Would highly recommend O’ Connor’s Driving School, Pádraic was an excellent instructor who helped me build my confidence in driving. I found taking lessons with Pádraic very helpful, he remained calm throughout and was very reassuring. He made sure I knew every street in Castlebar and had me well prepared to take my test and pass. Even during a pandemic when there’s so much going on he would check in regularly to see how I was getting on. Cannot thank him enough.

Rang Padraig on a Friday, urgently as I had got a cancellation. Never drove in castlebar before, I explained this to Padraig, he had me doing a lesson first thing Monday morning, brought me to every place possible, went through everything thoroughly and I passed my test first time on Wednesday after a couple of hours with Padraig. Very obliging and respectful man too.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND O'connor's Driving School. During my experience with Padraic - the Driving instructor, I've learned a lot from him. He is very calm, patient, and he will really encourage you to make things right without putting pressure on you. He is very helpful and will correct your mistakes straight away. There's 3 things you need to know when you go for O'connor Driving school, 1) LISTEN, 2) TAKE A DEEP BREATH WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE, and 3) LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES.
Over all, he will make you a better driver. That's for sure.
