About Nolan Driving School

Welcome to Nolan Driving School, an independent Driving School offering first class Driving lessons and pre-tests at a realistic and affordable price. Nolan Driving School is owned and operated by John Nolan who is I.S.M certified, R.S.A registered and A.D.I (Approved Driving Instructor) approved and guarantees professional, friendly and patient instruction. John is working hard to build a solid reputation and is committed to each and every pupil. Our aim is to produce confident and safe drivers based on the principles of Defensive Driving:

Defensive Driving:

  • Awareness
  • Planning
  • Anticipation
  • Staying in Control
  • Driving with Responsibility
  • Driving with Care
  • Driving with Consideration and Courtesy

Nolan Driving School is located on the Walkinstown road in Dublin 12 and will provide lessons to most of South Dublin offering a door to door service. We cover the test centres at Tallaght, Churchtown and Rathgar and provide you with excellent test preparation. You may have to fit your driving lessons in to an already busy schedule therefore lessons are provided 7 days a week and can be booked at the following times (subject to availability):

Opening Hours:

  • Monday to Friday: 7:30am - 9:30pm
  • Saturday: 7:30am - 5:00pm
  • Sunday: 7:30am - 5:00pm

We also understand that you may need to cancel your lesson at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances which wont be a problem with a new appointment time rearranged. As we are an independent Driving School and not part of a franchise which can be costly to operate this saving is reflected in our price structure (see below). You therefore get quality Driving Lessons at an affordable cost. So if you are a complete beginner and nervous because you have never sat in the driver's seat before, no problem, or if your test is getting close and you want to prepare yourself properly, or any level in-between, look no further than Nolan Driving School.
