Learning to Drive in Ashbourne

Our first lesson will consist of a 30 minute cockpit drill, before we even drive anywhere. This demonstrates both primary and secondary controls & will enable you to familiarise yourself with the car, which in turn will make you feel more relaxed. From the cockpit drill, we will move on to stopping & starting, and when you’ve mastered that, we will introduce something else. This will continue right up until the day that you pass your driving test at the Navan or Finglas Driving Test Centres!

We work with students from Ashbourne, and all over Co. Meath and North Dublin. We spend a lot of time getting you acquainted with the roads around the major test centres, both the outskirts and through built-up areas. This will allow you to build experience and confidence in both Urban and Rural driving environments.

When you learn to drive in Ashbourne, with Motorvate Driving School, you’ll be able to drive competently and confidently around the town and beyond. You’ll be familiar with the streets and layout around the Finglas or Navan test centres, and you’ll be confident that you can handle any aspect of the Driving Test Route.


P.S. Be warned these lessons are goin’ to be so enjoyable that’ll you’ll be left counting the days until your next appointment. . . 

N.B. All students are picked up before and dropped home after all lessons.

Preparing for your driving test in Navan or Finglas Driving Test Centres?

So you have a driving test coming up shortly in Navan or Finglas & you don’t know what to expect?

Don’t worry, we at Motorvate Driving School can help you to prepare for that big day. We offer area-specific Pre-test and Mock tests, for students who are about to take their Driving Test at the Navan or Finglas Driving Test Centres. If you’re not living close to the Test Centre, we can pick up and begin your lessons from your home. All of our lessons will take place on the roads around your chosen Driving Test Centre and its outskirts – the same roads used on the Driving Test Route!

Our first pre-test lesson will consist of an initial inspection of your car, just to see that it’s test worthy.  (Assuming you have your own but if not you can hire ours).

We will then check that your learner permit, road tax, insurance & NCT are all in date. Then we will double-check your test appointment, just to be sure.

When all this is complete, we will demonstrate the under the bonnet checks , secondary controls & explain in full what is expected from you as a driving test candidate.

For the remainder of the lesson we will let you drive in your own manner, and point out your faults as they occur – assuming it’s safe to do so.

Full written feedback is given at the end of every pre-test lesson.

When we feel you’re ready, and assuming you’ve given yourself enough time to prepare, we can begin doing mock driving tests to give you some indication as to how you will perform on the day.
