Karen first contacted me way back in September when I did a 2 Hour Introductory Lesson with her and then didn't hear from her until mid December when she told me that she really wanted to try for her test in Tullamore. The amount of work and effort she put into each of her lessons was a credit to her. She worked really hard at trying to kick old habits and she did. The icing on the cake was this afternoon when she came out of the office with her well deserved full licence. Congratulations Karen. 

"Thanks so much for everything Ray. Having failed my driving test the first time it took me a while to work up the courage to do it again! So when I got my driving test date this time I decided to contact Ray and I am so glad I did. Ray is an excellent driving instructor who really goes above and beyond for his students. I'm delighted I passed my driving test and I couldn't have done it without his help and encouragement! I would highly recommend Ray to anyone, thanks again!" - Karen Kehoe.

When I first met Declan, he was a non driver. He showed a massive interest in wanting to do things right from the very start. After Declan completed his EDT Lessons, I didn't hear from him in a while until he rang me and told me that he had failed a driving test in Birr. I was shocked to hear that he had went there, considering he was doing all his training in Tullamore with me, but he was led by others who told him Birr was an easy town to pass the test. Unfortunately he learned the hard way. However, after getting back into training with me, Declan got his full licence this morning. Congratulations Declan and well done.


"Today was a big day for me. After I learned driving with Ray, I passed my driving test today. I was a real beginner of driving. Ray taught me lots of skills on how to be a good driver. i have to say, he is very good at his job. if you want to pass your driving test, he and his driving school would be a great choice. As a driving instructor, he is really really good. So i would  honestly tell you, if you want to learn how to  drive, he is the best. He can save you time to pass your driving test. Thanks Ray for the great teaching. if you want to learn how to drive, I would like to recommend Ray. he is a great instructor. Good luck to everyone. Thanks." -  Yuan (Declan) Yao.

A very intelligent and genuine guy. Caleb was an excellent student. He took his driving lessons very serious and made notes along the way to help himself remember various things. We had some good laughs along the way and this afternoon, all of Caleb's hard work and determination paid off when he came out of the office after passing his driving test on his 1st attempt. Congratulations Caleb and safe driving. You deserve it. Best of luck.


"I wouldn't know where to begin. I booked my driving test without any lessons whatsoever. After doing the introductory class, Ray got me to push my test out another month. Did 7 lessons including all the manoeuvres and a mock test the day before the test. I failed my mock test with Ray but he was very kind and only had the best intentions in mind. After knocking off my bad habits and telling me where I was going wrong, I passed the test first time round today. I could go on all day about Ray and how amazing he was. You just have to see for yourself. So don't think twice about giving him a ring. Gave him a massive hug walking out the test centre. Best teacher I ever had." -  Caleb Ajayi.

Arun has been with me from the very beginning and was always asking questions on every EDT Lesson which is what I love to hear because it tells me students really do take the driving test seriously. When I did the mock test with him yesterday, I knew unless there was a disaster, that he would pass his test 1st time today. Congratulations Arun. You worked hard for it. Best wishes for the future.

"Thank you Ray for being a very patient and excellent instructor who gave me the confidence and preparation I needed to pass my driving test! I felt at immediate ease with your friendly personality. I recommend 1 ROCK SOLID DRIVING SCHOOL and Ray to anyone searching for someone who is 100% dedicated to his students."

You could not meet a more genuine and sound fellow than Morgan. From the first time, I met him, I liked him from the start. We got on so well together throughout all of his EDT Lessons and every lesson was always a laugh. I couldn't have been more happier today to see him pass his test 1st time out. He worked really hard for it and was a pleasure to teach. Congratulations Morgan. Buy the Xbox One and we'll hook up online. Haha.

"I would like to thank Ray for all his expert help to transform me from a beginner with bad habits to passing my full license first time. Couldn't have done it without him. And for those thinking of getting lessons 1 ROCK SOLID is the place to come. Again thank you Ray very much". - Morgan Ferriter.

Ciarán had been with me from the very start of his EDT Lessons and I watched him grow in knowledge with each lesson. An absolute genuine, polite and well mannered young man who I always got on well with. I was absolutely over the moon for him today when he passed his test on the very 1st attempt. Not only was this a great Christmas present, but also a great birthday present for him. Congratulations Ciarán. Very well done.

"Just want to say a huge thanks to Ray for putting up with me over the last year and a half and for helping me pass my driving test 1st time. Would highly recommend Ray and 1 ROCK SOLID DRIVING SCHOOL to anyone starting to drive".

When I first met Amanda, she had told me that she did the driving test years ago and failed it. We actually started training in Portlaoise, but thought Tullamore would be a better structured town for the test. An excellent driver with many years experience, but very nervous. She must have said the term, "I am sick" so many times, that we laughed so much. I knew when I did her mock test yesterday, that unless there was an absolute disaster, that she would pass her test 1st time with me. I was really proud of her today, that she conquered her fears and just went and done it. Congratulations Amanda. Lovely lady who is also my neighbour.

"Absolutely fantastic teacher. You made me feel so relaxed and comfortable taking lessons. Having sat my test in Portlaoise years ago and failing, I was absolutely petrified of doing it again but you had every faith in me. I would highly recommend you to anyone who has a test coming up or anyone starting to drive. Thanks for believing I could pass today because I wouldn't have done it without you, and you'll never have to hear me say "I feel sick" ever again".
Amanda Hughes.

Despite the Dublin address, Adrian originally comes from Portarlington. I first met him way back in July this year and to give you the level of dedication this man gave to his lessons to get everything perfect for today took 20 lessons. Adrian really worked so hard for today, and I was so thrilled when he passed 1st time. Congratulations Adrian. A very polite and genuine young man who I wish all the very best of luck to for the future.

"Where other instructors failed, Ray succeeded. I didn't think in a million years I'd pass but Ray made sure of it. The personal interest he takes in each students success is unrivalled and gave me the confidence to do what I thought was impossible. Thank you Ray!" - Adrian Murphy.

I first met Michelle back in March of this year when she came to me as a new EDT student. A very pleasant and polite young lady whom I liked from the very beginning. Due to a very bad dose of flu which caused her to fail the mock test on Friday, Michelle came back fighting this morning and ready to give it everything she had. What an absolute joy it was to see her pass the test 1st time out. Congratulations Michelle and Merry Christmas.
