Instructor Trainer & Driving Coach

driving instructor training

I chose Colm following some research online for suitable instructors who train and coach new Driving instructors. I found his teaching style to be a revelation and have adapted it into my teaching. His style encourages the pupil to participate and identify their own shortfalls. I would certainly recommend Colm for his patience, unique style and experience.

I recently had sessions with Colm Branigan to prepare me for the Stage Three Instruction Ability Test for the ADI. He was highly recommended to me by a friend. The sessions were hugely beneficial to me in my preparation for the test. I did the test at the Rathgar Test Centre. I have to say that I found the role play difficult but the practice I had with Colm paid off. I got through the test reasonably well and I was over the moon when I got the letter in the post from the RSA about 10 days later stating “Passed”. I got 80.5 marks out of 100 which I was delighted with. A lot of credit to Colm as I don’t think I would have passed first time without his very professional help.

driving instructor training

I chose to meet Colm Branigan because of the great reviews online. His style of teaching is both inspiring and extremely effective. He listened carefully to me and paid real attention to my training needs. His coaching approach meant that tonnes of learning took place and I use many of his methods in my own lessons, with great results. He has a great way of getting the learner to help themselves, which makes my job as an instructor so much more effective and enjoyable. I would highly recommend him for any ADI no matter how experienced. Exceptional trainer.

I would just like to thank you for your help with my ADI training. I was really prepared for the tests after your lessons. The only problem I have is thinking about all the money I wasted with one of your competitors. I will recommend you to anyone I know who is becoming an ADI. I will give you a call when my check test is coming up for a refresher lesson.
