Michael Whelan is an approved professional driving instructor with over 25 years driving experience. Holding a current licence as an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) RSA-Adi number F35509 with the Road Safety Authority (RSA) qualified with Driving Instructor Register of Ireland (DIR), and is a member of the Irish Driving Instructors Association (IDIA) and the (DIAI) Driving Instructors Association of Ireland.

Michael´s patience, friendly support and encouragement will put even the most apprehensive student at ease during their driving lessons. When taking his last legally required refresher test for qualified driving instructors he got a distiction for ´Driving Instruction Skills´. His coaching methods will build up knowledge and confidence during the lessons.

RSA Approved Driving School of Motoring Swords is committed to teaching safe and controlled driving skills. All driving lessons are carefully planned and structured to meet the needs of every individual student.

Driving lessons are available from total beginners to pre-test and beyond for those who want to improve their driving skills further e.g. night time driving, motorway driving and many more (you must have a full driving licence to carry out driving lessons on a motorway).

Students can either use the school´s vehicle for driving lessons, a brand new 2012 registered Ford Fiesta, with dual controls and all mod cons such as air-conditioning, power steering etc or choose to drive in your own car for your driving lessons.
