Dont’t take our word for it – here’s what our students say:

If I could give more stars I would. What a fantastic driving instructor! I had the opportunity to do my last six EDT lessons with Mr.Griffin. I passed the driving test first time this week with just six months driving experience. Michael has a great way of teaching and I always felt calm and relaxed when on a driving lesson. Such a gentleman and was always very accommodating with lessons. Would highly recommend Michael for driving lessons. Thank you so much Michael and Nicola. Best wishes, Fiona.

I couldn’t recommend MN Phoenix enough. I had 3 lessons with Michael after completing my EDT lessons with Aviva before completing my test. He was so patient and calming while in the car. He gave me lots of tips and I wouldn’t have passed it without him. Nicola was also very professional and fitted me in last minute for the lessons. I passed first time and I would highly recommend them to anyone applying for their driving test.

Both my wife and I passed the EDT on our first attempts thanks to Michael. He is the best driving instructor in Cork! Patient enough to answer all our silly questions and correct our mistakes, an inspiring, friendly, encouraging but at the same time professional man. It was good craic to know Michael and Nicola. I will remember the real life examples and stories for almost every occasion 🙂 Thank you.
