Learning to drive can be one of the most exciting times of your life, but it can also be one of the most nervewracking! It’s natural to feel nervous about getting behind the wheel for the first time, but it’s also important to remember that nerves can affect your performance on the road. We believe that every driving school has a responsibility to its learners to do everything they can to help calm these nerves, and build a new generation of safe and experienced drivers.
So how can we help you?
We’re a niche driving school that aims to offer an alternative driving lesson environment that can be difficult to find anywhere else - driving lessons for women, by women. We think that feeling comfortable with your driving instructor is one of the best ways to help you feel calm and confident on the road, and we understand that some women naturally feel more at ease with other women. For many, it’s about learning from someone who has ‘been there, done that’ in the male dominated role of driving.
It’s about drawing inspiration from skilled women drivers and becoming motivated.
Why We’ve Launched an All-Female Driving School
Quite simply, we’ve identified a gap in the market that we think it’s vital to fill. The driving sector in Ireland is evolving, and we’re at a point now where more and more women are learning to drive. There is a much greater demand for female driving instructors today, and we want to encourage and motivate women to gain this valuable life skill by offering a wider choice in driving instructor. Here are a few figures from the Central Statistics Office that make us believe we’ve made a great decision:
- Today, there are fewer men in the 20-29 age group in Ireland than women. However, this is also the age at which people are most likely to start learning to drive. More people in the 20-29 age bracket in Ireland hold learner permits than any other demographic.
- Women are more likely to drive to work than men, with 61.9 percent of employed women in Ireland driving on a daily basis, compared to just 53.5 percent of men. This shows that women are more dependent on vehicles for their careers, which is boosting female licence holders.
What Can We Offer You?
Although we strive to stand out from the crowd by offering driving lessons for women, by women, we also strive to offer the same quality of service you’d receive from a ‘traditional’ driving school. We want you to get the same quality of tuition, the same support and training, and the same valuable information and advice - but from a friendly and professional group of experienced female drivers. Here’s what all of our new learners can expect from our all-female driving school:
- ADI-Approved - All of our female driving instructors are either Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) that are registered with the Road Safety Authority (RSA), or hold a trainee licence which means that they’re completing on-the-job training and are currently studying for their Stage 3 ADI examination. You can check our credentials on the RSA register online here.
- Tuition & Support - We’re one of just a few driving schools in Ireland that offer comprehensive pre-test training, allowing you to get a feel of what it’s really like to take your test without being put on-the-spot. Our female driving instructors are dedicated and committed to providing the support you need to pass both the theory and practical tests.
- Friendly Instructors - If you’ve heard horror stories about driving instructors, there’s no need to worry. Our friendly female instructors are trained to take things at your own pace. We work to every learner’s individual experience level, and won’t try to rush you into performing maneuvers you’re not trained in. It’s like having a supportive friend in the car with you!
