Hello and welcome to my website.
My name is Kathleen Comerford and I am an RSA ADI Driving Instructor.

My Driving School

I set up Sunbury Driving School which is based in Dundrum, Dublin in 1999.
In that time I’ve had the honour and privilege of teaching and preparing thousand of drivers of all ages from 17 to 68 years to Pass their Driving Test.,

Beliefs & Values

I believe your Brain is the most important Safety feature in your car.

That is why I believe strongly in Driver Education and Road Safety, that knowledge is Power. Having a Qualification in Advanced Driving has enabled me to work with major companies training their fleet drivers in Risk Assessment and Safety.

I have also run Driver Ed programs in Schools for transition year students.

 

Author & Media

I am the author of two books on the Driving Test which are available to buy on the site.

101 Tips to Pass your Driving Test is an ebook & Pass your Driving Test in Ireland published by O’Brien Press.

I regularly contribute to the Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk in the “Ask the Expert” section about driving matters.

Vision

It is a dream come true for me to launch this unique online driving course that I created with the vision of Steering the Nation into Safer Driving Habits.

I have poured all my years of Experience and Wisdom into these courses to provide step by step guidance and support for learner drivers. These courses will help you to drive with greater clarity and understanding of road safety and prepare you fully to pass your driving test and drive safely for Life.

Goal

My Goal is to introduce DRIVER EDUCATION into our schools in Ireland. I firmly believe that teaching young drivers a Safer Driving Attitude and Skills before they sit behind a wheel of a car is a huge step in making our roads safer. The online course grew from that vision and now ALL learner drivers in Ireland can access online driver training and education from beginner to Test preparation. The more information a young driver knows the safer they are on the road.

Aspiration

I aspire to :

  • Educate and Motivate a Nation of Safe Drivers
  • To reduce the death rate on our roads by teaching Advanced Safer Skills to all road users.

Mission

My mission is to raise the Driving Test national average pass rate from 55% to 100%.   To help over 50,000 Drivers not to FAIL every year!

MAKING DRIVING SAFER BY CREATING SAFER DRIVERS

What Our Students Have to Say

Thanks again Kathleen for all your help with the driving over the last few weeks. I really appreciate it and I'm so happy I passed.
Shane
So happy to have passed my test first time in Rathgar Kathleen. Thank you for all your help and the mock test with Imelda really helped my nerves to settle.
Amy
Kathleen is a brilliant instructor. In just a few lessons she helped me change my driving from rushed and slightly erratic to relaxed and safe. There is no secrets or tricks to pass, just consistent advice on how to drive safely. I felt prepared and confident doing the test and it paid off! I've had a few instructors and none compared to Sunbury Driving school's. The Tester said my drive was the best he had seen all year! How amazing was that! Thanks a mill Kathleen and Imelda.

Having had plenty of lessons elsewhere I finally stumbled upon Sunbury and can honestly say that the first lesson I had with Kathleen is some of the best money I have ever spent. Kathleen puts you at ease, gives you a system to work with, and gradually changes the experience of driving from being stressful - to being manageable - to being comfortable - and finally to being enjoyable. After many years of dreading and avoiding it, I passed my test on my first attempt - and I couldn't have done it without the help of the team at Sunbury.
