Customer Review from Coillte Land Solutions Sept 2018

The Commercial Team in Coillte chose Colm Branigan as he came highly recommended to us. Each of the participants found Colm’s style of coaching to be clear, concise and overall we all benefited from our training days.

Colm brings a unique style to his driving course making the driver feel at ease while at the same time giving little tips on how to improve the driving experience.

I would highly recommend Colm to other companies who wish to give their employees a new outlook on driving.

Customer Review from Music Generation August 2018

We chose Colm as after looking at the services that other instructors were providing, Colm offered the best level of customer service on every level – detailed account of what would be covered, thorough approach to listening to the reasons why we wanted to undertake the advanced driving course, assurance of  comprehensive reporting, flexibility to accommodate availability, preferred location and very good value for money.

We found Colm’s style of coaching highly effective – he put us at our ease but challenged us in a positive and encouraging way. A huge amount of material and tasks were covered in the 2-hour session but in a very paced and engaging way. Colm has a great way of explaining things clearly and helping you to apply them in the moment so they are understood.

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Colm – excellent customer service, high quality of service tailored to the organisation and individual’s needs, extremely thorough approach to assessing driving capabilities of the customer in an enabling and motivating way and most importantly for us, the learning has improved driver awareness for safety.

Customer Review from Mary Montaut August 2018

I was delighted with my advanced driving lessons, which I found genuinely refreshing and helpful.  I have been interested in taking some advanced driving for a long time and my husband very kindly found Colm’s name online and he booked me a session for my seventieth birthday.  

I was naturally a bit nervous about receiving driving instruction after driving cars continuously for over forty years since my original lessons and test; but Colm set me at ease very rapidly with his kind and attentive manner and his gentle approach.  I found it easy to talk with him – it turned out that we are both dog lovers – and when it came to asking me questions about road signs and so on, I was quite confident to answer, and to tell him if I did not know the answer, which is much more to the point.

Since my lesson with Colm, I have found myself much better able to concentrate fully on my driving.  I use the car daily, both on motorway and country lanes, and I feel that his instructions were very useful.  The need to look to the furthest point in the road, to see as much as possible and to take my time in deciding the best course of action, have enabled me to be more attentive all round.  I was also very pleased to learn a more modern driving technique than the one I learned back in the late 1960s – in particular, the ‘brakes to slow, gears to go’ mantra which I now use instead of changing gear down to slow the car.  I find myself more confident on cornering, and indeed enjoy the feeling of the responsiveness of the car on the road.  I also benefit from the ‘change of mind set’ which he recommended.

I felt that the lesson was very well tailored to my personal needs, and I appreciated the attention which he gave to my driving, even while he did not make me feel in the least ‘judged’ or intimidated.

Colm will be amused to learn that I remind myself aloud about ‘stale’ green lights as well.  He said that commentary driving is a further step, and I feel I would like to do that someday.  I guess I am loquacious enough anyway!

I would most certainly recommend Colm Branigan as a driving instructor.

July 2018 - Customer Review

“My solicitor suggested that I attend an advanced driving course as a result of a pending driving conviction, having searched online for providers I found Colm and his website looked very professional and detailed and looked to be exactly what I needed.

I found Colm incredibly easy to learn from and he was very patient. He explains things well using good examples and all of the material is extremely relevant to day-to-day driving.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Colm’s advanced driving lessons to anyone, and I feel that they are very worthwhile for various reasons. My attendance was originally out of necessity but I enjoyed the session thoroughly and learned a lot. I would recommend that anyone looking to sharpen up their driving skills or drives in a professional capacity strongly consider doing one of these training courses.”

April 2018 - AIG Consults with Colm Branigan

Ireland’s roads have never been busier, we are at capacity on many roads around the country and way over it on the M50 surrounding the capital. This means driving has never been more of a challenge. So, we thought we would ask experts for some advanced driving tips that may help you become a smarter driver and get where you are going safe and sound.

Advanced and defensive driving are terms that are sometimes confused so we asked driving expert Colm Branigan from Advanced Driving Ireland for his definitions.
