Jimmy is an amazing driving instructor, he knows exactly how to teach the individual and will adapt if your learning style is different than others.

Couldn’t recommend Jimmy more, if you’re an anxious driver he is the perfect instructor to go with. I passed first time thanks to him. Every lesson was a laugh and I was instantly at ease when I met him - I can assure you you will be too! I’ll miss him now that the lessons are over!! He really is the best at what he does
Sarah Murphy | 17 Jul 2023
I couldn’t recommend Jimmy more!! After not being able to find a test date for clifden, I decided to go for westside and found Jimmy. This was one of the best decisions ever as I passed my driving test due to his advice - which saved me during my test! He is very positive which helped my confidence a lot which was crucial for the test. He is simply the best driving instructor!
Eabha | 13 Jul 2023
Jimmy is the most patient and passionate driving instructor really worked with me, it never felt like I was just in the car to get them done, he helped every time and was never too pushy if I was uncomfortable, I could not recommend Jimmy enough, I've already told everyone I know who is learning to go with him. Thanks again Jimmy!

With your guidance and patience you taught me the skills to become a safe driver.

Fiona | 27 Jun 2022
A massive thank you to Jimmy for helping me pass my driving test! There was never a dull day completing my driving lessons with Jimmy, it’s like driving around with your best friend. He is by far one of the best instructors in Galway. He always made me feel comfortable and confident in the car, and had a great sense of humour if anything didn’t go to plan :) I would highly recommend taking lessons with Jimmy as you’re guaranteed to have a very enjoyable experience.
Eileen Cullen | 09 Jun 2022
Having never sat behind the wheel before I met Jimmy, he gave me the confidence and skills I needed to pass my test the first time around. Each lesson was suited to my ability, and I always came away with practical and achievable advice. Although I anticipated that learning to drive would be a stressful experience, with his encouragement and sense of humour, Jimmy made it thoroughly enjoyable. I couldn't recommend him enough!
Mairéad Fallon | 08 Jun 2022
Jimmy is the best driving instructor I’ve ever had, so calm and makes every lesson fun! He never put a doubt in my mind that I wasn’t able to pass even when I taught I would do terrible!

I did lessons with Jimmy, found him very easy going and took all my mistakes in his stride. Jimmy was a great knowledgeable instructor with a lot of patience. Did the test using Jimmys car and passed. Would recommend him to all.
dave | 07 Jun 2022
Driving with a Jimmy is like driving with your best friend. Jimmy is an incredible instructor who is kind and patient and encouraging to no end. There’s no one I would rather learn to drive with. I cannot recommend Jimmy enough as an instructor. He makes learning to drive a fun and enjoyable experience. Even when I had bad days (and everyone does) he kept me laughing and driving.
Emma Ní Chatháin | 17 Apr 2022
Jimmy is an excellent instructor, effortlessly put me at ease with each lesson and was able to give constructive feedback throughout, as well as very entertaining conversation. I can't recommend him enough.
Billy Stewart | 02 Mar 2022
Jimmy truely is the best driving instructor ever! He always made sure that I was comfortable and relaxed behind the wheel which made me very confident driving and was never nervous getting into the car. Not only was his teaching perfection but we also had a laugh in every lesson which made me look forward to our lessons even more. I can't recommend Jimmy enough, he is so trustworthy and has become a great friend of mine and to my family after helping my mom and I past our tests! I can't thank him enough.

Ali | 16 Feb 2022
Would thoroughly recommend Jimmy, a very patient and helpful instructor.
Dinny Ó hÉallaithe | 02 Feb 2022
I could not recommend Jimmy for driving lessons more. From the start, he makes sure its a comfortable environment to learn in with the addition of a laugh and a bit of craic in every lesson. I had Jimmy for both my 12 EDT lessons and pre-test lessons, and managed to pass my test first time with no car of my own to practice on outside of lessons. I can't thank him enough!
Bronagh | 26 Jan 2022
I would 100% recommend Jimmy for driving lessons. He made me feel really comfortable and relaxed, he was very calm and never gave out when I made mistakes. I really enjoyed the lessons as we always had a laugh together.

Orla Geoghegan | 19 Dec 2021
Highly recommend, jimmy is a top man he is one the nicest I have met. There is no doubt he will have you ready for your test and pass it with flying colours. He isn't like most instructors grumpy and shouting or makes ya nervous. Jimmy makes you comfortable behind the wheel and if you make a mistake he takes the piss out of ya with humour which goes a long way. Top quality service, advice and price. I passed my test the first go all thanks to Jimmy.
Laurence Maloney | 02 Dec 2021
Where to start! Jimmy is a wonderful instructor and offers feedback every step of the way and really puts your mind at ease. Always great banter to be had and he has great patience, which may have at times been needed. Highly recommend to my colleagues (we should discuss a refer a friend discount ) and to anyone looking to pass their driver test!
Sinead | 24 Nov 2021
Have to say, from lesson 1 everything just felt so easy working with Jimmy. Lessons are extremely enjoyable, the man is an absolute delight! Would highly recommend him to anybody who’s starting to learn to drive! Going to miss my chats with the man!
Seán Devers | 15 Nov 2021
I would recommend Jimmy Conlon as an instructor for beginners as he is very helpful to new drivers and shows excellent techniques to help improve your driving skills and is always available for lessons
Eoghan O Fatharta | 10 Nov 2021
Just passed my tests after learning how to drive with Jimmy. He was a brilliant and patient instructor and i've already recommended him to so many of my friends! He's so friendly and kind, and as daunting as driving was at the start he made it easygoing and enjoyable. If youre looking for driving lessons around Galway then Jimmy is definitely a great place to do so.
Emma Hartigan | 03 Nov 2021
I learned all my essential driving tips from Jimmy and he taught everything in a way that was easy to understand and more importantly, easy to remember. I couldn't have gotten my licence without him, thank you Jimmy!
Glenn | 01 Oct 2021
I passed my driving test on the first go and I have Jimmy to owe for that ! Very patient, and fun, and understanding. I not only passed the test but I also feel I've become a better driver thanks to him ! Thank you so much Jimmy ! I'll miss the lessons !
Maria | 26 Sep 2021
I would highly recommend Jimmy to anyone who wants to drive. He brought me through a step by step process over the lessons and helped me pass first time. Driving with Jimmy made me less nervous and it helped quite a bit. We had good craic during the lessons and I thoroughly enjoyed his lessons. Thanks Jimmy.
Frankie Mc Hugh | 21 Sep 2021
Enjoyed every lesson with Jimmy in an incredibly supportive and enjoyable environment. Very accommodating and patient too! Was able to learn the rules of the road and good driving habits in a way that they stayed with me and got me through the test first time.
Becky Ni Eallaithe | 01 Sep 2021
Would highly recommend no1schoolofmotoring to anyone beginning to drive. Top class lessons and a great car to learn in. When your finished with Jimmy you’re 110% ready for your test.
Nicky Pfeiffer | 27 Aug 2021
Jimmy - The patience of a saint, and one of the funniest people I've met. I, once a very nervous driver, passed first time with the help of Jimmy. He is completely professional, an expert at his job and you don't realise how much you're learning with him as he makes it so fun and enjoyable until the day of the test. I would recommend Jimmy to anyone for lessons.
Mairéad | 09 Aug 2021
Since I started driving with Jimmy, I felt nothing but my comfort, confidence and skills in driving improve immensely. From day one, it was clear Jimmy was the best you will find in the business, from him being not only nice but also making the lessons fun and enjoyable, taking the nerves and anxiety away from the entire learning experience. I’m glad to say I passed the first time solely thanks to Jimmy’s advice, support and confidence in me.
Aine | 27 Jul 2021
Couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor than Jimmy, He's friendly, patient and always makes you feel comfortable and confident on the road. I highly recommend Jimmy to anyone starting out or looking to improve their driving. Passed my test last week, couldn't be happier with my experience.
Niamh Ni Fhlatharta | 09 Jun 2021
I done my lessons with Jimmy and was beyond satisfied with his level of expertise. Jimmy took me from a beginner driver all the way to being able to pass my test first time. We had plenty of craic along the way and was never a dull moment. Overall it was a great experience learning from Jimmy and I would recommend Jimmy to anyone looking to get their test out of the way first time of asking!!
Robbie | 08 May 2021
Just passed my test, after completing 12 lessons with Jimmy. Could not recommend him enough. He's super patient and made the lessons fun.
Rachel Minogue | 26 MAR 2021
Jimmy is a fantastic instructor & I would recommend him to anyone! Jimmy successfully teaches you the rules of the road and how to be a safe and various driver in a fun and enjoyable manner. Thank you Jimmy :)
Nicole Murray | 08 MAR 2021
I heard of Jimmy from a good mate and after my first lesson, I knew I had found the right instructor! Jimmy is a consummate gentleman, professional in every way and kept me on the straight and narrow. He made sure I didn't develop any bad habits and oh my, I tried! We arranged a few double lessons and a few mock tests which were invaluable in my preparations for the real test and I am delighted to report, I passed today! (first attempt) I have no hesitation in recommending Jimmy for your EDT sessions. Thanks a million, Jimmy, you are a star!
Chris Loughnane | 17 Nov 2020
Jimmy is an absolute legend, he makes you feel confident behind the wheel. During the lessons you have a bit of banter with class A instruction. Passed the test with flying colours on the first attempt, couldn't thank him enough for all his help. Highly recommended, no need to look any further than here. Thanks again for everything Jimmy.
Brian Heneghan | 17 Nov 2020
Jimmy is one of the best instructors out there,, great teaching method and calm manner that instills confidence 'passed on my first test' never thought I'd get there' but after a few double lessons with Jimmy I did, 5 stars :)
Laura | 30 Oct 2020
If you're looking for driving lessons in Galway, Jimmy is your man! He is absolutely brilliant. Not only is he a great instructor but he also is such a lovely person and makes the lessons feel very relaxed! Thanks for all of your help Jimmy!
Áine Mellin | 08 Sep 2020
Absolutely brilliant instructor so easy going and patient. Jimmy makes you feel so relaxed and confident when driving and the lessons were so so enjoyable and great craic. Passed the test first time. Would highly recommend!! Thanks Jimmy :))
Blanca | 29 Sep 2020
Learning to drive and in my case ‘eventually’ plucking up the courage to sit my driving test can be the most nerve-racking experience of your life. I can honestly say if it wasn’t for Jimmy I would never have gotten from day one of never having driven a car to the day that I’m now a proud owner of my full driver’s licence. His patience, kindness, understanding and overall expertise brought me from a shaking nervous wreck to becoming a confident driver and passing first time was an extra bonus! His support and level of teaching at every stage was beyond amazing. And not forgetting the many many laughs and endless craic we had on our journey along the way. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Whatever stage you’re at, be it a complete novice to a driver who needs to get rid of bad habits Jimmy Conlon is your only man.
Gráinne Ní Chonghaile | 12 Sep 2020
Not only is Jimmy a brilliant driving instructor ,the lessons were so enjoyable and I always felt at ease ! Couldn’t recommend him enough !!
Anna Smyth | 24 Aug 2020
Where do I even start!! Jimmy is nothing but the greatest instructor you could have. He’s patient, funny and of course the perfect teacher of driving and road safety. No matter how nervous and new you are in regards to driving your confidence won’t be long shooting up with Jimmy helping you as he puts you at ease with his easy going and fun personality. And as someone else mentioned in these reviews, his sayings and instructions are still stuck in my head! Thank you Jimmy for everything!!
Paul Griffin | 13 Aug 2020
Couldn’t recommend Jimmy enough! He was so helpful, encouraging and easy going.
Sally Minogue | 09 Aug 2020
If carlsberg could do driving instructors ....... need I say any more...! I was very anxious and nervous about driving. Jimmy was the perfect driving instructor for me. He put me at ease straight away with his friendly and funny manner. He quickly identified what type of learner I was and got me driving without overloading me with the technical information of driving . Even now I have Jimmy’s sayings and advice in my head when I am driving. He is an excellent teacher and instructor and has the patience of a saint !! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jimmy no matter what stage of driving you are at. I sincerely want to THANK YOU Jimmy for giving me my independence and getting me on the road. #no1drivinginstructor
Karen Moriarty | 20 Jan 2020
I came to Jimmy after failing my test two years ago with a different instructor in Dublin. I hadn't properly driven since then and had picked up bad habits. Jimmy instructed me to apply for a test date after my first lesson with him. In the six weeks that I did lessons with him I improved immensely and passed for the first time in Galway. He is an excellent instructor and would highly recommend.
Ellen Murray | 04 Dec 19
Passed my test fist go, cannot ask for any more then that!! On top of that Jimmy is friendly patient and professional. Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Conor Daly | 04 Noc 19
The first day of lessons I was very nervous. I had picked up many bad habits over the years. Within a few minutes of meeting Jimmy who is a gentleman, I was at ease. He was very patient & encouraging and gave me the confidence to keep going even when I made mistakes. He made it a really positive experience. I went on to do my test last week which I felt fully prepared for thanks to Jimmy. I passed 1st time. A big thank you to No 1. School of motoring.
Therese | 03 Nov 19
I highly reccomend Jimmy. He is an excellent instructor and very friendly. You feel relaxed driving with him, especially if you are the first time driver. I have passed from my driving est from the first trial from Jimmy's hard work.
Mustafa Ali | 03 Nov 19
Went for a full driving assessment ahead of a job interview which required advanced drivers. Jimmy assessed my driving, gave me afew tips and pointers on what to work on and I got the job. I'm certain that without Jimmy's expertise, I wouldn't have got it. Could not recommend more!!
Colin Kelly | 30 Sep 19
Jimmy is absolutely fantastic. I have recommened him to so many of my friends since passing my test. He definitely knows his stuff and if you are at all nervous about starting out I think he's the only man for the job. Genuinely makes you feel like a friend of his which makes learning how to drive fun! Five stars Jimmy! Thank you
Cliodhna Hartigan | 08 Sep 19
I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Jimmy. He truly is a fantastic teacher. I learned something new with every lesson. His years of experience mean that he knows everything driving related like the back of his hand. His explanations and instructions are easy to follow. He's also a kind, genuine man who knows how to make a joke and make a person feel at ease. I enjoyed our lessons and the whole experience of learning to drive. And it is him that I have to thank for helping me pass my test. Over the course of a few months I was test ready and I now feel confident behind the wheel. If I had to learn again I'd learn with Jimmy.
Shane Callinan | 28 Aug 19
I passed my test first go on the 15th of August and I definitely could not have done it without Jimmy’s help and guidance. Not only has he a brilliant sense of humor and makes driving lessons fun, he takes you out of your comfort zone which is important when driving. Jimmy always has words of encouragement to help with the nerves and I definitely had a lot of nerves throughout my lessons. I was well prepared for my driving test as Jimmy talked me through the test routes and went over aspects of the test to ensure I was confident in my knowledge going in to the test. I’d recommend Jimmy to absolutely anybody who is looking for driving lessons, he has a lot of experience as an instructor and it stands to him through his work.
Natalie Ward | 16 Aug 19
Jimmy is the best instructor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Was referred by a friend. Lessons were relaxed and never rushed, builds your confidence v fast and you progress at a good pace. I did 7 lessons with him and passed my test 1st time. Couldn't have done it without him. THANK YOU JIMMY!
Garreth Smith | 06 Mar 19
I did my pre-test lessons with Jimmy and passed my test today! He is an excellent teacher and I was well prepared for any possible route I had to do thanks to him. Jimmy gave me so much confidence over only 2 weeks and he was there for a much needed chat both directly before and after the test. I couldn’t have done it without him, I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks again!
Laura | 16 Jan 19
Jimmy is an excellent teacher, very patient, thorough and relaxed. I was very nervous when I start driving and had very little confidence that I could learn. I had tried classes with other instructors but had made no progress. However after a set of classes with Jimmy I could see that my driving was improving steadily - his calm approach really works! In the end, I managed to pass my test on the first attempt. Thank you Jimmy!
Nuala | 14 Jan 19
Very easy to learn from Jimmy.You learn quick and fast. Great experience, would highly recommend No 1 School of Motoring
Gearoid Duggan | 12 Jan 19
I completed my 12 lessons with Jimmy and passed my test on my first attempt. I learned quickly from Jimmy’s clear instructions and my driving improved rapidly. Overall I was very happy with the service I received.
Chris Collins | 11 Jan 19
I did all of my lessons with jim and passed my test first time thanks to jim. Great instructor! Made me feel so comfortable driving! Learned alot from him. He made learning to drive enjoyable! Great laughs with this man! Thanks a million Jim!
Noel Griffin | 10 Jan 19
I began my lessons with a different instructor and continued with him until the exam, which I did not pass. It was at the suggestion of a friend that I give Jimmy a try for my next exam. That was the best advice I have ever been given. Jimmy has a very calming demeanour and has some great techniques for anxious or unsure drivers, he quickly corrects bad habits, laughter being his most successful tool. I firmly believe without Jimmys advice, support and confidence in my driving ability, I wouldn't have been as relaxed as I was in my next exam. Jimmy has a keen perception on how identify to solve physical and mental barriers, making him a perfect instructor for anyone looking to improve their driving or anyone looking to go into an exam with confidence that you've had the best possible driving education and advice. After only a few lessons with Jimmy I passed my next exam, first time. Wish I'd come to him first! God Bless! Thank You Jimmy!
Brianna Williams | 19 Feb 18
Jimmy helped me pass the test after previously failing it, he was a brilliant teacher and he really improved my confidence behind the wheel, Would 100% recommend him!
Daire Davoren | 07 Feb 18

Thomas Hepworth | 5 Sep 17
I started to take lessons with Jimmy one month before my driving test. Jimmy was an excellent instructor. I had taken lessons before and found them very stressful, but Jimmy made the lessons fun and really put me at ease.
Kate G | 07 May 17
Could not find a better man for the job! Jimmy made the lessons very enjoyable and comfortable (handy for us nervous drivers!). He is the reason I passed my test FIRST TIME and was the only one who had faith I could do it! I could not recommend highly enough, in fact he is the only person I've recommended to all of my friends and family. Jimmy is certainly the guy for the job!

Kathleen Clancy | 27 Jan 14
I really enjoyed my lessons with Jimmy as he's a friendly guy whose good fun to be around with. He's a great instructor and so I've learned a lot from him. I wouldn't have passed my test without him!
Ronan Burke | 16 Jan 14
Had never sat behind the wheel before my lessons with Jimmy but he puts you at ease straight away. His tuition gave me a lot of confidence on the road and you'll quickly overcome any obstacle with his advice. His preparation for the test, both theory and practical, are excellent so nothing surprises you on the day. Jimmy himself is great craic and even two hour lessons fly by with him in the car.
Padraic O Ciardha | 14 Jan 14
Words cant describe how good Jimmy is at getting you ready for the test. He was just amazing at teaching you everything you need to know. Hes so calm and you never feel nervous driving around even when your starting off. I looked forward to every lesson because not only was I learning but I had the craic too. I couldnt recommend him enough to everyone. I was only driving for a few months and after his lessons I passed my test on the first go. Hes a great driving instructor.
Catherine O' Flaherty | 13 Jul 13
Jimmy is a lovely guy who takes the nerves out of learning to drive. He provided me with the skills I needed to pass the test and more importantly the confidence to know I could do it. I would not hesitate recommending him.

Jimmy is a star! If a bag of nerves like me can learn to drive and pass their test, anyone can! I dont think there is another instructer out there who would have made me feel so confident and at ease while driving. Jimmy is such a funny, lovely man and is no.1 in what he does! He was reccommended to me through a friend I will continue to reccomend him to mine. Thanks Jimmy!
