Pretest Driving Lessons and Driving Test Car Hire for Raheny Driving Test Route

Pinnacle Driving School

The Raheny Driving Test Route is a quieter route than Finglas though both have similar pass rates with 47%. Parking outside can be tricky so it is best to arrive early to find a good suitable spot that is easy to leave from. The main routes involve mainly doing the maneuvers in St Anne’s Park which also has an abundance of mini-roundabouts. It is important that each of these should be treated in the same way as any other roundabout with the correct signals on approach and leaving.

Around the Raheny Driving Test Centre and the area down towards Clontarf, the roads become narrower with sometimes only sufficient room for one vehicle to pass. Good reaction to hazards is needed as is the use of the LADA (Look Assess Decide Act) Technique so that obstructions are dealt with in a safe and timely manner. In these areas, there are also quite a few speed ramps and again each should be treated as a hazard by slowing down, dropping gear if necessary, and going over them at a smooth adequate pace.

There are also a few places where you will need to move into a right-hand lane to turn right. You will again need good use of the Mirror Signal Manoeuvre (Position Speed Look) technique with a good check of the right mirror on approach as well as just before entering the new lane, no matter how quiet you think it is.

If you have a Driving Test date it is advisable to book a Pretest lesson early so as to give more time to correct any faults. Most people will need at least 3 lessons. Lesson 1 will be spent fixing any faults and telling you everything you need to know to pass the test as well as practicing the reverse around the corner, hill start and turnabout.


Lesson 2 will be a mock test where the instructor plays the part of the tester and conducts a full test from start to finish. It will be like an actual test where the Instructor will not chat or give feedback during the test but will mark and make a note of everything and give feedback once finished. The aim is to give you an idea if you would pass or fail, highlight any areas you need to work on, warn you of the severity of different faults that you may not have deemed important as well as giving some experience of driving under Driving Test conditions.
