Qualified as a Driving Instructor in 2005 - ADI 34663.

Hi there!

Just to introduce myself, my name is Susan Scannell and I live in a lovely part of the world in the Gaeltacht village of Baile Mhúirne near the Cork/Kerry border.

I am one of those fortunate people who can say I am doing a job I truly love in my role as an ADI.
I made the decision to join the ACE team in 2020 after numerous years providing driving tuition independently.
It's great to be part of such a wonderful team who are like minded and passionate about what we do. We offer an all inclusive non judgemental approach and welcome students from all walks of life.

No two days, no two clients are the same.

But my goal for each and every candidate I have the pleasure of working with, is the same, and that is, to equip everyone with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to make them into the best driver they can be.

I cover both Killarney,  Co. Kerry and  Wilton, Cork test centres.

Each of these centres definitely provide their own challenges for new drivers,  but with 16 years driver training experience under my belt I can provide the knowledge and training to get you test ready.

I believe my work is not simply to learn just to pass a test, it's about training candidates to become safe skilled drivers for life.
I afford all my learner drivers the opportunity to learn in a relaxed environment. I am aware that each driver needs to learn at his/her own pace. I will do this in a calm enjoyable fashion.
I am patient, friendly and enthusiastic, I love that I get to help people every day!

Whether it's the picturesque town of Killarney in Kerry or the busy Wilton area in Cork City you wish to prepare, I can help by utilising my extensive knowledge of both areas.

Every journey starts with a single step, take your first step in learning to drive with me!!

I've recently joined ACE Driving School Cork.
I Specialise in Automatic Car Driving lessons and I am an "ACE" Driving Instructor.
I became a Driving Instructor because I'm passionate to teach students to drive, especially people who find driving challenging or difficult.
I was once where you are now when I first started driving and thanks to the fantastic ACE Driving School Cork Driver Training Programme. I am now a Fully Qualified RSA-approved and registered Driving Instructor.
I have years of experience driving and I am extremely good with nervous pupils and can teach students the techniques to cope better with test day nerves.
I am easy-going and extremely patient and friendly and the lessons are relaxed and calm.
I love teaching people to drive, it's my passion, and there's nothing better than seeing pupils achieve their goals. I am easy-going and relaxed in my style and believe that learning to drive should be fun as well as focused. I welcome nervous drivers.
Learn with me and pass with confidence!
