I started working with ACE Driving School Cork in 2011 when I moved to Ireland. I love teaching and I love driving, so being a driving instructor is an ideal job for me!
Prior to being a driving instructor, I did a range of jobs including teaching people with visual impairment to use specialist software.

I retired from driver testing in 2012 with RSA at which point I began giving driving lessons as I found it very satisfactory in helping people not just pass their test but to prepare to drive safely for life.
Colm asked me to join ACE Driving School Cork and I took up his offer right away!

If you want to be the best you can be at driving, come to us at ACE Driving School Cork and we will get you there.

I also teach disabled drivers, do on-road driving assessments and teach people with hearing difficulties.
Thus helping to make ACE Driving School a fully inclusive driving school!.

I was very happy to have been asked to join ACE Driving School Cork. I ensure all my pupils feel relaxed and as comfortable as possible, particularly those just starting to drive.
I take pride in watching students progress with each lesson. I enjoy preparing pupils for the test, developing good driving habits and seeing happy faces when students pass their test. I believe driving is a valued life skill.

My AIM is to ensure every student is given the best quality learning experience while under my supervision. All students are afforded the opportunity & tools to advance their driving skills in a relaxed manner.

Qualified in 1978 - ADI 34794

I have about 12 years of experience teaching with the Department of Defence. I also have over 20 years professional driving experience

I'm qualified in cars  (Class B), cars/Jeeps and trailers (Class EB), trucks, rigid (Class C), and artics (Class EC).


I have only recently joined Ace Driving School Cork and I am looking forward to teaching you soon.





My name is Michael Griffin (Mikey), and whilst I only qualified as an ADI in 2015, I have over 40 years of driving experience.  I have driven in many different roles, including commercial and public service.


I joined ACE Driving School Cork in 2017. I think there is no better feeling than seeing a nervous beginner develop into a safe and confident driver. According to previous pupils being patient, calm and flexible are my trademarks.  I definitely love my new role as a driving instructor.
