About Mid Tipp Driving School
My name is John McGrath and I qualified as an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) in 2015. I trained in Dublin with a reputable and recognised ‘Train the Trainer’ driving tuition company. I passed all stages of the Road Safety Authority (RSA) assessments first time and subsequently the RSA issued me my ADI badge and certificate.
As a qualified driving instructor I’ve started small and to date the two learners I took on have completed their 12 Essential Driver Training Lessons (EDT Lessons), both of whom then followed on and passed their driving tests first time!
I’ve worked for a company for the past 15 years. My role involved driving to all parts of Ireland and the UK so I’ve built up a considerable amount of driving experience in all sorts of conditions (roads, towns, traffic, weather, etc.)
It’s now time for me to ramp up on driving instruction! So to begin with, I have call my driving school Mid Tipp Driving School. I’ve a comfortable modern car in place, complete with dual control pedals and fully insured.
If you choose to use Mid Tipp Driving School for driving instruction I will be drawing on all the valuable and most up to date training techniques I recently received and I can guarantee you my utmost attention to detail and make sure your success is my priority.

The Benefits of Eco Driving
What is Eco Driving?
Eco Driving is a term used to describe energy efficient use of vehicles. It is a great and easy way to reduce fuel consumption so that less fuel is used to travel the same distance.
In the last decades, engine technology and performance of cars has improved rapidly, while most drivers have not adapted their driving style. Eco Driving represents a driving culture which suits modern engines and makes best use of advanced vehicle technologies. Eco Driving offers numerous benefits, including Green House Gas emissions reductions, fuel cost savings, as well as greater safety and comfort.
There are many smart and safe driving techniques which can lead to significant fuel savings possibilities. The starting point for those willing to know more about Eco Driving are the Golden and Silver Rules of Eco Driving, which were defined by a European Consortium of driving experts in 2011. These rules include additional explanations which are directed at professionals.
Defensive Driving Tuition
Defensive driving is defined as "driving to save lives, time, and money, in spite of the conditions around you and the actions of others."
It is a form of training for motor vehicle drivers that goes beyond mastery of the rules of the road and the basic mechanics of driving. Its aim is to reduce the risk of collision by anticipating dangerous situations, despite adverse conditions or the mistakes of others.
Refresher Driving Lessons
Refresher driving lessons are ideally for drivers, who have passed their test and who want to improve their driving skills to drive safely and with confidence.
A typical candidate may have passed their test some time ago, and have not done much driving since passing.
Driving is a skill that can always be improved on, so if you would like to improve your driving ability, give me a call.
