James Malone Clane Driving Academy

Each student is treated individually and every lesson is structured according to your strengths and weaknesses. James is one of very few driving instructors who takes notes by hand during your lesson. These notes are then passed onto each student so they can work on the areas they need to.
Clane Driving Academy also cater for nervous drivers. We know how daunting it can be to get behind the wheel for the first time. We promise to make it as relaxed as possible and never push you into a dangerous or stressful situation. We can take things as slowly as you like, to ensure you are 100% comfortable.

  After three failed attempts at the driving test with various instructors from the locality, a friend recommended James Malone for lessons. I made an appointment for my first lesson 2 weeks before my test and was pleasantly surprised at James' relaxed and thorough approach as a driving instructor. After a further few lessons, I felt confident in my driving abilities and the driving test route. I couldn't believe when the driving tester handed me back my test sheet showing that I had passed. I honestly owe it all to James' tuition and encouragement and only wish I had gone to him in the first place-it would have saved a lot of money and stress!! Thanks again James, really appreciate all your help!  


  I first done my test a yr an a half ago, the instructor i had was impatient and intolerant and my driving deteriorated. I decided i would do the test again and i started lessons with James, well!!!what a transformation...a complete contrast to my previous instructor. Patient, encouraging and comic i was at ease the moment he sat in my car. James is a born driving instructor and a peoples person, he adapts to anyone and instills confidence. i got a lesson each night the commencing week of my test and i passed with only two marks on my sheet. That was on thursday and i am quick to tell everyone i have passed my test BECAUSE of James, i am recommending him to everyone. five stars and if i could give more i would. Thank you so very much James i couldn’t have done it without you ;) 


  I have just passed my test and want to say a very big thank you to James for all his help. He is a brilliant instructor. I learned so much for him and would highly recommend him. He prepared me really well for my test. Thanks Again!
