Operating since 2001, Carraigh Dubh Driving School (CDD) is owned and operated by Mick O’Brien. Based in Tower, CDD covers all of the Cork city area including the surrounding suburbs, from Glanmire to Glounthane, Ballincollig to Ballinhassig. mick o'brien image

From 2001 until 2006, CDD operated a franchise with the Irish School of Motoring, Irelands oldest driving school.  Mick has worked with a wide range of pupils, from beginners learning to drive, to those who were preparing for their driving test and needed to be shown their test areas. He has evaluated fleet drivers for national companies to determine insurance risks, as well as offering guidance to those who had obtained a full license but perhaps have moved in from a different area and needed to be shown some of the roads around Cork.

The pace of lessons are determined by the ability, comfort and confidence of the customer, but Carraigh Dubh Driving are sure that within a structured 10 lessons, we can teach customers how to become a competent qualified road user.

Mick lives in Tower with his wife and 3 children.
