"When Everything Seems Like An Uphill Struggle, Just Think Of The View When You Reach The Top"
Hello to all new students and a very warm welcome to
1 ROCK SOLID DRIVING SCHOOL and/or ACE-1-STOP Driving School.
2 Independent Driving Schools owned by both myself, Raymond O' Connor and my son David.
Originally from Newbridge, Co. Kildare, I married a wonderful Rathangan lady, Patricia, (Trish) on Friday 08 August 1997. We have 2 fantastic children, David & Katie, and we lived in Rathangan until August 2005, when we decided to move down to Portarlington, Co. Laois. They have supported me in this business since I left the Army in 2010 and now I'm encouraging my son David as a new Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) with his very own Driving School.

What We Believe In
What We Believe In
"Driving Is For Whole Life....Not Just A Test"
"To teach all students regardless of driving ability, the correct and safe way to drive on our nations roads, and to bring them to a standard that will not only be sufficient to allow them to pass their driving test, but that hopefully those skills will remain with them throughout the rest of their lives, and to one day protect both them and their own family from any serious injury or death"
VISION FOR ALL STUDENTS
Remember that the vast majority of accidents occur within 2 miles of the victims home as a result of familiarity breeding contempt. You must remain focused at all times until you are safely parked up and the engine switched off. Stay safe, stay alive.
