The Swilly Group delivered the Occupational Driver Training Programme on behalf of Dublin City Council from 2011 through 2014. 

This service involved a classroom seminar followed by a practical assessment and advanced driving training in the various Dublin City Council service areas around Dublin.  Advanced driving tuition was delivered to over 1,000 occupational drivers within Dublin City Council over a 3 year period.

Advanced driving tuition was delivered in a wide range of vehicle categories such as cars, vans, jeep and trailers, work vehicles, rigid and articulated trucks. 

All Swilly Group advanced driving instructors are holders of the RoSPA Diploma in Advanced Driving Instruction and have many years experience delivering driver training at all levels (beginner, pretest, and advanced).


“I have been involved in testing instructors and trainers from the Swilly Group since 2008.  Since then, I have watched the steady evolving of this company in the professional training of their staff for RoSPA advanced tests and the RoSPA National Diploma in Advanced Driving Instruction.  On my most recent visit I examined eight instructors for their advanced tests and as part of the Diploma course.  The standard of advanced driving and teaching was excellent and certainly the highest I have seen in a long time.

My trips to the Swilly Group give me a great deal of pleasure as I test professional candidates who are not only trained but motivated to the high level the company has set, as a benchmark.  My best wishes go to the Sweeney Family and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services and those of the Swilly Group.”
