Here is why students call us the top driving school in Ashford
Being a good driving instructor means listening to the needs of the pupil, asking the right questions and responding with the correct remedial action and advice to turn you into an excellent thoughtful driver. Something our instructors are true experts at.
Retaining all the new information you're hit with when learning to drive is tough for any student. Wouldn't it be great if you had an instructor with you 24/7? Unfortunately that's not possible which is why we developed our own support and training material for you to study between your lessons, giving you more bang for your buck.
You will develop your understanding of driving up to 3 times faster with the aid of our home study material. You’ll find everything from tips to better handle your maneuvers to step by step material to support you through all of your EDT driving lessons. This additional free training material is not offered by any other driving school in Ashford.

What exactly is Essential Driver Training?EDT Driving Lessons Ashford
As part of an initiative to improve the poor statistics of young drivers getting killed or injured on our roads the Road Safety Authority introduced the Essential Driver Training Syllabus.
The EDT consists of 12 compulsory lessons that must be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all learner drivers.
These 12 lessons were created with the intention of filling in the vital driving skill gaps that young drivers had which were leading to the high level of road accidents occurring each year.
That's the 'whats' and 'whys' of the EDT.

The Driving Test: Crucial preparationPretest Driving Lessons Ashford
There is learning the vital driving skills and developing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. And then there is learning to pass the driving test. Being allowed to drive alone on Ashford roads is a privilege you will need to earn and the driving test is your opportunity to do it. And naturally, as with any test, if you understand the conditions and what to expect you can pass easily.
If you have to prepare for the driving test then your head is probably a wash with different emotions. Fear of failing, fear of nerves getting the better of you or just fear of the unknown. The good news is you don't need to worry any more.
Most driving instructors will keep giving you lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. They 'think' you are ready but they do not really 'know'. That is because of a total lack of understanding on how the tester thinks and marks you during the test. This is not how we do things. All our instructors have been trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.
By the end you’ll understand fully the four stages of the test and understand exactly what the driving tester is looking for from you, how they will speak to you on the day and why and when the tester will mark the sheet.

A Driving School in Ashford you can trust
We all remember the fun engaging teacher in school that made learning easy and fun. And then we had the opposite, those teachers that had no place in the classroom. Not all teachers are made equal and that is certainly no less a fact with approved driving instructors. It's not as straightforward as Googling 'Driving Lessons Ashford' and picking the first driving school you stumble upon. Who can you trust to give you that fun and engaging experience?
Obviously you want to choose a driving school that has a fantastic reputation. A place where pupils are regularly passing their driving test first time.

Rob Bowes - The Ultimate Driving School in Leinster
I got in touch with two weeks before my test on a recommendation from a friend. Within the first lesson was able to tell me exactly what I needed to fix in order to pass my test. I was feeling confident that I knew what had to be done going into the test to be successful. knew exactly what he was doing and is clearly very experienced in teaching driving as due to his help I passed first time after 3 lessons with him. Can't thank enough! Highly recommend.
