Driving Lessons Athy

AT LAST THE Best Driving Lessons Athy Has Ever Seen

Our revolutionary approach to teaching young people to drive is unmatched. Our years of experience has taught us that you the student are only as good as the teacher. Which is why we continually train and upskill our instructors to not only give you the best driving lesson experience there is to be had in Athy but also to give you a calm relaxed environment to learn in. That means no stress and no yelling.

Pass your test in Athy

Here is why pupils call us the best driving school in Athy

Years of experience has taught us that all students drive at different levels and have bad habits to fix. So you get the most out of each lesson we've trained all our instructors on how to quickly profile you so that you work on the areas of your driving that need the most work.

This level of driving instruction is fantastic but we also feel that gaps between lessons can often slow progress so all our pupils also get free access to our online training platform to help reinforce their learning.

This is just one initiative that sets us apart from the competition in Athy. We have seen pupils learn 3-4 times faster with our home study training. Covering vital driving skills like driving at night, road positioning and traffic progression this training is like having your own driving instructor with you 24/7.

Essential Driver Training: What is it?

EDT Driving Lessons Athy EDT Driving Lessons Athy

Fact! Ireland has one of the worst road death statistics in Europe. The Essential Driver Training Syllabus was brought in by the Road Safety Authority to help fight the issue.

The EDT syllabus requires that 12 structured driving lessons have to be completed, stamped and uploaded to the RSA website by a registered ADI.

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.

Pretest Driving Lessons Athy Pretest Driving Lessons Athy

The art of driving safely and the art of passing the test should not be confused as the same. Long before sitting the driving test you should have the necessary skills and understanding to drive without putting your life or the lives of others in danger. Our Athy pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the situations you will be placed under.

If the thoughts of sitting the driving test are overwhelming you then you are not the first to feel like this. We naturally fear what we don't understand and the unknown. Well fear not.

Our pretest driving lessons packages have been refined over many decades to give you a deep understanding of what will happen on test day leaving you without any doubt or fear.

We don’t like leaving things to chance. We simulate for you all 4 stages of the test, teach you all the test routes and focus on the areas of your driving that are most likely to get you the most marks or fail you.

Using this method we get our student past the test in half the time it takes other driving school. That means less lessons and less expense to you.

Just passed my test this morning all thanks to the help from amazing instructor! I had taken the test twice over the last few years and failed and wasn't thrilled about trying it a 3rd time because of the previous results, but got recommended to by a friend so after only 3 hours in total of pre tests I passed, delighted! knows what he is talking about and guides you through the testing routes very calmly,professionally and puts you at ease with the overall test and what is expected of you. I can't recommend him enough as an instructor and I wouldn't have passed without him. Thanks a mill :)

niamh lalor - I passed my test!

Passed first time! I just want to say a big thank you to my driving instructor and the RSA School of Motoring for helping me pass successfully on my first attempted... Was an amazing instructor who showed me how I should drive and spent a lot of time refining my techniques to the level required to pass. He also worked on making me a confident and calm driver which was a big advantage on the day of my test...I heard of the RSA School of Motoring through a work colleague who said they were extremely good and helped her pass successfully. I'm so glad she recommend them and I would definitely recommend them to anyone learning to drive. I can now say I feel confident enough to drive anywhere on my own :)
