Jamie O'Connell

Jamie O'Connell - I passed my test!

My driving instructor Colman was fantastic. He was friendly, very patient and gave great clear instruction. I felt well prepared when it came to the test (I passed two weeks back). I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is learning to drive. You won't find a better instructor!

Find out more about our unique approach to driver training

In all likelihood you fall into one of two categories. You have to complete or start your 12 EDT driving lessons. Or you have completed your Essential Driver Training and have a test to prepare for.

What exactly is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballynacargy EDT Driving Lessons Ballynacargy

During an initiative to improve the negative statistics of young drivers getting killed or injured on our roads the Road Safety Authority created the EDT.

This EDT necessitates that all learners must finish a no less than 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.

These 12 driving lessons were developed with the intention of filling in the crucial driving skill gaps that young drivers had which were leading to the high degree of road accidents occurring each year.

Getting set for the Test in Ballynacargy

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballynacargy Pretest Driving Lessons Ballynacargy

The skill of driving properly and the art of passing the test should not be confused as the equivalent. Long before attempting the driving test you should hold the essential skills and understanding to drive without having to put your life or the lives of others at risk. Pretest training should be focused on understanding the driving test itself and how you can beat it.

If you have to prepare for the driving test then your mind is most likely a wash with different emotions. We naturally fear what we don't understand and the unknown. Well fear not.

It is normal practice by a lot of driving instructors to keep giving you driving lessons until they 'think' you are ready. They 'think' you are ready but they do not really 'know'. This is down to a total lack of knowledge on how the tester perceives and marks you during the test. This is not how we do things. All our instructors have been properly trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.

RSA School of Motoring is not in the business of gambling on your success. We mimic for you all 4 phases of the driving test, teach you all the driving test routes and zero in on the areas of your driving that are most likely to cause you to fail the test.

Using this approach we get our students over the line in half the time it takes other driving schools. That means fewer lessons and less expense to our students.

Do You Know The Answer?

What must you make sure of before starting a reverse?
