Rachael Buggle - I passed my test!

I failed my test several times and had lost faith in my ability to actually pass the test. A friend suggested that I contact the School of Motoring for a new instructor. They suggested who specialized in aiding those who had not been successful. After a few lessons I was ready to sit my test again and passed it. I highly recommend this school and this instructor. I don't think I would have passed my test without their help.

Allow us to tell you more about our services

More than likely you fall into one of two categories. You need to accomplish or begin your 12 EDT driving lessons. Or you have finished your Essential Driver Training and have a test to prepare for.

The EDT: The facts?

EDT Driving Lessons Durrow EDT Driving Lessons Durrow

You may not realise but in the past Ireland was one of the leading nations for the worst road accident stats in Europe. The Road Safety Authority were required to take action so they created a new driver training syllabus that all new drivers have to complete. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The EDT is made up of 12 compulsory structured driving lessons that must be provided by a RSA approved driving instructor to all new drivers.

These 12 lessons were created with the intention of filling in the crucial driving skill gaps that new drivers had that have been ultimately causing the high level of road accidents each year.

That's the 'whats' and 'whys' of the EDT.

BOOM... POP QUIZ
Do You Know The Answer?

What must you make sure of before starting a reverse?

That you have a clear view and that no pedestrians, especially children, are crossing behind you. Look out for cyclists.

The Test: Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

Pretest Driving Lessons Durrow Pretest Driving Lessons Durrow

There is grasping the crucial driving skills and growing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. And then there is studying to pass the driving test. Being allowed to drive solo on Durrow roads is a privilege you must earn and the driving test is your opportunity to do it. And obviously, as with any kind of test, if you are familiar with the conditions and what to anticipate you can successfully pass effortlessly.

If you need to prepare for the test then your head is most likely a wash with different emotions. Fear of screwing up, fear of nervousness getting the better of you or just fear of the unknown. Well have no fear.

It is normal practice by many driving instructors to keep giving you driving lessons until they 'think' you are ready. They 'think' you are ready but they do not truly 'know'. This is down to a total lack of knowledge on how the tester thinks and grades you during the driving test. This is not how we do things. Our team of instructors have been properly trained by ex-testers so they completely understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.

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

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

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 :)
