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 :)

We now have helped hundreds of pupils pass the test so before you carry on your search we urge you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driving lessons in Killeshin. Let us explain to you why.

Our instructors have been trained to efficiently recognise what standard you are at, where your bad habits lie and what remedial measures should be delivered to ensure you make the most improvement possible from each driving lesson with us.

Something we see a lot is pupils returning for a follow-up lesson having forgotten much of what was included in the lesson before. To help with this we've designed our own unique training guides and tutorials to support you during your driver training.

We have seen pupils persistently develop faster with the use of our home study support program. You’ll find everything from suggestions to better deal with your maneuvers to in depth material to support you through your entire EDT syllabus. This extra zero cost training program is not offered by any other driving school in Killeshin.

Learning to Drive in Killeshin: An Eye Opening Driver Training Approach

When we were in school we all had our favorite teachers, those who engaged us and made learning enjoyable. And on the opposite end of the scale we had teachers that had no place in the class room. We don't assume teachers are made equal and that is no less true with approved driving instructors. It is easy to Google 'Driving Lessons Killeshin' and discover instructors near you but which can you trust to best train to drive?

You should demand a driving instructor with a reputation built on experience and driving test passes. A place where learners are regularly passing their driving test first time.

I failed my driving test four times until I came here and got a few lessons. It seriously turned my driving around, and I passed the test this morning! Highly highly recommend.

What's the difference?

Most of our students fall under among the following. Either you have your Essential Driver Training carried out and want to prepare for the driving test. Or you have never driven before and have to get your EDT underway.

What is the 12 lesson Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons Killeshin EDT Driving Lessons Killeshin

You may not know but in the not to distant past Ireland had one of the worst road accident stats in Europe. The Road Safety Authority had to do something so they created a new training curriculum that all new drivers have to finish. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The EDT syllabus necessitates that 12 structured driving lessons must be carried out, rubber-stamped and submitted to the RSA website by a registered ADI.

Learning to drive safely will mean understanding and applying particular driving skills and these 12 EDT lessons have been designed to do just that.

The best driving school in Leinster! My instructor Joe, he is a brilliant teacher with excellent tips & advice. He's also a bit of craic! I became much more confident and noticeably a better driver within my first 2-3 lessons. The pricing is very reasonable and Joe works with you to best fit your schedule. I wouldn't recommend any other motor school, these guys are by far the best!
