The EDT: What is it?

EDT Driving Lessons Kilmead EDT Driving Lessons Kilmead

You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. The Road Safety Authority had to do something so they designed a new training syllabus that all new drivers had to complete. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

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

Learning to drive safely means understanding and practicing specific driving skills and these 12 EDT lessons have been intended to do just that.

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

Getting yourself ready for the Driving Test in Kilmead

Pretest Driving Lessons Kilmead Pretest Driving Lessons Kilmead

First you must master the rules of the road, the road signs and skills involved to control a car safely. Then you must master the conditions of the driving test and understand what to expect. Being allowed to drive alone on Kilmead roads is a privilege you will need to earn and the driving test is your chance to do it. Like any exam you have ever had to sit, 80% of passing the driving test is accomplished well before the day of the test with proper preparation.

If you haven't done any preparation for your driving test the your are in the dark and being in the dark can cause a lot of fears to rise up. They so often get the best of even the most seasoned driver. So it stands to reason that we have to shine a light in the dark, eliminate the unknowns and the anxiety. Which is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.

Most driving instructors will keep giving you lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. Often they will send you to do the test not really knowing if you will pass or not. 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.

We don’t like leaving things to chance. Our pretest training fully simulates the 4 different stages of the driving test and fully prepares you for the way the tester will talk to you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we share this knowledge and understanding with our students it is like giving them all the answers to an exam before they even know the questions. Which is why so many of our student pass first time. Passing fast means you save money.
