This EDT necessitates that all new drivers must complete a no less than 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.
Learning to drive safely means knowing and applying particular driving techniques and these 12 EDT driving lessons have been designed to accomplish that.
That's the 'whats' and 'whys' of the EDT.

Often they will bring you to do the driving test not actually knowing if you will successfully pass or not. And they do this due to the fact they do not really understand the driving test, how you will be marked or what areas of your driving likely to lead a fail.
