Rob Bowes - The Ultimate Driving School in Leinster

I got in touch with two weeks before my test on a recommendation from a friend. Within the first lesson was able to tell me exactly what I needed to fix in order to pass my test. I was feeling confident that I knew what had to be done going into the test to be successful. knew exactly what he was doing and is clearly very experienced in teaching driving as due to his help I passed first time after 3 lessons with him. Can't thank enough! Highly recommend.

niamh lalor

niamh lalor - I passed my test!

Passed first time! I just want to say a big thank you to my driving instructor and the RSA School of Motoring for helping me pass successfully on my first attempted... Was an amazing instructor who showed me how I should drive and spent a lot of time refining my techniques to the level required to pass. He also worked on making me a confident and calm driver which was a big advantage on the day of my test...I heard of the RSA School of Motoring through a work colleague who said they were extremely good and helped her pass successfully. I'm so glad she recommend them and I would definitely recommend them to anyone learning to drive. I can now say I feel confident enough to drive anywhere on my own :)

Let us begin there.

Most of our learners belong to among the following. You have an imminent test approaching or you want to start preparing for one before you book. Or you are a complete beginner and need to get started or complete your Essential Driver Training.

Essential Driver Training: The history?

EDT Driving Lessons Rath EDT Driving Lessons Rath

During an effort to improve the poor stats of young drivers getting killed or injured on our roadways the Road Safety Authority launched the Essential Driver Training Syllabus.

The Essential Driver Training Syllabus contains 12 mandatory lessons that have to be provided by a RSA approved driving instructor to all learner drivers.

In an effort to lower accidents and plug the clear driving skills gap that many new learners were missing, the EDT was developed.

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

The Driving Test: Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

Pretest Driving Lessons Rath Pretest Driving Lessons Rath

There is grasping the vital driving skills and growing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. And then there is studying to pass the driving test. The test is your chance to show that you are safe enough to drive on your own. Like any exam you have ever had to sit, 80% of the work necessary to pass is done long before the day of the test with right preparation.

If you have not done any groundwork for your driving test then you are in the dark and finding yourself in the dark can lead to a lot of fear to occupy your thoughts. Fear can sidetrack even the best of drivers. So it isn't surprising that we have to shine a light in the dark, remove the unknowns and the worry. And that's precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.

It is normal practice by many approved driving instructors to keep delivering driving lessons until they 'think' you could pass the test. They 'think' you are ready but they do not really 'know'. That is because of 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 coached by ex-testers so they completely understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on driving test day.

Finish your pretest driver training with us and not only will you understand all 4 phases of the driving test, you will understand the potential test routes you may be brought on and you'll know exactly how the tester will talk to you and what they precisely want you to demonstrate.
