Learning to Drive in Shanahoe: An Eye Opening Driver Training Strategy

Most of us will remember the exciting engaging teacher at school that made learning easy and fun. And we remember the lousy teachers that had no business teaching anyone. Not all teachers are made equal and that is no less accurate with driving instructors. It's not as straightforward as Googling 'Driving Lessons Shanahoe' and choosing the first driving school you unearth. Who will you trust to provide you with that exciting and engaging driving lesson experience?

Experience and dependability is what you need from a driving school. A place where students are consistently passing their driving test first time.

I contacted RSA School of Motoring a week prior to my driving test and had 2 lessons and also a pre-test on the day of my driving test. The advice I was given and things I learned from RSA is fantastic, I was put right at ease and given great confidence for the test and needless to say I passed!!!! I would highly recommend RSA School of Motoring to anybody applying for their driving test.

Niamh O' Farrell Another student passes

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 :)

Let us start there.

Which category do you fall under? Either you have your Essential Driver Training done and need to get ready for the driving test. Or you have never driven before and want to get your Essential Driver Training underway.

What exactly is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Shanahoe EDT Driving Lessons Shanahoe

You may not realise but in the past Ireland was one of the top nations for the worst road accident records in Europe. In an attempt to control these stats the Road Safety Authority created a new and obligatory driver training program for first time drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The EDT consists of 12 mandatory structured driving lessons that must be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all learner drivers.

Learning to drive properly means understanding and practicing particular driving techniques and these 12 EDT lessons have been intended to do just that.

This hopefully gives you some insight into why the EDT exists.

Pretest Driving Lessons Shanahoe Pretest Driving Lessons Shanahoe

Preparing to pass the driving test is completely different from learning to be a safe driver. Well before sitting the test you should hold the essential skills and knowledge to drive without putting your life or the lives of other people in jeopardy. Our Shanahoe pretest driving lessons are constructed to explain to you how to better the driving test by mastering the conditions you will be placed under.

If the thoughts of attempting the driving test are too much to handle then you are not the first person to feel like this. Concern with screwing up, fear of nerves getting the best of you or just fear of the unknown. But with RSA School of Motoring you don't have to be scared.

It is standard practice by a lot of approved driving instructors to keep supplying you with lessons until they 'think' you are ready. They 'think' you could pass the test but they do not really 'know'. And they do this due to the fact they do not actually understand the driving test, how you will be graded or what aspects of your driving will cause you to fail. Luckily this is not how we operate. All our instructors have been properly trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.

After training with us you’ll understand fully the four stages of the test and understand exactly what the driving tester is looking for from you, how they will consult with you on the day and why and when the tester will mark the sheet.

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 :)
