Here is why pupils call us the best driving school in Straffan

Years of experience has taught us that all students drive at different levels and have bad habits to fix. We don't waste time trying to make you a perfect driver. We fix areas of your driving need the most work so you progress fast and stay safe.

Another thing we see a lot is students coming back for a follow up lesson having forgotten much of what was covered in the lesson before. Which is why we created our own unique training guides and tutorials to support you throughout your driver training.

This supportive material is to help you progress faster and stay safe. Our course walks you through the Essential Driver Training syllabus and helps with aspects of your driving like right and left turns giving you a better theoretical understanding of what safe driving really is. This additional free training material is not offered by any other driving school in Straffan.

What exactly is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Straffan EDT Driving Lessons Straffan

You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. In an effort to stem these stats the Road Safety Authority introduced a new and compulsory training initiative for first time drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

This EDT requires that all learners must complete a minimum of 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.

Learning to drive safely means knowing and practicing specific driving skills and these 12 EDT lessons have been designed to accomplish that.

The Driving Test: Crucial preparation

Pretest Driving Lessons Straffan Pretest Driving Lessons Straffan

There is learning the vital driving skills and developing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. Then you must master the conditions of the driving test and understand what to expect. The test is your chance to show that you are safe enough to drive unaccompanied. And naturally, as with any test, if you understand the conditions and what to expect you can pass easily.

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, remove the unknowns and the anxiety. And that is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.

Our tried and tested pretest training packages have been developed to specifically help you overcome your nerves and come out with a deep understanding on what will happen 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.

Pavani Rynhart - I passed my test!

I had 2-3 lessons with before my test. He came highly recommended and they were right! He is very patient, observant and his vast experience previously as a tester was helpful. I have driven for many years but failed a test once before. He was able to prep me to be the right mental view of the whole driving test experience. It comes to show that being mentally prepared is just as important and not many instructors can help with that! Thanks ! Dr. Punitha Rynhart
