Discover more about our unique approach to driver training

The majority of our pupils fit in one of the following. You have an certain driving test coming up or you want to kick off preparing for one before you book. Or you are a total beginner and need to get started or complete your Essential Driver Training.

What exactly is Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons The Swan EDT Driving Lessons The Swan

You may not realise but in the not to distant past Ireland had one of the worst road accident stats in Europe. The Road Safety Authority were required to take action so they created a brand new driver training syllabus that all new drivers have to carry out. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

This Essential Driver Training Syllabus mandates that all new drivers have to complete a minimum of 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.

These 12 driving lessons were developed with the objective of filling in the vital driving skill gaps that new drivers had which were leading to the high degree of road accidents occurring each year.

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