Gillian Nolan - I passed my test!

The best driving school in Leinster! My instructor Joe, he is a brilliant teacher with excellent tips & advice. He's also a bit of craic! I became much more confident and noticeably a better driver within my first 2-3 lessons. The pricing is very reasonable and Joe works with you to best fit your schedule. I wouldn't recommend any other motor school, these guys are by far the best!

Why choose RSA School of Motoring?

Commonly students are among the following. You are either a total beginner and need to finish your EDT driving lessons. Or you have completely finished your Essential Driver Training and have a test to get ready for.

What is the 12 lesson Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballinakill EDT Driving Lessons Ballinakill

You may not realise but in the past Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. The Road Safety Authority were required to make a change so they designed a brand new driver training syllabus that all new drivers have to complete. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

This EDT necessitates that all students must finish a minimum of 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.

In an effort to decrease crashes and fill the clear driving skills gap that many new motorists were missing, the 12 lesson syllabus was developed.

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

The Test: Preparation is Vital

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballinakill Pretest Driving Lessons Ballinakill

Initially you must learn the rules of the road, the road signs and skills required to operate a car safely and securely. And then there is studying to best the driving test. The test is your opportunity to demonstrate that you are safe enough to drive on your own. And naturally, as with any kind of test, if you understand the conditions and what to expect you can pass with ease.

If your test is booked there will be many doubts and concerns to cope with. Fear can distract even the most experienced of drivers. Our approach takes away all the unknowns and affiliated fear that comes with it.

It is standard procedure by many approved driving instructors to keep delivering driving lessons until they 'think' you are ready. They 'think' you could pass the test but they do not truly 'know'. This is down to a complete lack of understanding on how the tester perceives and grades you during the driving test. This is not how we do things. All our instructors have been coached by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on driving test day.

Complete your pretest driver training with us and not only will you have an understanding of all four stages of the driving test, you'll know the potential test routes you may be brought on and you'll specifically how the driving tester will communicate with you and what they precisely want you to demonstrate.
