Rachael Buggle - I passed my test!

I failed my test several times and had lost faith in my ability to actually pass the test. A friend suggested that I contact the School of Motoring for a new instructor. They suggested who specialized in aiding those who had not been successful. After a few lessons I was ready to sit my test again and passed it. I highly recommend this school and this instructor. I don't think I would have passed my test without their help.

Let us begin there.

The EDT: What is it?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballon EDT Driving Lessons Ballon

It is an depressing truth that Ireland is one of the worst nations in Europe for road deaths and accidents. In order to reduce these statistics the Road Safety Authority unveiled a whole new and obligatory driver training program for first time drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

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

In an attempt to reduce accidents and fill the apparent driving skills gap that many new learners were missing, the EDT was created.

The Test: Your Essential Preparation

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballon Pretest Driving Lessons Ballon

Preparing to successfully pass the driving test is completely not the same as learning to drive. You really should have attained the crucial driving skills and road safety knowledge before applying for the driving test. Our Ballon pretest driving lessons are engineered to explain to you how to better the driving test by mastering the conditions you will be placed under.

If your test is arranged there is a lot of doubts and fears to contend with. Fear can draw attention away from even the most experienced of drivers. So it isn't surprising that we have to shine a light in the dark, remove the unknowns and the fear. And that is exactly what our pretest packages will do.

Our pretest driving lesson packages have been polished over many decades to provide you with a deep understanding of what exactly will take place on driving test day leaving you devoid of any doubt or fear.

We're not in the business of gambling on your success. We simulate for you all Four phases of the driving test, teach you all the driving test routes and focus on the aspects of your driving that are most likely to cause you to fail the driving test.

Using this method we get our students over the line in half the time it takes other driving schools. That means fewer lessons and less expense to you.

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
