niamh lalor - I passed my test!

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 :)

Let us tell you more about our services

Nearly all of our students fall under one of the following. You have an imminent test approaching or you want to begin preparing for one before you book. Or you have never driven before and have to get your Essential Driver Training started.

What is Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballyfin EDT Driving Lessons Ballyfin

It is an depressing reality that Ireland is one of the worst nations in Europe for road deaths and accidents. In an effort to control these stats the Road Safety Authority implemented a new and obligatory driver training program for new drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

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

Learning to drive properly means understanding and performing particular driving techniques and these 12 EDT driving lessons have been designed to do exactly that.

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

Getting set for the Test in Ballyfin

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballyfin Pretest Driving Lessons Ballyfin

The art of driving properly and the skill of beating the driving test should not be mistaken as the same. You should have attained the vital driving skills and road safety knowledge prior to filling out an application for the test. Our Ballyfin pretest driving lessons are intended to explain to you how to beat the test by mastering the conditions you will be placed under.

If you have to get ready for the driving test then your brain is most likely a wash with different thoughts. We normally fear what we do not understand and the unknown. The great news is you don't need to worry any more.

It is standard practice by a lot of driving instructors to keep supplying you with driving lessons until they 'think' you are ready. They 'think' you are prepared 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 marked or what areas of your driving likely to lead a fail. Fortunately this is not how we operate. All our driving instructors have been trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.

We're not in the business of gambling on your success. Our pretest driving lessons fully simulate the Four different stages of the test and truly prepares you for the way the tester will communicate with you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we reveal this knowledge and understanding with our students it is like giving them each of the solutions to an examination before they even know the questions. And for that reason so many of our pupils pass the driving test on their first attempt. Passing first time means you save money.
