Well recommended 10/10. My instructor was very good and patience during my 12 lessons and informative. Today I passed my full test with no problem.

Learn more about our unique approach to driver training

Most probably you fall into one of two categories. You have to finish or begin your 12 EDT driving lessons. Or you have completed your EDT and have a test to prepare for.

What is the 12 lesson Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballyhide EDT Driving Lessons Ballyhide

You will possibly not realise but many years ago Ireland was one of the leading countries for the worst road accident records in Europe. In an attempt to reduce these stats the Road Safety Authority implemented a whole new and obligatory training initiative for new drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The Essential Driver Training syllabus necessitates that 12 structured driving lessons must be finished, stamped and submitted to the RSA website by a registered ADI.

This 12 lesson syllabus has been designed to guarantee new drivers practice very important driving skills and build a more extensive understanding of road safety.

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

Getting ready for the Driving Test in Ballyhide

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballyhide Pretest Driving Lessons Ballyhide

There is mastering the crucial driving skills and working on your understanding of road signs and road safety. And then there is studying to best the driving test. Being permitted to drive alone on Ballyhide roads is a right you will need to earn and the test is your opportunity to do it. And obviously, as with virtually any test, if you understand the scenarios and what to expect you can successfully pass effortlessly.

If the ideas of sitting the driving test are mind-boggling then you're not the first to feel like this. Anxiety about failing, concern with nerves getting the best of you or just fear of the unknown. But with RSA School of Motoring there's no need to be worried.

Most instructors will keep providing you with lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. Often they will send you to do the driving test not actually knowing if you will successfully pass or not. And they do this because they do not really understand the driving test, how you will be graded or what elements of your driving likely to lead a fail. Fortunately this is not how we operate. All our instructors have been properly trained by ex-testers so they completely understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on driving test day.

RSA School of Motoring is not in the business of gambling on your success. Our pretest packages fully reproduce the 4 different phases of the driving test and fully prepares you for the way the tester will talk to you and how they will grade you on the marking sheet.

When we present this knowledge and understanding with our pupils it is like giving them all the solutions to an examination before they even know the questions. Which is why a great number of our pupils pass the driving test first time. Meaning fewer driving lessons and less expense to our students.
