Luke Byrne - Their Pretest Lessons Are The Best

I just passed my driving test and i wouldn't have been able to do it without my instructor at rsa. He was amazing help and was extremely patient with me. He was also easy to talk to which i was afraid of. I would urge anyone doing there test to do lessons with rsa if they want to pass. Cant wait to start driving on my own.

Let us start there.

Which category do you fit into? Either you have your EDT completed and need to prepare for the test. Or you haven't ever driven before and need to get your EDT started.

What exactly is the 12 lesson Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons Carlow EDT Driving Lessons Carlow

You may not know but in the past Ireland was one of the leading countries for the worst road accident records in Europe. To help stem these stats the Road Safety Authority implemented a brand new and obligatory training initiative for first time drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

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

Learning to drive properly means knowing and performing specific 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.

The Driving Test: Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

Pretest Driving Lessons Carlow Pretest Driving Lessons Carlow

There is mastering the vital driving skills and working on your knowledge of road signs and road safety. Then you will need to master the circumstances of the driving test and learn what to expect. Being permitted to drive alone on Carlow roads is a right you will need to prove you can have and the driving test is your chance to do it. As with any test you've ever had to sit, 80% of passing the driving test is accomplished long before the day of the test with correct training.

If your driving test is scheduled there is a lot of unknowns and concerns to cope with. They often get the best of even the most experienced driver. So it makes perfect sense that we have to shine a light in the dark, remove the unknowns and the worry. And that is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.

Most instructors will keep delivering lessons until they ‘think’ you are prepared. They 'think' you are prepared but they do not really 'know'. And they do this due to the fact they do not actually have an understanding of the driving test, how you will be graded or what areas of your driving likely to lead a fail. Thankfully this is not how we operate. All our driving instructors have been coached by ex-testers so they completely understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on driving test day.

Finish your pretest training with us and you won't just have an understanding of all 4 phases of the test, you will understand the possible test routes you may be brought around and you are going to know exactly how the driving tester will speak to you and what they specifically want you to demonstrate.
