JC Clarke - The Best Driving School in Leinster

Very happy with my time with the RSA School of Motoring. They paired me the right instructor and passed on my 2nd attempt. Was very nervous for the first few lessons but instructor was very helpful, relaxed and calm which helped me a great deal. Couldn't speak more highly of him.

Learn more about our unique approach to driver training

More than likely you belong to one of two categories. You have to accomplish or commence your 12 EDT lessons. Or you have completely finished your EDT and have a driving test to get ready for.

What exactly is the 12 lesson Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons Clara EDT Driving Lessons Clara

It is an depressing fact that Ireland is one of the worst nations in Europe for road deaths and accidents. In an attempt to reduce these statistics the Road Safety Authority introduced a brand new and compulsory training program for first time drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The Essential Driver Training Syllabus consists of 12 obligatory structured driving lessons that have to be provided by a RSA approved driving instructor to all new drivers.

In an attempt to lower crashes and fill the evident driving skills gap that many new motorists were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was created.

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

The Test: Preparation is Vital

Pretest Driving Lessons Clara Pretest Driving Lessons Clara

First you must master the rules of the road, the road signs and skills needed to control a car properly. And then there is learning how to successfully pass the driving test. The test is your chance to demonstrate that you are safe enough to drive on your own. As with any test you have ever had to sit, 80% of the work necessary to pass is done long before the day of the test with right preparation.

If the thoughts of sitting the driving test are overwhelming you then you're not the first person to feel like this. We naturally fear what we don't understand and the unforeseen. Well don't worry.

Many instructors will keep delivering driving lessons until they ‘think’ you are prepared. Commonly they will bring you to perform the driving test not really knowing if you will successfully pass or not. This is down to a complete lack of understanding on how the tester perceives and grades you during the test. This is not how we do things. All our driving instructors have been trained 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 driver training with us and you won't just have an understanding of all four stages of the test, you will understand the possible driving test routes you may be brought on and you'll know precisely how the tester will speak to you and what they precisely want you to demonstrate.

Find our more about our pretest lessons in Clara here... or Call 01 902 3100 now to book your pretest package.
