Brilliant instructors. Highly recommended. Passed test first time today thanks.

Let us get started.

Typically students are one of the following. You are either a total beginner and need to finish your EDT driving lessons. Or you need to start your pre-test preparation.

What is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Gowran EDT Driving Lessons Gowran

It is an depressing reality that Ireland is among the worst countries in Europe for road deaths and accidents. To help reduce these statistics the Road Safety Authority introduced a new and mandatory training initiative for first time drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The EDT consists of 12 obligatory structured driving lessons that have to be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all new drivers.

These 12 driving lessons were designed with the objective of filling in the crucial driving skill gaps that new drivers had that have been ultimately causing the high level of road accidents each year.

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