Here is some information on our approach.

Which group do you fall under? Either you have your EDT done and want to prepare for the driving test. Or you are a complete beginner and need to begin or finish off your Essential Driver Training.

Essential Driver Training: What is it?

EDT Driving Lessons Hacketstown EDT Driving Lessons Hacketstown

It is an regrettable truth that Ireland is among the worst nations in Europe for road deaths and accidents. In an effort to reduce these statistics the Road Safety Authority launched a whole new and compulsory training program for new drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The EDT is made up of 12 compulsory lessons that have to be provided by a RSA approved driving instructor to all new drivers.

These 12 lessons were developed with the goal of filling in the crucial driving skill gaps that young drivers had which were resulting in the high degree of road accidents each year.

As with any exam you've ever had to take, 80% of passing the driving test is accomplished well before the day of the test with right training.

Our tried and tested pretest driving lessons have been created to specifically enable you to defeat your anxiety and come out with a deep comprehension on what will happen on driving test day.

We don’t like abandoning things to chance. Our pretest packages completely reproduce the Four different stages of the test and fully prepares you for the way the tester will talk to you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we reveal this knowledge and understanding with our pupils it is like providing them with all the solutions to an exam before they even know the questions. Which is why so many of our pupils pass the driving test first time. Meaning fewer lessons and less expense to you.
