Learning to Drive in Kilkenny: A Unique Driver Training Solution

When we were in school many of us had our favorite teachers, the ones that engaged us and made learning enjoyable. And then we had the exact opposite, those teachers that had no place in the classroom. We don't assume teachers are made equal and that is no less accurate with driving instructors. It's not as straightforward as searching 'Driving Lessons Kilkenny' and choosing the first driving school you stumble upon. Who will you have faith in to offer you that enjoyable and engaging driving lesson experience?

Experience and dependability is what you should demand from a driving instructor. An establishment where learners are routinely passing the test.

Pavani Rynhart - I passed my test!

I had 2-3 lessons with before my test. He came highly recommended and they were right! He is very patient, observant and his vast experience previously as a tester was helpful. I have driven for many years but failed a test once before. He was able to prep me to be the right mental view of the whole driving test experience. It comes to show that being mentally prepared is just as important and not many instructors can help with that! Thanks ! Dr. Punitha Rynhart

Why We Label Our School, The Preferred Driving School in Kilkenny

RSA School of Motoring have the precise track record of pupil success we have been referring to and we have the validated reviews to show it. So if you need driving instruction you would be getting a head start picking us. Let us explain to you why.

Everybody has bad habits and there is no such thing as a perfect driver. So you get the most benefit from every lesson we've coached all our instructors to be able to efficiently profile you to ensure you concentrate on the aspects of your driving that need the most work.

When it comes to the bang for your buck few if any other driving schools in Kilkenny offers what we do to our pupils. With our zero cost home study support content you'll be equipped for each lesson and develop faster as a learner than with any other driving school. This material enables you to grasp and understand those tricky aspects of driving like changing direction in complex situations, night driving and your driving test maneuvers.

Driving Test Questions

No other driving schools take the same approach as us in Kilkenny. Great driving instruction is about enthusiasm, about listening to the student and pushing them to shine. Which explains why we repeatedly train and develop our instructors to not only give you the best driving lesson experience there is to be had in Kilkenny but also to give you a calm stress-free environment to learn in. That involves no tension and no yelling.

What exactly is the difference?

Which group do you fall under? You have an impending test approaching or you want to kick off preparing for one before you book. Or you are a complete beginner and want to start or complete your Essential Driver Training.

Essential Driver Training: The facts?

EDT Driving Lessons Kilkenny EDT Driving Lessons Kilkenny

Inescapable fact! Ireland is on the list of countries with the ugliest road death stats in Europe. The Essential Driver Training Syllabus was brought in by the Road Safety Authority to help overcome the issue.

This EDT mandates that all learners have to complete a minimum of 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.

In an effort to decrease accidents and plug the clear driving skills gap that many new road users were lacking, the EDT was developed.

Getting yourself prepared for the Driving Test in Kilkenny

Pretest Driving Lessons Kilkenny Pretest Driving Lessons Kilkenny

Initially you must master the rules of the road, the road signs and skills required to operate a car properly. Then you will need to grasp the conditions of the driving test and learn what to expect. Being permitted to drive solo on Kilkenny roads is a privilege you must prove you can have and the test is your opportunity to do it. Like any test you have ever had to take, 80% of the work needed to pass is accomplished long before the day of the test with correct preparation.

If you need to prepare for the driving test then your mind is probably a wash with different feelings. Anxiety about failing, concern with nervousness getting the better of you or just fear of the unknown. The great news is you don't need to be concerned any longer.

Many instructors will keep providing you with driving lessons until they ‘think’ you are prepared. Often they will bring you to perform the driving test not truly knowing if you will successfully pass or not. This is down to a total lack of understanding on how the tester perceives and grades you during the driving test. This is not how we do things. Our team of instructors have been trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.

We're not in the business of gambling on your success. Our pretest driving lessons fully simulate the Four different phases of the test and truly prepares you for the way the tester will speak to you and how they will grade you on the marking sheet.

When we reveal this knowledge and understanding with our pupils it is like offering them all the answers to an exam before they even know the questions. And for that reason a great number of our students pass on their first attempt. Passing fast means you save money.
