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

Let us get started.

In all likelihood you fall under one of two categories. You are either a total beginner and need to finish your EDT driving lessons. Or you have completed your EDT and have a test to prepare for.

What exactly is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Newtown EDT Driving Lessons Newtown

You will possibly not know but in the not to distant past Ireland was one of the top nations for the worst road accident stats in Europe. The Road Safety Authority had to make a change so they launched a new training syllabus that all new drivers have to complete. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

This EDT necessitates that all students have to finish a minimum of 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.

These 12 driving lessons were created with the intention of filling in the vital driving skill gaps that new drivers had that have been ultimately causing the high amount of road accidents occurring each year.

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

Planning for the Test in Newtown

Pretest Driving Lessons Newtown Pretest Driving Lessons Newtown

There is grasping the essential driving skills and developing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. And then there is studying to pass the driving test. The test is your chance to reveal that you are safe enough to drive on your own. And obviously, as with virtually any test, if you are familiar with the scenarios and what to expect you can pass with ease.

If you haven't done any preparation for your driving test then you're in the dark and being in the dark can cause a lot of fear to rise up. They frequently get the best of even the most seasoned driver. So it seems logical that we have to shine a light in the dark, take away the unknowns and the anxiety. And that is exactly what our pretest packages will do.

A lot of instructors will keep providing you with driving lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. Often they will send you to do the driving test not actually knowing if you will pass or not. And they do this due to the fact they do not actually understand the driving test, how you will be graded or what areas of your driving will cause you to fail. Thankfully this is not how we operate. Our team of driving instructors have been properly trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on driving test day.

Complete your pretest training with us and you won't just fully grasp all 4 stages of the test, you'll know the possible test routes you may be brought around and you'll know precisely how the driving tester will speak to you and what they precisely want you to demonstrate.
