Rob Bowes - The Ultimate Driving School in Leinster

I got in touch with two weeks before my test on a recommendation from a friend. Within the first lesson was able to tell me exactly what I needed to fix in order to pass my test. I was feeling confident that I knew what had to be done going into the test to be successful. knew exactly what he was doing and is clearly very experienced in teaching driving as due to his help I passed first time after 3 lessons with him. Can't thank enough! Highly recommend.

What exactly is Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons Old Leighlin EDT Driving Lessons Old Leighlin

You may not realise but in the not to distant past Ireland was one of the leading nations for the worst road accident records in Europe. The Road Safety Authority were required to do something so they created a brand new driver training syllabus that all new drivers have to finish. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

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

In an attempt to lower crashes and fill the evident driving skills gap that many new learners were lacking, the EDT was developed.

This hopefully has given you some insight into why the EDT exists.

The Driving Test: Preparation is Essential

Pretest Driving Lessons Old Leighlin Pretest Driving Lessons Old Leighlin

There is learning the crucial driving skills and working on your knowledge of road signs and road safety. And then there is learning how to successfully pass the driving test. The test is your chance to reveal that you are safe enough to drive unaccompanied. And obviously, as with any test, if you understand the scenarios and what to anticipate you can pass effortlessly.

If you haven't conducted any training for your test then you're in the dark and being in the dark can cause plenty of fear to occupy your thoughts. Fear can draw attention away from even the best of drivers. Our strategy gets rid of all the unknowns and affiliated fear that comes with it.

It is normal practice by many driving instructors to keep giving you lessons until they 'think' you are ready. They 'think' you are prepared but they do not really 'know'. And they do this due to the fact they do not really understand the driving test, how you will be graded or what aspects of your driving will cause you to fail. Thankfully this is not how we operate. Our team of instructors have been coached by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on driving test day.

We're not in the business of gambling on your success. Our pretest driving lessons fully simulate the 4 different stages of the test and truly prepares you for the way the driving tester will speak to you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we share this knowledge and understanding with our students it is like giving them each of the solutions to an examination before they even know the questions. Which is why a great number of our students pass first time. That means less driving lessons and less expense to our students.

Just passed my test this morning all thanks to the help from amazing instructor! I had taken the test twice over the last few years and failed and wasn't thrilled about trying it a 3rd time because of the previous results, but got recommended to by a friend so after only 3 hours in total of pre tests I passed, delighted! knows what he is talking about and guides you through the testing routes very calmly,professionally and puts you at ease with the overall test and what is expected of you. I can't recommend him enough as an instructor and I wouldn't have passed without him. Thanks a mill :)
