Essential Driver Training: The history?

EDT Driving Lessons Rathdowney EDT Driving Lessons Rathdowney

As part of an initiative to correct the poor stats of young drivers getting killed or seriously injured on our roads the Road Safety Authority introduced the EDT.

The EDT syllabus necessitates that 12 structured driving lessons have to be finished, rubber-stamped and submitted to the RSA website by a registered ADI.

These 12 lessons were created with the intention of filling in the vital driving skill gaps that new drivers had which were leading to the high amount of road accidents each year.

This hopefully gives you some insight into why the EDT exists.
