Learning to Drive in Rathowen: An Eye Opening Driver Training Solution

When we were in school many of us had our favorite teachers, those that engaged us and made learning fun. And then we had the opposite, those teachers that had no place in the classroom. Not all teachers are made equal and that is certainly no less true with approved driving instructors. It's not as simple as searching 'Driving Lessons Rathowen' and choosing the first driving school you stumble upon. Who will you trust to provide you with that exciting and engaging experience?

You should demand a driving school with a reputation built on practical experience and driving test passes. A place where students are consistently getting through the driving test.

The Most Outstanding Driving Lessons in Rathowen

Why We Label Our School, The Leading Driving School in Rathowen

We have helped countless pupils pass the driving test so before you carry on your search we urge you to think about RSA School of Motoring for your driving lessons in Rathowen. Read on to discover why.

Our instructors have been trained to quickly figure out what standard your driving is at, where your bad habits lie and what remedial measures need to be taken to guarantee you make the most progress possible from each lesson with us.

Something we see a lot is pupils coming back for a follow-up driving lesson having forgotten much of what was covered in the driving lesson before. To aid with this we've designed our own unique training guides and tutorials to support you throughout your driver training.

No other Rathowen Driving Schools provide free content like ours. We've noticed that students retain information 3-4 times faster with our email study training. Lessons come and go quick and it is easy to fail to remember what you have been taught. Our extra lesson content means you can follow up on what was discussed before the next driving lesson guaranteeing you never lose time and money going over the same things twice.

What's the difference?

Which category do you belong to? You have an certain test coming up or you want to start preparing for one before you book. Or you have never driven before and need to get your Essential Driver Training underway.

Essential Driver Training: What is it?

EDT Driving Lessons Rathowen EDT Driving Lessons Rathowen

It is an sad reality that Ireland is among the worst countries in Europe for road deaths and accidents. The Road Safety Authority were required to do something so they launched a brand new training syllabus that all new drivers have to finish. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

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

In an attempt to lower accidents and fill the apparent driving skills gap that many new learners were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was created.

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

The Test: Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

Pretest Driving Lessons Rathowen Pretest Driving Lessons Rathowen

The art of driving properly and the skill of passing the driving test should not be mistaken as the equivalent. You should already have the vital driving skills and road safety knowledge prior to filling out an application for the driving test. Pretest training is about understanding the test itself and how you can beat it.

If you have to prepare for the driving test then your brain is probably a wash with different emotions. Anxiety about screwing up, fear of nerves getting the best of you or just fear of the unknown. But with RSA School of Motoring you don't have to fret.

It is standard procedure by many driving instructors to keep delivering driving lessons until they 'think' you are ready. Often they will bring you to perform the driving test not really knowing if you will successfully pass or not. This is down to a total lack of understanding on how the tester thinks and grades you during the 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 driving test day.

After training with us you’ll understand fully the four phases of the test and fully grasp exactly what the driving tester is searching for from you, how they will consult with you on the day and why and when the driving tester will grade the sheet.
