Which category do you fit into? Either you have your EDT carried out and want to get ready for the test. Or you are a total beginner and need to start or complete your Essential Driver Training.

Essential Driver Training: What exactly is it?

EDT Driving Lessons Rathvilly EDT Driving Lessons Rathvilly

It is an depressing reality that Ireland is among the worst nations in Europe for road deaths and accidents. In an attempt to stem these stats the Road Safety Authority created a brand new and compulsory training initiative for first time drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

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

In an attempt to decrease accidents and fill the clear driving skills gap that many new learners were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was developed.

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

The Driving Test: Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

Pretest Driving Lessons Rathvilly Pretest Driving Lessons Rathvilly

Preparing to pass the driving test is completely different from learning to drive. You ought to have attained the essential driving skills and road safety knowledge before applying for the test. Our Rathvilly pretest driving lessons are engineered to explain to you how to overcome the driving test by becoming familiar with the conditions you will be placed under.

If you need to prepare for the test then your head is most likely a wash with different thoughts. We normally fear what we don't understand and the unforeseen. Well have no fear.

Most instructors will keep providing you with lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. Often they will send you to perform the driving test not actually knowing if you will successfully pass or not. This is down to a total lack of knowledge on how the driving tester thinks and marks you during the test. This is not how we do things. All our instructors have been coached by ex-testers so they completely understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on driving test day.

Finish your pretest driver training with us and not only will you have an understanding of all 4 stages of the test, you will understand the possible driving test routes you may be brought around and you'll know exactly how the tester will talk to you and what they specifically want you to demonstrate.

Very happy with my time with the RSA School of Motoring. They paired me the right instructor and passed on my 2nd attempt. Was very nervous for the first few lessons but instructor was very helpful, relaxed and calm which helped me a great deal. Couldn't speak more highly of him.

Can I Hire Your A Driving School Car For The Test?

Are you aware that 10% of all driving tests stop before they even start because learners show up with a vehicle that isn't roadworthy. Show up in a car that doesn't have all lamps and safety features functioning, or have up to date tax and insurance then you fail the test before it has even started. We always suggest you hire a reliable driving school car to ensure that the test goes forward and you deliver the best message to the driving tester. We have some excellent Affordable Pretest Car Hire Bundles so go check them out.
