IT'S HERE... THE Finest Driving Lessons Shillelagh Has to Offer
We think learning to drive should be fun and stress free. There most definitely should be no yelling involved. It's our responsibility to make sure you are comfortable behind the wheel. Which is why our instructors get that little bit extra training above the standard you'll usually see out there. As a student you are only as good as the training you receive and that training has to be catered to your individual needs. And this is exactly where the expertise of our driving instructors is focused. You, our student, and your safe development into a competent driver.
Here is why students call us the top driving school in Shillelagh
We want you to develop as a driver as fast as you can and as safe as you can. Our instructors don't drill the same things into you over and over. They assess your driving and focus on fixing your bad habits and building your road craft.
Taking one or two driving lessons a week in Shillelagh is often not enough for some students. To help our students with this we have built our own training course to study between lessons to help reinforce what you learn in the car.
This supportive material is to help you progress faster and stay safe. Our course walks you through the Essential Driver Training syllabus and helps with aspects of your driving like right and left turns giving you a better theoretical understanding of what safe driving really is. No other Shillelagh driving school offers such a comprehensive service as this.

What exactly is Essential Driver Training?
EDT Driving Lessons Shillelagh
You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. The Road Safety Authority had to do something so they designed a new training syllabus that all new drivers had to complete. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.
The EDT consists of 12 compulsory lessons that must be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all learner drivers.
These 12 lessons were created with the intention of filling in the vital driving skill gaps that young drivers had which were leading to the high level of road accidents occurring each year.
That's the 'whats' and 'whys' of the EDT.

Why is a stop sign or a yield sign so shaped?
If defaced or covered in any way, the driver recognises the shape.

Pretest Driving Lessons Shillelagh
Training to pass the driving test is completely different from learning to drive. Long before sitting the driving test you should have the necessary skills and understanding to drive without putting your life or the lives of others in danger. Our Shillelagh pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the situations you will be placed under.
If you have to prepare for the driving test then your head is probably a wash with different emotions. Fear of failing, fear of nerves getting the better of you or just fear of the unknown. Well fear not.
It is standard practice by many driving instructors to keep giving you lessons until they 'think' you are ready. They 'think' you are ready but they do not really 'know'. That is because of a total lack of understanding on how the tester thinks and marks you during the test. This is not how we do things. All our instructors have been trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.
By the end you’ll understand fully the four stages of the test and understand exactly what the driving tester is looking for from you, how they will speak to you on the day and why and when the tester will mark the sheet.

niamh lalor - I passed my test!
Passed first time! I just want to say a big thank you to my driving instructor and the RSA School of Motoring for helping me pass successfully on my first attempted... Was an amazing instructor who showed me how I should drive and spent a lot of time refining my techniques to the level required to pass. He also worked on making me a confident and calm driver which was a big advantage on the day of my test...I heard of the RSA School of Motoring through a work colleague who said they were extremely good and helped her pass successfully. I'm so glad she recommend them and I would definitely recommend them to anyone learning to drive. I can now say I feel confident enough to drive anywhere on my own :)
