PAULINA DYLEWSKA - Passes with RSA School of Motoring


PAULINA DYLEWSKA - I couldn't have done it without RSA School of Motoring Leinster

I would like to say great THANK YOU to because I passed my driving test. My story is easy. I failed my first driving test. After that I found on the webside Tthe mobile phone to . I ordered 4 hours of lessons with him. That four hours gave me a lot of knowledge. At first He showed me how I should to drive than I had to drive. After few minutes He knows why I did not pass my exam. He is a good observer. He fixed my mistake with excelent result. The most important is that He thorougtly explained me why I did mistake. Good news for people with basic english!!!! He is patient and He is speaking simply and clearly. I really recommend the RSA SCHOOL OF MOTORING.

We now have helped hundreds of learners pass the driving test so before you carry on your search we encourage you to think about RSA School of Motoring for your driver training in Stradbally. Let us explain to you why.

Our driving instructors are actually trained to efficiently figure out what level you are at, where your bad habits lie and what remedial measures need to be delivered to ensure you build the most progress possible from each lesson with us.

Taking a couple of lessons a week in Stradbally is often not enough for some learners. Wouldn't it be brilliant if you had a driving instructor with you 24/7? Regretably that's not feasible which is why we designed our own support and training content for you to study in between your lessons, giving you more value for your money.

No other Stradbally Driving Schools supply zero cost content like ours. We have seen learners retain information 3-4 times faster with our email study training. Spanning very important driving skills like speed management, road positioning and traffic progression this training is like having your own driving instructor with you 24 hours a day.

Pavani Rynhart - Passed in Wicklow

Pavani Rynhart

Pavani Rynhart - I passed my test!

I had 2-3 lessons with before my test. He came highly recommended and they were right! He is very patient, observant and his vast experience previously as a tester was helpful. I have driven for many years but failed a test once before. He was able to prep me to be the right mental view of the whole driving test experience. It comes to show that being mentally prepared is just as important and not many instructors can help with that! Thanks ! Dr. Punitha Rynhart

Here is a little insight on our approach.

Generally learners are among the following. You have to carry out or begin your 12 EDT lessons. Or you need to kick off your pretest preparation.

The EDT: What exactly is it?

EDT Driving Lessons Stradbally EDT Driving Lessons Stradbally

During an initiative to improve the bad statistics of young drivers getting killed or seriously injured on our roads the Road Safety Authority unveiled the EDT.

The EDT consists of 12 obligatory lessons that must be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all learner drivers.

In an attempt to lower accidents and plug the apparent driving skills gap that many new motorists were lacking, the EDT was developed.

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

Getting yourself ready for the Driving Test in Stradbally

Pretest Driving Lessons Stradbally Pretest Driving Lessons Stradbally

Training to pass the driving test is utterly not the same as learning to be a safe driver. You should already have the crucial driving skills and road safety knowledge in advance of applying for the test. Our Stradbally pretest driving lessons are engineered to demonstrate how to overcome the test by becoming familiar with the conditions you will be placed under.

If you haven't completed any groundwork for your driving test then you're in the dark and finding yourself in the dark can cause a lot of fear to rise up. Fear can distract even the most experienced of drivers. So it stands to reason that we have to shine a light in the dark, remove the unknowns and the worry. Which is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.

Our proven pretest training packages have been created to expressly help you overcome your nerves and come out with a deep understanding on what will occur on test day.

Complete your pretest driver training with us and you won't just fully grasp all 4 phases of the driving test, you will understand the potential driving test routes you may be brought around and you'll specifically know how the tester will communicate with you and what they precisely 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.
