john weng - I did it!

I passed my test with 5 marks only. My instructor Michael was the best. Sooo happy. RSA School of Motoring are just way ahead... GO WITH THEM.

Let us get started.

In all likelihood you fall into one of two categories. You need to carry out or start your 12 EDT lessons. Or you have completed your EDT and have a driving test to get ready for.

What exactly is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Thomastown EDT Driving Lessons Thomastown

It is an regrettable truth that Ireland is among the worst nations in Europe for road deaths and accidents. The Road Safety Authority had to take action so they developed a brand new driver training syllabus that all new drivers have to carry out. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The EDT is made up of 12 mandatory lessons that must be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all new drivers.

Learning to drive safely will mean comprehending and applying particular driving skills and these 12 EDT driving lessons have been designed to accomplish that.

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

The Driving Test: Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

Pretest Driving Lessons Thomastown Pretest Driving Lessons Thomastown

The art of driving safely and securely and the art of passing the driving test should not be mistaken as the equivalent. You really should curently have the vital driving skills and road safety knowledge prior to applying for the driving test. Pre-test driver training should be focused on comprehending the driving test itself and how you can better it.

If you have not conducted any training for your test then you're in the dark and being in the dark can cause plenty of fear to occupy your thoughts. They frequently get the best of even the most experienced driver. So it makes perfect sense that we have to shine a light in the dark, take away the unknowns and the fear. And that's exactly what our pretest driving lessons will do.

A lot of instructors will keep giving you lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. They 'think' you could pass the test but they do not really 'know'. That is because of a total lack of knowledge on how the tester perceives and marks you during the test. This is not how we do things. Our team of 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.

We're not in the business of gambling on your success. We simulate for you all Four stages of the driving test, teach you all the test routes and focus on the aspects of your driving that are most likely to cause you to fail the test.

Using this process we get our pupils over the line in half the time it takes other driving schools. Meaning fewer driving lessons and less expense to our students.
