Fear of driving is a very common and we understand it is very important to provide the right atmosphere for our students. 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. Our instructors are passionate about teaching people to drive and work hard to give you the ultimate driving lesson experience.

Retaining all the new information you're hit with when learning to drive is tough for any student. Wouldn't it be great if you had an instructor with you 24/7? Unfortunately that's not possible which is why we developed our own support and training material for you to study between your lessons, giving you more bang for your buck.

You will develop your understanding of driving up to 3 times faster with the aid of our home study material. You’ll find everything from tips to better handle your maneuvers to step by step material to support you through all of your EDT driving lessons. No other Ballinascarthy driving school offers such a comprehensive service as this.

A Driving School in Ballinascarthy you can rely on

We all remember the exciting engaging teacher in school that made learning easy and fun. And then we had the opposite, those teachers that had no place in the classroom.

RSA School of Motoring Review

Luke Byrne

Congratulations Luke Byrne who chose us for their pretest driving lessons

I just passed my driving test and i wouldn't have been able to do it without my instructor at rsa. He was amazing help and was extremely patient with me. He was also easy to talk to which i was afraid of. I would urge anyone doing there test to do lessons with rsa if they want to pass. Cant wait to start driving on my own.

Very happy with my time with the RSA. 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.

Essential Driver Training: The history?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballinascarthy EDT Driving Lessons Ballinascarthy

As part of an initiative to improve the poor statistics of young drivers getting killed or injured on our roads the Road Safety Authority introduced the Essential Driver Training Syllabus.

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.

The Driving Test: Essential preparation

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballinascarthy Pretest Driving Lessons Ballinascarthy

There is learning the vital driving skills and developing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. And then there is learning to pass the driving test. Being allowed to drive by yourself on Ballinascarthy roads is a right you will need to earn and the driving test is your opportunity to do it. And naturally, as with any test, if you understand the conditions and what to expect you can pass easily.

If your test is booked there is a lot of unknowns and fears to contend with. Fear can distract even the most experienced of drivers. So it stands to reason that we have to shine a light in the dark, eliminate the unknowns and the fear. And that is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.

Our pretest driving lessons packages have been refined over many decades to give you a deep understanding of what will happen on test day leaving you without any doubt or fear.

We don’t like leaving things to chance. We simulate for you all 4 stages of the test, teach you all the test routes and focus on the areas of your driving that are most likely to get you the most marks or fail you.

Using this method we get our student past the test in half the time it takes other driving school. That means less lessons and less expense to you.
