RSA School of Motoring Review

niamh lalor

Another one passes the test. Well done niamh lalor

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 :)

Just passed my test this morning all thanks to the help from ! I had taken the test twice over the last few years and failed and wasn't thrilled about trying it a 3rd time because of the previous results, but got recommended to by a friend so after only 3 hours in total of pre tests I passed, delighted! knows what he is talking about and guides you through the testing routes very calmly,professionally and puts you at ease with the overall test and what is expected of you. I can't recommend him enough as an instructor and I wouldn't have passed without him. Thanks a mill :)

Generally pupils are one of the following. You are either starting or need to complete your EDT driving lessons. Or you have completed your EDT and have a driving test to prepare for.

So here is a little information on our approach.

The EDT: The facts?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballincollig EDT Driving Lessons Ballincollig

You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. In an effort to stem these statistics the Road Safety Authority implemented a new and mandatory training initiative for first time drivers. 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.

In an attempt to reduce crashes and fill the evident driving skills gap that many new road users were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was developed.

Getting ready for the Test in Ballincollig

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballincollig Pretest Driving Lessons Ballincollig

The skill of driving safely and securely and the art of passing the test should not be confused as the same. 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 Ballincollig pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the conditions you will be placed under.

If you haven't done any preparation for your driving test the your are in the dark and being in the dark can cause a lot of fears to rise up. Fear can distract even the most experienced of drivers. So it makes perfect sense that we have to shine a light in the dark, eliminate the unknowns and the fear. Which is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.

Our tried and tested pretest training packages have been developed to specifically help you overcome your nerves and come out with a deep understanding on what will happen on test day.

We don’t like leaving things to chance. Our pretest training fully simulates the 4 different stages of the driving test and fully prepares you for the way the tester will talk to you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we share this knowledge and understanding with our students it is like giving them all the answers to an exam before they even know the questions. Which is why so many of our student pass first time. That means less lessons and less expense to you.
