The EDT: The facts?
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.
