THE BEST DRIVING LESSONS Ballydehob HAS TO OFFER

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. Our driving instructors are trained beyond the normal requirements to ensure you get only the best. As a student you are only as good as the training you receive and that training has to be catered to your individual needs. In the end that is what being a driving instructor is all about. Bridging the gap and turning a nervous beginner into a safe, confident driver.

WHY WE SAY WE ARE THE Leading DRIVING SCHOOL IN Ballydehob

In all our years teaching we have never seen a perfect driver because one doesn't exist. Being safe and confident is all you need to aim for. We don't waste time trying to make you a perfect driver. We fix areas of your driving need the most work so you progress fast and stay safe.

Retaining all the new information you're hit with when learning to drive is tough for any student. To help our students with this we have built our own training course to study between lessons to help reinforce what you learn in the car.

This is just one initiative that sets us apart from the competition in Ballydehob. Many of our pupils have even attributed it to their fast progress and development. This material helps you grasp and understand those tricky areas of driving like roundabouts, night driving and your driving test maneuvers.

A Driving School in Ballydehob you can count on

When we were in school we all had our favorite teachers, the ones that engaged us and made learning fun. And then we had the opposite, those teachers that had no place in the classroom. Not all teachers are made equal and that is no less true with driving instructors. It's not as simple as searching 'Driving Lessons Ballydehob' and picking the first driving school you find. Who can you trust to give you that fun and engaging driving lesson experience?

Knowledge and professionalism is what you need from a driving instructor. A place where students are consistently passing their driving test first time.

Audrey O'Brien pass her test with RSA School of Motoring

I was so nervous at the thoughts of doing my driving test. As soon as I took pretests I felt at ease. My instructor was great, gave me the confidence it took for me to pass the test. I am so happy I went with RSA School of Motoring because without the help and guidance from my instructor I would not have sat the test. Highly recommended & thank you so much. I will certainly pass the details on to anybody I know doing the test!

We have helped countless pupils pass the driving test so before you carry on your search we encourage you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driver training in Ballydehob. Read on to discover why.

Most of our students fall under one of the following. Either you have your EDT done and need to prepare for the driving test. Or you are a total beginner and need to start or finish off your Essential Driver Training.

What's the difference?

The EDT: The history?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballydehob EDT Driving Lessons Ballydehob

You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. The Road Safety Authority had to do something so they designed a new training syllabus that all new drivers had to complete. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The EDT syllabus requires that 12 structured driving lessons have to be completed, stamped and uploaded to the RSA website by a registered ADI.

Learning to drive safely means understanding and practicing specific driving skills and these 12 EDT lessons have been intended to accomplish that.

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

Getting yourself ready for the Driving Test in Ballydehob

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballydehob Pretest Driving Lessons Ballydehob

The art of driving safely and the art of passing the driving 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 Ballydehob pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the situations 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. Our approach removes all the unknowns and associated fear that comes with it.

Most driving instructors will keep giving you lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. They 'think' you are ready but they do not really 'know'. And they do this because they do not truly understand the driving test, how you will be graded or what areas of your driving will cause you to fail. Luckily this is not how we operate. All our instructors have been trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.

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.
