So you get the most out of each lesson we've trained all our instructors on how to quickly profile you so that you work on the areas of your driving that need the most work.

We have always maintained a focus on a want to give our students more. 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.

Our extra bonus training will give you the head start all your EDT driving lessons, on road rules and on the driving test. This additional free training material is not offered by any other driving school in Ballygunner.

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.

RSA School of Motoring Review

Gillian Nolan

Gillian Nolan passed the test with RSA School of Motoring

The best motor school in Cork! My instructor Joe, he is a brilliant teacher with excellent tips & advice. He's also a bit of craic! I became much more confident and noticeably a better driver within my first 2-3 lessons. The pricing is very reasonable and Joe works with you to best fit your schedule. I wouldn't recommend any other motor school, these guys are by far the best!

Most of our students fall under one of the following. You have an imminent driving test coming up or you want to start preparing for one before you book. Or you have never driven before and need to get your Essential Driver Training started.

So here is a little information on our approach.

What is Essential Driver Training?

EDT Driving Lessons Ballygunner EDT Driving Lessons Ballygunner

It is an depressing fact that Ireland is one of the worst countries in Europe for road deaths and accidents. In an effort to stem these statistics the Road Safety Authority implemented a new and compulsory training initiative for new drivers. 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.

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.

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

The Test: Essential preparation

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballygunner Pretest Driving Lessons Ballygunner

First you must master the rules of the road, the road signs and skills involved to control a car safely. Then you must master the conditions of the driving test and understand what to expect. Being allowed to drive alone on Ballygunner roads is a privilege you will need to earn and the driving test is your chance 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. They so often get the best of even the most seasoned driver. Our approach removes all the unknowns and associated fear that comes with it.

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.

Complete your pretest training with is and not only will you fully grasp all four stages of the driving test, you'll know the possible test routes you may be brought on and you'll know precisely how the tester will talk to you and what they specifically want you to demonstrate.
