Paul Kinsella passed the test with RSA School of Motoring

I just passed my test today all thanks and credit goes to my instructor. I have been driving for some years and had failed my test on a couple of occasions. I decided to change test centers and contacted RSA School of Motoring a couple of weeks prior to my driving test and had 2 lessons and also a pre-test on the day of my driving test. you showed true professionalism in what you do I cant thank you enough. You Identified the grey areas were I was going wrong and I was put right at ease with your patience and understanding. Having that knowledge and experience sitting beside me advising me on what was required and expected of me just gave me great confidence on the day of the test. I certainly will recommend RSA to anyone I know and will highly recommend . Thanks again.

What exactly is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Barleycove EDT Driving Lessons Barleycove

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 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 lower crashes and fill the apparent driving skills gap that many new road users were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was created.

Want to know more about how the EDT works?

Getting ready for the Test in Barleycove

Pretest Driving Lessons Barleycove Pretest Driving Lessons Barleycove

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 Barleycove roads is a freedom 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 the thoughts of sitting the driving test are overwhelming you then you are not the first to feel like this. We naturally fear what we don't understand and the unknown. The good news is you don't need to worry any more.

It is standard practice by many driving instructors to keep giving you lessons until they 'think' you are ready. They 'think' you are ready but they do not really 'know'. That is because of a total lack of understanding on how the tester thinks and marks you during the test. This is not how we do things. 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.

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.
