Here is why people call us the top driving school in Carrigaline

Our instructors have been trained to quickly recognise what level you are at, where your bad habits are and what remedial measures should be taken to guarantee you make the most progress possible from each lesson with us.

As well as this higher standard of driving instruction you receive on driving lessons with us we also have our online training guides, tutorials and support material, all delivered periodically direct to your inbox.

This is just one initiative that sets us apart from the competition in Carrigaline. We have seen pupils learn 3-4 times faster with our home study training. Lessons come and go fast and it is easy to forget what you have learned. Our extra lesson material means you can follow up on what was covered before the next lesson ensuring you don't waste time and money going over the same things.

A Driving School in Carrigaline you can rely 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 real with approved driving instructors. It's not as simple as Googling 'Driving Lessons Carrigaline' and choosing the first driving school you stumble upon. Who can you have faith in to give you that fun and engaging driving lesson experience?

Knowledge and professionalism is what you need from a driving instructor. A driving school that gets students to pass the driving test.

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

Rob Bowes

Another one passes the test. Well done Rob Bowes

I got in touch with two weeks before my test on a recommendation from a friend. Within the first lesson was able to tell me exactly what I needed to fix in order to pass my test. I was feeling confident that I knew what had to be done going into the test to be successful. knew exactly what he was doing and is clearly very experienced in teaching driving as due to his help I passed first time after 3 lessons with him. Can't thank enough! Highly recommend.

RSA School of Motoring have the exact reputation for pupil success we have been talking about and we have the verified testimonials to prove it. So if you need driving instruction you would be getting a head start choosing us. Let us show you why.

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.

Let us start there.

What exactly is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Carrigaline EDT Driving Lessons Carrigaline

You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. To help stem these stats the Road Safety Authority introduced a new and mandatory 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.

This 12 lesson syllabus has been designed to ensure young drivers practice vital driving skills and develop a more comprehensive understanding of road safety.

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

The Test: Essential preparation

Pretest Driving Lessons Carrigaline Pretest Driving Lessons Carrigaline

There is learning the vital driving skills and developing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. Then you must master the conditions of the driving test and understand what to expect. Being allowed to drive by yourself on Carrigaline roads is a freedom you will need to earn and the driving test is your opportunity to do it. As with any exam you have ever had to sit, 80% of passing the driving test is accomplished long before the day of the test with correct preparation.

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.

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.
