Driving Lessons Cork

Driving Lessons Cork People Love

A Driving School Cork Trusts

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. Creating a learning environment like this starts with us and our instructors. Which is why our instructors get that little bit extra training above the standard you'll usually see out there. Driving instruction is about listening and responding to your needs. In the end that is what being a driving instructor is all about. You, your needs and affordable quality driving lessons in Cork.

Here is why students call us the top driving school in Cork

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 want you to feel like you have made great progress after each lesson, both in practice and understanding which is why our ADI's are trained to home in on your weakest areas ensuring time isn't wasted on areas of your driving that are fine.

Another thing we see a lot is students coming back for a follow up lesson having forgotten much of what was covered in the lesson before. Which is why we created our own unique training guides and tutorials to support you throughout your driver training.

No other Cork Driving Schools offer free material like ours. With our free home study support material you'll be prepared for every lesson and develop faster as a driver than with any other driving school. 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 Cork 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 we remember the bad teachers that had no business teaching anyone. Not all teachers are made equal and that is no less real with driving instructors. It's not as straightforward as Googling 'Driving Lessons Cork' and choosing the first driving school you find. Who can you believe in to offer you that fun and engaging experience?

You need a driving instructor with a reputation built on experience and student success. A driving school that gets pupils past the test.

RSA School of Motoring Review

Maggie Gevers

Congratulations Maggie Gevers who chose us for their pretest driving lessons

I failed my driving test four times until I came here and got a few lessons with . It seriously turned my driving around, and I passed the test this morning! Highly highly recommend.

RSA School of Motoring Review

Rachael Buggle

Rachael Buggle passed the test with RSA School of Motoring

I failed my test several times and had lost faith in my ability to actually pass the test. A friend suggested that I contact the School of Motoring for a new instructor. They suggested who specialized in aiding those who had not been successful. After a few lessons I was ready to sit my test again and passed it. I highly recommend this school and this instructor. I don't think I would have passed my test without their help.

We have helped hundreds of pupils pass the test so before you continue your search we urge you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driving lessons in Cork. Keep reading to find out why.

Essential Driver Training: The history?

EDT Driving Lessons Cork EDT Driving Lessons Cork

You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. In an effort to control these statistics the Road Safety Authority implemented a new and mandatory training initiative for new 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.

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.

Preparing for the Test in Cork

Pretest Driving Lessons Cork Pretest Driving Lessons Cork

Training to pass the driving test is completely different from learning to drive. You should already have the vital driving skills and road safety knowledge before applying for the test. Pretest training is about understanding the driving test itself and how you can beat it.

If you have to prepare for the driving test then your head is probably a wash with different emotions. We naturally fear what we don't understand and the unknown. Well fear not.

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'. 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 potential test routes you may be brought on and you'll know exactly how the tester will speak to you and what they specifically want you to demonstrate.
