RSA School of Motoring Review

Niamh O' Farrell

Niamh O' Farrell passed the test with RSA School of Motoring

Just passed my test this morning all thanks to the help from ! I had taken the test twice over the last few years and failed and wasn't thrilled about trying it a 3rd time because of the previous results, but got recommended to by a friend so after only 3 hours in total of pre tests I passed, delighted! knows what he is talking about and guides you through the testing routes very calmly,professionally and puts you at ease with the overall test and what is expected of you. I can't recommend him enough as an instructor and I wouldn't have passed without him. Thanks a mill :)

RSA School of Motoring Review

Shane Dunne

Congratulations Shane Dunne who chose us for their pretest driving lessons

Brilliant service. I was nervous about my upcoming driving test. But RSA were great, they put me at my ease, pointed out my strengths and my weaknesses. After a couple of lessons i have eliminated those weaknesses and i was confident and ready to go !!! They were definitely that lead to my passing. Thanks guys .

We now have helped countless learners pass the test so before you carry on your search we encourage you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driving lessons in Durrus. Let us explain to you 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 have never driven before and need to get your Essential Driver Training started.

Let us start there.

What is the EDT?

EDT Driving Lessons Durrus EDT Driving Lessons Durrus

It is an depressing fact that Ireland is one of the worst countries in Europe for road deaths and accidents. 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.

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.

Preparing for the Test in Durrus

Pretest Driving Lessons Durrus Pretest Driving Lessons Durrus

First you must master the rules of the road, the road signs and skills involved to control a car safely. And then there is learning to pass the driving test. Being allowed to drive by yourself on Durrus roads is a freedom you must 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. Fear of failing, fear of nerves getting the better of you or just fear of the unknown. Well fear not.

It is standard practice by many driving instructors to keep giving you lessons until they 'think' you are ready. Often they will send you to do the test not really knowing if you will pass or not. 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.

We're not in the business of gambling on your success. Our pretest training fully simulates the 4 different stages of the driving test and fully prepares you for the way the tester will talk to you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we share this knowledge and understanding with our students it is like giving them all the answers to an exam before they even know the questions. Which is why so many of our student pass first time. That means less lessons and less expense to you.
