Driving Lessons Ferrybank Residents Love
At RSA School of Motoring we take a refreshingly different approach to driver training. Our years of experience has taught us that you the student are only as good as the teacher. Striking this balance is what we are best at. All our instructors are pushed to stay on top of their game so they can deliver driving lessons that bridge the gap between theory and practice and turn our students into thoughtful, safe drivers. That means no stress and no yelling.
WHY WE SAY WE ARE THE Preferred DRIVING SCHOOL IN Ferrybank
Everybody has bad habits and there is no such thing as a perfect driver. 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.
Taking one or two driving lessons a week in Ferrybank is often not enough for some students. 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.
We have seen students consistently progress faster with the use of our home study support material. You’ll find everything from tips to better handle your maneuvers to step by step material to support you through all of your EDT driving lessons. No other Ferrybank driving school offers such a comprehensive service as this.
A Driving School in Ferrybank you can count 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 a fact with driving instructors. It's not as simple as searching 'Driving Lessons Ferrybank' and choosing the first driving school you see. Who can you trust to offer you that fun and engaging driving lesson experience?
Knowledge and professionalism is what you need from a driving instructor. A place where students are consistently passing their driving test first time.
RSA School of Motoring have the exact track record of pupil success we have been talking about and we have the verified reviews to show it. So if you need driving lessons you would be getting a head start choosing us. Let us explain to 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 are a total beginner and need to start or finish off your Essential Driver Training.
Let us start there.
What exactly is Essential Driver Training?
EDT Driving Lessons Ferrybank
You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. To help control these statistics the Road Safety Authority implemented a new and compulsory training initiative for first time 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.
In an effort to lower accidents and fill the evident driving skills gap that many new road users were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was created.

Getting ready for the Driving Test in Ferrybank
Pretest Driving Lessons Ferrybank
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 Ferrybank roads is a right you must earn and the driving test is your opportunity 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. Well fear not.
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.
By the end you’ll understand fully the four stages of the test and understand exactly what the driving tester is looking for from you, how they will speak to you on the day and why and when the tester will mark the sheet.
