WHY WE SAY WE ARE THE BEST DRIVING SCHOOL IN Kinsale

Being a good driving instructor means listening to the needs of the pupil, asking the right questions and responding with the correct remedial action and advice to turn you into an excellent thoughtful driver. Something our instructors are true experts at.

This level of driving instruction is fantastic but we also feel that gaps between lessons can often slow progress so all our pupils also get free access to our online training platform to help reinforce their learning.

No other Kinsale Driving Schools offer free material like ours. We have seen pupils learn 3-4 times faster with our home study training. 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 Kinsale you can trust

We all remember the exciting engaging teacher in school that made learning fun and easy. 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 is easy to Google 'Driving Lessons Kinsale' and find driving instructors near you but which can you trust to best teach you.

Naturally you want to pick a driving school that has a fantastic reputation. A place where pupils are regularly passing their driving test first time.

RSA School of Motoring Review

Another one passes the test. Well done niamh lalor

Passed first time! I just want to say a big thank you to my driving instructor and the RSA School of Motoring for helping me pass successfully on my first attempted... Was an amazing instructor who showed me how I should drive and spent a lot of time refining my techniques to the level required to pass. He also worked on making me a confident and calm driver which was a big advantage on the day of my test...I heard of the RSA School of Motoring through a work colleague who said they were extremely good and helped her pass successfully. I'm so glad she recommend them and I would definitely recommend them to anyone learning to drive. I can now say I feel confident enough to drive anywhere on my own :)

We now have helped hundreds of learners pass the test so before you carry on your search we urge you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driver training in Kinsale. Let us show you why.

So here is a little information on our approach.

The EDT: The facts?

EDT Driving Lessons Kinsale EDT Driving Lessons Kinsale

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.

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.

The Driving Test: Essential preparation

Pretest Driving Lessons Kinsale Pretest Driving Lessons Kinsale

Training to pass the driving test is completely different from learning to drive. Long before sitting the driving test you should have the necessary skills and understanding to drive without putting your life or the lives of others in danger. Our Kinsale pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the conditions you will be placed under.

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. Often they will send you to do the test not really knowing if you will pass or not. And they do this because they do not truly understand the driving test, how you will be graded or what areas of your driving will cause you to fail. Luckily this is not how we operate. 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 precisely how the tester will speak to you and what they specifically want you to demonstrate.
