Generally pupils are one of the following. You are either starting or need to complete your EDT driving lessons. Or you need to start your driving test preparation.
So here is a little information on our approach.
What exactly is the EDT?EDT Driving Lessons Portlaw
It is an sad fact that Ireland is one of the worst countries in Europe for road deaths and accidents. In an effort to reduce these statistics the Road Safety Authority implemented a new and compulsory training initiative for new drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.
This Essential Driver Training Syllabus requires that all learners must complete a minimum of 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.
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 Test: Crucial preparationPretest Driving Lessons Portlaw
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 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'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.
