Driving Lessons Thurles 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. Which is why we continually train and upskill our instructors to not only give you the best driving lesson experience there is to be had in Thurles but also to give you a calm relaxed environment to learn in. You will never see our instructors lose their cool.
Here is why students call us the best driving school in Thurles
Our instructors have been trained to quickly recognise what level you are at, where your bad habits are and what remedial measures should be taken to guarantee you make the most progress possible from each lesson with us.
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.
This supportive material is to help you progress faster and stay safe. Our course walks you through the Essential Driver Training syllabus and helps with aspects of your driving like right and left turns giving you a better theoretical understanding of what safe driving really is. This additional free training material is not offered by any other driving school in Thurles.

Who can you believe in to offer you that enjoyable and engaging driving lesson experience?
Obviously you want to choose a driving school that has a fantastic track record. A driving school that gets students to pass the driving test.
We have helped hundreds of students pass the test so before you carry on your search we urge you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driver training in Thurles. Read on to discover why.
Which category do you fall under? You have an imminent driving test coming up or you want to start preparing for one before you book. Or you have never driven before and need to get your Essential Driver Training started.
Let us start there.
What exactly is Essential Driver Training?
EDT Driving Lessons Thurles
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.
This EDT 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 Driving Test: Essential preparation
Pretest Driving Lessons Thurles
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. The test is your chance to show that you are safe enough to drive unaccompanied. As with any exam you have ever had to sit, 80% of passing the driving test is accomplished long before the day of the test with proper preparation.
If you haven't done any preparation for your driving test the your are in the dark and being in the dark can cause a lot of fears to rise up. Fear can distract even the most experienced of drivers. So it stands to reason that we have to shine a light in the dark, remove the unknowns and the anxiety. Which is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.
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.
We don’t like leaving things to chance. We simulate for you all 4 stages of the test, teach you all the test routes and focus on the areas of your driving that are most likely to get you the most marks or fail you.
Using this method we get our student past the test in half the time it takes other driving school. Passing fast means you save money.
