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.

Pass your test in Thurles

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.

Refreshingly Good Driving Lessons in Thurles

When we were in school we all had our favorite teachers, the ones that engaged us and made learning fun. And we can recall the bad teachers that had no business teaching anyone. Not all teachers are made equal and that is no less a fact with approved driving instructors. It's not as straightforward as Googling 'Driving Lessons Thurles' and picking the first driving school you find. 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.

RSA School of Motoring Review

Keith Keogh

Keith Keogh passed the test with RSA School of Motoring

I contacted RSA School of Motoring a week prior to my driving test and had 2 lessons and also a pre-test on the day of my driving test. The advice I was given and things I learned from RSA is fantastic, I was put right at ease and given great confidence for the test and needless to say I passed!!!! I would highly recommend RSA School of Motoring to anybody applying for their driving test.

RSA School of Motoring Review

niamh lalor

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 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 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 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.
