What is the EDT?
EDT Driving Lessons Waterford
Fact! Ireland has one of the worst road death statistics in Europe. The Essential Driver Training Syllabus was brought in by the Road Safety Authority to help combat the issue.
The EDT consists of 12 compulsory lessons that must be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all learner drivers.
Learning to drive safely means understanding and exercising specific driving skills and these 12 EDT lessons have been designed to do just that.

The Driving Test: Crucial preparation
Pretest Driving Lessons Waterford
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. Our Waterford pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the situations you will be placed under.
If your test is booked there is a lot of unknowns and fears to contend with. Fear can distract even the most experienced of drivers. Our approach removes all the unknowns and associated fear that comes with it.
It is standard practice by many driving instructors to 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.
We don’t like leaving things to chance. 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.
