What exactly is Essential Driver Training?
EDT Driving Lessons Ballina
You may not know but many years ago Ireland had one of the worst road accident records in Europe. The Road Safety Authority had to do something so they designed a new training syllabus that all new drivers had to complete. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.
The EDT consists of 12 compulsory lessons that must be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all learner drivers.
In an attempt to lower accidents and fill the evident driving skills gap that many new motorists were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was created.
That's the 'whats' and 'whys' of the EDT.
The Test: Crucial preparation
Pretest Driving Lessons Ballina
First you must master the rules of the road, the road signs and skills involved to control a car safely. Then you must master the conditions of the driving test and understand what to expect. Being allowed to drive alone on Ballina roads is a freedom you will need to earn and the driving test is your chance to do it. And naturally, as with any test, if you understand the conditions and what to expect you can pass easily.
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. 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.
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. 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.
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 exactly how the tester will speak to you and what they specifically want you to demonstrate.
