What is Essential Driver Training?
EDT Driving Lessons Ballygunner
It is an depressing fact that Ireland is one of the worst countries in Europe for road deaths and accidents. In an effort to stem these statistics the Road Safety Authority implemented a new and compulsory training initiative for new drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.
The EDT syllabus requires that 12 structured driving lessons have to be completed, stamped and uploaded to the RSA website by a registered ADI.
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: Essential preparation
Pretest Driving Lessons Ballygunner
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 Ballygunner roads is a privilege 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 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.
