A Driving School in Banna Strand you can rely on
When we were in school we all had our favorite teachers, the ones that engaged us and made learning fun. And we remember the lousy teachers that had no business teaching anyone. Not all teachers are made equal and that is no less real with approved driving instructors. It is easy to Google 'Driving Lessons Banna Strand' and find driving instructors near you but which can you trust to best teach you.
You need a driving instructor with a reputation built on experience and student success. A place where students are routinely passing their driving test first time.
We have helped countless students pass the test so before you continue your search we encourage you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driving lessons in Banna Strand. Keep reading to discover why.
Most of our students fall under one of the following. 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.
So here is a little information on our approach.
What exactly is Essential Driver Training?
EDT Driving Lessons Banna Strand
It is an depressing fact that Ireland is among the worst countries in Europe for road deaths and accidents. To help stem these stats the Road Safety Authority implemented a new and mandatory training initiative for new drivers. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.
This EDT requires that all learners must complete a minimum of 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.
This 12 lesson syllabus has been designed to ensure young drivers practice vital driving skills and develop a more comprehensive understanding of road safety.
That's the 'whats' and 'whys' of the EDT.
Getting yourself ready for the Driving Test in Banna Strand
Pretest Driving Lessons Banna Strand
There is learning the vital driving skills and developing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. Then you must master the conditions of the driving test and understand what to expect. Being allowed to drive alone on Banna Strand 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 have to prepare for the driving test then your head is probably a wash with different emotions. Fear of failing, fear of nerves getting the better of you or just fear of the unknown. The good news is you don't need to worry any more.
Most driving instructors will 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. 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.

The Test: Crucial preparation
Pretest Driving Lessons Ballyheige
There is learning the vital driving skills and developing your knowledge of road signs and road safety. 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. 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.
Most driving instructors will 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.
We're not in the business of gambling on your success. 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. Passing fast means you save money.
