At RSA School of Motoring we take a refreshingly different approach to driver training. Good driving instruction is about passion, about listening to the student and pushing them to excel.

Here is why students call us the best driving school in Dunmanway
Being a good driving instructor means listening to the needs of the pupil, asking the right questions and responding with the correct remedial action and advice to turn you into an excellent thoughtful driver. Something our instructors are true experts at.
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 is just one initiative that sets us apart from the competition in Dunmanway. Many of our pupils have even attributed it to their fast progress and development. Covering vital driving skills like driving at night, road positioning and traffic progression this training is like having your own driving instructor with you 24/7.

The EDT: The facts?
EDT Driving Lessons Dunmanway
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.
This Essential Driver Training Syllabus 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 Test: Essential preparation
Pretest Driving Lessons Dunmanway
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. Being allowed to drive alone on Dunmanway roads is a privilege you will need to earn and the driving test is your chance to do it. Like any exam you have ever had to sit, 80% of passing the driving test is achieved long before the day of the test with correct preparation.
If the thoughts of sitting the driving test are overwhelming you then you are not the first to feel like this. Fear of failing, fear of nerves getting the better of you or just fear of the unknown. Well fear not.
Our tried and tested pretest training packages have been developed to specifically help you overcome your nerves and come out with a deep understanding on what will happen 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. Passing fast means you save money.
