Another one passes the test. Well done niamh lalor
Passed first time! I just want to say a big thank you to my driving instructor and the RSA School of Motoring for helping me pass successfully on my first attempted... Was an amazing instructor who showed me how I should drive and spent a lot of time refining my techniques to the level required to pass. He also worked on making me a confident and calm driver which was a big advantage on the day of my test...I heard of the RSA School of Motoring through a work colleague who said they were extremely good and helped her pass successfully. I'm so glad she recommend them and I would definitely recommend them to anyone learning to drive. I can now say I feel confident enough to drive anywhere on my own :)
Another one passes the test. Well done Rob Bowes
I got in touch with two weeks before my test on a recommendation from a friend. Within the first lesson was able to tell me exactly what I needed to fix in order to pass my test. I was feeling confident that I knew what had to be done going into the test to be successful. knew exactly what he was doing and is clearly very experienced in teaching driving as due to his help I passed first time after 3 lessons with him. Can't thank enough! Highly recommend.
We now have helped countless learners pass the test so before you carry on your search we encourage you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driving lessons in Durrus. Let us explain to you why.
Most of our students fall under one of the following. Either you have your EDT done and need to prepare for the driving test. Or you have never driven before and need to get your Essential Driver Training started.
Let us start there.
What is the EDT?
EDT Driving Lessons Durrus
It is an depressing fact that Ireland is one of the worst countries in Europe for road deaths and accidents. 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 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.
Preparing for the Test in Durrus
Pretest Driving Lessons Durrus
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 by yourself on Durrus roads is a freedom you must 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 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.
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.
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. That means less lessons and less expense to you.
