Driving Lessons Garryowen Residents Love
Fear of driving is a very common and we understand it is very important to provide the right atmosphere for our students. There most definitely should be no yelling involved. It's our responsibility to make sure you are comfortable behind the wheel. Which is why our instructors get that little bit extra training above the standard you'll usually see out there. Driving instruction is about listening and responding to your needs. And this is exactly where the expertise of our driving instructors is focused. Bridging the gap and turning a nervous beginner into a safe, confident driver.

Obviously you want to choose a driving school that has a fantastic record. A driving school that gets students to pass the driving test.
Rachael Buggle passed the test with RSA School of Motoring
I failed my test several times and had lost faith in my ability to actually pass the test. A friend suggested that I contact the School of Motoring for a new instructor. They suggested who specialized in aiding those who had not been successful. After a few lessons I was ready to sit my test again and passed it. I highly recommend this school and this instructor. I don't think I would have passed my test without their help.
Another one passes the test. Well done JC Clarke
Very happy with my time with the RSA. They paired me the right instructor and passed on my 2nd attempt. Was very nervous for the first few lessons but instructor was very helpful, relaxed and calm which helped me a great deal. Couldn't speak more highly of him.
We now have helped countless pupils pass the driving test so before you continue your search we urge you to consider RSA School of Motoring for your driving lessons in Garryowen. Read on to discover 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.
So here is a little information on our approach.
The EDT: The facts?
EDT Driving Lessons Garryowen
Fact! Ireland has one of the worst road death statistics in Europe. The Essential Driver Training Syllabus was created by the Road Safety Authority to help combat the issue.
This EDT requires that all learners must complete a minimum of 12 hours of essential driver training by an RSA approved driving instructor.
In an attempt to lower crashes and fill the apparent driving skills gap that many new road users were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was developed.
That's the 'whats' and 'whys' of the EDT.
The Test: Crucial preparation
Pretest Driving Lessons Garryowen
Training to pass the driving test is completely different from learning to drive. Long before sitting the driving test you should have the necessary skills and understanding to drive without putting your life or the lives of others in danger. Our Garryowen pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the situations you will be placed under.
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. So it makes perfect sense that we have to shine a light in the dark, remove the unknowns and the fear. Which is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.
Our pretest driving lessons packages have been refined over many decades to give you a deep understanding of what will happen on test day leaving you without any doubt or fear.
We're not in the business of gambling on your success. 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. That means less lessons and less expense to you.
