A Driving School in Monkstown you can rely on

It's not as straightforward as Googling 'Driving Lessons Monkstown' and picking the first driving school you stumble upon. Who can you have faith in to give you that enjoyable and engaging experience?
Knowledge and professionalism is what you need from a driving instructor. A place where learners are regularly passing their driving test first time.

I had taken the test twice over the last few years and failed and wasn't thrilled about trying it a 3rd time because of the previous results, but got recommended to by a friend so after only 3 hours in total of pre tests I passed, delighted! knows what he is talking about and guides you through the testing routes very calmly,professionally and puts you at ease with the overall test and what is expected of you. I can't recommend him enough as an instructor and I wouldn't have passed without him. Thanks a mill :)

Let us start there.
What exactly is Essential Driver Training?
EDT Driving Lessons Monkstown
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 EDT 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.

Pretest Driving Lessons Monkstown
Training to pass the driving test is completely different from learning to drive. You should already have the vital driving skills and road safety knowledge before applying for the test. Our Monkstown pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the conditions you will be placed under.
If you have to prepare for the driving test then your head is probably a wash with different emotions. We naturally fear what we don't understand and the unknown. But with RSA School of Motoring you don't have to be afraid.
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.
Complete your pretest training with is and not only will you understand all four stages of the driving test, you'll know the potential test routes you may be brought on and you'll know precisely how the tester will speak to you and what they specifically want you to demonstrate.
