What is Essential Driver Training?
EDT Driving Lessons Skibbereen
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.
The EDT consists of 12 compulsory lessons that must be delivered by a RSA approved driving instructor to all learner drivers.
In an attempt to lower crashes and fill the apparent driving skills gap that many new motorists were lacking, the 12 lesson syllabus was developed.
