Let us start there.
The EDT: What is it?
EDT Driving Lessons Valentia Island
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.
Learning to drive safely means understanding and practicing particular driving skills and these 12 EDT lessons have been designed to accomplish that.

The Test: Crucial preparation
Pretest Driving Lessons Valentia Island
The skill of driving safely and the art of passing the test should not be confused as the same. You should already have the vital driving skills and road safety knowledge before applying for the test. Our Valentia Island pretest driving lessons are designed to show you how to beat the test by understanding the situations you will be placed under.
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. The good news is you don't need to worry any more.
Most driving instructors will keep giving you lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. They 'think' you are ready but they do not really 'know'. And they do this because they do not truly understand the driving test, how you will be graded or what areas of your driving will cause you to fail. Luckily this is not how we operate. 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 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. That means less lessons and less expense to you.
