On the 4th  of April 2011, Essential Driver Training (EDT)  becoame compulsory for first time Car learner permit holders. Essential Driver Training (EDT) is a mandatory training course that teaches fundamental driving skills to learner car drivers. It is part of the RSA’s Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) scheme and is intended to improve road safety.

All new learner drivers who receive their learner permits, after 4th April 2011 will be subject to 12 one hour lessons before applying for their driving test. EDT candidates will also be required to have an  Essential Driver Training Logbook. This logbook needs to be filled in & signed off after every E.D.T. lesson by a qualifed A.D.I instructor who will have all the documents you will need.

The R.S.A. (Road Safety Authority) recommends that E.D.T. Lessons 1-12 should be spread out over the first 6 months of your new learner permit. They also suggest that the student takes lots of practice in their own time with the help of a sponsor i.e. parent,guardian or family friend who is also a fully licensed driver. We also urge you to shop around for the best prices, with our low prices we offer value for money. If you need any more information please contact us on driving lessons in Waterford.
