We can guide you through all the stages of learning to drive. From passing your Theory Test to learning behind the wheel, practising to become a better driver, the new mandatory 'EDT' lessons, and pretests to attain the high standard required to pass the practical Driving Test. We can also give Motorway lessons after passing your driving test. In some circumstances you may qualify for a FREE Motorway lesson!

 

Theory Test Tuition

we can book your Theory Test for youPreparing for the Theory Test can be a daunting task, especially when you see how many pages are in the Theory Test book. We help you break down the sections that need to be covered into easy-to-understand smaller modules which are much easier to handle. As you work your way through these modules we will support you with regular contact, meeting with you to review any areas which might be causing you concern, and completing 'mock theory tests' using the Theory Test CD. You will be 100% prepared for the Theory Test and confident in your own ability having completed the mock tests. GET IT RIGHT FIRST TIME and save yourself time + €s! We can even book the Theory Test for you.

    Driving Lessons

    RoofsignWhether you're a first-time learner or have more experience we tailor each lesson to your training needs. Planned lessons with clearly defined objectives and lesson reviews at the end help to focus the learner's concentration on the lesson. We support the lessons using additional training aids and handouts, explaining the subject being taught using clear graphics. The pupil can take these home to help them practice between lessons.

     

    Essential Driver Training

    If your first learner permit was issued on or after 4th April 2011 you must complete Essential Driver Training before you are allowed to take your driving test. If your first learner permit was issued before 4th April 2011 then EDT is not required. EDT  was introduced by the RSA as part of their Graduated Driver Licensing measures in an attempt to increase driving skills and decrease accidents especially among younger drivers. EDT consists of 12 individual lessons which must be undertaken with an Approved Driving Instructor. The ADI records your progress at the end of each lesson in your personal logbook and also stamps it. The pupil brings the completed logbook with them to their driving test to prove they have completed the EDT program. The RSA recommends spreading the 12 EDT lessons over 6 months or one every 2 weeks. They recommend each EDT lesson should last 1 hour. A sponsor must be chosen who will supervise the pupil's practice between EDT lessons.

    Pretests

    We can help you prepare for your test and get you to the required standard to pass it. Your instructor will:

    1. evaluate your driving and give you feedback on where you might need to focus/improve.

    2. explain the test form so you understand every aspect of the test ahead of you.

    3. take you on the test routes where you intend to do your test in either Portlaoise, Tullamore or Birr.

    4. prepare you for the 'technical checks', 'secondary controls', and 'rules/checks' sections of the driving test.

    5. perform 'Mock Tests' with you.
