Getting Started

Essential Driver Training Explained

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 received their Learner Permits on, or after 4th April 2011 MUST complete a minimum 12 x one-hour lessons* before applying for their driving test. These 12 Lessons are the EDT (Essential Driver Training).

EDT (Essential Driver Training) candidates will also be required to have an Essential Driver Training Logbook. This logbook will be filled in & signed off after every EDT lesson by your qualified ISM ADI Instructor.

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) recommend that all 12 EDT Lessons should be spread out over the first 6 months of your new Learner Permit. They also suggest that Learner Drivers take filler lessons in between these EDT lessons if necessary.

It is also recommended to get lots of practice with the help of a sponsor i.e. parent, guardian or family friend who possesses a Full Licence a minimum of two years. Make sure you are insured for this practice.

THE BENEFITS TO YOU

Completing your Essential Driver Training Course (EDT) will help you to:

  • understand what it means to be a better, safer driver.
  • practice driving skills in a structured way focused on your own learning needs.
  • develop lifelong skills that will make you a better safer driver.
