Killorglin Driving School

EDT Lessons

RSA Approved Driving Instructor. Professional, Patient, Understanding tuition.


Essential Driver Training (EDT) is a structured training programme for learner drivers consisting of 12 driving sessions with an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI)

The purpose of EDT is to save lives. Getting a driving licence is a privilege, not a right. As a learner driver you are exposed to greater risks when using the roads due to inexperience. Maximising your road safety knowledge and behaviours helps you to develop the skills and confidence needed to share the road safely with others. By completing EDT you will build a strong foundation on which to become a better and safer driver. 

EDT for learner drivers is a 12-hour course delivered in 12 one-hour sessions. At Killorglin Driving School each pupil is taught on a individual basis. This means we take into account your existing driving skills and rate of progression through the 12 EDT lessons. 

Your preparation for a lifetime of safe driving may not stop with Just your 12 EDT lessons, so be sure to ask our advice on how you should proceed after you complete your EDT lessons.

Florence is  registered with the Road Safety Authority (RSA) to deliver the EDT Course (EDT Driving Lessons).
