EDT (Essential Driver Training)
Anyone who has their first learners permit issued after 04th April 2011 must complete EDT before they can attempt the practical driving test. EDT consists of 12 one hour lessons. Each lesson covers certain critical driving skills with the overall aim being to help the learner to become a safe and competent driver.
EDT can only be delivered by an approved driving instructor (ADI). My ADI reg. is 36050. You can see a list of ADI’s on the RSA website. As each lesson is completed the learners progress will be recorded in a logbook (supplied by myself). You should also have a Sponsor, an experienced driver (many learner drivers choose a family member) who will supervise your driving practice outside of lessons.
After you finish your EDT course, you may still need additional lessons with an ADI to improve your driving skills. Additionally, you should practice with your Sponsor as much as possible to get comfortable behind the wheel. On the day of your driving test you should bring your completed logbook on the appointed test date, as you may be required to show it to the examiner.
