What is EDT?
Essential Driver Training (EDT) is a mandatory training course that teaches fundamental driving skills to learner car drivers. The EDT course consists of 12 driving lessons. It is part of the RSA's Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) scheme and is intended to improve road safety. EDT is only part of the learning process; you will need lots of practice and may need more lessons to become a competent driver.
Do I need my own car to Learn to drive?
We advise pupils to learn in our manual training car to begin with, this helps gain experience driving before being comfortable in pupil's car. (Although each pupil's level of experience differs)
