Teaching Safer and Better Learners

Here at National Driving School we are committed to producing better, safer and law-abiding drivers. We emphasise the importance of driving and road safety to make our roads safer for everyone.

Still not sure if you need 12 EDT Driving lessons?

This is why you do:

  • To understand the rules and regulations of the road.
  • The EDT teaches fundamental driving skills to learners.
  • The 12 EDT lessons are part of RSA’s Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) which aims at road safety.
  • To be able to maintain road discipline and have respect towards other road users.
  • To avoid the common mistakes that motorists make while using the road.

Who needs to complete the 12 EDT lessons?

  • An individual who has attained the age of 16 years or above the age of 16 years.
  • Any individual who has issued a learner permit on or after 4th April 2011.
  • Any individual who wishes to acquire a driver’s license.
  • Young inexperienced drivers who have not undergone actual driving lessons from a well-established driving school that has been approved by the Road Safety Authority (RSA).
  • All motorists that are using the roads to ensure that road safety rules are observed.

When it comes to the cost, the prices of the 12 EDT lessons vary depending on the number of hours that you want to take and also the nature of the driving course as shown in our detailed pricing page here.

The 12 EDT lessons

The 12 EDT lessons are discussed below in accordance with the Road Safety Authority (RSA) syllabus.

EDT Lesson 1 - Car controls and safety checks
For one to achieve the desired results of the lesson he/she should familiarise with the rules and regulations of the road and the vehicle that you are going to use. Your sponsor or ADI should assist you on how to use the brakes and the steering wheel, which are considered to be the primary controls. The ADI and the sponsor should also aid in teaching the learner how to use the secondary controls such as the lights, windscreens, and wipers.

During the EDT Lesson 1, you in get to familiarise with the vehicle and understanding the controls of the car and how to use the controls correctly. One also gets to learn about vehicle safety and how they can evaluate vehicle roadworthiness.

EDT Lesson 2 - Correct positioning
To have a successful outcome in EDT lesson 2, one must have completed EDT lesson 1. In this lesson the ADI should ensure that the learner can correctly position the vehicle on the road especially when taking corners, changing lanes, negotiating bends, negotiating junctions, entering and exiting junctions, correct positioning within traffic lanes and the ADI should also ensure that the learner can correctly drive straight on a road. The learner is also taught how to take the roundabout and the rules that apply when taking a roundabout.
EDT Lesson 3 - Changing direction
To enroll in EDT lesson 3, you must have completed lesson 1 and lesson 2. These lesson majors in ensuring that you are able to correctly turn left and right, turning in roundabouts and when negotiating junctions. An individual should know how to use indicators in order to signal other road users. At the end of the lesson, the learner should be able to use mirrors appropriately and he/she should be able to use the mirror, signal, mirror, manoeuvre,(MSMM) routine correctly.
EDT Lesson 4 - progression management
Once an individual has successfully completed lesson 1, lesson 2 and lesson 3, they can enroll for the EDT lesson 4. This lesson helps the learner to learn how to control his/her speed, to know the speed limits, the safety of other road users and the environment.
EDT Lesson 5 - Correct positioning (more complex situations)
In this lesson, the learner should be able to consistently maintain a safe braking distance and safe positioning while on the road. The learner also gets to acquire skills on how to share the road and how to park, reverse and a turnabout in challenging situations.
EDT Lesson 6 - Anticipation and reaction
This lesson equips one with the knowledge of the possible outcomes of driving in areas that have snow, roads that are filled with fog, in rainy areas and driving at night. One also gets to know how to choose and use the correct speed, keep safe distances and how to break correctly. Ones an individual has successfully completed the EDT lesson 6 they can proceed to the next level of EDT lesson 7, this is after the ADI has signed and recorded the learner’s progress on the learners RSA logbook.
EDT Lesson 7 - Sharing the road
A learner should ensure that he/she drives in a variety of conditions in order so that your ADI can be able to evaluate how you join, cross and enter roads. You should also learn how to negotiate your way around slow-moving motorists and other road users. This lesson teaches on road courtesy.
EDT Lesson 8 - Driving safely through traffic
This lesson teaches drivers how to act appropriately and decisively while driving through traffic. It describes risks of other road users and how to manage them well. The lesson also demonstrates how to use defensive driving techniques which do not impede reasonable progress or cause hesitation. They demonstrate a high level of co-operation with the other road users.
EDT Lesson 9 - Changing direction (more complex situations)
In this lesson, the learner learns how to change route safely with due consideration of the traffic controls. One can also change course safely with the regard of other road users. They can yield to other road users and are able to progress appropriately. The driving students are taught how to safely change course using mirror, signal, mirror, manoeuvre, (MSMM). After the successful completion of EDT lesson 9, an individual progresses to EDT lesson 10.
EDT Lesson 10 - Speed management
This lesson helps learners, to know how to manoeuvre their way through fast-moving traffic, to know how to manage and control their speeds, to independently make appropriate decisions in challenging situations and how to drive safely in areas with relatively high speed and terrible weather conditions that could make it difficult for one to drive.
EDT Lesson 11 - Driving calmly
During this lesson, learners are taught how to remain calm while handling a vehicle in instances where they are frustrated, angry, feel threatened, or exasperated. They mainly lose their calm in areas where they are joining busy roads, entering junctions while driving alone, parking in areas that have a significant number of cars parked there. The EDT lesson 12 ensures that the drivers can comfortably drive under high pressure calmly.
EDT Lesson 12 - Night driving
To achieve the objectives in EDT lesson 12 one has to make sure that you have successfully completed the EDT lesson 11.This lesson majors in teaching drivers how to use the vehicles lighting while driving, and how to correctly respond to the lights of other motorists. The lesson also enables learners to drive safely in the dark, in areas with poor lighting systems, and how to deal with poor vision during at night.

After the completion of each lesson, one is encouraged to keep practicing, as practicing is the key to perfecting all the skills that one has acquired during the lessons.

Feeling nervous and want to switch to automatic cars?

If you think you want to get those benefits mentioned above, we have the best instructors for the learners. You can enrol for the driving lessons for automatic driving and get the 12 EDT automatic driving lessons after getting the learning permit.

Point to note here that the driving license for the automatic car drivers comes with some restrictions as the driving license and test for the manual and automatic drivers are different. If you want to drive manual cars, you need to give a separate trial.

EDT Automatic driving lessons Dublin

We deliver the complete EDT Programmes 1-12 in our Automatic driving lessons. We can act as your sponsor if you didn’t have one, so there is no need to worry about that.

After completing 12 Lessons, we will assist you in progressing forward to apply for your full driving test after going through the pretest, which will prepare you thoroughly and polish your skills.

EDT Logbook

Why must you get a Road Safety Authority (RSA) logbook for your 12 EDT driving lesson?

Your logbook is highly essential since it’s needed whenever you’re going for each lesson, as it’s required to come with you on each RSA 12 EDT driving lesson.

The notebook contains all the comments from the ADI (assigned instructor) who have guided you through the previous lessons and the progress that you have made as an individual.

The RSA 12 EDT driving logbook is issued to the learner by the Approved Driving Instructor during the start of the first EDT lesson.

After the completion of the 12 EDT lessons, the ADI stamps the relevant section of the book to show completion and he/she records information in the logbook indicating if you met the objectives of each lesson and how competent you are.

The ADI can only sign and comment on lessons that he/she has instructed. Under any circumstances that you opt to change an ADI, he/she cannot sign on lessons that you previously took under the aid of another ADI.

This ensures that all ADI’s take responsibility for the lessons they teach and that they can be held accountable in case of any incident.

In an incident where your RSA logbook gets lost, you should report to the Gardai, before obtaining a duplicate logbook from your ADI.

The waiting period of obtaining the duplicate logbook can be long, thus one is required to ensure his/her logbook is safely kept as it also plays a major role when you are acquiring your driver’s license.

I passed my driving test yesterday at the first attempt all thanks to the guidance and support of Julia and Chris (Krzys) from National Driving School. I did my 12 EDT lessons with Julia in October, who made the lessons a lot of fun and had so much patience with me. Julia really knew when to push me and had me looking forward to each lesson. Chris (Krzys) then helped me with some pretest lessons and a mock test, and really gave me all the confidence to know I was ready to pass the test before it began. He was there to settle any nerves before the test and was there to celebrate my passing after the test as well. Chris (Krzys) really went above and beyond to help me pass! I couldn’t recommend Julia and Chris (Krzys) enough if you want to learn how to drive!

I just passed my manual car driving test today, I would highly recommend Kamil from National Drivinging School, I did 2 pretest lessions with Kamil, he helped me get ready for my driving test and had lots of useful material on road sings, roundabouts, junctions. Kamil was very calm and showed me where I was going wrong and helped me improve my driving so I passed today first time, I would highly recommend Kamil and the National Driving School fordriving lessions or pretest lessions.I could not have made this achievement without Kamil's help and valueable guidance, thank you so much for the professional help.

Hi everyone, Today I passed my car driving test at the Tallaght RSA Driving Test Center. I want to thank my driving instructor, Jay Hickey, from National Driving School, who taught manual car driving from scratch. I highly recommend anyone to the National Driving School and Jay Hickey. Great 12 driving lessons and pre-test classes. I got a lot of advice about driving a manual car. Finally, I passed the test on the first attempt itself. Once again Thank you Jay.KC

I just want to thank Chris from the National Driving School as I passed my driving test today! I had done my EDT lessons pre-covid and had got stuck in the long waiting list for Dun Laoghaire. I applied for a cancellation test and Jackie in the National Driving School rearranged some lessons so they could squeeze me in for a refresher lesson. Chris was so helpful and encouraging and I do not think I would have passed the test without this lesson. He was very engaged and sent me links to videos to watch and had a genuine interest in me passing. I am extremely happy and grateful that I have passed. Thank you again.

Hi , I could not recommend Clodagh Branagan from National Driving School any higher that is possible , Clodagh went above and beyond for our son Calum who went on and passed his driving test first time with the guidance from Clodagh. Calum felt so comfortable with Clodagh which makes all the difference when you’re nervous. Thanks Clodagh and National Driving School for all you have done for Calum 😊

Today I passed the driving test!!! My practice paid off! Almost couldn’t believe it! After failed three times, I finally found Mr Yang from National driving school. I can drive in other countries but can’t pass the driving test in Ireland cause I didn’t know what to prepare and practice. He knows what exactly the testers are looking for and corrected many of my bad habits ( which the previous instructor should have corrected me). Thank you so much Mr Yang and Good luck to you guys!

Today, I successfully passed my driving test, and I owe it all to the incredible support of Chris (Krzysztof). His guidance significantly boosted my confidence, and his invaluable tips, especially on the challenging reverse around a corner, made a crucial difference. I wholeheartedly recommend Chris; without him, I doubt I would have succeeded.

Absolutely delighted to have passed my driving test on my first attempt with an automatic car at Mulhuddart (Maple Close) thanks to my amazing instructor Kevin. I highly recommend Kevin as a driving instructor; he has so much knowledge and is very calm in the car. I learnt so many great tips and tricks that were invaluable on the day of the test. Even if you know how to drive already, you can't go wrong in getting a leson as a refresher. Thanks again Kevin for all your support and opening up a world of freedom for me!

Thanks to the amazing Clodagh at the National Driving School, I passed the test in Tallaght - something which I didn’t think was possible only a few months ago. Clodagh is a professional; her teaching style is consistent, up-to-date, patient, and encouraging. She is very knowledgeable and flexible in adapting lessons to focus on areas that needed improvement, and her clear explanations and constructive feedback have been invaluable in helping me improve my techniques and overcome my anxiety. Her commitment to safety and emphasis on responsible driving is second to none, and she is very friendly and approachable. I highly recommend Clodagh as a driving instructor and I’m very grateful for the positive learning experience.

I recently passed my driving test on first attempt with proper guidance and training of Mick. He is professional, very patient and helped me improve areas of weakness in driving. I worked on a shifting schedule but he always finds time to meet me on my free days. He also has a good sense of humour to calm my nerves during the practice. His constant reminder during our practice ( I can still hear his voice in my head to look at the mirrors lol ) paved the way to pass with flying colors. I highly recommend him as an instructor. Thank you for everything Mick.

Passed today from Tallaght Test Centre. Peter was my instructor. He is an awesome driving instructor! I breezed through all 12 EDT lessons and pre-test sessions with him. He's not just friendly and pleasant, but he shared some super handy tips that totally saved me on test day – passed on the first try, thanks to him! He didn't just tell me what I was doing wrong, he actually showed me with documents, photos, and videos. It made fixing mistakes very easy. Peter took me through all the routes so I would be familiar with them for test day. If you're looking for a friendly, calm and effective instructor, Peter's your guy. Highly recommend!Thanks again Peter and National Driving School for assigning him to me. Good luck!! ☺️

I truly couldn't have achieved the result today without his help. I would highly recommend him.

Keith Evans is an excellent instructor and has taught me so much, after a bad experience with a different driving school left me with zero confidence. I’m a very nervous driver and he has really taken that into account in his teaching style which has helped me tremendously. Would absolutely recommend Keith for anyone struggling with nerves or lack of confidence in their driving.

I passed first time this morning (9:15am) in Tallaght (Automatic), with all thanks to my amazing instructors one being the amazing Clodagh. I couldn’t recommend Clodagh enough ! She made me super comfortable and a confident driver. She answered all my questions big and small ensuring me there was no silly questions. I did my full 12 EDT lessons (Manual) with another instructor which I also loved but I ended up switching to automatic as that was the only car available for me to practice in. I ended up doing two lessons with Clodagh (Automatic) once in her car and then in mine and she had me up to speed. I passed my theory side of things with flying colours and just a few marks in my moving off (look behind the shoulder).I would 100% recommend Clodagh to my friends and any learner that would feel a bit nervous cause once you’re in the car with her you’re nerves will disappear. Thank you again Clodagh you’re a star 🌟

The NDS is of valuable resource for anyone whos looking to drive.

The patience, understanding and knowledge of information held by these instructors is next to none of their professionalism and ensuring you go into the test with confidence and understanding of what to expect. The instruction was greatly appreciated and I would recommend them to anyone.

He is very professional, very detail oriented and put me at ease from the very first moment behind the wheels. This had boosted my confidence and courage to take the dreaded test! He has excellent knowledge about cars, gives clear & constructive feedback and knows the test routes very well.I had practiced with dedication last 3 months the tips and tricks that he gave me and could clear the test with ease yesterday. I would definitely recommend Chris to my family and friends!Special thanks to Jackie to accommodate all my schedule request from NDS school and to provide with Chris as my instructor!

His instructions were simple and clear always and very patient enough with me.Again thanks a lot NDS Team
Kudos to my wonderful instructor Kamila who helped me to pass my driving test the very first time in Tallaght. Earlier I finished my EDT with different instructor. But had few pre driving lessons with Kamila, I should say she is extremely knowledgeable, calm, patient and provided me with lot of suggestions that helped me to be a better driver. Her classes were spot on in correcting my mistakes through which I learned a lot and gained more confidence to appear for the test.Also I took one class with Kevin right before the test and his way of teaching and tips helped me a lot. I just used all their inputs which helped me to clear the test the very first time.Thanks Kamila and Kevin, you guys are just awesome!! Highly recommend!!

Alan was brilliant when answering any of my questions and was very patient with me when correcting bad habits.

I had the pleasure of having Seweryn as my instructor at the Tallaght Driving Center, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. Seweryn went above and beyond to ensure that I not only gained the necessary knowledge but also built the confidence needed to pass my driving exam on the first attempt.Seweryn's teaching style is exceptional. He patiently guided me through every aspect of driving, from the basics to the more complex maneuvers, always taking the time to address any questions or concerns I had. His extensive knowledge of driving rules and regulations was evident, and he made the learning process both enjoyable and educational.What sets Seweryn apart is his dedication to his students. He tailored the lessons to my individual needs, providing constructive feedback and encouragement at every step. His positive and calm demeanor created a comfortable learning environment, making me feel at ease behind the wheel.Thanks to Seweryn's expert guidance, I not only passed my driving exam on the first try but also developed a strong foundation for safe and confident driving. I highly recommend Seweryn to anyone seeking a skilled and supportive driving instructor. Keep up the fantastic work, and thanks again for helping me achieve this milestone!

Passed my test today at Mulhuddart centre. Very challenging route but thanks to an in-depth Pretest with Krzys (Chris), I was able to sit the test feeling confident. Brilliant driving instructor.
I met my instructor David for the first time on the 23rd of August with very little experience & passed on the 27th of December 1st time!I would definitely recommend the National Driving School!

Took lessons with Jun Yang to learn driving for the first time and successfully pass the test. Scrupulous, pleasant and competent. This is the instructor to book lessons with if you want to pass.

Amazing 6 months gone since I change my career as a driving instructor at Ladybird Driving SchoolHuge thanks to Kevin Horgan at National Driving School who changed my life.Getting the information how to become a driver instructor, passing the stage 1 on my own, I put my details down online to Ladybird Driving School for more information. Kevin contact me back explaining all the procces that I need to go through in getting my ADI licence. Was very helpful, patient and reliable as he was helping me with the next stages during the weekend as I was working durring the week. He is the one that offer me lots of confidence to give up my 2 jobs that I was doing for the last 6 years-office administration durring the week and taxi driver at night time.This new career offer me a better quality of life, less working hours, being my own boss and lots of happiness.Once again , huge thanks to Kevin and i am very happy to meet a gentleman like him.😊

Passed my test this morning and passed first time! Had a lesson with Chris a week before my test, learnt more than I did with my instructor before hand. Felt very confident going into the test because of Chris. Made me feel very comfortable as a driver and highly doubt I wouldn’t have passed if I didn’t go to him before hand!

Fantastic school with some of the best instructors around. I did lessons with Julia and Darren and they were both excellent, patient, knowledgeable and professional at all times. I did a pretest with Kevin and it got rid of last minute nerves and gave me the final pointers to get across the finish line. Strongly recommended NDS for anyone learning.

If you want to pass your test, this is where you need to get lessons! I had completed over 12 lessons with two different driving schools and was losing hope of ever driving. I reached out to NDS and was lucky enough to get Joseph as my instructor, he is so calm, informative and reassuring which made a huge difference as I am quite an anxious driver! He made sure I understood everything - because of him I passed my test first time which I never thought would happen! Thank you Joseph 😇

Passed my driving test last week on the first attempt. Big thanks to Seweryn who gave me my EDT lessons. Seweryn was very professional throughout, I found his feed back very helpful and his ability spot and correct my many mistakes was excellent. I did a pretest with Seweryn a week before the test which was the difference between a pass and a fail as so much time between my last EDT lesson and my test. Again thanks for all your help Seweryn.

Big thank you to Clodagh! A wonderful and patient instructor. Her knowledge, resources, and bubbly personality are amazing! She took the stress and hassle out of the lessons and gave me the skills and ability to pass my driving test on the first try. A wonderful instructor for both first time drivers and experienced drivers from foreign countries. I can’t recommend her and the National Driving School more!

Couldn’t recommend National Driving School and Chris highly enough! I was very nervous never having even attempted to drive a car, but Chris was a brilliant instructor and helped me not only pass my tests on the first go with nearly a clean sheet but also feel safe driving!

I actually enjoyed the process! I’ve already recommended them to friends looking for a new instructor! Thanks again!

Instructor Kevin Veeren is the best! Very professional, on-point instructions and maintained a calm demeanor.I failed twice with 2 other instructors as they never touched base on some important points (And in the test, they trick you to fail tbh and we need to counter them. It’s on the news if u didn’t know abt the passing rates…).But Kevin covered every little things and removed all confusions with constructive feedback. No room for errors!I defo recommend him! Thank you! 🙌
15:54 11 Dec 23
Did pre- test lessons with Steve and passed with only 1 grade 2 mark. Brought me on all possible tallaght routes and made me very familiar with them. Couldn’t recommend him enough. Wouldn’t have passed without him!

Two days ago I passed a driving test in Tallaght at first attempt. I had 3 pre-tests and a mock test with Elaine who is a star. She spots your every move without making a big deal out of it so you won't be intimidated while having lessons. She isn't my original instructor, but I'm glad I had to have pre-tests with her. Elaine is highly professional and will make sure you get ready of almost all your bad habits after the first hour. She will both get along with you and keep it professional so you won't forget that you're in the process of learning without making you nervous. She'll make sure to correct as much bad behavior as possible so when you are doing your practical test, even if you're nervous, you'll get as few marks as you could.

Today I’ve passed my first ever driving exam in TALLAGHT with my amazing instructor Łukasz! He is the most knowledgeable person I’ve ever met. He showed me that even a person with driving anxiety can pass the exam and feel confident behind the wheel. He is very patient and very helpful, answering even the most basic questions I had. Couldn’t recommend him enough! Thank you Łukasz!

I did a few lessons with Elaine and she was so helpful. I got my test date with short notice and Elaine made time for me to do a few lessons before it. If I hadn’t had her help I wouldn’t have passed first time. She was very patient and explained everything so I had no questions going into the test. She is a great instructor and I’m delighted to have passed my test. 10 stars 🤩

I Passed my driving test today on my first attempt, all credit goes to my instructor Seweryn From National Driving School. He helped throughout this process, he helped me with my theory test, how to apply my Reduced EDT (as i have my international license with me), My pretest lessons, Even Seweryn choses two routes today for my pre test session and told me one of this route will be selected as your final driving test and guess what? the first one was my driving test route. for all the Irish and non Irish residents(mainly) I would recommend him as we can clearly understand the basic rules and he will force you to repeatedly do the maneuver's to make you perfect for the final test.
