Tips on passing your Driving test in Dublin

The majority of test candidates who fail do so because of a lack of planning and Preparation.


1.Apply at the Correct time

Everyone should pass their driving test the first time. With the correct lessons from easyDrive you'll understand when you're ready and won't apply beforhand.

2. My driving standard

Driving to a high standard is not enough to ensure test success.

Being able to drive is only 50% ready. You must have a good ability to react from experience to whats happening around you, and to act accordingly to others and others missed reactions.

If your struggling with controlling any part of the car Physically then your'e far from test standard!

The skill of Physically driving a car doesn't feature very highly in the driving test results.Only 'moving away under control' and 'lack of steering control' find their way into the top ten. Many People try combating the test with an automatic car and still end up with same results!If your are having even slight difficulty with clutch, steering control, Brakes, then your'e not ready. If you have difficulty in these areas, please don't put in for your test until you feel totally confident in your ability. When you have to do an uphill start, if you are scared that you may roll back and feeling nervous about it, then trust me, you are not ready for your test.
So, ask yourself (and your instructor) if your physical driving ability is up to test standard. If it isn't, carry on working on it until it is.
Physicaly Driving a car is the easiest bit to master, the hardest part is the thinking behind it. That comes with experience. Good judgement can only happen once you master the car.


3. Get Prepared

Nerves can play such a large part on how you are able to perform on the day. So many people say after their test: 'but I never do that normally!' So that means that your driving isn't good under presure and your'e not fully prepared. Driving should be automatic under and condition and simply put You're not prepared enough!

That means your driving standards must be far superior than driving test standard to be confident under pressure

No good instructor will let a pupil take their test before they are ready, as it's very demoralising to fail your test.

4. Advice

If you follow your instuctors advice from your very first driving lesson you'll go to test feeling confident in your ability, then you will have the best chance possible of passing your test on the first time. From our experience the people that do take our advice from the start always pass first time with minimum cost!

Thats 99% of you!

5.Don't waste your money

EDT Lessons Dublin

If you are a first time learner driver with own your own car the we will show you the best way for you to plan each of the 12 edt lessons so it saves you money overall.

In sinmple terms, your first driving lesson is really about being able to move off and stop safely! If feel that you can stop safely after you have completed your first edt lesson in with your RSA adi approved driving instructor, Then practise moving off and stopping until you are an untill you have reached a highe standard! Your sponsor driver will help you achieve the final outcomes of the lesson.

Did you Know that you cannot sit a driving test until 6 months from the date of issue of your learner permit? This is to allow you sufficient Driving practice time so that you are able to take a driving test and not be dissapointed!

If you take your edt lessons to close together then you will end up taking double the lessons than you actually needed.

Did you know the (RSA) Road Safety Authority recommended that you complete 3-5 hours of practice between each EDT lessons?

We recomend that you be 100% sure of each module before you take your next lesson. Some people maybe great after 3-5 hours and others may take longer. People learn at different rates and some people may need extra help from an adi instructor. To take lessons in your own car, please make sure car is legal and safe and your tyres are legal.

So what if you are a first time learner driver and don't own your own car?

We recommended that you take one EDT lesson in city every two or three weeks or when you are ready. In between each EDT lesson take as many hours driving practise with your adi driving instructor. You need to be an expert at the module you're covering with your adi approved driving instructor to be able to pass a driving test.

Overall you will need the legally required 6 months of driving practice to be happy on driving test day.
