Note; EDT is only required if your first learner permit was issued after 4 April 2011.

Essential Driver Training EDT, is a 12 Lesson training course that teaches fundamental driving skills to learner permit holders. You must complete 12 EDT driving lessons before you sit a driving test. It is also recommended that you discuss with your driving instructor about your progression and if you need additional lessons before taking your test.

EDT – Course

EDT is a course of 12 one-hour lessons with an ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) designed to cover certain critical driving skills and improve your practical driving skills.

As each lesson is completed your ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) will record your progress in a specially issued logbook.


You may also have a sponsor, a sponsor is an experienced driver possibly a family member who can supervise your driving outside of lessons, and can also log your progress in your logbook.

What comes next

After you finish your Essential Driver Training course, you may still need additional lessons with your driving instructor to improve and refine your skills. You should also practice with your sponsor as much as possible, this is a great way to refine your skills and technique in preparation of your test.

On your test day, you should bring your completed logbook, you may be required to show it to the examiner.

EDT Costs/Prices

As there is no set charge for EDT lessons, each Driving Instructor sets their own fees. Many ADI provide discounts on bulk lessons and for upfront payment for all lessons, so don’t be afraid to ask.

Price is not the only thing to consider. Different driving instructors provide a different learning experience, while some provide a strict no nonsense approach others provide a more friendly relaxed environment. Recommendations and reviews are also a great way to choose, but the choice is yours.

The EDT logbook has a cost €4 witch you can buy from your ADI.

Note; EDT can only be delivered by an RSA approved driving instructor ADI.
