Our Driving Lessons / Instructors

We provide driving classes with fully insured Approved Driving Instructors (A.D.I.'s) for our clients. They are fully registered with the Road Safety Authority of Ireland. They are friendly and reliable and will do their level best not to let you down.

Driving Instruction is available from either a Male Driving Instructor or a Female Driving Instructor. We have been serving the people of Cork since 2001 on a patient, friendly and reliable basis with very competitive/affordable prices.

We offer cheap, but high-value and high-quality EDT (Essential Driver Training) and Pre-test Driving lessons / Tuition in our fully insured and Dual-Controlled AUTOMATIC car.

We also teach people to drive in their own MANUAL or AUTOMATIC cars, (under the client's insurance). We provide driving instruction for able-bodied and people with mobility issues. People with hearing difficulties are also catered for.

We like to teach from the basics in our driving classes, explaining what to do to drive, why these things are done and how/when to do these things correctly - with a laugh or two along the way too!.

Driving Test results show very high pass rates for our driving school clients. Since 2001 we have been preparing people for their driving test. We now have specialist driving instructors dedicated to achieving high pass rates for our clients in their driving tests in Wilton, Cork.

See our Driving Test Advice page for useful driving tips and a list of typical driving test questions/answers.

We wish all our clients success and that they drive safely for life.

Essential Driver Training - E.D.T.

Since April 4th, 2011 anyone learning to drive in Ireland who obtains a first learner permit has to complete a set of six (6) or Twelve (12) Essential Driver Training (E.D.T.) lessons with a Road Safety Authority (R.S.A.) Approved Driving Instructor, (A.D.I.)

This is part of the Irish Government's push to improve road safety for all road users in Ireland. The Road Safety Authority currently oversees this E.D.T. program as part of its Learner Driving Training (L.D.T.) program.

This L.D.T. programme is in turn part of a wider Road Safety Authority strategy called the Graduated Driver Licensing (G.D.L.) programme.

The A.D.I. you choose for these compulsory driving lessons will issue you with the appropriate Log Book to complete the course. This is the Learner Drivers logbook and should be kept by the Learner Driver between driving lessons.

(See the video below on the importance of the E.D.T. Logbook). The role of the A.D.I. is to provide "timely advice and guidance" to the Learner Driver in their learning to drive efforts.

Of course, your driving instructor will always be with you through the course of your driving lessons. However, it is expected that you will do 3 hours of practice at driving before your first EDT driving lesson and in between each of your 12 EDT lessons.

The person you practice with is called your Sponsor. They play a very important part in the learning-to-drive process these days.

After each of your driving lessons your A.D.I. will fill up your logbook with you, sign and stamp it. You are strongly advised to complete your self-analysis section of the logbook after each driving lesson also. Your Sponsor. can also write notes in a section for the A.D.I. to see.

Thus, between your A.D.I., yourself, and after sufficient practice hours too with ones Sponsor. a good driver should hopefully emerge, able enough to drive competently.
