EDT stands for Essential Driving Training. This essential driving training has been mandatory for all learner drivers since April 2011. The structured programme provides each student with the fundamental skills required to drive safely. Each student is expected to complete 12 hours with an RSA approved driving instructor. Like any skill, practice makes perfect! You will need to support your lessons with independent driving. Learner drivers should do as much driving as possible to ensure they feel safe and comfortable behind the wheel.
