How to Sign up for My Essential Driver Training (EDT)
To view your essential driver training records online, simply set up an account for "My EDT".
All you need to fill in is your full name, date of birth and driver number, thereafter you can view your EDT online, for example what lessons you've completed, and when they were uploaded and what EDT lessons you have left to do. You can also print off any or all of your driving lessons.
Remember: You can apply for your driving test online before you have your 12 lessons completed, however you cannot be scheduled for your driving test until the RSA have
received confirmation from your ADI Instructor that you have the 12 EDT lessons completed.
You should talk to your AB Driving School Instructor about your progress and be guided by them. Everyone is different and If you need more lessons, your instructor will let you know. If you're ready for your driving test, you can apply online.
The Essential Driver Training Course
The essential driver training course is made up of 12 one-hour lessons which you must complete before taking your driving test. Please remember that training completed with an individual who does not currently hold RSA approval cannot count as part of your EDT and will need to be repeated with an RSA EDT approved Instructor. AB Driving School is RSA ADI Approved Driving School and will offer advice on how to best prepare for the course of EDT lessons before starting the course. We also assist and advise in all aspects of administration and dealings with the RSA
At your first EDT lesson, and each lesson thereafter, your ADI will check your learner permit, and if you are using your own car, will check to make sure your vehicle insurance, motor tax, NCT and the road worthiness of the vehicle are all in order.
Your AB Driving School ADI will issue a logbook with your name, address, date of birth and learner permit driver number. You should bring this logbook to each lesson and make sure all the appropriate sections are filled out after each lesson.
Each of the EDT Sessions Has Objectives.
You should prepare for each lesson using the EDT Course Syllabus, these 12 sessions, not necessarily lessons are are titled:

How Essential Driver Training Works... from the RSA
In this video, the Essential Driver Training programme, known as EDT, is covered in more detail. The ultimate aim of EDT is to keep young drivers safe on Irish roads by working with them to become competent, confident and skilled drivers.
The video outlines the different components of EDT, including the role of the ADI and how to find one, as well as how to choose a sponsor, the person chosen
by you to support you as you learn to drive.
The video also shows what happens in your first EDT lesson as well as the preparation required beforehand. It will outline the purpose of the logbook and how it is used, what each of the 12 lessons will cover and how the learner driver uses self analysis to identify what needs to be practiced with their sponsor between lessons.
Should you find it difficult to get a sponsor, then we
can act as your sponsor in-between EDT lessons!!!
