How to Sign up for My 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 My EDT, i.e. 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 we receive the 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 him /her. 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 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 and will offer advice on how to best prepare for the course of EDT lessons before starting the course. 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 insurance, motor tax, NCT and the road worthiness of the vehicle are all in order.

Your AB Driving School ADI will give you 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.
