12 EDT Lessons

This is made up of 12 EDT Lessons each lasting 1 hour and Licensed to Drive ensures you complete each one efficiently and safely, ensuring that you have the skills required to move on to the next one. Details of the EDT Lessons are in the Learner Driver Information Booklet or on the RSA website rsa.ie.

Learning to drive can be expensive and at Licensed to Drive we advise all learners to get in as much practice as possible between lessons with your sponsor i.e., your parents or brother or sister. You sponsor must hold a full Driving Licence for a minimum of two years and remember you must have an L plate to the front and rear of the vehicle you are driving in.

Important:

  • All learners must be insured on the vehicle they are learning to drive in.
  • As of the 8th December, new penalty points for Learner drivers have been introduced (full details at rsa.ie).
  • All newly qualified drivers must display their “N” (Novice) plate, again to front and rear of vehicle for a minimum of two years.

The more practice and experience a person has, the better driver they become, this is why the 12 Hour EDT Lessons Plan is recommended for those people who have some experience and are familiarised with the vehicle and the road before starting the lessons and applying for the test as this will give them more chances to pass it.
