Your EDT LESSON Programme with DWYER'S DRIVING SCHOOL
The EDT Programme was introduced by the Road Safety Authority in Ireland, to ensure that all new drivers receive a minimum standard of tuition, essentially it is undertaking a minimum number of 12 driving lessons with a registered and approved driving instructor or ADI.
These 12 driving lessons (hours) are a minimum a new driver must take, however they do not cover the complete teaching syllabus without practice lessons in between which is recommended, as it may not always be possible to complete a lesson within a one hour session. The EDT programme is mandatory for all new drivers and all driving test attendees must produce a completed signed and stamped log book, to their driving tester, prior to the practial driving test being conducted, signed by an approved driving instructor, (ADI)
Shortened EDT Programme
There is an one exception to the above rule, and its for "fully licensed foreign drivers" a reduced or shorter EDT programme was introduced in Jan 2019 for fully licensed foreign drivers which Ireland does not have an driving licence exchange agreement and are required to sit a driving test. Such drivers may seek an exemption from the six month rule and having to fully undertake all 12 EDT lessons, This exemption is for the undertaking 1,2,3,4,8, respectively.
