Value of Driver Training

Getting an Essental Driver Training (EDT) is crucial since this will give you the right knowledge on how to drive safely and securely. As reported by the Graduated Driver Licensing of RSA, it's needed that newbies in training will learn the fundamentals of driving skills so EDT is now included in their scheme. This training is now required mainly because new drivers will be able to acquire the knowledge and skills that they need to drive safely in the road.

For you to be a responsible driver,you need to get intensive training with lots of practice. Part of the learning process is the completion of EDT.

Is it needed to take the EDT lessons?

In an effort to help improve the skills, knowledge, and behavior of new drivers the RSA introduced precautionary procedures.One of these many measures they implemented is the EDT. The worst cases of road accidents often involved young and also inexperienced drivers that's the reason why they made this training compulsory to all new drivers.

Completing all EDT lessons is already a requirement for your full driving test if your first B category (Car) learner permit was issued on or after April 4, 2011.

Learner drivers who took the EDT  have good chances of passing the driving test. Passing the driving test is a lot easier for them they had time to improve their driving knowledge and skills. Knowing that, consider taking the training even if you are not required to complete it. 

What are the goal of EDT?

There are critical and practical driving skills that you need to master before you become an authorised driver. The EDT has a total of Twelve driving lessons, all of which will assist you to gain the skills of a good driver.Every lesson will last an hour, therefore it will not take much of your time and you can still go to your other appointments.

The Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) are the ones who facilitate the lessons, and they used a specially issued logbook to monitor your performance.

You also have to practice driving outside of lessons that's why you should also have a Sponsor, anyone who is an experienced driver who will guide you in your practice driving and will also track down your progress in your logbook.
