Legal Requirement for Learner Drivers

Essential Driver Training (EDT)

With effect from April 2011, all new learner drivers must complete Essential Driver Training (EDT) with an approved driving instructor. All new learner drivers must complete 12  lessons before applying for their test. It is also a requirement that you complete a log book which must be signed off after each lesson by an ADI (Approved Driving Instructor).

It is recommended that the 12 lessons are spread out over 6 months from the issue of your learner permit. You should also have additional lessons in between with an ADI and also get practice with the help of a sponsor (a fully licensed driver).
