EDT Lesson 8 (Driving Safely Through Traffic)

When you will start your lesson 8 (8th EDT) with your Approved Driver Instructor (ADI), you should already have achieved lessons 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th & 7th EDTs.

During 8th EDT you should be able to drive in busy road traffic, to interact with other road users & to develop:

  • Defensive driving skill:
  • Recognise risks to the safety of others.
  • & co-operate with other road users.

The objective of the 8th EDT are:

  • Acting & demonstrating appropriately & decisively while driving in traffic.
  • Describing & reacting to actual & potential risks to other roads users & manage them in good time.

If you are struggling with lesson 8 (EDT), maybe more practice with an ADI, your sponsor, or both would be advisable as lesson 8 is very challenging (the RSA are recommending 3 hours tuition between each EDT).
