EDT (Essential Driver Training) is a mandatory training course that was introduced by the RSA to promote road safety among learner drivers. If your first Category B learner permit was issued on or after 4th April 2011, you must complete 12 mandatory EDT lessons in order to take your driving test.
Each lesson is one hour long and must be administered by a registered ADI. Your ADI will issue you a logbook, which will be stamped and filled out after each lesson with practice tips for your next lesson. You must produce your learner permit before each lesson.
You should read and be aware of what each lesson consists of to benefit the most from the course. Note that lessons 1 through 8 must be taken in sequence, but lessons 9 through 12 can be taken in any order.
We recommend that you practise in between each lesson in order to master each step. The EDT course is best spread out over a six month period to give yourself time to develop the skills you will need, whilst working with your instructor to become a confident, safe driver.
