Getting StartedWhen you learn with Harris Driving School you will get your own personal lesson plan.
It takes into account any driving experience you may already have, as well as your own style of learning and level of confidence.
Apply for your Theory Test
In order to get a ‘Learner permit’ you must first apply for and pass the Driver Theory Test for the relevant category of vehicle.
It is a computerised test in which you will need to correctly answer 35 out of 40 questions asked. If successful you will be given a certificate.
(Note: A new theory test was introduced on October 24th 2011. A new version of the study material - 5th edition - is required.)
Apply for your Learner Permit
You will need this permit in order to learn to drive and to apply for a driving test.
From the 25th October 2013 applications cannot be made to your local Motor Taxation Office. Instead from October 29th 2013 applications must be made to the new National Driver License Service (NDLS). Applying for your first learner permit will require a visit to an NDLS centre.
To apply you will need:
At the NDLS centre a digital photo and signature will be taken for use on your Learner permit.
For further information and location of centres check the NDLS website at: ndls.ie
Commence Driving Lessons
This is where Harris Driving School can help you.
You will be given a structured course of lessons designed to provide you with the key skills you need to know to become a skilled, confident and safe driver for life. You will be taught at a pace that suits you.
The RSA's 'Essential Driver Training' (EDT) course of structured learning commenced on April 4th 2011. From this date it is mandatory for learners applying for their first learner permit, to complete the EDT lessons.
EDT consists of 12 one-hour lessons delivered by an authorised driving instructor (ADI). You will need to get supervised practice outside of the EDT lessons, with a 'Sponsor' (an experienced, qualified driver).
Both lessons and practice are recorded in your RSA EDT 'Logbook' (provided by your driving instructor). All lessons must be completed and certified, by your instructor, before you can take your driving test.
" Choosing Harris Driving School will put you well on the road to passing your Driving Test. You can be confident we will go that extra mile towards your success. "
We will act as 'sponsor' for your practise should you require.Click here for full details on the RSA's ‘Essential Driver Training’
