Covid 19 Update

We are delighted to be able to confirm Monday June 29th as our reopening date for driving lessons. We will be monitoring the situation closely ensuring all hygiene protocols are followed to ensure the safety of all our staff and clients.

During the break we have received hundreds of enquiries about our reopening date and the resumption of driving lessons from both new and current learner drivers.

We will be taking bookings from June 22nd. Due to the huge backlog since mid-March, 16 weeks ago, we will be STRICTLY PRIORITISING driving lessons as follows:

  1. Current clients who have been given a test date (we will need confirmation of the test date from the RSA).
  2. Current clients who have already started their 12 EDT driving lessons, those clients that are nearer completion of their EDT will get preference.
  3. New clients who want to avail of our 3 day intensive courses to complete their 12 EDT lessons https://www.leinsterdrivingcampus.ie/driving-lesson/car/intensive/
  4. New clients booking 2 hour driving lessons as part of their EDT. We will NOT be taking 1-hour driving lessons until after August 10th.

All non-EDT lessons (Under 17 and Pre- EDT) will be lower priority and we will not be taking any bookings for these courses for the remainder of this year 2020. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but we are hopeful you will understand the current situation we face. For those who have vouchers and are falling into this non-EDT category, do not worry we will honour your vouchers.
