U17 First Drive / pre - essential driver training (edt)

Each student learns at their own pace and with our Under 17 First Drive program, they can learn in a way, which is not pressured and is suited to them specifically. Each private lesson is finished with a detailed record of what has been covered in preparation for further lessons.


During your PRE EDT lessons we'll familiarise you with your vehicles primary controls  i.e. foot controls and hand controls; your secondary controls i.e. windscreen wipers and lights; along with moving off and stopping safely.So book a lesson today and make a head start on your EDT!!


In the R.S.A. guidelines for Essential Driver Training (EDT), it is recommended that the learner driver takes three hours of lessons in preparation before starting your EDT lesson 1. These Under 17 driving lessons will have you perfectly prepared to commence your EDT once you turn 17 and get your Learner Permit.
