Essential Driver Training: What is ‘EDT’

The Essential Driver Training (EDT) module is a mandatory minimum 12 hour course which everyone who is learning to drive must complete with an approved driving instructor (ADI).

It is important to note that this is a minimum requirement and that in many instances it is not always sufficient in order to become a safe, competent driver.  I believe that proper driver training involves ensuring that road knowledge and driving skills go beyond just having the means to pass your driving test and driver theory exam.
