Over the years we have identified 3 different type of pupil and how they approach their driving test.
The organised pupil is the pupil who methodically goes about the planning and preparation of their test. They make contact usually 4-6 weeks prior to sitting their test. With no stress involved they take the test seriously and do what we advise in relation to making changes to their driving.
At this stage we cover the following:
This type of preparation is how they go about all exams they've sat throughout their lives and reflects on the type of person they are.
They are prepared to do and spend however much it takes to pass the test and understand that it costs €85 to reapply plus 2 penalty points if they are caught driving unaccompanied.
The uncommitted pupil has the best of intentions but with work and travel higher in their mind as priorities they just can't seem to find the time to put the effort in to get the work covered and information needed to comfortably pass the test. They usually make contact 1-2 weeks before the test and generally end up failing, have to spend €85 on a new application and have the continued threat of penalty points for driving unaccompanied
The last minute pupil usually rings up 2 hours before the test or a day before the test pleading with us to give them the car.
The excuses can vary but here are a few:
It's clear this type of pupil has not taken the driving test seriously or finds ways to blame circumstances out their control rather than admit the fault as their own
At the RSA Driving School we don't care what type you fall under. We are here to help you in whatever way we can, with whatever time you give us to get you to pass the test.
You need to understand that get back from the test what you are willing to put in!
Our approach is revolutionary and our results speak for themselves. We meticulously prepare each and every pupil where we have been given enough time to work with them. For those that can not commit to the lessons or leave things to the last minute, we help to give them the best possible chance to pass with emergency remedial lessons focusing on fixing the worst of their bad habits.
