Driving Lessons

Driving lessons can be daunting for new students, which is why it’s important to make sure you select a good instructor for you. There are a few things you should consider before you start your driving lessons.

Do you want to learn in a manual or automatic vehicle? While a manual allows you to drive an automatic, passing your test in an automatic vehicle will restrict you to just automatic cars. All new drivers must take a 12-week EDT (Essential Driver Training) course before they can take their test. The course must be completed with an RSA approved instructor.

After you have used My Business Finder to discover reputable local driving instructors close to you, now you can look at which one best suits your individual needs. You can also check their experience and pass rates, as higher pass rates are usually an indication of a good instructor. There are also steps you can take to prepare for your EDT course, such as helpful reading material. You can ask your chosen instructor for advice and tips, as well as guidance on performing any additional driving with a family member or close friend who is an experienced driver.

Once you have narrowed down your potential choices it is also a good idea to look at their websites to see what special offers they are running for students. Many give discounts or special deals for learners who will commit to a minimum number of lessons with their driving school.

Driving School

Driving school selection should take into account many factors. The instructors experience and pass rate. Their prices and availability. Whether they cover the area you live. Do they have the proper accreditation to offer you the lessons you need to pass your test? Many people are excited about starting to learn to drive, but rushing into making a bad decision can delay passing your test.

When selecting a driving school you must make sure it is approved to teach you the EDT (Essential Driver Training) course. The EDT is a 12-week course that focuses on all of the basics you need to become a safe and responsible driver. It covers basic car control and safety checks, as well as positioning and changing direction.

A good driving school will also teach you about anticipation and reaction to your surroundings. This is particularly relevant when driving in heavy traffic, as the potential dangers increase in number. A good instructor will have plenty of patience and help you to remain calm while driving. The final stages of the EDT lessons will focus on speed management and night driving.

If you have your own car then it is worth discussing with your instructor whether you use this for your lessons. Some ADIs (Approved Driving Instructors) will prefer you to use a car with dual controls for the first few lessons, but it can definitely be beneficial to take some of your lessons in a car you’re familiar with and intend to drive after passing your test.

Educational Psychologists

Educational psychologists in Dublin often work with a broad age range of students with a diverse set of needs. Children, adolescents and adults who have special and diverse needs can benefit from an assessment to help them and educators identify specific areas that need attention. They are applied psychologists who work closely with teachers and parents involved in the development of any child or adolescent with special needs within the educational system.

My Business Finder can help you find a trusted and experienced educational psychologist, local to you, who is capable of dealing with learning difficulties, assessments and even offer support and advice for teachers working with students with special needs. Special learning difficulties can include dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder), and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders). Some educational psychologists can also help students with issues relating to social skills, anxiety, and depression.

A psychological assessment can prove invaluable for parents, carers and educators when formulating the best way to move forward with a student. They often include recommendations specific to the patient aimed at helping both parents and teachers, and can often be used to assess a student’s eligibility for extra help, and ensure appropriate learning opportunities are provided for every student.

Many educational psychologists can also provide training courses specifically designed to help teachers manage individual students with specific needs, such as students with ADHD or dyslexia, and provide strategies for more effective classroom management in general.
