Car rental for driving tests:
The normal price for using our car for your driving test is €120. This includes at least one hour of a driving lesson just before your test. For many people this is essential to calm the nerves and get those last minute tips and advice. You have use of the car, with insurance for the purpose of your test. It will also include a test debrief to explain your marks and a lift home if required and reasonable.
Discounts for tests: We will reduce the cost of car rental for the test to €100 if: you have previously done your EDT lessons with us, take a bundle of at least six hours pretest lessons with us before the day of your test or if you were unsuccessful in a previous attempt where you had taken at least five hours of pretest lessons with us.
Emergency Pretest Lessons:
There may be a possibility of getting a pretest lesson at short notice. The availability of these lessons is not guaranteed. It may require the driving instructor to work outside of their normal hours or to ask another learner to postpone their driving lesson. For these reasons a higher rate of 50 euro per hour or 75 euro for 1.5 hours will apply. Typically this will mean the driving instructor is finishing the lesson later than 9 pm on a weekday and later than 4 pm on a Saturday or Sunday. If another learner is being moved they may be compensated by a longer lesson in the future.
