Anyone applying for their first learner permit for a car from the 4th April 2011 must complete Essential Driver Training (EDT) with an RSA registered Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) before sitting their test.
EDT involves successfully completing 12 hours of driver training over a six-month period with an ADI as well as supervised practice with your sponsor.
Learner drivers are among the most vulnerable people on the road. EDT gives you a framework for your learning, which provides you with the experience, confidence and know-how to make the road a safer place for all of us.
