The Car that you do the Pre-Test in should be the same as the car you plan to sit your Driving Test in. The most important thing is to make sure that it is a car that you are familiar with and comfortable in. DO NOT sit your test in a car that you hire that morning that you have driven before. There are all sorts of little differences between cars, from design differences like the side of the steering column that the indicators are on, or where reverse is on the the gear stick, right down down to ‘acquired’ differences such as the biting point of the clutch and the current strength of the brakes. Even very experienced driver can do silly things like hopping the car if they aren’t used to the clutch, or, my personal favourite, turning on the window wipers instead of indicating.
If you have your own car that you have been practising in, or you have been using your sponsors car, use that in both your pre-test and your test. If you have clocked up your 12 hours EDT in one of our cars, hire that as part of one of our pre-test packages (below) and sit your Test in that.
We will help you get through the big day. We will pick up, give you a pre-test and you can even use our car if you feel more comfortable in it.
We offer a 1 Hour Pre-Test for €125 and if you want to make double sure we offer a 2 hour session for €150.
We will go with you to your test, and…our favourite bit…we will congratulate you when you pass!
