Do I have to do 12 driving lessons?

I've been driving for the past two months and I have my licence for five. Will I have to do 12 lessons before I do my driving test or is this for new drivers?

Hi Sean,

The simple answer is no. According to the Road Safety Authority (RSA): "Any person getting their first learner permit with a start date on or after 4th April 2011 must complete a minimum 12 hours of Essential Driver Training".

However, there's no harm in a little extra training!

Good luck with getting your full licence.
