Essential Driver Training (EDT) is a mandatory training course that teaches fundamental driving skills to learner car drivers. You are required now by law to sit the mandatory 12 EDT driving lessons.
Yes. As a learner driver, you must complete all 12 EDT sessions before you can sit a driving test.
You can apply online for a driving test before your 12 EDT sessions are completed. However, you cannot be scheduled for your driving test until your ADI confirms that you have completed all 12 sessions and these have been uploaded to the system.

You must bring your EDT logbook to each driving lesson. It’s an important document which you must keep safe.
Your ADI will sign off and stamp the Logbook after each designated lesson has been completed. In the certificate pages your instructor can only record their own records of their training.
The EDT logbook records a record of your training and comments and tips and advice are entered into the Logbook at the relevant place.
