The government has decided that Essential Driver Training (EDT) sessions will recommence for those essential workers who have not completed EDT from 10 May. The RSA will also reopen its EDT Online Portal, on 10 May, to allow Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) to upload EDT sessions completed by essential workers.

Where to access the essential worker declaration form

The form can be downloaded directly from this declaration form link or from our webpage: In the event a student turns up without having completed the form, you may wish to have some hard copies available. These can be filled out manually in advance of their training.

Who to send the form to

Once fully completed, students should email the form to their ADI or alternatively they can print out the completed form and hand it to you in person. You should keep a record of this as the RSA will be contacting ADIs to request completed declaration forms from a random sample of customers.
