How the logbook works
When you start your first EDT lesson, you will be given an official logbook by your ADI to record the details of your training and progress, as well as necessary preparation for your next lessons. You can familiarise yourself with the format by viewing a sample logbook(PDF).
When you complete an EDT lesson, your ADI will stamp the relevant section of your logbook and record some feedback on how well or whether you met the lesson objectives. To meet the lesson objectives you must prepare properly, practice with a Sponsor and you may need to take additional instruction.
An ADI can only sign the lessons they have given, so be sure to get your logbook updated by your ADI after each lesson. If you change ADIs, your new ADI will not be able to fill out your logbook for lessons you have already taken.
The logbook also provides space for both you and your Sponsor to assess your performance in your EDT lessons. This evaluation will help you understand what you need to practice to become a safer driver and how best to prepare for your next lesson.
Bring your logbook to each EDT lesson
If your logbook gets lost or damaged, you should make a report with the Gardai and you will then need to obtain a duplicate logbook from your ADI. This may involve a waiting period, so it is important that you keep your logbook secure.
