For customers who wish for greater convenience, EDI offers Gold Driving Course, which offers a fast-track training program, overseen by a dedicated client-liaison manager.

The representative will personally guide you during each step of driving license training and will ensure that the course is conducted in the fastest and most efficient manner. 

Our Gold driving course allows you the flexibility of taking the course as per your schedule. From theory lectures, practical training to tests, everything is scheduled swiftly as per your preference and you do not have to follow the basic waiting period.

We offer the Gold courses for LMV (car), for People of Determination, Motorcycle, Heavy Truck, and Light Forklift training.

We use a combination of classroom training,  vehicle simulators, controlled area driving, and open road driving as a part of the training process.

Our methodology maximizes the student's chances of passing the RTA road test by a detailed process that reinforces and tests their skills periodically and applies corrective measures at the earliest stage.
