Rathgar Driving Test Centre

The RSA would like to advise customers that the driving test centre at 75 Orwell Road, Rathgar, Dublin 6, is due to close on 15th January 2016.  The Office of Public Works who leases the centre on behalf of the Road Safety Authority has been given notice to quit due to the recent sale of the property. 

A temporary alternative test centre has been established to operate from the Rochestown Lodge Hotel & Spa, Rochestown Avenue, Dun Laoghaire.  We hope to be able to confirm the permanent location of the test centre for the South Dublin region during the coming weeks.

The RSA will work to schedule customers who are waiting for a driving test in the Rathgar Driving Test Centre insofar as possible until the closure date.  It will not be guaranteed for customers applying after the 26th November that their test will be scheduled in Rathgar test centre.

Other alternative test centres in the Dublin area are:

  • Tallaght Driving Test Centre, Premier Business Park, 52 Broomhill Road, Tallaght
  • Finglas Driving Test Centre, Jamestown Business Park, Jamestown Road, Finglas
  • Raheny Driving Test Centre, 4 All Saints Park, Raheny, Dublin 5.

We will be updating this notice with any developments and we will be contacting affected customers in the coming weeks who have applied for their test at Rathgar centre to inform them as to how this will affect them.

Please contact our Customer Care Centre on 1890 40 60 40 or email drivingtest@rsa.ie if you have any queries.

The RSA apologises for any inconvenience caused.
