Dun Laoghaire Driving Test Centre
The RSA would like to advise customers that the Driving Test Centre at Rochestown Lodge Hotel & Spa, Dun Laoghaire, will be closing with effect from 28th May 2016. This centre was temporarily opened in January of this year following the closure of Rathgar Driving test Centre. Another centre in Churchtown was opened also in January and will remain operational for the next few months.
We are unable to accept any further applications for the Dun Laoghaire centre and we are contacting candidates who have an application currently in Dun Laoghaire to advise them of the closure. The RSA will do all it can to ensure that customers who have a current application in Dun Laoghaire will be accommodated with a test appointment there insofar as possible. However we may have to offer test appointments to some customers in an alternative test centre of the customer’s choosing.
Other test centres in the Dublin area are:
Churchtown Driving Test Centre, Landscape House, Landscape Road, Churchtown;
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.
Customers can contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 1890 40 60 40 if they have any query.
The RSA apologises for any inconvenience caused.
