Driving test waiting list

If you are already on the driving test waiting list, please do not log in to MyRoadSafety to check for availability. Appointment slots are limited to those who have been invited to book a driving test and we will contact you directly when appointments become available.

 

If you have received an invitation to book a test, need to cancel a test, or wish to join the waiting list, please go ahead and sign in to MyRoadSafety now. For anyone else, we kindly ask you to visit another time when our portal is not so busy. Thank you for your patience at this time 

 

We can only offer test appointments to essential workers

If you are an essential worker and haven’t already received a test appointment but need one urgently please complete this online form. We will contact you when appointments become available.

If you are not an essential worker and have an upcoming appointment scheduled, please cancel your test. Otherwise, it won’t go ahead and the slot will be lost. Don’t worry, you won’t lose your fee. It will be saved as a service credit for you to book another test in the future.

Prosecutions

Here you will find details of prosecutions by the Road Safety Authority in respect of breaches of Drivers Hours, Tachograph & Operator Licensing legislation. A number of prosecution cases may be under appeal and the status of these cases may change.

Note. Publication of Convictions: In circumstances where a person or operator is convicted of a road transport related offence, details of the conviction (including name and penalty applied) will be published on the RSA website at www.rsa.ie

The RSA is responsible for enforcing EU and national transport legislation on tachographs, EU driver hour rules, Road transport working time directive and the licensing of road haulage and passenger operators to engage in hire and reward operations. Since 2009 the RSA have initiated prosecutions against drivers and operators in respect of breaches of this legislation and since then there has been a significant year on year increase in the number of prosecution cases completed.

We have now introduced a search facility whereby you can now browse our enforcement prosecution data in several different ways


Yearly totals


2021 - 0
2020 - 71
2019 - 74
2018 - 92
2017 - 88


The number of cases completed for the current year are updated periodically.  There is a natural time lapse from an offence being committed, prosecution, possible appeal and this information being made available. 

During 2008 & 2009, the RSA increased its range of educational and advisory services to the industry, helping them to become and remain compliant.

Two major, inter-linked priorities were set in 2008:

  • highly-visible, comprehensive road transport enforcement and
  • a communications campaign aimed at informing drivers and operators of their legal obligations.

In the final quarter of 2009 legal representation services were put in place across the State to enable the RSA to take prosecutions for breaches of legislation dealing with driving times, breaks and rest periods, tachographs, Working Time and operator licensing.
