IMPORTANT NOTICE

Driving test update

 

Test appointments are by invitation only

Test appointments are by invitation only so if you’re already on the driving test waiting list, no further action is needed. We’ll contact you directly when slots 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.

 

Urgent Tests for essential workers

Under the current restrictions, we can only offer urgent tests to essential workers. If you’re an essential worker who has already applied for a test but need it urgently please complete this online form.

 

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 and you will be kept on the waiting list. We will contact you directly once the level 5 restrictions have been lifted and appointment slots are available.

We have introduced new safety measures to the driving test which candidates must follow. Know more

 

Weather disruptions

Check if you are an essential worker.

If you are an essential worker who has already applied for a driving test and need it urgently, please click on the 'Request Urgent Test' button below.

If you have not yet applied for a driving test, you must first sign up or log into our customer portal MyRoadSafety.ie and follow the instructions to apply for a test. Once this has been done and you have added yourself to the waiting list, you can then complete the urgent test request form to prioritise your application.

Please note that, even if you're an essential worker, you must have completed all 12 of your Essential Driver Training (EDT) sessions before sitting a test. This applies to car drivers only. Motorcyclists must have completed their Initial Basic Training (IBT).

If your request for an urgent test is successful, we will contact you directly when driving test appointments become available. At that point you will be invited to book a test.

Please note that appointment slots are by invitation only, so once your request for an urgent test has been accepted, you do not need to take any further action until you receive your booking invitation from us.
