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.

Vehicle Safety Checks

Driving for work involves a risk not only for the driver, but also for fellow workers and members of the public, such as pedestrians and other road users. All organisations requiring their employees to drive in the course of their work should have robust procedures in place regarding the safety of vehicles.

Vehicle pre-use daily checks are a simple and effective way to spot potentially dangerous issues before vehicles are used. Employers and self employed people should have a system of routine daily checks in place to ensure that vehicles are in good working order before the start of a journey.

The Road Safety Authority in collaboration with the Health & Safety Authority and An Garda Siochána have developed a series of simple vehicle walk around posters and checklists to highlight the importance of regular driver vehicle checks and to assist drivers in carrying out the checks. These are aimed at the most commonly found work vehicles and cover Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), Vans and Light Goods Vehicles (LGVs) and Bus and Public Service Vehicles (PSVs).
