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.

 

Covid-19 safety measures

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

 

Weather disruptions

Check if your driving test is affected by adverse weather conditions. Tests will be cancelled if conditions are unsafe.

Community resources

We run educational campaigns targeting specific high-risk groups within the community, such as young males and ethnic minorities.

Our road-safety activities in schools and colleges are complemented by community-based programmes; we partner with sporting organisations and community groups.

Foreign language campaign

Ethnic minorities are a segment of the community that should be targeted with appropriate road-safety messages so we provide those for whom English may not be their first language with information on road safety and traffic laws in Ireland.

We've been running an ongoing foreign language road-safety campaign since March 2006. Our campaing includes:

  • a leaflet and poster entitled ‘Road Safety & the Law’. -- translated into eight languages and distributed through minority ethnic press, ethnic shops, airports and more.
  • Road-safety advertising in ethnic minority press in Ireland and popular websites.
  • An RSA presence at ‘Working and Living in Ireland’ industry-sponsored exhibitions in Ireland and abroad
