IMPORTANT NOTICE

Driving test update 

 

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.

Weather disruptions

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

Research

Research is crucial to the formulation of road safety policy.

Our research unit is responsible for collecting and analysing road safety data. This serves to deepen our understanding of why crashes happen and what we can do to prevent them.

The research unit is specifically responsible for:

  • Maintaining the road collision database and data system
  • Analysing collision data
  • Producing statistical reports on road collisions in Ireland
  • Conducting surveys of speed and seatbelt-wearing on Irish roads
  • Carry out cluster analysis on collisions on Irish roads
  • Undertaking multidisciplinary research to understand how collisions happen
  • Proposing and evaluating ways to prevent collisions and injuries
  • Participating in national and international research projects
  • Providing information to national and international bodies as well as the public
