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.

Weather disruptions

Penalty Point Statistics

View Ireland's latest penalty point statistics by offence type or number of points incurred per driver, or view the number of drivers by licence type. You can take a closer look by viewing the statistics for a specific month or get a different perspective by rearranging by county, by offence category, alphabetically or highest to lowest.

This search facility is currently being redeveloped. Download the latest Penalty Point stats here

You can still use the search below for years 2011 - 2014.

Year

The report shows points on drivers' licences at the end of a given month, going back three years. The report does not represent a view of the total number of penalty points incurred historically, as points are wiped from a driver's licence after three years.

The 29 counties listed represent local authorities issuing driving licences. The additional 'no driver number' category represents drivers whose recorded details did not match a driver license number, e.g., Northern Irish and overseas licences

The offences have been grouped in Driver, Vehicle, Licence and Other for ease of reference online. This categorisation is not a legal interpretation.

Breakdown of penalty points incurred in offence type by county

There are no results to display. The data may not yet have been collated for the month you have choosen.
