An in-depth knowledge of the Rules of the Road is essential, not only for drivers with full licences but for learners too

The Rules of the Road are for all road users – drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, horse riders and cyclists. The rules form the backbone of road safety in Ireland. You must know these rules well in order to pass your driver theory test and the driving test itself.

Once you have passed your theory test, you can apply to your local NDLS centre for a learner permit (enclosing the theory test certificate).

When you have your learner permit you should book driving lessons from a professional driving instructor to learn how to drive safely and correctly
