Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
I thank Deputy Higgins for raising this issue. It is something on which the Government is working. Young people in particular need to be able to get on the road, especially in rural areas but also in urban areas, such as our shared constituencies in west Dublin. We are keen to see a return to driving lessons and driving tests and to enable theory tests to be done online, which would help. Some work is being done on this matter by the senior officials group on Covid. We should be in a position to issue some positive news, if not today, then in the near future.
