Driver Test Waiting Lists
This is a matter for the Road Safety Authority. I have referred the question to the Authority for direct reply. I would ask the Deputy to contact my office if a response is not received within 10 days.
The driving test service is run by the Road Safety Authority (RSA) and this Department has no input into the scheduling of appointments.
The RSA provides a facility where driving test cancellations are made available to applicants who may need an urgent appointment. An applicant should contact the RSA directly and request that they be placed on the cancellation list. In order to be fair to all applicants, cancellation places will be assigned in order of the date of placement on the list.
If an applicant requires a driving test urgently for employment or emigration purposes, the RSA will make every effort to accommodate them.
