Driving instruction is given by instructors who are private individuals who are self employed or employed by a Driving School. As they are not employees of the Road Safety Authority individual instructors and driving schools should refer to the roadmap and to the National Return to Work Safely Protocol, noting that high-risk services are not to resume until Phase 4 at the earliest.
The Road Safety Authority (RSA), in consultation with my Department, and subject to the advice of the health authorities, is currently putting together a plan for the resumption of its services, including the carrying out of driving tests and the issuing of driving licenses and learner permits. This plan is being developed in line with the roadmap and with the National Return to Work Safely Protocol.
