As the safety of the public is of paramount importance at this time in all aspects of the Covid-19 crisis, my Department continues to be guided by National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) and national experts in relation to the resumption of services. 

My officials and the Road Safety Authority (RSA) are currently examining the possibility of resuming roadworthiness testing services in light of the roadmap recently published by Government and the National Return to Work Safely Protocol agreed by the employer and trade union representatives.

I hope to make further announcements in relation to these matters, subject to satisfactory developments in relation to public health, over the coming weeks.
