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

I am pleased to confirm the phased re-opening of the National Driver Licence Service centres from Monday 8 June, in line with Phase 2 of the Government roadmap for the easing of Covid 19 restrictions and the national return to work safety protocol. Further information is available at and

The  operation of the National Driver Licence Service is the statutory responsibility of the Road Safety Authority. The Authority continues to work on expanding the online facility to accommodate all driving licence and learner permit application types. When this facility becomes available the Authority will update its website.
