As part of the broader easing of restrictions across Irish society I can confirm that the gradual reopening of the driving instruction industry will commence from the 10th of May.

Initial Basic Training (IBT) for all learner motorcyclists may resume from that date.

The Road Safety Authority will be contacting motorcycle instructors over the course of the week with further details of these measures.
