National Driver Licence Service or NDLS, is the name given to the new, dedicated service which will receive applications for learner permits and driver licences.
Since January 2013 The Road Safety Authority has been tasked with delivering the driving licence and learner permit service. Security and safety are at the heart of the new service which will be delivered consistently throughout the country. Since the move from paper to plastic card, learner permits and licences are more secure, long-lasting and convenient. Now we’re adding another layer of security to make sure that the only person who uses your licence is you. This will help to keep unlicensed, illegal drivers off our roads.
From Tuesday 29th October 2013, instead of applying for a licence or learner permit in your local motor tax office you will need to apply in person at one of the new National Driver Licence Service (NDLS) centres located around the country. For more information to to www.ndls.ie.
