Issues and concerns
If you have any worries or concerns in relation to the driving test, it is important you talk to the RSA. Chances are your worries are without foundation but there are legitimate problems that crop up from time to time which may affect your ability to take a driving test and acquire a driving licence afterwards.
There are some medical conditions and disabilities that require a medical report to be produced before a driving licence can be issued.
If you have a disability, you will need to notify us in advance of the test so we can make the necessary arrangements.
If you cannot speak English, are deaf or hard of hearing, you are permitted to have an interpreter with you for the first (oral) part of the test. This person must not be your driving instructor, and may not accompany you during the practical element of the test.
