Driving test update 


Driving test waiting list

If you are already on the driving test waiting list, please do not log in to MyRoadSafety to check for availability. Appointment slots are limited to those who have been invited to book a driving test and we will contact you directly when appointments become available.


If you have received an invitation to book a test, need to cancel a test, or wish to join the waiting list, please go ahead and sign in to MyRoadSafety now. For anyone else, we kindly ask you to visit another time when our portal is not so busy. Thank you for your patience at this time 


We can only offer test appointments to essential workers

If you are an essential worker and haven’t already received a test appointment but need one urgently please complete this online form. We will contact you when appointments become available.

If you are not an essential worker and have an upcoming appointment scheduled, please cancel your test. Otherwise, it won’t go ahead and the slot will be lost. Don’t worry, you won’t lose your fee. It will be saved as a service credit for you to book another test in the future.

Weather disruptions

Check if your driving test is affected by adverse weather conditions. Tests will be cancelled if conditions are unsafe.

Our structure

The overall structure and divisional responsibilities of the RSA.

Our background

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) came into being on 1 September 2006 as a statutory organisation created by the Road Safety Authority Act, 2006.

We are principally funded by, and responsible to, the Department of Transport.

Following the 2006 Act, functions previously undertaken by the Department of Transport, the National Roads Authority and the National Safety Council were transferred to the RSA.

This is the first time in Ireland that key activities related to road safety have been handed to a single statutory body. This means we can co-ordinate and implement road safety initiatives in a way that was not possible until now.

Our directorates

We are organised into directorates

  • Driver Testing and Licensing
  • Road Safety, Research and Driver Education
  • Finance and Commercial Services
  • Vehicle Standards, Testing and Enforcement
  • Corporate Strategy, Policy and Technology
