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.

Report an Instructor

What to do if your instructor is unlicensed, or if you witness unlicensed driving instruction in your area.

Your instructor must be qualified

The RSA tests and regulates driving instructors. It is an offence for instructors to give you driving lessons unless they are on our register of approved driving instructors (ADI).

Make sure your instructor is an ADI before you take any lessons. You can check that your instructor is qualified in two ways:

  • Find the instructor on the list of approved instructors
  • Ask to see the instructor’s permit (it must be displayed in the driving school vehicle)

The revenue commissioners are also particularly keen to learn the details of un-licensed driving instructors and you can contact them on a dedicated number - 01 6748949. All reports to this number will be treated in strict confidence - you do not have to give your own contact details.

Report an unlicensed instructor

If your instructor is unlicensed, or if you witness unlicensed driving instruction in your area, please report the matter to your local Garda station or to the RSA at the details below:

ADI Enforcement Officer,
Road Safety Authority,
Moy Valley Business Park, Primrose Hill,
Ballina, Co. Mayo

E-mail: [email protected]
Lo-Call: 1890 50 60 80 or 096 25007

Please include the following details:

  • Name of instructor
  • Make of vehicle
  • Vehicle registration
  • Location
  • Date witnessed
  • Time witnessed

Please note that it is best not to approach someone you suspect of giving unlicensed driving instruction - you should note the details above and report it to us or the Gardai.
