Rules of the Road

An in-depth knowledge of the Rules of the Road is essential, not only for drivers with full licences but for learner drivers also.

The Rules of the Road are for all road users – drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, horse riders and cyclists. The rules form the basis of road safety in Ireland. You must know these rules well in order to be a safe and socially responsible driver and pass your driver theory test and practical driving test.

Once you have passed your driver theory test, you can apply to your local NDLS centre for a learner permit (enclosing your driver theory test certificate).

When you have your learner permit you should book driving lessons from a Approved Driving instructor (ADI) to learn how to become a safe and socially responsible driver.
