Issues and Concerns

Any issues and concerns you have in relation to your driving test and driving licence application

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.

Medical issues

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 which may require specific arrangements on the day of the test, please notify us in advance of the appointment date so that we can make these arrangements for you.


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.
