Request an urgent driving test

Information if you are an essential worker and require an urgent driving test.

Please note that our customer service agents cannot book or cancel driving tests over the phone or offer any updates on waiting times, so we kindly ask that you do not telephone our call centre for this information.


Urgent tests can only be offered to essential workers at this time

Check if you are an essential worker.

If you are an essential worker who has already applied for a driving test and completed all of your driver training, please click on the 'Request Urgent Test' button below.

If you have not yet applied for a driving test, you must first sign up or log into our customer portal MyRoadSafety.ie and follow the instructions to apply for a test. Once this has been done and you have added yourself to the waiting list, you can then complete the urgent test request form to prioritise your application.

Please note that, even if you're an essential worker, you must have completed all 12 of your Essential Driver Training (EDT) sessions before sitting a test. This applies to car drivers only. Motorcyclists must have completed their Initial Basic Training (IBT).

If you’re unsuccessful, you can apply for a new driving test. If you need an urgent appointment, please click on the ‘Request an urgent test’ button below, complete the form and we’ll do what we can to help you. Please note that you must have already applied for your driving test before filling out this form.

If your request for an urgent test is successful, we will contact you directly when driving test appointments become available. At that point you will be invited to book a test.

Please note that appointment slots are by invitation only, so once your request for an urgent test has been accepted, you do not need to take any further action until you receive your booking invitation from us.
