IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

Closure of driving test application system from Thursday 26 November 2020.  

Our brand new customer portal, MyRoadSafety will go live on Monday 30 November 2020. This will give you access to all of our digital services, including a new and improved driving test booking system.

MyRoadSafety allows you to safely manage your driver information, test bookings, permits and licences from the comfort of your own home.   However, to prepare for this move we‘ll have to close our current driving test application system and ask for your patience while we get things up and running for you. We expect the portal to be available at 2pm on Monday.

The law

Simple stuff can save lives.

What is the law?

  • You can only use your mobile phone while driving if you're dialling 999 or 112 for an emergency.
  • If the Gardai charge you, it is a fine of €60 and you will get 2 penalty points
  • If you don't pay the fine, you may be convicted in court, get 4 penalty points and charged €2,000.

Why can't you use a mobile phone while driving?

Using a mobile phone means you're not concentrating on driving.  And that means you're putting your life and other lives in danger. Even using a blue tooth or a hands free system while driving may lead to a fine if it causes you to drive recklessly.

If someone calls you while you're driving, tell them you'll call them back or pull over to take the call.  Conversely, if you call someone and they are driving, tell them you'll call them back or ask them to pull over.
