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.

Protecting our community

For families and society, the cost of death and injury on our roads is enormous. Sadly, many people in Ireland have been touched in some way by road traffic collisions. Road safety is everyone’s responsibility

The Community Road Safety Programme aims to create a sense of public and personal pride in our behaviour on the road. Whether we are pedestrians, motorcyclists, cyclists, drivers or passengers, we all need to take responsibility – and pride – in how we behave on the road.

Muintir na Tire, the National Community Forum and other organisations have asked us to develop a road safety programme which would address road safety issues at community level.

Many groups working in the area of road safety co-operated to develop this programme including:

  • Gardaí
  • education sector
  • health sector
  • local authorities
  • community groups
  • road crash survivors.

The result is a resource pack and an accompanying DVD. The pack has been developed with community groups for community groups.

We will train community leaders through Muintir na Tire and the National Community Forum to deliver this programme locally but the programme is not just for these organisations – anyone can receive training to deliver the programme to their local community.  We urge community groups to get involved with the Community Road Safety Programme and to promote it locally.

What is the Community Road Safety Programme?

It is based on the Rules of the Road and aims to change the attitudes and behaviour of drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists.

The programme focuses on five main topics:

  • speed and speeding
  • use of safety belts, child restraints and safety on buses
  • road user impairment through alcohol, illegal and legal drug use, driver fatigue and mobile phone use
  • unsafe behaviour towards or by vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists young children and older people
  • emergency services

The programme also features information on:

  • good driving practice
  • testimonies from road traffic collision survivors
