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.
