Disruption to tests

What happens if weather or other conditions affect your driving test. 

Sometimes local and national weather conditions make it unsafe for driving tests to take place. This could be caused by flooding, ice, snow and high winds. Occasionally, we may have to cancel your test due to unforeseen circumstances such as tester unavailability.

If this happens, we will contact you and you will be added to our waiting list as a priority customer. When new driving test slots become available you will be invited to log into MyRoadSafety.ie to make a new booking for a driving test free of charge.
