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.

Please check Met Éireann's website for weather updates in your area and do not drive to the test centre if conditions are dangerous.

You may judge your local road conditions to be too dangerous for you to travel. If this happens, you can cancel your test at MyRoadSafety.ie and go to the My Bookings page where you will see a list of all your current bookings.

Select ‘Weather Conditions’ as your cancellation reason.  Don’t worry, you will not lose your fee and you will be kept on the waiting list.  We will contact you as soon as new test appointments become available and invite you to log onto MyRoadSafety to book a new test.
