All driver theory tests suspended with immediate effect
Candidates with tests scheduled from now until 19 April will have their tests rescheduled free of charge.
The Road Safety Authority (RSA) has announced that all driver theory tests have been suspended until at least 19 April.
The RSA was informed by Prometric, the provider of the Driver Theory Test service, that it is suspending the provision of the service in light of Covid-19 restrictions as it is no longer in a position to provide a normal level of staffing that maintains the integrity of the service while adhering to social distancing guidelines.
The suspension takes effect immediately and will be subject to ongoing review.
Candidates who have a driver theory test scheduled up to 19 April – the date to which emergency measures were extended by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on Tuesday - will be contacted to notify them that their test will be rescheduled free of charge when the service resumes.
Updates around the re-starting of tests will be published on www.theorytest.ie.
Prometric has advised that it will continue to provide a service in emergency cases; arrangements for this will be published on www.theorytest.ie by Wednesday afternoon (25 March).
