There are approximately 2.2.million drivers in Ireland. Of this number there are 250,000 learner drivers. There are 51 driving test centres and 150 driving testers.
The procedure for a learner driver is to sit a theory and practical exam to show they have the basic skills to be able to drive safely on our roads and to successfully pass the driving test which lasts approx 40 to 45 minutes. The driving test is conducted by an examiner who is from the RSA.
As part of the LDrivers network you can access the ‘Test Info‘ section where you will can access a huge range of useful information with useful tips including preparing for the driving test.
Some tips for the driving test include:-
- Prepare in plenty of time for your driving test. Allow yourself whatever time it takes in order for you to feel confident in your driving ability
- The Rules of the Road book should be rehearsed and read at least once
- Know all of the road signs
- Only use a qualified RSA ADI (Approved Driving Instructor)
It costs €75 to apply for the driving test and it would be a shame to waste this amount of money by not preparing properly. LDrivers.ie only recommends for you to use a fully registered ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) to help you with the practical exam.
