Vehicle Driver Testing Returns On Gradual Basis

The driver testing service resumed their testing of learner drivers on July 20th 2020, beginning on a gradual basis. This followed suspension of this service, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

At the time of the Covid-19 suspension on March 13th last, the average waiting time in Co. Tipperary for a driving test was less than six weeks.
Thurles: Waiting Time: 4.6 weeks.
Nenagh: Waiting Time: 5.5 weeks.
Tipperary Town: Waiting Time: 4.3 weeks.
Clonmel: Waiting Time: 4.8 weeks.

As stated, the Road Safety Authority (RSA) are currently delivering a reduced capacity at each test centre, in an effort to prioritise those customers who were on their waiting list, before the suspension of services.

For that reason, reliable data that could be published and would help customers understand when their future appointment might arise, is not yet available. The RSA however plan to publish waiting time information, for each centre, again in the next few weeks.

Interesting to note that the average number of deaths caused by motor vehicles in 2019 were 12 deaths per month.
Sundays were the most dangerous day in 2019 with 32 deaths happening, followed closely by Fridays with 26 deaths.

In 2019, Tipperary had the third highest number of road fatalities per county in the Republic, with 13 deaths.
