WORKERS’ PARTY spokesperson Éilis Ryan has said that the country needs a publicly-provided driver theory test service due to an ongoing backlog. 

At present, private company Prometric has to contract for delivering the driver theory test but Ryan has said that the privatisation of the test should be “phased out”.

The Road Safety Authority has acknowledged there is a backlog but says additional testing capacity has been delivered and that it continues to engage with Prometric.  

There are no driver theory tests available in Dublin between now and January 2021 and that Ryan argues that a public service would have adapted “far more quickly” to Covid-19.
