Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport)

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is responsible for the introduction of the new plastic card driving licence and will also, from January 2013, be the national driver licensing authority. The new system of driver licensing will require the RSA to tender for customer interface services. I understand from the RSA that they intend to ask tenderers for this service to offer their own proposals for the capture of photo ID.
