Written answers (Question to Transport)

As this is primarily an operational matter for the Road Safety Authority (RSA), I have referred your question to the Authority for direct response. If you do not receive a response within 10 working days, please contact my office directly.

I should note that any such additional resources would require to be met from the resources available to the RSA which, inter alia, would include a proportionate increase in the fees for driving tests.
