Written answers (Question to Transport)

Dates for the resumption of Road Safety Authority (RSA) services, and any special arrangements which will need to be put into place to allow for the provision of these services, will be determined in consultation with the relevant health authorities.

The RSA, in planning to reopen driver testing services, will consider all factors, including the backlog of people waiting for tests. Any representative groups who believe they have a solution to address the growing backlog of people awaiting driving tests while still maintaining social distancing and other restrictions in place at that time, should contact the RSA.
