Written answers (Question to Transport)

The operation of the Driver Testing Service is the statutory responsibility of the Road Safety Authority (RSA). The protocol for scheduling appointments is an operational matter for the Road Safety Authority, and one in which I have no role.

I am therefore passing the Deputy's question to the Road Safety Authority for direct reply.  If a reply has not been received within 10 working days, the Deputy should contact my office.
