Due to the resurgence of Covid-19 in Europe as well as Ireland, further extensions of driving licences are currently under consideration at EU level. A decision on this issue is expected shortly. This extension, when agreed, will allow those who cannot apply for a licence in person due to the Level 5 restrictions to continue to drive for the period of the extension.
