Booking your Driving Test
Driving tests can be booked online, over the phone or in person at your local Roads & Maritime Services Office. Due to the Graduated Licencing System you need to understand what stage of the licencing process you are at in order to book the correct test. You need to complete the Hazard Perception Test before you can book the driving test. Unfortunately some people think they have booked a driving test when in fact they booked the Hazard Perception Test. Then they turn up on the day with a car to do a driving test only to discover that they have not booked the driving test.
It is important when booking your driving test to consider what car you will use for the test. The Roads & Maritime Services do not provide cars for the test. If you are planning on using your driving instructors car for the test you will need to coordinate the date and time of the test with your driving instructor.
When you book your driving test you will be charged a fee. That fee covers the cost of doing the driving test. When you pass your driving test you will be charged another fee for your new drivers licence. Their are exemptions to driving test fees for pensioners and concession card holders.

How long is the driving test
Each driving test is designed to take 45 minutes. This includes time for the examiner to check your log book, licence details and conduct a roadworthy assessment of your vehicle prior to the test. Then mark your test and record the results on the computer at the end of the test. Usually the driving component of your test will take about 30 to 35 minutes. However it may take more or less time depending on the traffic at the time of your test. If your test takes longer than the 45 minutes you did not drive any further during your test. It just means you spent more time in traffic.
You need to complete your driving test in order to pass the test. So if you do get a test that goes over 45 minutes don’t panic you are just experiencing heavier traffic or road works.
