QUESTIONS ON DRINK-DRIVING TO BE ADDED TO DRIVER THEORY TEST FROM 10 OCTOBER
8 September 2016: The Road Safety Authority (RSA) has announced that from Monday 10 October, questions on drinking and driving will be added to the Driver Theory Test for the Motorcycle, Car and Works Vehicles Driver Theory Test. This is in direct response to a report issued by the RSA earlier this year which showed that drink-driving is still a significant road safety issue, particularly among some young people.
The main Driver Theory Test Question Bank will have 17 new questions on alcohol and driving which can be found here.
Two of these questions will be presented in each of the changed tests from 10 October 2016. The overall format of the test will not change. Learning material on the new questions is available at www.theorytest.ie.
