Breathnach hopes new driving test centre in Dundalk will reduce wait times

The RSA driving test centre is opening on September 24th on the Newry Road, replacing the current centre in Na Piarsaig GAA Club –
Fianna Fáil TD Declan Breathnach has said he welcomes the new RSA Driving test centre which is opening on the Newry Road in Dundalk, and hopes the new centre will reduce waiting times for tests.


“The new RSA Driving Test Centre is a welcome initiative, replacing the current one in Na Piarsaig Gaa Club.”


“I know how stressful young people and their families find the long and costly process of doing their theory test, the 12 mandatory lessons and driving test before getting their full license”


“The RSA states the average waiting time in the current Dundalk test centre is over 6 and a half weeks; but the forecasted waiting time for the upcoming month increases to 7 and a half weeks, which I imagine is due to the changing over of premises. I know people are anxious to attempt or re-attempt their test promptly, and I hope over time the new centre will lead to reduced waiting times.
