RSA Expresses Concern Over Unofficial Driving Test And Theory Test Websites

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is today, Monday 3rd October 2011, asking anyone booking a driving test online to do so only on the RSA’s official driving test website . And anyone booking a driver theory test online to do so on the official theory test website,

The call is being made as the RSA has become aware of certain websites in Ireland and the UK offering to book a theory test and driving test, for a charge.

There is no need for anyone to pay a third party website to book a driving test or theory test, as it can be done easily at or where the only cost you will incur is the cost of the test itself.

The RSA is also warning learner drivers of the dangers of passing on their personal details, such as PPS and driver number to these sites.

While such information is required to book a test, it should only be provided when booking a theory test and driving test on the official RSA Driving Test application website at and official driver theory test website at

The RSA has highlighted the gathering of such personal data by these unofficial sites to the Data Protection Commissioner, and National Consumer Agency. The RSA has also made contact with these websites to state our concerns.

The RSA has also responded by increasing its online marketing activity to signpost driving test and theory test candidates to the official RSA driving test and theory test booking websites.

To book a driving test visit the RSA’s online application website at:
