Your test need not be stressful, as we provide comprehensive training as described elsewhere on this website, and simulate the event by taking you through one of the actual Newcastle West test routes the examiners use. This is representative of the challenges incorporated into Irish testing routes generally, and we will give you ample time to practice manoeuvres.

Should you decide to use another testing station in County Limerick or beyond, then we will suggest another route you may like to practice on before you report for the actual test.

Stages of the Irish Driving Licence Test

  • Theoretical Test – Approximately 15 questions each concerning the rules of the road and the meanings of road signs
  • Under Bonnet Test – An oral examination of the basic functioning of the engine, and which fluids and components to check before starting
  • In-Car Test – The examiner asks you to point out and describe in-car driver controls to make sure you know when to use when
  • Practical Test – After a windscreen and tyre examination you are finally free to drive around the test circuit under instruction of the examiner

About the Flutters

A driving test is stressful even for the best learner driver. For the first time you are on your own, without your driving instructor or sponsor beside you. To make matters worse you replaced them with a steely-eyed examiner doing their best to be cold and clinical.

Forget about trying to engage them or cracking jokes. Concentrate on doing what they tell you, and ask questions if you are unsure. And when you do make the odd mistake – as you surely will – do not dwell on it. Move on to the next challenge. Most of our students pass and so should you. Good luck and we look forward to hearing of your success.
