Essential Driver Training - getting your fully driving licence

Learning to drive and passing your test is an important personal achievement, so we at easyDrive want to help you get started, below is information on the 4 STEPS you will need to successfully complete in order to get a full Irish driving licence.

4 steps to obtaining your full driving licence

  • Pass the driver theory test

  • Get a learner permit

  • Practice driving

  • Pass the driving test


Step 1: Driver theory test

You can APPLY HERE for the category of Driver Theory Test that you would like to book on the DTT webiste.

The first step in learning to drive is to pass the driver theory test which is a computer-based examination of motoring rules and practices appropriate to the category of vehicle you wish to be licenced to drive.


The driver theory test checks your knowledge of:


  • The rules of the road - An in-depth knowledge of the Rules of the Road is essential, not only for drivers with full licences but for learner drivers also

  • Risk perception

  • Eco-driving

  • Hazard awareness

  • Good driving behaviour


CLICK HERE for Official Driver Theory Test Revision Material



There are 3 things you must do to complete this step:


  • Revise official RSA material - you can purchase learning portal subscriptions, books and CD-ROMs on the theory test website.

  • Book a test - you can book and pay for your driver theory test online.

  • Provide appropriate ID - for a list of acceptable forms of identification that you must show on the day of your theory test in order to complete the exam. If you do not have the appropriate ID you will not be allowed to take your exam and you will lose your test fee.

What do I need to Apply for the Theory Test?

To avoid testing delays please ensure your name and PPSN are registered correctly.

Note: Please have a credit / laser card and PPSN (formerly RSI number) readily available. For C (Bus) and D (Truck) tests, please also have your driving license number readily available

Step 2: Learner Permit

Once you have passed your driver theory test, you can apply to your local NDLS centre for a learner permit (enclosing your driver theory test certificate)


Your learner permit allows you to drive on all public roads, except motorways, for the purpose of learning to drive. All learner permit holders, with the exception of those who hold a learner permit in category A1, A2, A, AM, or W, must be accompanied at all times by an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) or someone who holds a full, valid driving licence in the same category for more than two years


You can apply for your driving test when you hold a learner permit however first time learner permit holders must hold their learner permit for six months and complete Essential Driver Training (EDT) or Initial Basic Training (IBT) before sitting the driving test. A reduced EDT programme is available for drivers who currently hold a full car licence (category B) from a country that does not have a licence exchange agreement with Ireland.
