New Drivers Licences
National Driver Licence Service
From 19th January 2013 paper driving licences and learner permits have been replaced by credit card-sized, plastic licences in an EU-wide change to upgrade all driver licences. The Road Safety Authority (RSA) now has responsibility for driver licences in Ireland and a National Driver Licence Service (NDLS) will deliver the service.
Driver licence and learner permit applications will continue to be made to your local Motor Tax Office with the new licence being posted to you directly from the new Plastic Card Provider Company.
Further information about the new system and application forms are available on www.ndls.ie.
