Four Month Extension Granted For Driving Licences, Permits & NCTs


Every holder of a drivers licence, as well as those who are in receipt of a learner permit, that’s due to expire before June 30 will now remain valid for another four months

The government granted extension today is bestowed upon all licences, permits, NCTs, and theory and competency certificates.

The change means that for any person whose licence, permit, certificate, or NCT expires today, it will be valid for an extra four months.

The same circumstances will apply to anyone whose documentation is due to expire before the end of June and they will automatically receive a four-month extension.

Department of Taoiseach official Liz Canavan told a briefing:

“This will ensure that people will not lose out due to the temporary closure of the Road Safety Authority facilities and will in particular help to keep vital health and supply chain workers on our roads.”
