Getting a Learner's Permit
Once you have passed your Driver Theory Test, the second step to getting your driver's licence is getting your learner's permit so that you can start your driving lessons. The learner's permit is something that you cannot bypass if you are really serious about learning how to drive. To legally drive on the road during your driving lessons, you must have a learner's permit with you. If you want to get a learner's permit, you can contact the local Motor Taxation Office or the local Garda Station for application forms. You can also download the application form for learner's permit on this link:
At the back of the application form, a checklist will be provided enumerating the different pieces of information that will also have to be present or available in order for your learner's permit request to be processed.
The checklist include the following:
Once you have submitted all of the necessary documents to your local authority, your application will then be reviewed and then you will be issued a receipt of application. Keep in mind that the receipt of application is not yet the actual learner's permit. You should be able to receive your final learner's permit within 10 days after the receipt of application.
When you have your learner's permit, you may then get started with your driving lessons.
