LATEST NEWS / ARTICLES
New N-Plate Law Communication
The Following is a communication A.D.I.'s received for distribution to all our clients:
" Dear ADI
As you may already be aware, the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport announced changes to the driver licensing system that apply to newly qualified novice drivers and first time learner permit holders.
These changes are important road safety measures that form part of the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) system, one of the key actions in the current and previous Government Road Safety Strategies aimed at improving how we train, test, licence and protect learner and novice drivers.
The changes are as follows:
• From 1 August, N plates are a legal requirement for any driver who gets their first full driving licence in any category on or after that date.
• Any driver who receives their first ever learner permit on or after 1st August will be subject to a lower penalty point threshold, a total of seven penalty points rather than 12. This does not apply to anyone currently in the system, eg. people who already have a learner permit or full driving licence before 1st August.
• Non-display of N plates is an offence under traffic law and is punishable by a fine not exceeding €1,000 for a first offence. On becoming a fixed change the failure to display an N-plate will carry 2 penalty points on payment of a fixed charge, or 4 on conviction.
The purpose of the GDL system is to reduce the number of collisions, deaths and injuries among learner and novice drivers, particularly among the high risk 17 to 24 year olds, during the learning to drive period and period immediately after they pass their test.
Research tells us that novice drivers are most likely to be killed on our roads in the first two years after passing their test due to their inexperience. Therefore, these measures are designed to protect our most vulnerable road-users so that they can become safe, competent and socially responsible drivers, helping to ensure we have fewer collisions, fatalities and injuries on our roads.
The Road Safety Authority (RSA) are having a public awareness campaign to make other relevant stakeholders aware of these new requirements .
We would be grateful if you could share this information with your colleagues and Learners. For further information on driver licensing and learner drivers please visit www.ndls.ie
With thanks and appreciation for your continued support of road safety.
Driver Education Section – Road Safety Authority "
All Novice Drivers will be able to drive on their own. This has been clarified by the Department of Transport.
The Road Safety Authority will be supplying people who pass the driving test with N-Plates for six months as and from the 1st August.
DRIVING SAFETYThis school of motoring looks forward to continually meeting new beginner / learner drivers and the challenge of training them from the beginning until they pass their driving test, with safety being our number one priority. Cú-Chulainn Driving Lessons Cork promise we will do our very best to help you in our driving courses.
So go on give us that call today on 087-7811409.
