Driving centres in Galway will close along with those in the rest of the country until further notice.
This is due to the new public restrictions that have introduced over Covid-19, including National Driver Licence Service (NDLS) Centres and the national driving license services and the commercial vehicle testing system.
Minister Ross has told the government department with the Road Safety Authority (RSA) to bring in some restrictions in putting these services on hold.
He also stated that it’s vital when a person that holds a permit license or certificate that hasn’t expired or is out of date to keep them safe and in peace of mind while the Covoid-19 is going on.
The minister spoke that, that he is looking to bring in restrictions and make sure of the valid documents that people’s licenses are in date and will explain in more detail on what he will be aiming to do next.
“In the meantime, I want to make it clear that people should not and do not need to worry about these things,” Shane Ross said.
People now should be aware of these restrictions in place and should focus on following these restrictions which were brought in by the government last Friday.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar also spoke out when he announced about a further lockdown until 12 April that people should not leave their homes except in an emergency until at least Easter Sunday at the very latest.
Minister Ross said, “Road Safety law remains in force and will be enforced. Drivers must not speed or drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs and they must keep their vehicles roadworthy – for their sakes.”
