Driving Licences

Driving Licences and Learner Permits

National Driver Licence Service or NDLS, is the name given to the new, dedicated service which will receive applications for learner permits and driver licences.

Since January 2013 The Road Safety Authority has been tasked with delivering the driving licence and learner permit service. Security and safety are at the heart of the new service which will be delivered consistently throughout the country. Since the move from paper to plastic card, learner permits and licences are more secure, long-lasting and convenient. Now we’re adding another layer of security to make sure that the only person who uses your licence is you. This will help to keep unlicensed, illegal drivers off our roads.

The National Driver Licence Service NDLS centres located around the country have responsibility for issuing driving licence. Their office in Longford is located at Suite 3, Business Centre, Longford Shopping Centre, Longford Town. Further information is available at http://www.ndls.ie/
