Ireland helps its driver services

Ireland is one of many EU and national Governments taking steps in response to the disruption caused by Covid-19 to driver licensing services. 

Ireland took its first steps towards helping drivers licensing services when, just this month, Minister of State Hildegarde Naughton T.D. gave details of an extension to the expiry dates of driving licences. 

The extension applies to licences with expiry dates between 1 July 2021 to 31 October 2021. If the licence expires anytime between the two dates and it hasn’t gotten a previous extension, then a 10-month extension will be added to its expiry date.  

NDLS’s website provides an expiry date calculator to show the new expiry date for your licence.
