If you are applying for your driving test or theory test online then you need to be careful in relation to what site you apply from. It is estimated that unofficial UK based sites are profiting to the tune of £200,000 per year by processing applicants for the driving test and theory test.
These rogue sites will charge you needless extra money (€23.00 extra for theory test and €18.00 extra for driving test) for just processing your application. Make sure you book your test through the official sites if booking online. These are www.theorytest.ie or www.rsa.ie. It is thought that 1 in 8 applicants got stung in this way last year. These rogue sites do not provide any hidden extras, they do the same job you could do yourself.
As an applicant you should pay €45.00 for the theory test and €85.00 for the car driving test.
