The Road Safety Association is to open a temporary Driving Test Centre this summer at the O’Raghallaigh’s GAA club grounds on the North Road whilst negotiations continue with the Office of Public Works and other public bodies for a permanent centre.

The CEO of the RSA, Moyagh Murdock broke the news in a letter today to local Fine Gael TD Fergus O’Dowd who has been campaigning for a test centre for Drogheda for some considerable time.

O’Dowd told Drogheda Life that he was delighted with the news which came about following his representations. In her letter Ms Murdock thanked the Deputy for his continued support for road safety.

“This centre will make a significant difference to the residents of South Louth, and East Meath and will be staffed by four permanent headquartered driving test staff" O'Dowd said.

“The Driving test centre will consist of a modular building that will hold a waiting area, interview room and welfare facilities as well as parking for 12 driving test applicants.

“The Road Safety Authority will continue to engage with the office of Public Works and other public bodies to look for a permanent test centre in Drogheda.”
