The right for Asylum Seekers to get Irish Driving licenses has moved a step closer.
In recent days, a case in the High Court was won with a judgement that Asylum Seekers are "ordinarily resident" in Ireland;- meaning that a previous related barrier could be removed.
It is not clear if new legislation is now required but either way, the Dept of Transport will require some time to adjust its systems to allow asylum applicants to take driving lessons and take the test. It is, therefore, NOT POSSIBLE yet BUT as long as there are no more legal challenges this should change very quickly now.
