Road Traffic


For most people the ability to drive is vital to maintaining their personal, social and family lives. The convenience and freedom of having a vehicle at your disposal is often overlooked until the facility is taken away and the resulting inconvenience becomes a reality. The penalty of losing your licence not only profoundly affects your life, but those of your family, friends and employer who have to facilitate you while you are prohibited from operating a vehicle.

​​Road Traffic Acts set out the main provisions for motoring in Ireland. This legislation deals with issues such as vehicle licensing, vehicle standards, your obligations and responsibilities. Motoring offenses include drink driving, speeding, driving without evidence or insurance or motor tax, driving without due care and attention and driving without a seatbelt.
