Since the pandemic, driver theory tests are in demand across the country…
There have been calls for a new pop-up test centre in Wexford.
It follows the news that Wexford’s pop-up test centre has been closed for “environmental reasons.” Those booked in to complete their driving test in Wexford were notified to reschedule their booking.
Sinn Fein TD Johnny Mythen has called for a pop-up test centre in Wexford, noting that the Driver Theory Test centre in Wexford could be not for a period of days or weeks, but instead, a period of “months….or longer.”
“My constituency is facing further disruptions to its already overloaded system due to the closure during the week of the driver theory test centre at Pierce Court, Paul Quay owing to a serious environmental issue. The closure will last for a few months or possibly longer.”
“Will the Government consider opening a pop-up centre or other alternative immediately, as we are all aware of young drivers’ need to get to work or college, particularly those in rural settings who have no other means of transport? This situation is leaving young Wexford drivers in a disadvantaged and stressful state,” Mythen said.
Wexford Weekly reached out to the DTT to expand on their reasons for closing and to discuss when they hope to reopen, but they have yet to respond.
