Identification & Eligibility Requirements

Theory Test Ireland PSC Requirements

Once you have a Public Services Card (PSC) you can now book a theory test in your chosen category. Please ensure you follow the instruction clearly when entering your details during the booking process.

Your middle name (if present on your PSC) must be entered into the middle name field in the booking form.

ATTENTION ALL CANDIDATES: Please ensure that the spelling of the name and the number on the Public services card with which you book your test matches exactly the spelling of your name and number on the Public Services Card that you will present at the test centre. This is very important as you may not be allowed to test if the names differ.

Identification Policy

All candidates must present their Public Services Card as the only acceptable form of identification. Failure to present this card at the test centre will result in you not being permitted to test and you will lose your fee.

You must ensure you use your full name as displayed on your Public Services Card when making your booking.

Please note the Public Services Card number must match the number used when booking your appointment.
