Reduced waiting times for driving tests – Keogh

The waiting time for a driving test in Roscommon been significantly reduced in the last two years in a Government led initiative to improve safety on our roads, according to local election candidate in the Athlone LEA John Keogh.

“Two years ago the average waiting time for a driving test in Roscommon was 29 weeks, and that has now reduced to just six weeks. The average waiting time in Athlone has been reduced by 19 weeks from 27 weeks to eight in the same time,” Mr. Keogh said. “This is a very welcome reduction and both times are well below the national average.”
