Do UK driving lessons count in Ireland?

I have just returned from the UK and I have had circa 30 hours driving lessons altogether. I cannot afford to take a further 12 lessons. Is there any way around this?

Hi John,

Well, the Road Safety Authority specifies that you must take 12 hours minimum of professional instruction before you can apply for your test, but they don’t specify that it must be done in Ireland. As the UK is recognised as a competent authority for driving standards (our licences are interchangeable etc) they might just accept that your existing 30 hours has you covered. Give them a ring on 1890 40 60 40 and ask.
