Text messages are being sent this week to customers whose driving licences have recently expired to remind them to renew their licence now.


We are aware that in some rare cases the plastic covering on a driving licence or learner permit may begin to peel. Peeling may be found on or around the holographic part of your driving licence or learner permit. For that reason, there is a new plastic foil covering on all plastic card driving licences and learner permits issued since August 2020.

The new plastic foil offers more robustness and durability without changing the appearance or the validity of the card in any way. If your driving licence or learner permit is showing signs of significant peeling, you can have it replaced. You can do so by posting your driving licence/learner permit to RSA Returns, PO 13276, Dublin 15.
