These regulations expand the extension of validity of learner permits provided for by the Road Traffic (Licensing of Drivers) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2020 (S.I. 125 of 2020), which were brought in as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. A learner permit that expired during the period beginning on 1 March 2020 and ending on 30 June 2020 has now been extended for a further 4 months from the original 4 month extension provided.
The learner permit extension shall now be deemed to have been granted for a period of 8 months and the date of expiry shall be 8 months after the expiry date specified on the permit. Learner permits that are due to expire during the period beginning on 1 July 2020 and ending on 31 October 2020 will now be extended for an additional 4 months. The date of expiry for these permits shall be 4 months after the expiry date specified on the permit. The above extensions apply to all the categories listed on the learner permit from the date of expiry for each category.
