Over 50,000 people are on the waiting list for a driving test, with the Road Safety Authority saying people who apply now are facing delays of approximately six months.

The driving test service resumed in July after being suspended during the lockdown, but has been operating at a reduced capacity.

Motoring journalist Michael Sheridan and Brian Farrell of the RSA joined us to discuss this.
