In person driver theory tests are set to return next month.
The RSA will gradually re-open its 40 test centres from June 7th with capacity for 25,000 theory tests per month.
Before Covid, 15,000 tests were carried out per month.
Minister of State Hildegard Naughton says the RSA will be able to increase capacity to 50,000 test a month, in order to deal with the backlog.
She says the amount of driving tests taking place, including tests for non essential workers will gradually increase.
