More Than 7,300 Fines Paid For Learner Or Novice Driver Offences In 2020


Share this article


Over 7,300 fines were paid for learner or novice driver offences last year.

It's almost exactly the same as 2019, despite Covid-related travel restrictions.

Learner drivers must be accompanied by a fully qualified driver at all times and stick to other rules.

If they break them, they face penalty points and fines of up to 120 euro.

Newly qualified drivers have to put N plates on their car for two years, or they could get points and fine of up to €90.

Last year 7,345 drivers paid Garda fines for learner or novice driver offences - just 11 fewer than the year before.

That's despite travel restrictions being in place for much of 2020, due to Covid-19.

30% of last year's fines were in Dublin, and that's followed by 654 in Cork, and 555 in Kildare.

Wexford, Waterford, Laois-Offaly and Limerick all had more than 300.
