    Descriptive info: Graduated Driving License (GDL).. FAQs - Graduated Driving License (GDL).. What will be involved in the compulsory motorcycle lessons?.. An initial basic training programme covering on-road and off-road lessons has been developed calling on best practice.. The lessons will cover: rules of the road, motorcycle controls, technical checks, managing the vehicle and motorcycle riding skills.. Click here for more details.. The off-road element will be delivered by the driving instructor in a secure compound; the instructor will also oversee the on-road lessons.. Completing all the lessons will take a minimum of 16 hours.. Whilst there is no formal examination at the completion of the lessons, the trainer will continually assess the learner's progression through the modules.. How will the lessons be enforced?.. You will get a certificate when you finish your course of lessons and this must be kept with your learner permit.. For both car and motorcycle lessons, you will have to present evidence of having taken the lessons before sitting a driving test..

It is proposed to introduce changes to the test in late 2011 that will improve the learning experience..

Too often the experience in Ireland has been that the accompanying driver acts in a passive role..

Driver reference manuals will be published shortly.. Following the passing of legislation, the role of the accompanying driver will be formalised.. Before taking the driving test, the learner will be required to present a signed log book in which the accompanying driver will have signed off on aspects of the practice sessions undertaken.. What is the significance of introducing R Plates?.. In recognition that the learning process continues after the driving test is passed, some restrictions will continue to apply to drivers for two years after taking out a full licence.. New legislation is needed to introduce the R Plate.. The first related restriction will take effect after September 2011, when the lower alcohol levels are applied to novice drivers.. It is also planned to apply a higher level of penalty points to learner and novice drivers for specific high risk offences when the legislation is in place.. The R Plate also indicates to other road users that you are a novice driver.. What changes will happen to the driver theory test?.. The driver theory test was updated in 2006 and it will be further enhanced in late 2011..
