Dublin Driving Test Routes - Finglas, Raheny, Rathgar and Tallaght.

I have posted these Dublin driving test routes.They are routes currently used on RSA driving tests. A limit to this is that there are several other routes for each test centre, all of which can vary slightly if the tester chooses. Your ADI will be able to show you the other routes and the variations. But more importantly they will be able to show you the issues with your driving that you need to fix. It could be said that if your driving is good enough, you could go to any part of the country and pass the test. Best of Luck

"At the crossroads turn right, driving along the coast on Clontarf Road."

What do you do here if the oncoming traffic is also waiting to take their right.. Do they take right in front of you or behind you?
I find this junction confusing as traffic from the front took their right behind ne when i was waiting to take right turn.
Please guide

Either one is acceptable. You have to do what the other driver is doing.
