New regulations are on the way for people looking to get their drivers licence in Ireland.
Changes to the current system are being finalised in an effort to further bring down the number of people losing their lives on the country's roads.
Ireland is in the minority of European countries which do not have a formal programme on how people are taught to drive.
That could be about to change, with the introduction of the Graduated Driver Licensing system.
It will see learner drivers forced to undertake specific training before they can even apply for their test.
A logbook detailing the hours spent they have spent practising their techniques will also be required.
However, according to the Road Safety Authority, certain measures in similar systems abroad will not be included here, like a curfew on learner drivers, and a ban on carrying passengers.
