NIADIA have confirmed with NIAIC (Northern Ireland Approved Instructors Council) that theory tests due to expire during the COVID-19 pandemic are to be granted an extension.
Theory tests with an expiry date between 1st March and 31st October 2020 will be granted an 8 month extension. Off-road motorcycle pass certificates due to expire between these dates will be granted a 6 month extension. This will require legislative changes which, as announced by the Infrastructure Minister, Nichola Mallon, will come into force in September 2020 and be backdated to match the theory test expiry date.
