No changes on tractor licence regulations – Murphy

Senator Eugene Murphy has confirmed that Minister Jack Chambers, who has responsibility for road safety, has informed him that there are no current changes to the regulations around tractor driving licences and that no new regulations are due to be introduced.

The RSA has been made aware that the EU’s Fourth Driving Licence Directive in September 2024 will propose a revised definition of tractors.

Once the directive has been published, the RSA and the Department of Transport will consult with stakeholders in advance of the introduction of any relevant domestic regulations.

Until the new EU Driving Licence Directive is approved and enacted, the existing approach to tractor licencing will remain in place.
