Galway Theory Test Centre

Galway Theory Test Centre Address

The location of the test centre for driver theory test candidates is:

43 Forster Street,
Galway City,
H91 R68N



Although relatively remote, Galway can be accessed via the N59, N6, N67, and N83. The test venue is based in central Galway, and there are therefore ample parking facilities nearby.

Coach Station Car Park

This is the closes sizeable car park to the test centre. The site operates 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, and prices are set reasonably. Parking is charged at €2.70 per hour, or, if you’re planning to extend your stay in Galway, you can purchase a 24-hour ticket for €20. Overnight parking, which requires entry after 6.00 pm and exit prior to 9.00 am, is priced at €10.

All payment methods are accepted, and the site accommodates disabled parkers.

As referenced, the onwards journey to the venue is short. On leaving the coach station, turn right onto Fairgreen Road and advance until you arrive at the Forster Street junction. Turn right, and advance around 50m down this road. The test centre is located just beyond Snoozles Tourist Hotel.

City Centre Multi-Story Car Park

If the coach station is full, we recommend using this facility. This site has over 400 spaces, so there should never be a shortage of spaces. Opening hours and pricing are set identically to the Coach Station car park. To reach the test centre, turn left onto Fairgreen Road, then follow the instructions as articulated above.

51: This is the Cork to Galway service. Again, please exit at Galway Bus Station.

As above.

Dublin Airport-Galway Coach Station:
