The proof of payment must be an official bank receipt. It must contain the following as a minimum as part of the official receipt (not handwritten):

  • Name and address of bank/logo
  • Bank number of transfer
  • Amount paid (in euro)
  • The account number from where the money is being transferred i.e. your account or employer's account and RCSI account number into which the money is being transferred

The name of the agent and the name and address of the prospective employer must be handwritten on the bottom of the proof of payment. If you have neither, please write "none".

Your application will not be processed and will be returned until the details above are attached.

An invoice will not be issued. A receipt of the proof of payment will form part of your invitation email. If the fee was paid by someone other than you the applicant, then you must forward the invitation email to them. No other receipt will be automatically issued.

Unused fees

There is no automatic refund of unused fees, except where an applicant is unsuccessful at the second attempt at the theory test, in which case the portion of the fee for the practical test will be refunded (as such an applicant would not be eligible to take this part if they are unsuccessful at the theory test).

Otherwise, if any part of a fee is not used, a request may be submitted to use against payment for another applicant or for a refund. A refund is not guaranteed and is considered on a case-by-case basis. If granted, an administration fee will incur.
