Asylum seekers has a right to have driving licence Currently, asylum seekers who are given permission to work are not allowed to apply for drivers's licenses , this is an unfair practice as this restricts one from seeking for employment outside their locality. Public transport is very irregular outside Dublin County and many more.Allowing asylum seekers with work permits to obtain driving licence will be a welcome step in the right direction. Issuing somebody a work permit and denying them the right to obtain a driver's licence is cruel. Asylum seekers issued with work permits can only fully participate in the work  market if they are permitted to drive. We appeal the Government to consider this as a basic human right.

The communities and Ireland in general can benefit and grow with a workforce which is not restricted from movement.
