The RSA is the data controller of this personal data. As a data processor for the RSA, Prometric (Ireland) processes your personal information only for the purposes of registering and scheduling you for a test, administering that test, and processing the results.
At no time will your personal information be used by Prometric (Ireland) or the RSA for any other purpose without your permission. Your personal information, including your test results, will be provided to the RSA for the purposes of providing scores, certification, or other benefits to you in your future driving licence applications.

Prometric (Ireland) may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Our employees, agents and contractors who have access to personal data and information are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with Prometric (Ireland)’s obligations to the RSA and in compliance with applicable law and we seek assurances from such third parties that they will provide the same level of privacy protection as Prometric (Ireland) requires and adheres to.
