According to a report in today's 'Irish Daily Star', the incident occurred yesterday afternoon at the test centre in Tallaght, south Dublin.

The incident is alleged to have occurred after a young woman failed her driving test.

It is believed the woman left the centre without causing any fuss.

However, an hour later, a man, believed to be related to the woman, arrived at the centre in what has been described as an "agitated state".

A source told the newspaper: "It appears this young woman went home after failing her test and told her male relative about it.

"He went ballistic and arrived up at the driving test centre, where he issued threats to staff. The threats were fairly heavy, as the staff were frightened by them and immediately rang the gardai."

It's understood the man left the centre after gardai were called.

All tests at the centre were cancelled following the incident.

The centre in Tallaght is one of the busiest in the country with an 11-week waiting list.
