377 cars driven by unaccompanied learner drivers have been seized since the introduction of new legislation.
Since December, gardaí have been able to impound any vehicle being driven by an unaccompanied person on a provisional licence.
Learner drivers have long been required to be accompanied by someone with a full licence.
The law is known as the 'Clancy Amendment'.
It's named after Geraldine Clancy and her daughter Louise, who died in a road crash involving an unaccompanied learner driver in 2015.
Between December 22nd and February 10th, gardaí seized almost eight cars per day on average - a total of 377 cars.
'Criminalising young drivers'
Under the recently-introduced legislation, impounded vehicles are only released once the 'appropriate fee' is paid.
The Irish Times reports that motorists who have their cars impounded potentially face court fines of up to €1,000.
They also face release fees of €125 for the first day and €35 for each additional day
However, Kerry TD Michael Healy-Rae suggests the rules are criminalising young drivers.
He argued: "These young people... what they're guilty of is they're trying to go to college, they're trying to educate themselves, they're trying to go to part-time jobs to earn a little bit of money. Now they're being criminalised.
"I disagreed with it then, I disagree with it now. It's a money-making racket for the State."
