The DVSA wrote to you in December 2022 to update you on the work they are doing to create a modern, flexible and efficient driving test service that is less dependent upon fixed estate and takes advantage of the investment and development of new technology.
To test the proof on concept the DVSA are running trials at a number of driving test centres in early 2023, initially at Doncaster and Birmingham (Kings Heath).
They are now extending the trial to include additional sites which are:
- Dumfries driving test centre
- Mill Hill driving test centre
During the trial 50% of the tests at the centres taking part in the trial will be done from an alternative site close to the existing driving test centre such as community buildings or sports and retail centres. The DVSA will contact your pupils if their tests will be moved to take place from one of the alternative sites. If you made the booking for your pupil and you receive the email you must let them know.
