Lesley Young, Chief Driving Examiner, explains why we're introducing pulling up on the right into the car driving test from 4 December 2017 – and why this is real-life driving.
What we're doing to provide driving tests across Great Britain, and make sure that the test continues to assess the skills people need to help them through a lifetime of safe driving.
We recently launched a campaign taking a zero-tolerance approach to abuse towards our staff - I'm a driving examiner, and I experienced a verbal assault and threatening behaviour at work.
As we gear up for the changes to the driving test on Monday 4 December 2017, we want to give you some detailed information about the instructions driving examiners will give, so you know what your pupils can expect.
Back in April 2017, we announced that the driving test will change from 4 December 2017. Following my last blog post, I’ve received a number of questions about the changes so I wanted to give you more information about how they’ll work during test.
We’ve announced that the driving test will change from 4 December 2017, and in this post, we want to explain more about how the changes will affect driving instructors.
Peter Hearn explains what we're continuing to do to reduce driving test waiting times. Since September 2016, we’ve cut them from an average of 11.2 weeks to an average of 7.8 weeks.
Following my recent blog post on driving test waiting times, I wanted to tell you more about what we’re doing to improve how we train new driving examiners.
There's one week to go before the public consultation on improving the car driving test closes. So far we've had over 2,800 responses to the consultation and lots of feedback on my previous blog post, and on Facebook and Twitter.
Last August, Phil Lloyd shared with you what we were doing as an agency to reduce waiting times. Since then, we’ve recruited and trained more examiners and looked at other ways where we can have a more positive impact.
