Assurances on driving test centre

CARRICK MP Sandra Osborne has sought assurances from the Government over the availability of driving tests in Girvan.

Ms Osborne said that the issue was recently raised with her by a constituent who said the number of driving test slots in Girvan had been reduced and that there were several people waiting for tests.

“I raised these concerns with the Government,” said Ms Osborne, “and was pleased to receive assurances from the Transport Minister that the Driving Standards Agency has not reduced the number of test slots available at Girvan and that there are no candidates on the ‘hold list’ as at 19 December 2011.”
