The chief executive of the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is to stand down in October.
DVSA chief executive Alastair Peoples is to retire from the agency and the Civil Service as a whole from October 2015 and his deputy Paul Satoor will takeover as interim CEO.
Peoples was head of the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) since 2009 and oversaw the merger between VOSA and the DVSA, becoming the chief executive on 1 July 2013.
Since 2013, the DVSA has worked on delivering savings to motor vehicle users including streamlining test centres as well as the introduction of the Standards Check for driving instructors.
Peoples said: "Being chief executive of DVSA has been hugely rewarding and I'm proud of what has been achieved in the relatively short time since the agency was created."
He added: "With these solid foundations in place, I am confident that this is the right time for the agency to prepare for a change in leadership."
