Five LGV testing centres are to move next year, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has announced.
LGV test centres in Norwich, Peterborough, Plymouth, Southampton and Wrexham are to stop testing by March 2016 and the DVSa is now looking for privately owned sites to deliver vocational - bus, lorry and car+trailer - tests in those areas.
The agency said this was part of its strategy “to provide more tests at local, third-party sites, helping to reduce travel time and fuel costs”.
Final day of testing and details of alternative sites have yet to be decided and the DVSA said that if someone was interested in hosting tests from their own site they should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The sites to close are:
Jupiter Road, Norwich
Saville Road, Peterborough
Agaton Fort Road, Plymouth
Bottings Trading Estate, Southampton
Llay Road, Wrexham
