Driving tests return to Southend

Wednesday 11th April, 2012 at 13:04 COMMENTS (0)

Driving test candidates in Southend-on-Sea are set to benefit from a better local service as the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) brings practical driving tests back to the town. 

The former driving test centre in Southend closed in 2008 when a new test centre opened in Basildon, but from 14 May DSA will begin testing from the Tickfield Community Centre on Southend's Tickfield Industrial Estate. 

The move is part of a strategy to offer a more local service for driving test candidates.  In areas without a local test centre where there is sufficient demand for tests, DSA is looking at offering tests on a part time basis from flexible premises such as community centres and other local authority buildings. 

Tests in Southend will initially be available two days a week on a Monday and Friday.
