MP wants driving tests back in Southend

Wednesday 16th November, 2011 at 14:11 COMMENTS (0)

AN MP has launched a campaign to allow learner drivers to take their tests from makeshift venues across Southend. 

James Duddridge, Tory MP for Rochford and Southend East, said too many of his constituents were either facing long waits for tests at Basildon or they had to travel long distances to alternative centres elsewhere in Essex and beyond. 

The Driving Standards Agency have launched this scheme where they look at whether driving tests can be carried out from alternative venues, including local authority buildings, hotels or leisure centres.  Karen's Driving School first published this story in June 2011.
