|Driving Tip of the Month
Should you take your instructor on your driving test? From Tuesday 6 April 2010 driving examiners will ask you, at the time you take your test, if they would like your instructor (or another observer - preferably the person who has taught them to drive) to sit in on your test and listen to the feedback at the end.
However, it is purely your choice.
So, should you ask your Instructor to sit with you? Watch the video and find out about the benefits of taking someone with you on your driving test.
LVG, the parent company of driving instructor business Red Driving School, has been bought just days after going into administration.
A district council in East Sussex has called for a change to the way drivers are tested and taught to ensure they are fully equipped to deal with rural roads.
Driving examiner strike
The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union is asking its members to take strike action on Monday and Tuesday, 8th and 9th March.|
This includes Driving Examiners
If you have a driving test booked for either day, the DSA ask you to attend as scheduled. Not all examiners and staff are members of the union so some could still report for work.
If you can’t take a test because of the action, you will have the test rebooked automatically, free of charge, and an appointment confirmation will be sent by email or post.
