Last week the DVSA announced that they would be supplying an extra 150,000 driving test appointments over the next six months, in order to reduce the lengthy appointment backlog.
They are redeploying fully trained staff who are currently working in non-testing roles within the organisation. Hopefully this will make an immediate difference and help to significantly reduce current waiting times. According to the DSA new appointments should be fed into the booking system on a bi-weekly basis. For example, tests for the week starting November 27th will be added from Monday 13th November.
