NEWS: Halfords To Offer Driving Tests
First they offered us a heady mixture of car parts in addition to bicycles, then they started out basic car parts fitting with their increasingly favorite, innovative ‘We Fit’ service in addition to at that will point Road Safety Minister, Stephen Hammond has given Halfords the green light to offer driving tests! The tests will be available via the Halfords store in Wellingborough via Tuesday 5 February. in addition to some other branches of Halfords across the country are anticipated to start offering tests in coming months, with all tests being conducted by Driving Standards Agency (DSA) examiners.
The government say: ‘The move will be part of an initiative to offer a more local service for driving test candidates. As well as using conventional test centres, DSA will be working with public in addition to private sector partners to provide driving tests in areas that will don’t have a local test centre.’
Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond said: “We are very pleased to be working with Halfords to provide a more local service for driving test candidates. that will will be a great example of working with private sector partners to provide an important local service that will will be convenient as well as being cost effective.”
The government will be currently consulting on proposals to improve the way all motoring services are delivered. The Motoring Services Strategy consultation outlines long term proposals to put customers firmly at the heart of the way motoring services are delivered, to ensure they best serve the consumer while getting the best possible deal for the taxpayer.
Presumably, all of the test cars will have a nice fresh Magic Tree hanging via the rear view mirror? No excuse not to…
