asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the average waiting time for driving tests.

On 27th October it was 22½ weeks.I very much regret that candidates are having to wait so' long for their tests Demand for tests has increased considerably this year and we need additional examiners. There are vacancies throughout the country, but the results of recent recruitment efforts have been disappointing. We are accordingly intensifying our recruitment campaign. Application forms can be obtained from my Department. The address is Room 420, Lambeth Bridge House, London SE1.
