asked the Minister of Transport what representations he has had from disablement organisations about the problems of long delays in securing driving tests, particularly for those changing from the invalid tricycle to a four-wheeled car; and if he will take steps to alleviate this situation.

We can trace no representations from organisations for the disabled on this matter. But special arrangements are made to give disabled people priority in obtaining driving test appointments. If an explanatory letter is sent with the application, a disabled candidate is fitted into the earliest suitable appointment which arises as a result of a cancellation.
