The Keighley and Skipton driving test centres are normally manned by three examiners. Owing to the unexpected resignation of one of these, only two men have recently been based at the two centres. A third permanent examiner is expected to be posted there on 1 July. Meantime, the traffic area office is posting in examiners temporarily to help out. A fourth permanent examiner is being recruited as soon as practicable.
