Cwmbran Driving Test Centre

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 11 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the future of the Cwmbran Driving Test centre. (90079)

The delivery of driving tests in Cwmbran will be transferred to a new multi-purpose test centre (MPTC) planned for Newport, eight miles away. The start of operations at Newport MPTC is planned for later in 2006.

No date has yet been agreed for the cessation of testing at Cwmbran. The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) will endeavour to give maximum notice to interested parties before driving tests in the area are transferred to Newport.
