Driving Tests: Standards

Volume 464: debated on Thursday 11 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what duty her Department has to report to the police or any other relevant authority if a driver assessed by the Driving Standards Agency's driver quality monitoring programme is judged to be unacceptable with serious faults or unacceptable with dangerous faults. (155923)

The driver quality monitoring assessment is not a driving test, but an assessment of the driver on behalf of the bus operator. If a driver commits a serious or dangerous fault this will be relayed to the bus operator, which will then follow its own internal procedures. The Driving Standards Agency does not have a duty to report this to the police or any other relevant authority.
