Driving Tests: Interpreters

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 27 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport with reference to the answer of 30 October 2007, Official Report, column 1301W, on driving tests: interpreters, what the cost of providing interpreters for practical car tests was in (a) 2003-04, (b) 2004-05, (c) 2005-06, (d) 2006-07 and (e) in 2007-08 to date. (188084)

The Driving Standards Agency does not provide an interpreter for candidates who require this assistance when they take a practical driving test. It is the candidate's responsibility to arrange and pay for this service, therefore the agency does not incur any direct costs.
