Drivers may soon be able to take driving tests through Halfords

The Government has announced that Driving tests could soon be available from Halfords car store branches.

Driving Standards Agency (DSA) choose Halfords as a mostly preferred partner to provide driving tests premises away from traditional test centres.

In future driving Tests might also be conducted at some universities, while there is also the possibility to involve Fire and Rescue Service.

DSA Tests will continue to be conducted by DSA examiners within the scheme which focuses on 21 locations in five different areas - Glasgow, Manchester, Worcestershire, Kettering in Northamptonshire and Watford in Hertfordshire.

Road Safety Minister Mike Penning said: "It is vital that public services are as open and accessible as possible. This initiative is a great example of how working with partners in the public and private sectors can help to ensure that we offer people the best possible service wherever they live.

"Our aim is to provide all driving test candidates with a local service that is convenient as well as being cost effective."

Halfords chief executive David Wild said: "We want to help motorists wherever we can, so we look forward to working in partnership with the DSA to provide a first-class service for drivers taking their tests."
