Title: Safe, Secure, Sustainable: the motoring services agencies (strategy)

Organisation: Department for Transport

The Government’s new motoring services strategy covers the future of the Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA), the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA).

The strategy includes changes to the practical driving test to ensure it reflects the modern driving experience, including encouraging ADIs to place an emphasis on learning to drive, rather than simply learning to pass the test.

Also in the new strategy are plans to allow learner drivers accompanied by an ADI to drive on the motorway network in a dual controlled car.

It also outlines plans to expand the range of test slots available outside daytime weekday slots, on a permanent basis, across a wider range of centres than at present.

Other areas of focus in the strategy include looking at how to ensure haulage and bus and coach operators can access all services efficiently and flexibly to suit their needs, and how to best support the UK automotive industry.
