HC Deb 02 August 1935 vol 304 cc2992-3W

asked the Minister of Transport the number of examiners and the places of examination for drivers residing in the Metropolitan police district who wish to obtain driving licences; whether any congestion has yet occurred at these centres; and, if so, whether he intends to appoint temporarily a number of extra examiners in any special areas?


in pursuance of his answer [OFFICIAL REPORT, 1st Aug., 1935; Col. 2830; Vol. 304] circulated the following information:

The number of examiners in the various areas is adjusted from time to time according to the number of tests to be carried out. There are six examination centres in the Metropolitan Police District, the names of which I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT. The routes for driving tests are varied frequently in order to avoid annoyance to residents and traffic congestion.

Following is the information:—Hendon, Wood Green, Ealing, Stratford, Surbiton, and Norbury.
