HC Deb 01 December 1955 vol 546 c255W
Mr. Hunter

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation the average length of time an applicant for a motor driving licence waits for a driving test in the Feltham and Hounslow district; and whether he will speed up these tests and end the delay.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

The most convenient centres for these districts are at Isleworth and Surbiton, where the waiting periods are ten and seven weeks, respectively. A large number of additional examiners are being recruited to reduce the delay generally throughout the country.
