Learners will again be able to take their tests in Hull thanks to an agreement between the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and Hull City Council.

From Monday 3 February, the DVSA will be offering car and on-road motorcycle tests from Craven Park Training and Enterprise Centre, Preston Road, Hull HU9 5HE. Since September candidates in Hull have had to travel to Beverley to take their test following a health and safety issue with a neighbouring property to the permanent Hull test centre.

DVSA continues to work with the Health & Safety Executive and the Environment Agency to find a solution to the problems that have resulted in this temporary closure of Hull test centre.

DVSA Chief Executive, Alastair Peoples, said:

“We want to provide the best possible service for all our candidates, and this includes making sure that people can take their test at a convenient location.

“We are very grateful for Hull City Council’s assistance in providing us with a temporary test centre in Hull. We continue to be committed to provide car and motorcycle tests in the city and hope to return to the permanent Hull test centre as soon as possible”

Hull City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Energy City, Councillor Martin Mancey, said:

“The Council and the DVSA have been working hard to get driving tests back operating in Hull instead of Beverley and we are happy to have supported them in providing temporary premises.”
