    DVSA to Scrap Assessments and Cut License Waiting Times

    From 31st December 2016 the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will cease to provide local council taxi driving assessments.

    Around 200 council areas around the UK require drivers to first take a DVSA before becoming qualified drivers. The DVSA says that the move to scrap the taxi assessments is a response to concerns about waiting times for learner drivers. In recent years the many learner drivers have been hit with increasingly lengthy waiting times, with some waiting up to four months to take a test.
