New role for driving examiners

15.24 | 9 April 2009 |

Driving examiners at Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge driving test centres are taking on new roles by opening their doors to taxi testing.

Taxi drivers wanting to work in the area covered by St Edmundsbury Borough Council are now being assessed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) before being given a licence to drive a cab. More than 120 councils throughout Britain have already agreed to take taxi testing on board.

Hilary Workman, licensing services manager for St Edmundsbury, said: “The opportunity to participate in the DSA Taxi and Private Hire Car Driver Assessment Scheme is an excellent way to ensure drivers licensed by the council are of a consistently high standard.”
