I have today published the "Response to Consultation"reporting on the results of the consultation on a package of measures which proposed changes to the way in which the Driving Standards Agency conducts its business to deliver a better service and improve the quality of the assessments they offer, and to ensure that the costs of the services provided are recovered in a fair and efficient manner.

The changes are grouped into four areas:

Service improvements

Safety related measures

General fee increases

Driver Certificate of Professional Competence Issues

Copies of the "Response to Consultation"have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses.

The documents are also available from the DSA website: www.dsa.gov.uk or by telephone on 0115 901 5921/minicom 0115 9015922.

Many of the changes will be introduced with effect from 2 April 2007.
