To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many driving test appointments at the Northwich Driving Test Centre have been cancelled in the last 12 months at the request of the Driving Standards Agency or by staff at the centre; and how many of those cancellations have been due to the centre having insufficient examiners to fulfil all the booked appointments.

In the 12 months to 30 June 2011, the Driving Standards Agency has cancelled 389 practical driving tests at Northwich Driving Test Centre, of which 350 were due to driving examiners being unavailable.
