All private commercial and retail properties that are currently used to deliver driving tests from were subject to health and safety visits by Driving Standards Agency (DSA) health and safety staff. Health and safety checks were also undertaken by the Public and Commercial Services trade union health and safety team before testing commenced.

These sites, and all other DSA premises, are subject to annual safety reviews.
