10,860 staff (75.2%) in the Department worked in departmental accommodation, fewer than 5* staff (less than 1%) worked from home and 3582 staff (24.8%) worked from other locations. The staff working from ‘other locations’ are Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) staff working at smaller locations including driving test centres and Goods Vehicle Testing Stations around the country rather than at the main DVSA headquarters.

The data includes the Central department and Executive Agencies and percentages are calculated using figures taken from headcount at the end of January 2018.

It should be noted that these figures are based on agreed location of work from employment contracts.

The Department operates and encourages flexible working and therefore as part of localised non-contractual agreements, more staff may work from home for some of the week however this is not recorded.

*In line with Data Protection requirements, where there are fewer than 5 members of staff, I am unable to disclose further information.
