The attached table shows the number of driving test centres, which conducted practical car tests that closed in each of the last five years, and the constituencies that were affected.

In all cases where the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency has closed a test centre it has continued to provide a testing service provision to its customers.

30 of the closed test centres were relocated and re-opened at another location within the service standard travel distance criteria.

19 of the closed test centres merged with another test centre.
