To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what the timeframe is for the resumption of driving tests in (a) rural and (b) urban areas in Scotland.
As different approaches to easing lockdown are currently being adopted across England, Scotland and Wales, the DVSA is following published guidance in each of those countries as it restarts its services safely for customers and staff.
The DVSA will continue to observe the guidance and scale up its services when it is permissible and lawful to do so.
In Scotland, theory tests and motorcycle instruction may restart on 22 July 2020. Motorcycle module 1 and module 2 tests, and tractor driving tests, will restart on Monday 3 August 2020.
Other types of driving tests are still suspended. When the DVSA has more detail, it will inform instructors and candidates.
