SKY News are reporting today that Driving test centres could soon be a thing of a past in the U.K. Leaked documents suggest the Driving Standards Agency is looking at plans to close down test centres and use private firms as "delegated examiners". The new plans could see examiners based at supermarkets and community centres. The Public and Commercial Services union says it has seen leaked documents showing that the DSA is exploring several options to lower its costs. The plans follow moves by the Government to study ways of providing driving tests more efficiently at a lower cost and whether they could be undertaken by other organisations inside or outside of the public sector, said the PCS. General secretary Mark Serwotka said: "These new documents shed more light on the plans being hatched behind closed doors by senior managers and ministers. "Worryingly, it is the latest evidence of the creeping privatisation of the agency's work, which puts ideology before road safety." My own view is that this is yet another mad move by government of privatisation for all the wrong reasons, and it is sure to bring with it all sorts of logistical nightmares if this move is ever implicated. Government is wrong to shred its responsibility in this matter. Bribes, corruption, and offers of sexual favours will become rife in this sector of the motoring world. There would be a lack of "standardisation" and who would police it ??
