Allowing NHS ambulance services to carry out driving tests for their staff: response to consultation

13 Oct 2021

The Department for Transport (DfT) in conjunction with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) sought views on the Department’s proposals to:

  • permit NHS ambulance services to engage in delegated driver testing
  • allow the emergency services and Ministry of Defence (MoD) to conduct tests for one another

After taking all views into account the government has decided to introduce this proposal. This will mean that, when the law is changed, delegated testing will be open to NHS ambulance services as will the facility for the emergency services and MoD to engage in cross-testing.
