New Consultation - allow NHS ambulance services to conduct their own driving tests

21 Jul 2021

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

Consultation description

In Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland), driving tests are carried out by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). Some organisations are allowed to carry out tests for their own staff. This consultation is seeking views on allowing:

  • NHS ambulance services and foundation trusts to carry out driving tests for their staff
  • emergency services and the Ministry of Defence to carry out driving tests for each other

This consultation is about extending the delegated testing arrangements that are available to police and fire services to NHS ambulance services and foundation trusts. It is also about allowing the services to conduct driving tests for one another, which we call ‘cross-testing’.
