Trialling reverse parking manoeuvre in non DVSA car parks

DVSA is to launch a reverse parking trial at 15 driving test centres across Great Britain.

This will enable the reverse parking manoeuvres on the car driving test and ADI part 2 test to be carried out in non-DVSA car parks.

The trial will start on 1 February 2022 and run for around 6 weeks. This will give our driving examiners greater flexibility to conduct reverse parking manoeuvres at the selected locations.

Driving test centres set to take part in the trial are:

Stafford, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Barnsley, Wakefield, Chester, Northwich, Upton, Wallasey, St Helens, Wolverhampton, Gillingham, Bishopbriggs, Gateshead, Durham and Abergavenny.

The DVSA will write to us with the next steps in the trial and we will provide any updates as they become available.

It’s been far too long since our last conference, and a challenging two years in between. So it’s time to regroup and get back on track, as an industry and as individual businesses. And what better venue than overlooking the iconic racetrack at Brands Hatch!
