The driving test centre in Dock View Road, Barry was closed back in March last year but it looks to reopen just in time for Christmas.

Students and instructors alike will be pleased with the news as there was widespread opposition when the decision was made to close the centre.

We wrote previously about ‘Driving Test Centres’ Facing The Axe’ and them using private firms as delegated examiners at a variety of locations including supermarket car parks, leisure centres and other venues. This is the proposed plan for the Barry test centre. The DSA (Driving Standards Agency) has negotiated a 12-month licence on the property and intents to have it open under the “Taking Tests to the Customer” scheme.
