Government launches motoring services consultation

Peugeot drivers may be among those who take up the government's offer to have their say on the future of major motoring issues, such as the delivery of driving tests and vehicle licensing.

The Department for Transport is proposing to reform the four motoring services agencies -  the Driving Standards Agency, Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, Vehicle and Operator Services Agency and the Vehicle Certification Agency.

It may include "rationalising" services so that fewer bodies are involved, while there is also a proposal to "bring the driving test closer to the customer by exploring opportunities to improve convenience to customers", while maintaining the "integrity" of the practical Test.

Drivers are invited to go online and provide their own submissions up until March 7th 2013.

The government has already produced plans to deal with another issue of concern to drivers - frivolous whiplash claims.

It recently proposed measures to curb such attempts to gain compensation, which can add to insurance premiums for honest drivers.ADNFCR-2576-ID-801506578-ADNFCR
