I have just been to the Bury Driving Test Centre open day, it was great to see and have a chat with  the local driving examiners again, a couple who I haven’t seen since December 2010 !!  We were shown around the refurbished test centre and explained what had happened to close it in the first place, it is good to have it  up and running again.

A report in the Bury Times Newspaper dated 16th February 2012 states that the  Driving Standards Agency are now confirming the Bury Test Centre should be re-opened during the month of March.

Lets hope  this is going to be the case after such a long wait ! I will keep you informed with any future news.

I have been in contact again with my local MP Mr Ivan Lewis concerning Bury Test Centre, and I have  received another letter from him to inform me that due to the lack of work of work being carried out at Bury Test Centre, he is now again writing to the Chief Executive of Driving Standards Agency (DSA) asking for an update on the work and a likely completion date. Again many thanks for his effort in this matter, please check again for further news.

The IAM has renewed its call on the Government to make driving on rural A-roads a mandatory part of the driving test.

While I David Heathcote would agree this is a good idea, logistically I don’t think it could work as a lot of Driving test centres are situated in Town centres, as a professional driver trainer I personally include ALL  different types of roads and conditions, including  these rural A roads and explaining how to use  The Limit Point whilst on them, however as I tell my students the L test is just a start to your driving  and would always encourage to take further training and tests as not to get complacent throughout their driving lives, I will be happy to receive any comments from learners drivers from Bury or Bolton on this subject.

The Institute Of Advanced Motorist have reported that winter tyres are becoming more widespread in the UK over the last couple of years, due the harsh winter’s the UK has been experiencing.

These tyres would have been very useful on roads of Bury and Bolton over the last couple of winters, I am considering them myself this year.
