NIAIC (Northern Ireland Approved Instructors Council) have asked for urgent clarification from the DVA on driving tests following the update from the NI Executive this morning. If we hear anything back, we will update the local and national associations for instructors and provide relevant info on https://www.niaic.com and, where possible, post on social media.
If you are not a member of a local or national association, it’s times like these where our voices need heard the most. Info on associations affiliated with the stakeholder council can be found at https://www.niaic.com/team
Stay Safe Folks.
UPDATE @ 13:06:
Claire Devlin, Registrar, confirmed that the DVA have received no communication from the executive about changes to driving tests. Therefore, for the time being at least, tests will continue as normal.
UPDATE @ 21.30
BBC News have confirmed that driving tests will be allowed to resume. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-54533643
