DVSA changes reverse parking
Non-DVSA car parks to now be used for test parking manoeuvres
From the DVSA:
From 9 May, DVSA can use non-DVSA car parks for the reverse park into a parking bay manoeuvre if it is assessed on a driving test.
This change is being introduced across all driving test centres following a successful trial in February and March 2022.
The change gives the option for reverse parking to be assessed on all driving tests, not just those taken at driving tests centres with a car park.
This follows on from a successful trial. This took place at 15 driving test centres earlier in the year for car driving tests and ADI Part 2 tests.
The feedback was positive from driving examiners, approved driving instructors and candidates who’s tests were included as part of the trial.
Examiners will use car parks that are currently used for testing the forward park.
Let pupils know
You need to let your pupils know about the change and we will contact all of your pupils who have a test booked in the first four weeks of the change coming in to place.
