Drive to Bring Driving Tests Back to Holyhead

Since the driving test centre in Holyhead was closed in 2008 after the lease ran out, learner drivers from the area have had to drive up to Bangor to sit their tests.  Some feel that this has been a disadvantage due to addition cost and more importantly taking the test on unfamilar roads.

Since May campaigners led by driving instructor Alan Owen have been busy trying to persuade the DSA to reopen a test centre in the town and have now almost reached 3,000 supporters through Facebook and also received backing from Ieuan Wyn Jones AM and Albert Owen MP.

Now a local learn driver, Jean Collier, has decided to organise a peaceful protest to highlight the problem, calling on learner drivers and driving instructors to lend support, so if you are in the Holyhead area and want to get involved keep an eye out for more information.

Hopefully the new initiative of running driving tests from a range of public venues such as Halfords stores, fire stations and other suitable places will mean that the learner drivers of Holyhead will get their test centre back soon.
