DVSA is to launch a reverse parking trial at 15 driving test centres across Great Britain. This will enable the reverse parking manoeuvres on the car driving test and ADI part 2 test to be carried out in non-DVSA car parks.
The trial will start on 1 February 2022 and run for around 6 weeks. This will give driving examiners greater flexibility to conduct reverse parking manoeuvres at the selected locations.
Driving test centres set to take part in the trial are:
Stafford, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Barnsley, Wakefield, Chester, Northwich, Upton, Wallasey, St Helens, Wolverhampton, Gillingham, Bishopbriggs, Gateshead, Durham and Abergavenny.
DVSA will write to you with the next steps in the trial and provide any updates as they become available.
