Bury Driving Test Centre

Last Christmas the driving test centre in Bury suffered damage from flooding as a result of which it had to be closed. Not surprisingly driving instructors and their pupils were very greatly inconvenienced by this and in the summer I enquired when the Centre was to re-open and I was told it was to be late 2011. With only days left to the end of 2011 I enquired again at the last business questions before the Christmas recess to be told by the Leader of the House of Commons that the re-opening is now anticipated to take place in February. I hope it does now re-open as it will be a great relief to instructors and all those learning to drive as they have had to travel further afield to gain experience of the sort of roads they are likely to face on their driving test.
