ON MONDAY the DVA re-opened its online booking system for ‘priority’
driving tests after a four week lockdown forced local driving
instructors to be out of work, with all lessons and tests put on hold
for a second time this year.
Despite the welcomed news, Fermanagh folk are now concerned over the
impact Stormont’s four week circuit breaker could have on the current
backlog of driving tests.
Fears surfaced after the DVA suggested that for those wanting to book a
practical test to look at availability across the full network of test
centres, as ‘slots may not be available at the test centre of your choice’.
A statement issued by the DVA to those who have been given ‘priority’
stated, “The DVA is re-opening the online booking system for some
“For a period of one week only, starting at 8am on Monday 9 November,
this will be available exclusively for customers who have met the
‘critical worker’ criteria and whose test was cancelled between March
and June 2020, and for anyone whose test has been cancelled more than once.”
In their latest update the DVA contacted those who had been “authorised”
to book early, with exclusive access to the online booking system for
one week only.”
