Southend Test Centre Announcement

This was sent to us from the test centre today 15/10/20

Morning All, 
As you’re all probably aware, from next Monday, 19th October we will be reverting to our old test times carrying out six tests each per day. We are still following our Covid-safe procedures, so this may lead to tests running late. We will of course do our best to get to your pupils on time, but on occasions delays may be unavoidable.
At all times when waiting for a test, please remain with the vehicle and ensure it is well ventilated by opening doors and/or windows in readiness for the test to begin. With the recent lower temperatures we’ve had several cases recently of candidates and instructors waiting in the cars with all doors and windows closed until the examiner arrives. In such cases our procedures require us to ventilate the car for at least five minutes prior to starting the test, which adds further delays. 
Your co-operation is greatly appreciated. 
Kind regards, 

Mark Christmas | Driving Examiner
