LEARNER drivers across the borough will have to wait a bit longer to get their licence after all driving tests have been postponed following the third lockdown.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) announced that driving tests would be suspended until lockdown ends in mid-February.

Theory tests will also be suspended during the lockdown.

A spokesperson for the DVSA said: “All types of driving tests are suspended in England because of the national lockdown.

“The DVSA will contact you if your test is affected and tell you what you need to do.”
