Mr. Watts: It is for British Rail, including the rolling stock leasing companies, and other train owners to evaluate the needs for renewal.

Letter from L. M. Manley to Mr. Malcolm Bruce, dated 23 February 1995 :
The Secretary of State for Transport has asked me to reply to your questions about the number of driving test centres in Scotland and the number that have been closed in the past 15 years.
I attach a list of the current 30 permanent centres and 66 outstations for "L" tests and 5 permanent and 11 outstations for LGV/PCV tests in Scotland. This includes those centres where we have had to change accommodation in the same area, for example because the lease expired.
With the exception of those centres where the Agency has had had to vacate for the above reasons it has closed centres at Alloa (Central), Arbroath LGV (Tayside), Brechin (Tayside), Cumbrae (Strathclyde), Keith (Grampian), Lochinver (Highland), Rutherglen (Strathclyde), and Turriff (Grampian).
Driving Test Centres in Scotland by region:
