Mantra Learning Limited on Greengate already provides driver training courses and apprenticeships; from Tuesday 27 November it will also host car practical driving tests every Tuesday and Thursday.
Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond said:
It is excellent news that we are going to be offering a more local driving test service for candidates in the Middleton area.
I would like to thank Mantra Learning Ltd for supporting this initiative by providing their premises. This is a great example of how working with private sector partners can help us to deliver a more convenient and cost effective service.
Driving test candidates will have access to Mantra’s waiting area and off road car park.
All driving tests will continue to be conducted by Driving Standards Agency examiners.
