Detail

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) is to close the driving test centre at Purfleet and open a new one in West Thurrock. This is as a result of the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) closing their Purfleet testing facility where DSA are currently based.

DSA considers that driving test candidates and staff won’t have any significant or detrimental impact on their journeys to the centre, or on its driving test routes.

The new centre is due to open on 1 April 2013 and is easily accessible via the network of main roads in the area. It’s located 5.7 miles away from the original centre.
