UK based agency replacement provision of Scottish Qualifications Authority

Request asking the provisions made for replacing the Scottish Qualifications Authority should Scotland become independent in 2014.



Freedom of information request asking the current provision of replacing the existing Scottish Qualifications Authority, current provider of the United Kingdom’s ADR Driver Training Scheme in Scotland, with a UK based agency should Scotland receive independence in 2014.

The response confirms that no provision has been made in respect to a replacement service and there are no conditions within ADR that require a contracting party to approve a competent authority from within its own nation state.
