These have now been redrafted and Saturday tests booked from the 7 July onwards will be charged at the intended rate of £67.00 - £10.50 more than tests taken during office hours.The DSA is trying to contact all those effected by the mistakes, but those who think they are entitled to a research can call the Agency direct on 0191 201 4098.

    First Drive
    13 October 2017
