Halfords are going to teach you how to drive

9 January 2013

As of February, learner drivers will be able to take their tests at selected Halfords branches, according to the DSA.

Tests will still be undertaken by DSA examiners, but will start and finish in the car parks of Halfords branches. Handily, if learners completely wreck their cars, they won't have far to go for new mud-flaps and such.

Until now, it was only possible take a driving test at a DSA site, but these changes mean learners will have more choice, which can only be a good thing, especially if Halfords' claim that everyone is only ever 20 miles or less away from a Halfords branch.

The Wellingborough branch of Halfords will be the first to host tests from February 5th.

Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond said: "We are very pleased to be working with Halfords to provide a more local service for driving test candidates. This is a great example of working with private sector partners to provide an important local service that is convenient as well as being cost effective."

    Missed a trick here I think - why not offer Halfords branded driving lessons to go with it?

    That looks like my Dads old Honda Accord...

    Some of the Halfords dirty little scrote customers; shopping for sticky-back-plastic parts for their shitty little Vauxhall Corsa's need some fucking driving lessons.

    This step taken is appreciable. I think this would allow the people to have the selection of the branch of driving test according to their wish. This would definitely work for the persons who have to travel far distant for driving tests. And would surely help to be less exhaustive and relaxed. Driving lessons at Santry are becoming very vital to boost our skills..
