I sent my MSVA application off to the local DVSA centre (Leighton Buzzard) over two weeks ago. I have heard nothing. Is the DVSA normally slow to respond?
I asked for a test for the middle of February and, as I am still working for a living, it would be nice to know well in advance what date they are going to give me!

Cheers, Robin

Ring them up. The guys in Norwich were very helpful and obliging.

I did try that initially. But the person that answered the phone (central number?) wouldn't put me through to the test centre until I actually had a test booked! Perhaps I should try again and hope to get someone more helpful....

Cheers, Robin

Robin,
Email VOSA - they have a "respond by" policy timescale (from memory, 3 days). It's not as if the local Centre will be snowed under by applications at this time of the year.

Hi

Seems to me that two weeks is reasonable given the staffing levels and their other workload - I dont think kit car tests is a big part of their workload nor is their work particularly seasonal

The reason for the central number is to let them get on with their work without interruptions

Perhaps wanting a test mid Feb and only applying mid Jan was somewhat optimistic

Regards a local government worker doing 3 people's jobs!
