The DVSA have announced today that the test centre at Clifton will close on 25th January 2017. The test centre at Clifton is based within the site of Nottingham Trent University and was originally opened on a trial basis (back in 2013) along with a site on Clarendon Street (also in the grounds of Nottingham Trent University). The centre at Clarendon Street closed down after the trial period but the DVSA have given no reason for the closure of the test centre at Clifton.
Clifton Test Centre only provided tests on Monday and Wednesday and used existing examiners from other Nottingham test centres, so this should simply mean that there will be more tests available at those other centres. However, it does also mean that learners living in NG2, NG7, NG11 and NG12 (for whom Clifton was a convenient option) will have to travel further (for both their lessons and their test).
