Tories could privatise driving tests - and union fears road safety would suffer

Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), the trade union for British civil servants, warns that the government is planning to privatize driving tests. Serwotka said “this is a classic tale of Tory austerity, cutting staff then wondering why there are delays. But worse, they then claim things could be better under a private company whose motive would be profit. We think this would have disastrous consequences for learners and ultimately for road safety.”
