Callander Driving Centre is set to close next month (May 23rd), with all tests moved to the Stirling Centre. The DVSA have said the reason for this is the increase in rental price charged by McLaren Leisure. However this increase is tiny: amounting to £100 per year.
Many who take the test in Callander will live in the north of the Trossachs, meaning this will have a serious impact on many budding drivers.
I'm supporting this petition to keep it open, and i've written to the DVSA to ask them to overturn this decision. I've also contacted McLaren Leisure to ask what the facts are regarding room costs. The small increase reported is reasonable and cannot seriously be used as a justification for closing the Centre.
