MAG called to give evidence

MAG has yet again been invited to present evidence to the Parliamentary Transport Select Committee.

As part of the DfT’s attempt to scrutinise the work of the Agencies under its control, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and the Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA) are to be the focus of attention later in the year.

MAG’s evidence to the Committee two years ago was instrumental to their findings that the introduction of the current bike test had been botched and that vast amounts of money had been wasted, which in turn led to the creation of the Ministerial Test Review that is ongoing.

Only 2 months ago MAG was again called to present evidence in the Committee’s enquiry into traffic management and how urban congestion can be reduced and follows our very public call that the DSA should be broken up to ensure better, more accountable delivery and quality assurance of a public service.

It is a measure of MAG’s maturity that our opinion is requested and demonstrates how effectively we continue to develop as a campaigning organisation. Thanks to all of you who are making this happen
