Boylan urges for better access to driving and vehicle tests

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has said the Infrastructure Minister must urgently address the driving and vehicle backlog.

The Newry and Armagh MLA said:

“People are continually frustrated with trying to get vehicle and driving tests across the north.

“Long waiting times for driving tests has totally stressed learner drivers, especially those who may need a car to get to work or get on with daily errands.

“I called for the recruitment of additional examiners to increase testing capacity, and for the Minister to look at working with DVLA to address unfair car tax penalties that have been issued as a result of the vehicle test backlog.

“It’s vital that the Driving and Vehicle test backlog is urgently addressed so people can get proper access to such a basic service.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
