Meridian to host practical tests?

PRACTICAL driving tests in Louth could resume once more if a room at the Meridian Leisure Centre is accepted by the Driving Standards Agency.

Coun Pauline Watson said at the Louth Area Committee last Monday (February 28) that a room had been offered by East Lindsey District Council for examiners’ use.

Coun Watson offered to use her councillor grant to pay the rent on the room for a year.

The plan will have to be passed by Under-Secretary of State for Transport, Mike Penning.
