David Hanson said:
“I have now received written confirmation from the Driving Standards Agency that the Mold Driving Test Centre is to close in March 2010.
“I remain very concerned that the closure of the centre will mean people having to travel outside the County bringing with it with it extra expense and inconvenience for drivers.
“Local people, myself included, believe there is a strong case for the retention of the driving centre. Closure will leave Flintshire without a driving centre and would have a negative impact on users of the service, including aspiring drivers, driving test companies, the staff at Mold and the local economy.
“I have written to the Driving Standards Agency, pressing for a consultation so that local people can have their say and for the proposed closure to be delayed pending consultation.”
