Nearly 20 driving tests were cancelled at centres in Aberdeen today because of bad weather.
A total of 15 exams at Aberdeen North and three at Aberdeen South were called off by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) after it was judged conditions were too poor
DVSA acting operations director Peter Hearn said: “DVSA will conduct more than 1.8 million car practical driving tests this year and only a small number of these are cancelled by the agency.
“We recognise that short notice cancellations are very disappointing for our customers and work to ensure that tests can go ahead wherever possible.
“However, we can’t conduct tests in dangerous weather conditions as we have to consider the safety of candidates and staff.
“If candidates have concerns about weather conditions on the day of their test, they should follow the advice on their appointment confirmation.”
Temperatures were at there lowest at around 7am, plummeting to -5.6C.
The Met Office described it as a “cold frosty morning with fog slow to clear the glens”.
Anyone who was affected by the cancellations will have their exams rescheduled for no charge.
