IA/00015/05   06/01/2005   02/02/2005   I would like to know what codex is used to process the video clips used in the test and what level of compression is being used.I would              Information Partially Delivered
              08:35                     also like the source code for the test software.When I took the car theory test I got all the questions right on the first half of the test and
                                        passed the hazard test despite having little idear what was going on in the poor quality video or how the test was marked.Today I took
                                        the HGV theory test, I got all the questions right, they were too easy. When I did the hazard awarness exam I did what I did in the car
                                        test, that is look at a poor quality video with little idear of what was going on. But this time I failed the hazard perception.So I have to ask,
                                        did the test fail in letting me pass the first time or did it fail the second time by failing someone who has already proven themself
                                        compitent?My definition of source_code is the sudo instruction code used by computer programmers to specify a series of instructions,
                                        this takes the form of a text file. Source_code differs from a computer binary file in that a binary file can only be read by a machine where
                                        as source_code can be read by a human or converted into a binary_file by a computer.As the hazard perception videos are part of the
                                        computer program and by any technical definition these videos are pure information, I'd like a copy of them as they're needed to examine
                                        the scoring rules used in the test.
IA/00023/05   06/01/2005   03/02/2005   Would like an interview with an official or an examiner within the next week. Know the pass rate between 17-24 year olds. their views on             All Information Delivered

                                        construed as cheating over a clip that is about a minute long.f)He would also like a full specification of how this mechanism is activated in

IA/00074/05   26/01/2005   18/02/2005   Following correspondence with DSA Equality and Diversity manger regarding statistics requested by the PCS, I am writing to ask you for         Information Not Held
                           10:59        the following information under the Freedom of Information Act. Please provide statistics for the calendar year 2004, broken down
                                        separately by ethnicity (for a) assaulters and b) assaultees) for: 1. Number of verbal assaults on Agency staff.2. Number of physical
                                        assaults on Agency staff. I understand that the Agency captures the ethnicity of test candidates at the Theory Test stage, and should
                                        therefore be able to retrieve this for any given Practical Test candidate (who must have passed the Theory Test); and that the Agency
                                        holds ethnicity details of its staff - it is my assumption therefore that this statistical information should be readily available.

IA/00095/05   02/02/2005   01/03/2005   We have been informed that the DSA has provided a briefing to DVO on DSA's use of its 0870 number for its national driving test                Information Partially Delivered
              11:10                     booking services. Under the Freedom of Information Act, we would like you please to send us a copy of this briefing for DVO on DSA's
                                        0870 number usage.We also understand that DSA has a 'revenue sharing agreement' with its telephone network supplier, Cable and
                                        Wireless, and a rebate per minute is paid back to DSA. Please explain to us in full exactly what 'rebate' ispaid to DSA for each call to
                                        the booking service and how this is calculatedand paid. We understand that the national booking service number (0870 01 01 372) has
                                        been in operation for practical test bookings since 'mid April' 1998 and for theory test bookings since 30 July 1998. We understand that
                                        the number of calls to the booking service annually has varied from 7,532,492 calls in2000 to 21,496,470 calls in 2003. This would have
                                        generated a revenue income of many millions of pounds since mid 1998, if just 2p had been paid back to DSA per minute of call duration
                                        out of the 7-8p per minute charged per call from a land line.Please explain to us why it is that, while there is an alternative 'geographic'
                                        number available for theory test bookings (0161 855 7421), there is not one for practical test bookings. Does the DSA intend toprovide a
                                        lower cost alternative geographic number for practical test bookings? Does the DSA have any plans to convert to a lower tariff 0845
                                        number?Please explain why it is that DSA has never before chosen to admit that it obtains revenue on each incoming call to its booking
                                        service, and so the longer the delay in the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system, the more revenue accrues to DSA! Please explain
                                        where and how such revenue payment figures have been shown in DSA's Annual Reports.A press release from OFCOM on 22 October
                                        2004 pointed out that describing 0870 numbers as 'national rate' numbers was 'misleading' and that it was consulting on new 'guidance
                                        for Government Departments using 0870 numbers'. What was DSA's input to this consultation?

                                        available13a) Are not the minister and his officials at the DSA concerned about the great delay in conducting check tests that ADIs feel is
                                        taking place that they do not have figures at hand?13b) Perhaps you could tell me if there was no backlog in check testing how many
                                        check tests would have to be conducted in a year to maintain the equilibrium?14.The DSA aims to carry out all check test within the
                                        timescales, however these timescales are a guide and not a statutory requirement.15. No. The fee covers the cost of registration15a)
                                        Would you give me a break down as to how my £200 licence fee is used e.g photo licence (green ticket) £5.00 updating computer
                                        records £2.50.15b) Could you also give me a break down of how my Fleet trainer fee is utilised?15c) Would you also inform me as to
                                        how the check test is funded if not from ADIs licence fees? 16. No See above17" 1999/2000 - Number removed - 56"                2000/01-
                                        Number removed - 18"              2001/02 - Number removed - 26"            2002/03 - Number removed - 24"            2003/04 - Number
                                        removed - 2417a) What reason is there for the great drop in ADIs being removed from the register, could this be due to a higher standard
                                        of ADI qualifing, or maybe due to a drop in the number of check tests being conducted to discover the less able ADI?18 ADIs will only be
                                        required to sit the HPT test There will be no charge for the first attempt at the test. The cost for subsequent attempts has yet to be
                                        decided but all ADI's will be informed of this before the test commences.Can I repeat my question is the minister/DSA considering
                                        supplying the HPT test at cost, below cost, or maybe at a higher than cost price and yet again increase the DSA's profits?18a) We now
                                        know the figure has been set at £20.50 the very same figure the general public has to pay for a FULL THEORY TEST, why has the
                                        minister reached the decision to charge a very large premium to ADI who require extra goes as he was confident that all ADIs would
                                        pass first time this can not surely be to pay for our "Free" goes and surely does not represent value for money, one of your aims as
                                        stated on your new website.18b) Can you tell me what the percentage pass rate is for ADIs who have taken the HPT as part of the recent
                                        requirement, Was it as expected very high?18c) How many clips were scored as Zero for clicking inappropriately?18d) Would this be the
                                        same rate as the general public?18e) Did all the ADIs agree that they had been cheating?18f) What was the earliest an ADI clicked for a
                                        hazard before it "developed"?18g) What was the latest an ADI clicked for a hazard after it had "developed"?18h) How many clicks on
                                        average did the ADIs make for a single hazard clip?18i) How many clicks on average did the ADIs make for a double hazard clip? 18j)
                                        Age groups under 30, 30-40, 40-50, 50-60 and over 60s18k) What grades they were, what extra qualifications they had to your
                                        knowledge, Fleet Training, LGV and PCV qualified, obviously would be on your records and easily come to hand (such cross referring I
                                        am sure you have already done) but have you made enquiries as to if they have Adult Teaching Skills, Diploma in Driving Instruction,
                                        Advanced Driving Qualifications, if they are involved in Driver Improvement Training or any other qualification they feel relevant as at
                                        several meeting I have attended the DSA appear to think most ADIs have little or no other qualifications, but at these meeting most of the
                                        ADIs seem to be very highly qualified, but the DSA are unaware of theses facts this would be a perfect time to ask in the form of a
                                        questionnaire how well qualified ADIs are. 18l) Are those failing the HPT (if any) less well qualified, similar or even more qualified, have
                                        the DSA started to make inquiries into why highly trained and regularly tested drivers such as ADIs are failing, or are there plans to
                                        investigate if so how soon and in what form?18m )Has the DSA received any compliments or complaints from ADIs who have recently
                                        taken the test?18n) How many stated they were impressed and learnt from the experience?18o) How many were unhappy and felt that
                                        they had not learnt anything from the experience? 18p) How long are the detailed records of when the ADI clicked in relation to the
                                        scoring window retained? 18q) Paul Butler wrote to us stating that this was an educational experience for us, can you confirm that we
                                        will be able to take notes either with pen and paper, or preferably with tape recorder, to help us to learn from this training event. 18r) I
                                        have seen the new CD Rom "Are you Ready?", can you tell me how much this has cost and how much of the cost was attributable to the
                                        ADI section on the CD Rom?18s) During trialing you told me that a script was used to help improve the scores, please send me a copy of
                                        the script. 19. The test will be the same as HPT element of the ADI part 1 qualifying test.20. One of DSA's key targets is to deliver a 6
                                        week average car practical test waiting time from January 2005. This is an average across the country and is calculated by dividing the
                                        national backlog of tests to be conducted by the national resource available to conduct tests. Therefore some test centres will be lower
                                        than the 6 weeks and some above, but we expect the average to be 6 weeks. 20a) Will this formula take into account the number of
                                        examiners based at a test centre. Thus will a small test centre with one examiner with a waiting list of 1 week, balance a test centre with
                                        maybe six examiners with a waiting list of 11 weeks, or will it need six such test centres to balance the waiting lists?20b) Has the national
                                        waiting list been reduced to six weeks as promised in Despatch, if so is this figure available throughout the entire test centres, if not
                                                                                                     3
                                                                                           Driving Standards Agency
                                                                  Record Receipt Date between 01/01/2005 and 30/07/2010, filter applied
                                        could you supply me a list of the centres that failed to meet this deadline together with number of examiners based at each centre.
                                        21          During the year 2003/04 DSA received 77 reports of illegal instruction22                       All 77 reports were referred to VOSA for
                                        investigation. There are 7 cases where the investigation is still ongoing22a) Where the other seventy reports unfounded, or dropped
                                        because of other reasons? 22b) Could you also give the number of reports region, by region? 22c) I believe that the DSA is required to
                                        fund VOSA to investigate illegal instruction, can you tell how much the DSA has paid VOSA for the last five years, broken down year by
                                        year.23, 24, 25 11 individuals were prosecuted by VOSA for ADI related offences. All were convicted and fined within the Magistrates
                                        guidelines and appropriate fine levels.23a) Could you supply me with all the actual penalties imposed by the magistrates, and what could
                                        have been the maximum Imposed?26 The poster advises customers that we are consulting on these increases and that the consultation
                                        period ends on 24 September.27. The following amounts were received for the last 5 years. They relate to all calls received through the
                                        national number including those for candidates booking a theory test. All amounts have been rounded to the nearest £1000 and are used
                                        to offset the costs of the Call Centres.1999/2000            £199,0002000/2001              £287,00020001/2002               £330,0002002/2003
                                        £443,0002003/2004            £1,127,00027a) Can you confirm that the number of driving tests conducted by the DSA have increased by
                                        500% in the last five years and nearly 300% in the last year, or is there another reason for the drastic increase in monies raised from the
                                        call centres?27b) With more and more internet bookings taking place is this revenue expected to reduce significantly?28. The following
                                        amounts of interest were received in respect of fees received but the test not taken. Data is available for the last four years and relate to
                                        all categories of test. 2000/2001          £1,005,00020001/2002           £708,0002002/2003                    £586,0002003/2004           £613,00028a) I
                                        was actually requesting the amount of interest earned by the DSA whilst holding monies paid to it whilst the candidates were awaiting
                                        tests. If you could tell me how much per week on average this would amount to, and how much money is held for tests of six weeks or
                                        less, and how much money is held for tests due to be taken in excess of six weeks? 29. There is no plan to separate a booking of a test
                                        from the collection of the fee.The reasons are as follows:1) The administration costs of introducing the separate processes of booking a
                                        test and collecting a fee would be high and ultimately result in a fee increases for candidates.2)                   The Agency is committed to
                                        delivery of tests within the 6 week average target and is concentrating resources on recruitment of examiners to deliver this target for
                                        January 2005. It is not therefore the Agency's intention to change business rules to support the missing of key targets.30)I believe the
                                        DSA is conducting "L" tests on Sundays and prior to the normal 08.40 at some test centres is there any evidence that such tests have a
                                        higher pass rate than other tests conducted during the normal working day, and is the DSA likely to continue to offer this service.31)I
                                        note from a recent press release that the DSA are going to offer driving tests during the hours of daylight which I take it means that it may
                                        be possible to book tests between 04.43 a

                                        at the information on the web, I have discovered the following information, can you confirm that this is correct 366 Test Centres listed 2
                                        repeated 364 Test Centres Total 115 No Information Available................................................31.6% 173 Waiting lists (According to the
                                        DSA) six weeks or less...47.5% 76 Waiting list greater than six weeks..................................20.9& With the top three beingNo 3 is Wood
                                        Green with 14 weeks No 2 is Barking with 15 weeks and at No 1 is Winchmore Hill with a great 16 week wait (however I have been told
                                        by ADIs in the area, that the true wait is 26 weeks and many other say that the waiting times quoted are much shorter than they are
                                        offered when trying to book a test, can you comment as to why there should be such a great variance between the two )It would appear
                                        that many of the Test Centres with No Information Available are obviously small seldom used centres but others are not Brighton Bristol

                                        would be very surprised if they were one examiner TCs With so many TC not having information it must be very difficult to be assured
                                        that the target has NEARLY been reached, can you confirm that the many TCs showing six weeks are in fact correct and not 6.1 or
                                        higher waiting lists which would obviously not be reaching your target of six weeks or less, if this is the case could you tell me how many
                                        are effected and when does the DSA expect to reach its target of a true 6 week wait for a driving test. Would you be so kind as to explain
                                        is simple terms how the target of six weeks has been reached using these figures. I also forgot to put on my first e-mail The minister

IA/00204/05   15/02/2005   16/03/2005   You are probably aware of a press article by The Sunday Times stating that Emma Smith had interviewed Robin Cummings of the DSA,                       All Information Delivered
                           10:00        who had given her his personal views over the difference between male and female drivers, which he said was backed up by statistics,
                                        he carried on to state that learners normally passed with under 13 hours for men and under 16 hours for women, which as I am sure you
                                        are well aware is far less than the official line taken by the DSA who‘s own website states that 45 hours plus 22 of private practice give a
                                        greater success rate.http://www.dsa.gov.uk/FAQ.asp?id=SX5B4B-A77FE7C6 Does the DSA have any policy over press interviews, if so
                                        please supply me with a copy, was the policy followed with this interview and if so who oversaw the operation? If not, are there plans to
                                        introduce a written policy as such press comments make life very difficult for the ADI on the ground to ensure their clients are adequately
                                        prepared for the practical driving test and more importantly I am sure you will agree for driving on their own in the real world.I believe the
                                        article has been published by other papers such as The Mail and The Express and it has been ―confirmed‖ by others that the reporters
                                        had been told directly by Mr Cummings of these figures, I note from the ―Home Page‖ from the DSA website that you state Mr Cummings
                                        did not give these figures, will the DSA be contacting the Press Council to investigate how such a grave error was allowed to go to press,
                                        as normally one would respect the articles printed in such an august newspaper as The Sunday Times, as some reports on the web state
                                        even that Mr Cummings did not express his views that men are better drivers than women. I have tried to contact Mr Cummings directly
                                        but as you know he is out of the office until the 21st.

                                        the display of these posters, and what time span was there between the request and the display? I believe the ADI Federation has asked
                                        to display a poster for their industry achievement award but I note that none seem to have been displayed as yet, when is it expected for

              13:11                     to a fatality, and we have not yet received a report on the meeting, we are concerned about a statement apparently made by you
                                        made at the meeting:the overwhelming weight of opinion and pressure was that the public should have access to information. Is the
                                        overwhelming weight of opinion and pressure from the public? Can we view the evidence on which this statement has been based
                                        please? I make this request under the FOI requirements.In recent weeks the minister has made several statements in response to
                                        written enquiries on various topics from MPs, of which DIDU has received copies, and some of these are not only wildly inaccurate and
                                        false, we believe they are irresponsible and offensive to ADIs. Is the minister being briefed by DSA on his responses, or is he carrying

IA/00001/06   03/01/2006   31/01/2006   1) In general, when considering responses to a policy consultation, the relevant officer is looking principally at the strength/validity of the     All Information Delivered

                                        for example, that all the ADI representative groups that expressed a view were strongly opposed to the proposal but most other
                                        respondents were strongly in favour Does the relevant officer regard the responses from those directly involved/affected by any
                                        proposals, (i.e. the ADI organisations) more important, equally important or less important than those with no direct interest? 3) Large
                                        block votes do not hold the sway, as the interest is in the arguments expressed and comments made, regardless of whether they come
                                        from an individual, or an organisation. This is what my original question regarding weighting referred to. Would it therefore be more
                                        advantageous to the profession for each association to instruct their members to respond individually? 4) Can you please explain how
                                        the consultation responses clarified the policy options, and affected the final decision in relation to item 27 in the 'Modernising

                                        was as a result of say dangerous driving then perhaps an extended test is appropriate, but where the driver has previously held a full

                                        2007, in response to a FOI request the DSA stated "The budget guidance, which contains paragraph 4.9 mentioned, has been cascaded
                                        from the Agency‘s Chief Executive to all members of the Executive Board and Heads of Branches. They have been advised that, along

                                        unaware of the fact that they should consult the Treasury Spending team before using consultants in line with Para 4.8 (which I have
