Post office move is welcomed
AN MP has welcomed a decision that means drivers can still apply for driving licences at the post office.
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency has awarded the Post Office a seven-year contract to provide its services at branches.
The move, announced by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin, will also see DVLA-related services offered at post offices expanded to include those currently only offered through DVLA offices directly.
Erewash MP Jessica Lee said the announcement was "great news".
She added: "I have received a large amount of correspondence from constituency on this issue and so I am delighted with the decision.
"Local post offices sit at the heart of community life."
