2020.03.23 – Official Announcement from Sefton Council

This, from Sefton Council…

“In light of the way the Covid 19 epidemic is developing and the strengthening of Government advice in relation to social distancing, we will be introducing some new measures to restrict face to face contact, particularly in those areas of business where the risk is highest.

Sefton’s One Stop Shop currently remains open and our focus will be on supporting our most vulnerable residents and those in most need. Consequently we have taken the decision to cancel all appointments for new drivers and all knowledge tests until further notice. All applicants booked in will be contacted personally to explain the situation and will be the first to be accommodated when we are able to relax the social distancing restrictions currently in place.

We will continue to process renewal applications on a drop in basis but the only people that will be seen are those with the following business

• Drivers whose licence is due to lapse within 48 hours from midnight of the day of their visit
• Vehicles where the licence is due to lapse within 48 hours from midnight of the date of their visit
• Those who need to provide evidence that a defect has been remedied
• Those whose licence has expired within the previous two weeks
• Drivers who have completed the process and received an invitation to collect their badge.

I am due to meet with the Manager of the One Stop Shop and Contact Centre tomorrow to explore ways in which we can limit face to face contact further whilst still maintaining a service and I will be back in touch after that meeting detailing any further alterations.

I hope you will appreciate these are extremely difficult times and you will support us in introducing what we believe are sensible precautions to try to slow down the spread of this terrible illness.

Thank you very much for your co-operation

Sefton Council - Environmental Health & Licensing Dept.”
