The examiners at Upton TC have asked if I can forward this message regarding the car park at Upton, along with a request about not taking photos at the test centre onto all members urgently, the notice is also displayed around the test centre.

 

We would appreciate your cooperation in feeding this back to all instructors, whether they are APDI members or not.

 

It was shared on the APDI WhatsApp group this morning, but not everyone is a member of that group.
