Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Content design

This is a list of what DVSA’s Content Design team worked on during November 2016, and what we plan to do next.

It's divided into lists of new or updated content we've designed and published, existing content we're significantly improving, and what we plan to do during December 2016.

New or updated content

To meet the needs of users, we have:

Improved content

To do a better job of making government work for users, we have:

  • started to review content about becoming an authorised testing facility - these are private premises where DVSA examiners carry out annual vehicle tests on lorries, buses and coaches
  • started work to replace the guide to maintaining roadworthiness and other related guidance with a single guide on keeping lorries, bus and coaches in a roadworthy condition
  • started work to plan moving the MOT testing guide into the GOV.UK manual format, including planning user research to make sure it does make things easier for users

Things we plan to do next

In December 2016 we expect to:

  • work with GDS to publish an improved guide about the compulsory basic training (CBT) course that moped and motorcycle riders need to take
  • publish the CBT syllabus in the GOV.UK manual format
  • work with GDS to make changes to the guide on becoming an LGV driving instructor ready for January 2017
  • work with GDS to update the content about the DVSA taxi driving test, which ends on 31 December 2016
  • improve the service to find a driving test centre so it gives users a better view of driving test availability
