The services of Vehicle Examination Centres, driving test services of Driving Test Centres and the Written Test Centre will continue to be suspended in the afternoon.

     Moreover, members of the public with their vehicle examination scheduled for today can apply to the relevant Vehicle Examination Centres for a free rescheduling after the services resume.
