Updated Listing Of MOT Testing Centres

Gareth Oakley made this Freedom of Information request to Vehicle and Operator Services Agency

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

This FOI request is further to the following previous request:

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/li...

Thank you for your previous prompt response - it's good to see a goverment agency making the effort to reply to people quickly!

The data you provided has been very useful, but it'd be even more useful if phone numbers were available for testing stations. I know VOSA have this data available, since it's already displayed through your online MOT history service. Therefore I'd like to request an up to date listing of testing centres with phone numbers in spreadsheet format (Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc etc).

Could I also suggest publishing this data on your website regularly? It appears from the name of the file you sent me last that you regenerate the list of testing centres on a monthly basis - having it available on your FOI pages would be really useful (Good on you for publishing your responses there in any case!)

Thank you,

Gareth Oakley

Dear Sir or Madam,

I previously wrote to you on the 4th January requesting an up to date list of MOT centres (along with phone numbers). By law under the Freedom of Information Act you should have replied no later than the 2nd February, but you have yet to do so and have not asked for further time to submit a response.

Please could you tell me when you are likely to have a response, or if you are turning down the request the grounds which it has been denied on.

Yours sincerely,

Gareth Oakley

Just spoke with VOSA by phone - they can't find any record of this request. Not sure if WhatDoTheyKnow has mangled the email in such a way that they can't receive it.

On the basis of this I'd like to withdraw the request for an internal review.

Sent request to Vehicle and Operator Services Agency again.

Sent request to Vehicle and Operator Services Agency again, using a new contact address.
