Dear Sir (or Madam),
Your reply to the offer sent from this office for an appointment for a driving test has been received, and I regret to note that you intimate your inability to attend, or that the date offered is too late.
This Department at present is experiencing a period of excessive stress, and the number of applications received daily is so large that it is clearly impossible to make arrangement such as would be made under normal conditions.
The date offered to you for an appointment is the only one available during the next several weeks, and I would, therefore, ask your kind indulgence in the difficult conditions under which all sections of the Department are working.
I trust you will kindly accept the appointment offered, but if your reply is not received within [underlined] three [/underlined] days, it will unfortunately be necessary to cancel the offer and make arrangements for another applicant to be accommodated. Please do what you can to help.
[inserted] Regret we are fully booked till June 41. [/inserted]
Yours faithfully,
W. McQUADE.
Supervising Examiner (Driving Tests).
[underlined] NOTE [/underlined]: Please use the form below for your reply.
