Summarising, which I shall write up and place on the wiki - 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/United_Kingdom_Tagging_Guidelines, 
creating a new section  - DVSA Tagging.

Sources:

Found this link https://www.dft.gov.uk/fyn/practical.php which is s 
search page for Driving Test Centres. Provides addresses and links to 
Google  and OSM maps.

Tagging Guideline:

Node

office=government

operator=DVSA

name=Chorley Driving Test Centre,  recommend a name but many of them do 
not have a sign on the outside, it may be on the DVSA website.

government=transportation

address tags as appropriate,.
