Examiner strike – DVSA statement

DVSA have circulated confirmation of the driving examiners strike action due to take place on the 4th & 5th of December they state:

Some driving examiners who are members of the Public and Commercial Service (PCS) union are planning to take strike action on Monday 4 December and Tuesday 5 December 2017.

The way the car driving test works is changing on Monday 4 December 2017. These changes will still go ahead as planned.

DVSA will be emailing all candidates with a test booked on 4 and 5 December to give them the choice to either:

  • change their test appointment to a later date
  • turn up for their test as planned - but their examiner might be unavailable
