Driving examiner strike: candidates urged to attend tests

Driving test candidates with tests on Friday 31 May should still come for their test despite the threat of strike action by examiners.

Driving examiners who are members of the Public and Commercial Service union are planning to take strike action on Friday 31 May 2013.

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) is doing everything it can to make sure that tests go ahead as planned and urges all candidates to come for their test as usual.

You won’t have to contact DSA to rebook if you can’t take your test because of the strike action. You should hear from the agency with a new date within 5 to 10 working days.

I hope it doesn’t go ahead, I’d really feel for those who get turned away and have to wait for another test

To be honest - the majority of tests will not be affected, although members of the PCS union, most Examiners do turn up for work as normal.


If you do turn up and your test is cancelled, you can claim expenses from DSA
