Driving examiners and vehicle examiners are planning to take strike action at various times on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th November 2015.
The strike has been arranged over continuous disagreements over pay.
Candidates are advised to still attend tests:
DVSA is doing all it can to make sure that driving tests go ahead as planned and recommends all candidates come for their test as usual.
If your pupil’s test is cancelled because of strike action, they won’t have to contact DVSA to rebook their appointment. DVSA will contact them with a new test appointment within 5 to 10 working days.
Your pupil can claim out-of-pocket expenses if their test is cancelled, but they must have turned up for their test in order to make this claim. If they don’t turn up, they’ll have to rebook their own test and they won’t be able to claim expenses.
Theory tests aren’t affected by the strike action and will be taking place as planned.
