Driving Test STRIKES! Industrial action to affect driving tests

The PCS union announces strike action in December 2022 and January 2023

DVSA has communicated:

"Today (29 November 2022), the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union has formally served notice that a programme of industrial action involving DVSA members will...

take place over a 6 week period from Tuesday 13 December 2022.

For the latest information on when and how our services will be affected, please visit our dedicated GOV.UK page.

PCS members voted in favour of industrial action during a recent ballot. It’s part of national industrial action by the PCS union over pay, pensions, jobs and redundancy terms".

If you or a pupil have a booking with us on the day of industrial action, you or your pupil do not need to contact us now.

We will get in touch with you and your pupil again with updates before the industrial action.

Other DVSA services during industrial action

"We know that you may have concerns about how this might affect our other services. Not all our staff are union members, and even if they are, they might choose not to go on strike.

The strike action will affect some:

• driving instructor tests and checks • MOT tester demonstration tests • DVSA’s customer service centre • MOTs for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), buses and trailers • vehicle approvals examinations

The strike action will not affect: • theory tests • MOTs for cars, vans and motorcycles

If you have any concerns and wish to speak to us, please do reach out by replying to this email or speaking directly with your instructor.
