Driving examiner strike: December 2017

Some driving examiners are planning to take strike action on 4 December and 5 December 2017, and action short of a strike from 23 November 2017.

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.

You can either:

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

Starting from Thursday 23 November 2017, some driving tests could be affected by driving examiners taking action short of a strike, for example, not working overtime. The PCS union hasn’t given an end date for this action.

Not all driving examiners are union members, and even if they are, they might choose not to take industrial action.

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