Driving examiner strike: April 2023

In April 2023, some driving examiners who are members of the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union will take strike action as part of a national industrial action over pay, pensions, jobs and redundancy terms. This may affect car driving tests, motorcycle tests, vocational tests (including lorry, bus, coach, and minibus driving tests, as well as tractor or specialist vehicle driving tests), approved driving instructor (ADI) part 2 and part 3 tests, ADI standards checks, and moped and motorcycle compulsory basic training (CBT) checks (excluding the training courses themselves), but not theory tests.

  • Thursday 20 April and Friday 21 April: North-west England and Yorkshire and the Humber
  • Monday 24 April and Tuesday 25 April: East of England, East Midlands, West Midlands and parts of London
  • Thursday 27 and Friday 28 April: London, South-east England, South-west England and Wales Tests at private test providers will not be affected, and a list of affected driving test centres is available on the DVSA website, although tests at other driving test centres in these areas might also be affected without prior notice
