Driving Test Examiners Set To Go On Strike
The DSA's Driving Test Examiners are set to go on strike (yet again) on the 30th of August 2012. The DSA are urging all candidates who have a practical tests booked on the morning of the 30th of August 2012 should attend as usual, despite the potential for strike action by driving test examiners who are members of the Public & Commercail Services Union (PCS).
The DSA’s Chief Executive, Rosemary Thew said:
"Not all examiners are members of the PCS union and even if they are, we can’t be sure that they’ll support the strike. So we’re asking candidates to come for their test as normal so it can go ahead if possible. We’re sorry for the inconvenience this will cause and will do everything we can to minimise disruption for our customers."
Candidates who turn up but can’t take their tests because of strike action will not have to contact the DSA to rebook. They should hear from the agency with a new date within 5 to 10 working days. If candidates fail to attend they won’t be able to claim out-of-pocket expenses if their tests are cancelled and they’ll need to rebook their own tests.
Details about claiming out-of-pocket expenses can be found at http://www.direct.gov.uk/drivingtestexpenses
