DVSA Update on industrial action

7 Dec 2022

The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union has announced that its members will take part in discontinuous strike action during December 2022 and January 2023

PCS has told DVSA the strike action will affect driving examiners and some vehicle and traffic examiners.

We do not expect this action to affect vehicle approval examinations, but we will not know for certain until strike action takes place.

Not all DVSA staff are PCS members and, even if they are, they might choose not to go on strike.

If you have a vehicle approval appointment booked during the strike period

Please continue to attend your booking as planned.

If your approval examination does not go ahead as a result of strike action, DVSA will automatically rebook the appointment. You do not need to contact DVSA.

Keeping checking for updates

You can find the latest information about how DVSA services are affected on our dedicated GOV.UK page. Please also keep checking your emails.
