The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union has announced that its members will take part in further discontinuous strike action on:

  • 15, 16 and 19 June in London, south-east England, south-west England and Wales
  • 22 and 23 June in North-east England, north-west England, Yorkshire and the Humber, the East Midlands, West Midlands, East of England, and parts of London

DVSA has been informed that the Cabinet Office has made an offer of a settlement and the PCS national executive committee is considering its response. DVSA continues to monitor progress in this matter as negotiations continue.

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

We do not expect this action by PCS to affect our heavy vehicle annual test (MOT) service, 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 an annual test (MOT) booked during the strike period

Please continue to attend your annual test booking(s) during the strike period as planned.

If a test does not go ahead as a result of strike action, you will need to book another appointment with an Authorised Testing Facility (ATF).

Customer service centre

Our customer service centre might be affected by the strike action, and it may take longer than usual to answer your query. The customer service centre will be open from 8am to 4pm on 15, 16, 19, 22 and 23 June.
