The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union has announced that its members will take part in discontinuous strike action during March.

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 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.

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 Wednesday 15 March 2023.
