To make sure driving examiners have enough time dedicated to their training and development, DVSA have announced that from 10 October 2018, they will be changing the testing schedules for driving examiners on one day a week.
The change has been proposed to help DVSA to deliver a better service to customers and provide more opportunities for staff to develop their skills.
How will this affect testing?
To build in this extra time for examiners, you’ll see some small changes to the test times throughout the day.
The training and development time will be on the same day every week. During the rest of the week, examiner schedules will remain unchanged.
DVSA have assured that they will continue to deliver the same amount of tests on the day the development time is scheduled as they currently do.
You should contact your Local Driving Test Manager if you have any questions on the change to schedules.
