Driving test examiners are to strike for two days next week in a row over working hours.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services union will walk out on 19 and 20 November unless talks resolve the dispute.

The union represents 1,600 Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency staff at 360 sites across the UK, including driving examiners and officers who carry out vehicle and traffic safety checks.

The row is over new working patterns, which the PCS says will lead to longer shifts.

Members of the Prospect union at the DVSA, who test heavy goods vehicles and buses, are also striking, for three hours from 8am on 20 November.
