Strike action puts brakes on driving tests

Thousands
of driving tests across the UK had to be cancelled yesterday because of a
24-hour strike by examiners.

Around
1,000 driving test examiners form the PCS union went on strike yesterday
forcing the cancellation of around 5,000 tests.

The
Driving Standards Agency examiners walked out amid claims that staff doing the
same job at the Department for Transport earned more money.

They
joined thousands of civil servants in the sector’s worst day for industrial
action in more than a decade.
