If you hail from the lush plains, mountainous terrain, and urban niches of England or Scotland and you’re gunning to get your motorcycle license, you might want to check your date; from what we’ve heard, there are about to be a slew of tests rescheduled due to a Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union strike.
Coverage from MCN states that the strikes will be happening on the following dates, with locations reflected below:
April 17 – north-east England and Scotland
April 18 – north-east England and Scotland
April 20 – north-west and Yorkshire
April 21 – north-west and Yorkshire
April 24 – east and west midlands and parts of London
April 25 – east and west midlands and parts of London
April 27 – south-east and south-west England and Wales
April 28 – south-east and south-west England and Wales
Despite the above list, The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) recommends you attend your usual date, “even if it’s on the date of strike action, unless they contact you and tell you otherwise;” should there be a need to rebook, the date will automatically be moved to a better time.
