We will have new opportunities to become a DVSA Driving Examiner coming soon.
Being a Driving Examiner for DVSA
Thank you for visiting our Driving Examiner page, we are delighted you are considering joining us here at the DVSA. We are proud to play a vital role in making Great Britain’s roads amongst the safest in the world.
We look for competent drivers, committed to road safety who also possess customer service and multi-tasking skills needed in a pressurised environment. Driving Examiners have a calm reassuring persona that will help put learner drivers from all backgrounds at ease during the nerve-wracking experience of the driving test.
Your knowledge, skills and judgement will determine if a candidate is ready and safe to take to the road alone.
As Driving Examiners you’ll get to see the smiles and celebrations when you confirm a pass. But you’ll also need a clear, calm manner to explain your decisions and deliver the disappointing news of a failed test.
If you are looking for a new challenge this is a fantastic opportunity to join our team and make a real difference to road safety.
Kelly Swift, Driving Examiner
“I was lucky enough to be part of a great group who really came together to support each other through the ups and downs! We had a mixture of backgrounds and skills, which was an advantage as we brought different strengths and weaknesses.”
Hear from our Driving Examiners
When we recruit, we like to give our candidates support through the recruitment process and to hear more from people in the role. So why not sign up for our Driving Examiner Drop-in Sessions being held in locations across the UK?
If you can’t make one of them, we also offer interactive live Driving Examiner Virtual Events.
In this Virtual Event you’ll get the opportunity to learn more from our current Driving Examiners about the role, how to apply and the many benefits of working for DVSA.
At a Drop-In Session in one of our many UK Driving Test Centres, you’ll get to learn more about the role from one of our current Driving Examiners.
