Your insurance must cover, for the time the Examiner is driving, any liability which the Examiner may have for all third party and damage risks, and for liability to any passenger, including an official passenger.
You will not be able to obtain the name of your Supervising Examiner because we cannot guarantee that a particular Examiner will conduct the test.
You can however advise your insurers that all examiners are over 21 years and that they are trained to a very high standard. DVTA is aware that insurance companies may request certain details of examiners.
It is the Agency’s policy for data protection and security reasons not to disclose personal information about examiners. The examiner will provide you with his name on the morning of the test, but he will not provide details of age, address etc.
Candidates who agree to attend tests with the expectation that extra information will be obtained on the day will be disappointed and will lose their test fee if the test cannot proceed.
We cannot accept responsibility for risks not covered by insurance, including the loss of any no-claims bonus or the cost of repairing any minor damage. If either the car itself or the insurance does not meet with these requirements, the test will not be allowed to continue.
