Mr. Diamantis emphasizes that the Examiners are more than a month away from the exam, while they are normally paid because they appear daily in the ministry as they are employed in other services without receiving the extra 178 euro bonus for the exam.
Examiners complain why the new bill provides for a limitation from two to one examiner for each candidate driver examination and at the same time to cut the extra allowance of 178 euros that they receive monthly for the exam.
