Rumours that the test-centre will be moving to a new location have been around for some time but, for the present, we can continue to enjoy this rather quaint, dilapidated building. The waiting room feels like you're in the front room of the house of an elderly relative, who has fallen on hard-times. The car-park is small and the bay-lines faded, so candidates are rarely asked to do manoeuvres at the test-centre. The main hazard is getting into, and out of the car-park. At the start of the test, there is a blind left, round the end of the building, and you must keep to the left, passing between the green gate-posts. Remember to check to the right, going through the gate, as the vet's practice is always busy. Before you get to the road, give way to pedestrians, especially those coming from your left, who are hidden by the hedge, before giving way, again, at the road. Coming back into the test-centre is equally tricky: keep left, as you turn off the road and, again, when going between the green posts, leaving space for cars coming out. Be careful to stay left as you continue around the blind right, into the car-park. from an instructors point of view, it's a short walk to the main shopping area, although there are facilities for making a hot drink, in the waiting room. There is one, unisex toilet. The five-star rating is mainly for the examiners, who are as pleasant as any I've ever come across, and who give particularly good feedback to candidates.

I recently had 2 driving instructors ( one after the other) which I didn't get along well with 1 month before my first test so I made the choice to part ways with them. On my first test I had this examiner called Ian (one of the four examiners on that day), wasn't friendly at all, regretful to shake hands with me before the test and failed me due to a roundabout which I was in the wrong lane. This I accepted because I realised it was a serious issue. However, I went to take my test again this week which has been 2 weeks after my first one and it was Ian again! This time it was out of 5 examiners and somehow I don't think this is luck. Before the test, he had the same attitude as last time so I asked if he remembered me and he said "It could of been me, I can't remember". He failed me because I drove over the centre line of the road when both sides were fully parked with cars and I had no choice. He took me on multiple difficult roundabouts so I think he definitely remembers me and because I failed at roundabouts last time, he decided to take me on 5 consecutive ones. I think there is a conspiracy between my previous driving instructors and Ian as there's no way this is luck. My ex instructors were Tony Kaye and Harvey Wicks. Both situated near West Oxfordshire.
