Please ignore all these negative reviews. I was very scared when I read all the bad reviews. I had Kamil as my examiner and I found him to be very professional and made me feel relaxed and calm. I would strongly say if you know how to drive you will pass.
I had my driving test this morning at 8.10 a.m in Barking Tanner Street. My examiner is KAMIL. He is an inappropriate person to be as an examiner. He failed me today and said the reason is I was nearly touching the Kerb and it is a serious fault. Nothing happened like that. If it is a serious fault he would have touched the steering or apply the brake but he hasn't done anything till the exam finished. I can proudly say that I was very confident and calm during my exam. My husband was sitting in the back of the car. Until the final moment, we both thought that I was going to pass my test. My driving instructor also said after I come back from the test that when he saw that KAMIL was my examiner he thought I might get failed. Because he knew from the other occasions that KAMIL is scared to give license to the learners. I hope the Exam board will reconsider this person. He is playing in others life and wasting their time and money. I don't want anyone to have KAMIL as their examiner. He is unprofessional.
THE DRIVING EXAMINER WAS SO NICE ,I DIDNT EVEN DO ANY MINOR FAULT BUT HE GAVE ME FAIL BECAUSE I WAS WAITING IN MINI ROUNDABOUT BIT LONG FOR EXTRA SAFE...HE GAVE ME ONE SERIOUS MISTAKES FOR HESITATION.IF HE WANT HE COULD GAVE ME PASS....I AM UPSET BECAUSE EXAMINER ALWAYS SEE HOW SAFE YOU ARE ...BUT IS THAT SERIOUS MISTAKES FOR EXTRA CARE?SOMETIME THEY TAKES THEIR OWN DECISION ..I THINK RIGHT TO APPEAL SHOULD INCLUDE SO EVERYONE CAN GET ORIGINAL DECISION.
I passed the second time with Michael. I failed at town quay. To be honest, if you're a good driver you shouldn't panic at all! they're not here to purposely fail you. make sure you're familiar with the potential routes ( your instructor should tell you) Micheal was professional and helpful. Couldn't ask for better exerpence I used my own car as well, ( PLEASE PREPARED IF YOU ARE GOING TO USE YOUR OWN CAR, EXTENDED MIRRORS IS REQUIRED AND L PLATES).
I urge everyone to avoid this test centre at all costs, If I could I would give this test centre 0 ratings I would, I was very unlucky to have KAMIL as my examiner on both occasions and he is extremely inconsiderate and unnecessarily strict and I believe even if you drive well on the day he will still fail you. On my first attempt I only had 3 minors and he marked me for a major that wasn't serious. When I found out that I had him again for my second attempt I was very nervous which showed throughout my drive on the day and resulted in him failing me once again.
