Failed my test today, I had Jeff who was all around a good examiner - the only flaw for him was late instructions. I was at a roundabout needing to go right but as he gave the instruction late there was no time to change lanes and it was busy so I went left. I had to turn the car around as it was a dead end and that really threw me off. I’ve not done a 3 point turn before so I was really confused, Jeff made conversation though and was professional

Not happy, was preparing to go at a round about take note I said prepare not go, and the silly geezer used his breaks because he thought I was gonna go when I wasn’t, clearly needs his glasses checked and I clearly wasn’t gonna go. But if it meant he got a earlier lunch break then so be it. Thanks for failing me 2 minutes in mate appreciate it xx👍🏻 hope your bacon roll was nice xx

me and my friend had lorraine as an examiner and she is not good at her job. she is meant to be helping people to pass their test instead of setting them up to fail. she huffs and puff throughout and makes rude comments towards you. it’s understandable that people have bad days but when your are trying to monitor someone’s driving you shouldn’t be making them feel bad about themselves when clearly that will make them drive worse. if she wants to be in this line of work she needs to sort it out and start doing her job properly like the other examiners. because failing people on their test when she’s the one who’s caused it to happen is not right.

Why do people blame examiners for their own failings? If you are not ready then you will not pass! You all slate people that are doing their job and assessing what you do, if you are shite you will not pass! Stop blaming other people, have a good long look at yourself!!!
