If you are thinking about taking a test in this god awful place and happen to suffer with anxiety or just tend to get nervous DO NOT TAKE A TEST HERE!!
I have had 3 unsuccessful attempts at bishops Stortford , the thought of going back there makes me feel physically sick.
My first test I was extremely unlucky and was landed with Jo. She has an awful reputation that certainly exceeded my expectations. Even my driving instructor looked at me when she came in the room with a nervous face.
I got in the car and was very nervous given it was my first test - the first sentence she spoke to me she snapped and made me feel stupid, this was within the first 5 minutes.
Every time she spoke with me to give me an instruction she was rude and spoke down to me as if I was something she had found on the bottom of her shoe.
At one point nearing the end of the test she asked me ‘what would you normally be doing today?’ I replied with ‘I would be at work , I took a day of annual leave’ I was met with a rude and blunt reply of ‘ what - you took a whole day off to do a test?’
The whole time I was in the car i felt nervous and anxious and on edge with this horrible woman - this then left me with a fear of the place.
The second test was with Paul - he was much much politer than Jo (although I think Piers Morgan is politer than Jo).
The third attempt was a lady called Lorraine I believe from Brentwood. Again she was much politer than Jo . She spoke down to me and was also not very friendly. She made me feel on edge the whole test.
Whilst I understand these people are here to do a job - there is no need to be so rude and just plain nasty to people!! They do not know what that person doing the test is going through! They do not know how being spoken to in this manner will effect that individual!
I have moved my test to Loughton centre as I cannot go near the place - the thought of potentially having to spend 45 minutes with such a vile woman is enough to have me in tears.
I hope that power trip being so horrible gives her is worth something!
I feel so sorry for any person that has to spend any time in her company.
Jo made my daughter uncomfortable from word go . She also screamed at my daughters friend on her test . Im looking into making a formal complaint against this lad . I spike directly to her informing her of this and she was very smug . She so obviously knows what she is doing
People have a job to do, i understand that and a fail was the correct decision BUT a little empathy goes a long way. If a a chd becomes tearful dont bittle them and make them feel worse. # be kind# nadty commenys can have a great affect on a persons memtal health. Jo the tester this is for you
Joanna made me feel uncomfortable and was a very cold woman. Went to do my manourvere and when I was positioning to do it correctly as I was told we were allowed to do she said “what are you doing there’s no reversing at this point” like I was some sort of idiot. After checking no one was behind me I rolled back to let someone into a drive way however she breaked for me meaning an automatic fail. I started to get upset and apologised for crying to which she responded, “well that’s not helping you at this point I’m afraid” and then said she felt “uncomfortable” with a driver that was sobbing even though I was driving perfectly safely and had apologised. Obviously doesn’t have a care in the world for anyone but herself and she thinks she has so much power. At the end of my test she told me I had stopped in a bus stop which I wasn’t supposed to do but she had told me to stop there. This woman should not have this job if she doesn’t like kids or even people. If I have her again I know I will start to panic as she is rude and a horrible woman. I may probably refuse to do the test if I have her.
Such a rude examiners (Paul and the lady examiner), smoked Lady examiner failed me for going slowly behind a cyclist, for me there was no room to over take the cyclist in a safe way as there was continuous oncoming traffic, Is that a serious mistake ? We all should have camera inside the car and dash cam so that we can appeal their decisions. So frustrating ..They have no interest in what they are doing ..Money making shits..
