THE DRIVING TEST IN Burgess Hill
Burgess Hill Driving Test Centre is situated on the outskirts of a busy town. Both busy urban roads and rural roads often feature on the test routes. Rural roads are challenging and are likely on the test (see country road driving). These roads may be high speed, narrow and have sharp bends.
Other hazardous conditions are roundabouts, junctions and crossroads. Primary route ‘A’ roads will feature on the driving test including the A273 and A2300. These high speed roads require a good understanding of approaching traffic speed before joining.

I agreed with asian people that said the examiner doesn’t like asian people. I can feel it! I FAILED 3 times!! The first test I had it with (Name removed at request) who was nice lady and judged me fair enough. The second time I had the test with L...a who asked me Could I read the signs??! She was so rude and told me that should get lessons before the test! And the last time I had the test with J..n who wasn’t fair enough for judging me! Let me down by asking me to pull away on straight road with car was far away from my car behind! Then asked me to STOP it!! And gave me serious fail!! He told me that car was too close to me and when finished test gave me 12 minor faults on gear, cluth, break and accelerator!!! What? When?? I totally agreed with anyone who said they don’t like asian people! If I live close to other centre test, I would not get driving test here! Not fair enough and Inequality!
Had (Name removed at request) on my first test, found her rather rude and abrupt. At one point I simply asked her what direction I would be going in at the upcoming roundabout, as she hadn't said anything to me, to which she replied "as I said at the start, if I don't say anything then assume you're going straight ahead". Well there really is no need for the sass, especially as things said at the start are easily forgotten by nervous drivers. I was failed because the 30 mph sign was covered by trees so was doing about 35 mph as I was unsure. My instructor and I then did the same route and he agreed that she should have told me the speed limit if the sign is obstructed. Passed second time with Hannah who was absolutely lovely and made me feel very comfortable and at ease during my test.
To whom it may concern I am writing this review as I would like to complain about the examiner I was assigned as I feel they have acted inappropriately / unprofessional etc As a result of this I had to cancel my test after 5 minutes in due to the examiners attitude. At first I found that he wasn't very welcoming and he made me feel uncomfortable from the second I got into the car. I appreciate that his job is not to make me feel welcome but I also don't think that examiners are meant to act in a way that unnerves students deliberately. The first question he asked me was tell me how you would check the tyres have sufficient tread depth and are is safe condition? I responded they should be no cuts anywhere in the tread and a minimum of 1.6 m.m of tread depth. (This is the textbook answer). He responded by asking what else you might look for and I said I might look at the condition of the tire as well and make sure it's not flat. Following this he asked yet again what else might you look for. At this point I started to lose confidence as I am not sure considering I had given what I think are two acceptable answers and I had been previously informed by my instructor that my first answer was usually sufficient. I said I might check if the tyres are damaged, and at this point the examiner started to shake his head implying he is not happy with the answer. I felt that this was extremely unprofessional as if he was not happy with the answer giving a minor would have been sufficient without deliberately acting in an intimidating fashion. After this he spent 3-5 minutes trying to get the sat nav to work and then when I started to drive he asked me to go into the car park and drive into a bay although I felt the way he delivered this was not professional as I felt he was shouting at me and not talking or simply requesting manoeuvres. I drove into the bay and told him that I did not wish to continue with the test as I felt that he had an unprofessional attitude. I was also unhappy when the examiner would not give me his name when I asked as he stated that he had provided it at the beginning of the test. I then found out that his name was Nathan (was this after the test?) I am now in the process of an official complain Through DVSA customer service centre
Really disappointed with my examiner. I had Sandra who from the reviews above I was nervous about having. Sandra grabbed the wheel when it definitely wasn't necessary. It seems to be a trend that Sandra is known for not making people feel relaxed and is quite rude. As a 19 year old girl I don't feel like I have any confidence now and generally agree with the majority that Sandra shouldn't be an examiner.
Would seriously recommend avoiding this place, for several reasons. 1) Whilst i was there every examiner was late to their appointment with fellow learners, Now you could say "oh well you've got to respect that sometimes it maybe delayed" but I and the fellow learners where at or around 9am. So i'm already sensing the mentality of these people and that they don't give a toss as long as they get paid at the end of the day. 2) Not sure what it is about this place but they clearly love to feel in-control and grab the steering wheel is places where it clearly isn't necessary. In my instance, two cars had parked opposite each other, so i slowed right down to a crawl and then to a full stop leaving enough space for me to see the car that had parked up tyres and tarmac, so around a cars length. Thankfully another very kind driver stopped to let me through. I prepare to move off and get my hands in the correct position to safely move round the parked car. I pulled the wheel right with my right hand and just as i'm beginning to crawl forward and just before i could push the wheel a full rotation right, he yanks the steering wheel round and shouted that i was way to close. I knew for a fact that there was space and it was completely unnecessary for him to do this. 3) It seemed like he wanted to put us in danger, as i patiently waited for a gap to appear when exiting a junction he was say "you've could have gone then" or "go now". I would like to say it was a one off but unfortunately it was almost every junction. So from my experience, stay well away from this place and opt for somewhere such as lancing and make sure you get a dashcam because i'm sure if he saw the footage from it he could see I was nowhere near the parked car.
