I was driving with the examiner and my instructor in the car everything was fine until I reached to the A14 Newmarket slip road where I drove up at 50 mph I looked through the blind spot and saw both lanes used and an car is overtaking a lorry on the right lane at around 60-70 mph. I decided to slow down to let them pass first and join behind them. Then the examiner for no for saken reason took my steering wheel and told me to add speed up and over take the car and lorry on both lane. When it is clearly dangerous to do when I am on a slip road and trying to overtake on coming traffic on main road. The cars on both lanes was about 2 seconds behind me, i also haven’t signalled out of slip road so I don’t know what the examiner thinks you can actually go on to the dual carriageway safely when both lanes are taken and very close to pass me, it would be much safer to slow down and join in when they get passed. There was no cars behind me or the two lanes only there was two vehicles on the both lanes. Even my instructor said that it was very dangerous and unsafe to do that and should not do that to the examiner but the examiner said “Well you have no right to judge me, and just for that your student has failed.” I failed the first exam at bury st Edmunds with this old man examiner who took my wheel and told me to speed up into a dual carriageway where both lanes are used, I was put to danger due to this bad examiner. My instructors car has a camera but unfortunately it cannot take videos inside, so if we were to complain him to court I think we would barely win. Any ways I took my second time 10 days later at Ipswich and passed with no errors and the examiner was polite and doesn’t take your steering wheel and place you into danger.
If this review helps you then remember to tell others to beware the old man examiner at bury st Edmunds, take the exam somewhere else or avoid the old man he was also rude as well wasn’t very DVLA professional as some people call it. This is just my case but may not be everyone else’s, they may not have occurred to the same problem as me.
Thank you for reading
I had my driving test yesterday and my examiner was super friendly. I was really full of test nerves and my glasses kept steaming up on the day. Andrew B spent some time giving me advice on how to stop the steaming up and this really put me at ease. If you train hard and don't drive badly you will pass!
Don't do your test here unless you know Bury St Edmunds well! Did my test during rush hour, and examiner criticised me for going the incorrect way, despite the DVLA stating that this isn't going to affect the test results! Examiner was incredibly rude and blunt, and it was clear from the minute I pulled out of the test centre to start my test he already wanted me to fail. He had no manners or etiquette and given other test centres with better passing rates (and less vile examiners) aren't too far, would 100% recommend choosing to go there instead.
