I had my test there last month and thought the examiner was so unfair, had 3 minors but failed me for not looking in my mirror on a up hill start, even though I did because I rolled back a bit n looked to see if anything was behind me in which there wasn’t, to me this should of been a minor fail or no fail at all has one there was nothing behind me to cause a serious and two not my fault he didn’t see me look in the mirror so disappointed, going try again this month

The examiner was late and the test ran for over and an hour. Worse the examiner forgotten to test me on the manoeuvres so has to do that right at the end when he finally remembers and drove for another extra 5/10 minutes. Also he didn't remember to ask me about the show me question. He failed me for a small and common mistake which I have heard many people have done during their test and have managed to pass. Clearly the examiner head was somewhere else.
