Difficult route but if you can drive well, you'll pass. Had a van pull out in front of me and old man walk out in front of the car right at the end but i passed first time with 2 minors. 2 to 3pm seems to be the best times. Examiner was a lovely quiet man called Richard.

Its the worst test centre. Im so ready to pass but ELAINE B is a right awkward B*tch. Git afew minors thats fine bt always fails on last hurdle. 1 on oneway street. I was slightly left turning righ because of a parked car bt she said it was dangerous. Cars behind me couldnt turn left. Come on thats harsh. Cars would wait. Next test failed on massive roundabout i waited afew minutes to go an then she said a car breaked behind me. Get glasses love he let me go. Then she said well you took to long. Cars next to me waited aswel. Cant win. She loves to fail ppl for small things. No1 was in danger. Even my instructor said it was harsh!!! Do not go here! Passed in hyde 3 weeks later

It was so bad. I was nervous already and the examiner kept shouting instructions at me. He was rude and disrespectful it was horrible

Bad atmosphere and rude examiner.

Failed with 1 minor and got a serious for something that should've just been a minor. Examiner wouldn't stop talking and was constantly asking me personal questions which was extremely distracting! Funnily enough the point where i failed i distinctly recall was when he was repeatedly asking me questions and talking. Possibly disputing this cause its ridiculous. I understand some friendly chats but talking so much comes across as a form of trickery in my opinion. And not to mention I've had a foreign licence for 3 years already so just makes it more irritating.
