good examiner, made conversation and attempted to relax me, although i failed, mainly due to nervousness. There are no toilets which seems crazy considering a driving test is one of the most nerve-wracking experiences. Otherwise a good test centre and good examiner. I hope i pass next time!

omg that women scared my sister too. she is too old to being doing that job and very bitter indeed!! my sister came home crying when barbra examiner tested her she too got shouted at failed too. something has to be done about her abuse. wonder what her pass rate is? now someone else has came forward about her i think we need to speak to someone about her!! and put in a formal complaint.( i think you should have a fee test done again with a different examiner] she is clearly not up for the job. you went to be tested not abused.
