What does it take to get a pass at this centre?!
I’ve found the examiners truly unfriendly,arrogant,obnoxious,no manners
I went to Chorley because of the high pass rate
My last experience last week,the worst,knowing full well I was nervous,the examiner (who I judge to be the worst one! ) totally played on the fact I was nervy,felt uncomfortable from the off,said I’d make a dangerous fault,made me pull into a safe place and told me he was leaving me there an he’d go collect my instructor,they’d passed in the street an he asked was they with me,responded yes an then said ‘she’s over there’
It has certainly put me off booking another test here,more friendly examiners needed there an DVSA should investigate how unfairly they treat learner drivers

Whilst waiting for my test there was another learner also waiting both of us clearly nervous. 2 examiners come out the first says the other mans name greets him and asks about his day, making some small talk seemed to clear his nerves somewhat. My examiner just says my nams looks at me and says get in the car. No making me comfortable just harsh. Within 2 minutes of my test he askes me to pull up on the left before a car, a place i found somwhat dangerous as you could not see the road ahead and was close to a junction. After doing my checks i start to pull away and i see a van speeding so i break. The van also does this to give way to me allowing me to pull out. As the van stopped i failed even though it is not my fault the van was speeding and the examiner told me to pull over in a dangerous place. After getting back to the test center he was blunt in the way he told me i failed and left.

I was looking on how to complain about the examiner when I came across these reviews . All of which reinforce my complaint about the examiner. As I will be making a formal complaint I don't want to say anymore but there clearly is a problem at Chorley and an examiner

Absolutely great examiner, made me feel very comfortable, passed first time with 2 minors.
