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.

I recently took my practical driving test at Chorley, and was greeted bitterly by my examiner. (Name removed) showed no patience towards me and constantly huffed and puffed throughout the whole examination. After our initial meeting, I attempted to make some pleasant conversation with (Name removed), and was ignored time after time. Once I had finished my examination, (Name removed) spoke to me as if I was a small child, and told me to very carefully park my car in one of the spaces. After not even 30 seconds (Name removed) turns to me and goes, you have failed your practical exam, and goes to exit the car. After asking why I had failed he stutters as if I wouldn't want to know why I had failed my exam. He then blurts out an explanation that as far as I'm aware, didn't happen. Once out of the car he starts rushing towards the building and was stopped by my instructor asking how I had done. He then turns to me across the car park and shouts, should I tell him, or do you want to do that. I looked at him and said I would like you to explain please. To which he blurts out an answer and rush's into the building. Overall, my experience at Chorley test centre was very disappointing and I hope that the employers there will check who they hire, ensuring that they have a pleasant, and calm attitude.

Hi I am Aryanna, so today I took my driving test with a horrible man called (Name removed at the request of DVSA), what a horrible horrible man he is. Not only did he make me feel uncomfortable on my test but made me pull over on a steep hill in a bath of mud, trying to get the bite the the wheel got stuck in the mud bath and started splattering mud all over my instructors car, which he wasn't very pleased about, who gets someone to pull over in them conditions. Overall I think he was a disgusting man that doesn't want to pass any students he gets, be warned of this man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:(
