NICE CENTRE TO TAKE YOUR TEST.
THANKS TO YOUR THE EXAMINER ESPECIALLY EVA.
I took my second driving test today at Bromley test centre and passed I would recommend this centre to anyone thank you
I am writing to you regarding the unfairness of my Driving test occurred on 25 of February 2020 in in Bromley (London). The examiner examined me unsuccessful on Category B (Progress – Appropriate speed). After finishing the test, the examiner stated that I drove 20 mph whereas it was 30 mph and 10 mph whereas it was 20.
I am completely disagreeing with the result of the examiner. I believe either examiner is not familiar with the ‘’Guidance for driving examiners carrying out the practical and extended driving tests for cars’’ or he did not follow the guidance or worked negligently or decided without following the guidance.
My driving test was started on 3.15 pm, and most of school’s children came out from the schools at this time. It is very common that all the drivers must be careful at this time. Advisory speed limits are often being used in particularly sensitive areas, such as outside schools, where it is considered that a reduction in speed would benefit the immediate community. It is also encouraged to drive at a lower speed. Moreover, Safety should not be compromised even in good fields of vision or in low pedestrian activities. However, most of the road, the examiner asked me to follow was especially narrow residential streets. As a result, I had to reduce my speed considerably lower than the advisory limit. As if someone is hit at 30 mph, they are five times more likely to die than if they are hit at 20 mph. travelling safe on the road is more important than travelling the maximum seed limit on the road.
Though I was not a source of danger to myself or to other road users, the examiner decided wrongly for my safe driving. As a result, he failed to follow the rule 1.56 of ‘’Guidance for driving examiners carrying out the practical and extended driving tests for cars (’Guidance for driving examiners)’’.
Secondly, Examiners should remember that, in most cases, candidates will be novices and will have had only limited driving experience and will have been accompanied by a professional instructor or other tutor. It would therefore be unreasonable to expect them to demonstrate the degree of skill and road sense of a seasoned driver. As I am new driver and I was driving slowly and safely, the examiner assessed me unreasonably. As a result, he breached the rule 1.04. of ’Guidance for driving examiners.
Thirdly, it must also be appreciated that many candidates will also be more nervous during the driving test than when driving with their instructor or with a friend.
Fourthly, when I was in the waiting room, the examiner was not nice with me. With due respect I asked him if I can get a glass of water, he replied that there is no water in this room. And he looked at me very seriously. As a result, I became very nervous thinking of I made a big mistake. Surely it was not a pleasant approach. As a result, he breached the rule 1.04 of ’Guidance for driving examiners.
Fifthly, though my safe and slow driving was not potentially dangerous or dangerous to the examiner, candidate or other road users. But still the examiner was too hasty in making a definitive assessment and marking the fault. As a result, he negligently failed to follow the rule 1.08 of ’Guidance for driving examiners.
Sixthly, Examiners did not take the opportunity on the way to the car or before moving off, to briefly explain to me what will happen on the test. So that I was on doubt what is required in the independent driving section of the test. So that he did not follow the rule 1.18 stated in ‘’Guidance for driving examiners.
Seventhly, According to rule 1.45 ’Guidance for driving examiners. At the end of a test the examiner should offer the candidate a brief explanation of the faults marked on the DL25. This de-brief should aim to give the candidate a `word picture’ of their driving, including all serious and dangerous faults recorded and a selection of repeated driving faults. But he did not follow this rule.
Finally, Rule 1.45 says if at any time the instructor/trainer/accompanying driver comes over to the vehicle to listen to the conclusion of the test, and a debrief is to be given, the examiner must ask the candidate whether they want their instructor/trainer/accompanying driver present – but the instructor did not take my consent, before disclosing my result in front on my instructor.
As a result of the given information above, the examiner;
a. Breached the rules 1.56, 1.04, 1.08, 1.18, 1.45 of ’Guidance for driving examiners carrying out the practical and extended driving tests for cars’’
b. Failed to assess the test reasonably.
c. Worked negligently.
d. Undermined the value and ethics of examiner guidance.
I done my test with Lisa, she was lovely, made me feel at ease and was very professional! Thank you 🙂
I had 3 exams in this test centre. Passed 3rd time. None of the times I had the exam I had a bad experience, all the examiners I had were very good and normal. I had Shane, Pete and Eva. If I was marked down were on real mistakes I did. I don't think the examiners wish to failure, they just have to see if you can drive. Nerves like in my case don't help and can make you make more mistakes so try to be calmed and don't think the examiner wants you to fail, that's nonsense.
