Practical Driving Test Centre and Theory Test Centre Reviews
Rang to enquire about theory test date change, rude women on the phone ended call before I had finished asking questions.. rang again to get DVLA helpline number spoke to chap he put me through but lines closed til Monday, rang again 3 times and phone was put down straight away..
Not acceptable was only asking for advice
I had a horrible examiner his name is Barry, he shakes his head, makes rude comments, breaths loudly, he failed me twice and really enjoys telling that I have failed, talks rudely and arrogantly,he should be fired, i am shocked nothing is done about it.
Had my test today ,with the same lady in question on this review site, apparently the maximum speed limit assigned to the roads is the target you must be driving at and nothing below - such as 55 in a 60. I think this lady needs her own certification reviewing! as that is not what is within the highway code. We wouldnt have overtaking lanes if that is the case.
I would not recommend this test centre,
If I could give the women there below one star I would, she’s failed me twice and is far to picky, I pulled out of a road turning right and she failed me even tho I looked and the road to clear, if you want to pass don’t use this test as she is really isn’t worth the risk of getting her 🤦♂️
Absolutely unfair. Due to the Pandemic which is of no fault to learner drivers. Examiners are expected to bring their students back a soon as they make a major mistake. This can be understandable. However I feel that the examiner used this as an excuse. My driving has been of pass test standard. As a learner we can become nervous and make a major mistake. On this occasion I stalled three times, due to nerves but didn’t panic at all. Continued driving. As I was going up a hill the car required a lower gear which i did Select, due to stalling with no cars around me the examiner only took me out for 10mins approximately. And failed me. Even my instructor debated and was shocked with the outcome! I felt like he only did his bit, he just needed a minor mistake so he can go back. They are getting paid for not even meeting their job requirements. I find it’s so Unfair !!! what if the examiners in the education department behaved like this? How unfair!!! It doesn’t give people like this the permission to take advantage of a pandemic, teachers, doctors and The police force are all providing a high standard service. The Heaton test center examiners need to learn from these people. People need to stop booking tests at Heaton there are other test centres.
