Practical Driving Test Centre and Theory Test Centre Reviews
I failed 2 times with " the black guy" . At least have a bit of respect and remember his name . His name is Mr Sam and he is absolutely brilliant.
I failed 2 times because of my mistakes; stop blaming the examiners . I drive busses for a living and the idea of having incompetent drivers is very scary.
Prepare for the exam and you will be fine; none of the examiners ,especially Mr Sam , wants to fail you. If you fail, you did something wrong and you shouldn't be on the road. Good facilities, kind examiners and overall a pleasant experience ( i say this even if i failed twice) . He actually took the time and spoke with my instructor and gave him advice on what to prepare me better next time!!
Thank you to Sirish, his relaxed manner and friendliness put me at ease immediately and allowed me to pass my test! May you be blessed!
My daughter had her test on 14 September 2022 for the second time and got the same Examiner called Grace. As soon as she walked over to us my daughter went into panic mode! This Examiner is rude, huffed and puffed and shouted on test. My daughter is not a confident driver and the last thing you need whilst having a driving test is a rude, intimidating Examiner. Grace failed her both times. When I approached her after the test, to find out why she failed her, she told me to get a warning light looked at on my car and turned her back and stormed off into the office! So rude and totally unprofessional and not acceptable. It’s 2022 are we not moving with times and taking the stigma away from these people of authority who act like God!! Most of these pupils are young and very nervous, help them to feel relaxed and they will drive better! Grace needs to improve her people skills and attitude, as I can see we not the only people to suffer this awful human!! Come Test centre read your reviews and take some action!!!!! My daughter has been that upset by it she is choosing to take her next test at a different test centre, as is too scared and upset to risk getting Grace again!!!!
My daughter had a driving Examiner who could not even fit in the car.
Constantly interrupted her in her test which confused her . There’s a reason why certain parts of Bham favour this test centre , very poor standard of Examining . Avoid at all costs !!
I had a test today at 1:30 i was really stressed out and my examiner was really nice and caring. I wish everyone would come across her . She made me stress free. I hope u stay happy and have a healthy life. Keep going im routing for u. Your always in my prayers and thank you shakeela for teaching me for a long time.🥰
