Practical Driving Test Centre and Theory Test Centre Reviews
Had a female instructor who made me nervous from the start with her sarcastic demands. Told me to move on when I suggested I would complain. I asked for her name which she replied “I gave you that at the beginning “ but I forgot it, so sorry for wasting your time. Next time I get her I’ll secretly record it and put in on social media for all to listen.
Mod 2 test. 29th dec 2020 Straight away I knew I didn’t have a chance the guy who didn’t give his name clearly fell out of bed and was moody gave instructions late then failed me because I didn’t have enough time to do my checks asked me to stop on a right hand bend (late) on double yellows which I didn’t do because I thought it was unsafe this guy was clearly in a rush to get home
Failed my test a few times in another test centre so was dreading this test centre considering its reputation. Had an examiner called Andy who was really calming and friendly, which really helped. Passed with only 4 minors. Giving the whole experience 4 stars - minus one for the unfortunate location of the test centre!!!
I had a theory test on Saturday morning and upon arrival, I was greeted by a woman who worked there outside the building. I ensured I arrived with plenty of time to spare but despite this, I was told sharply that I was late. Furthermore, once inside, as it was my first time, I of course was feeling nervous when she sarcastically made the comment, " it does say you must arrive 15 minutes early in the email but clearly no one reads it". I arrived 10 minutes before but only because I got caught in traffic! The gentleman who helped me into the test room was lovely, however. Finally, as I sit to complete my test, another person arrives (still before the 9 o'clock start) where he too was rudely told to leave and rebook- there was no sympathy at all. Overall, not a pleasant experience.
I passed my test on the 28th December 2020 with just 7 minors. Had Mr Singh, proper friendly, made me feel comfortable than any other instructor! The test is went flying. Made me feel relaxed which no other examiner has. He ensured me that I’m doing good etc. Honestly it’s your lucky day if you have Mr Singh!
