My daughter took her test today and I knew before they even left the room that he’s was going to fail her because I spoke up about the website (he also made a comment to her about me when he asked her if she wanted me to come along and she said no- she didn’t want the extra stress “still says stay in your vehicle and your examiner will come to you”. He instantly didn’t like me so failed my daughter who is a better driver than a lot of adults I know that have been driving for years. She’s very sensible and competent in the road. Also the new (give way to pedestrians crossing at junctions is NOT clear enough about where you should and shouldn’t do so and she got marked down for letting some girls cross). Also instruction of “take the second exit” at a roundabout that includes a left only lane into a business estate - after departing the roundabout) does anyone EVER include that left lane as part of the roundabout ??? I dii on but know anyone that does - especially since it’s then a BusOnly lane AND same roundabout markings have got arrows on the road to go straight on in BOTH lanes, therefore she didn’t take the wrong lane anyway - very unfair to pick this particular roundabout. All very wrong in my opinion. Also, gave her a minor for something to do with the car but didn’t explain what that was? We had the whole car checked the day before - got new brakes and tyres too.
My daughter took her test today and is an extremely safe, competent and confident driver. As soon as we saw Gordon, I knew he would fail her. He failed to smile, greet her politely and didn’t even look her in the eye. This was in stark contrast to the other 2 examiners who were the exact opposite - it was obvious then that my daughter had drawn the short, ‘unlucky’ straw! Everything about him was unprofessional in every way and this lack of professionalism and inconsistency between examiners is wrong. She did fail, the reason given makes no sense and she even disputes this and Gordon needs to be retrained with greater monitoring and accountability.
Taken a while but it's finally sunk in that I can drive! Thank you Helen. I ranted about the sat nav and said some very rude words. She was amazing. I say again Thank You Helen ! X
At the start of my test i was met by Gordon Farquart, i thought driving examiners should be friendly and making there students feel at ease but this man was rude and made me feel nervous straight away. Due to where he was sat he was in the way for me to be able to change gears easily, I failed with a parking major which i do believe was wrong. I was told i did not check behind me when i'm 99% sure i did check as i have no reason to have not done that as always do and i am confident with my driving. I was very disappointed having spent £120 on my test day just to fail and have an examiner with such a bad attitude.
My son failed his test today and wasn't clear why. He was told he was in the wrong lane on a roundabout When he was going straight on, although the lane was clearly marked as one that he could be in to go straight on. More disappointingly the examiner, Gordon Farquhar, was unfriendly and made no attempt to put my son at ease. I believe that they are supposed to make some effort to be be welcoming, in recognition of the fact that the driver will probably be quite nervous. The examiner's attitude was unnecessarily rude made my son feel very uncomfortable being in the car with him.
