I'm not here to berate professional driving examiners doing their jobs under incredibly difficult circumstances or to blame others for not passing the two drivings tests that I have now failed here. If you put other road users in danger or you cause serious problems on the road, then you won't pass, even if that is far easier said than done when your life is falling apart, you're barely holding it together and you desperately need that driving licence so that you can finally move house, get that job or drive your pregnant wife to hospital, or whatever other vitally important reason you may have. Would you prefer it they passed you and then you had an accident the following week? That really could ruin your life. I get that driving examiners see failing people who make serious or dangerous driving faults as a kindness, and yes, it sort of makes sense.
But...if you're finishing a 40 minute test 10 or 20 minutes in, because the candidate has already failed, and there's nothing to be gaining prolonging their suffering, but they've booked that time & have been waiting for it for months on end, then the least a human being could do is spend the remaining time helping the candidate understand what happened, why it was so important, and to reassure them that with a little time and practice in key areas, they could pass on their next attempt, and not to give up hope etc.
*That* is my complaint, not the decisions the examiners have made, which were harsh, but arguably fair, but rather the utter cold blooded indifference with which they've made it. Humanity is not what I've seen at Featherstone. In my last test, I got the strong impression that she could not wait to get rid of me. I had a 40 minute test booked, which was over in 25 minutes. I pulled up besides the car I was due to parallel park behind, a car tailgated me, I stuck my own car in reverse gear, and no sooner had my foot found the bite point of the clutch, she'd already pointed out my mistake (I'd forgotten to indicate left); straight back to the test centre it was. She must have had at least ten minutes of time before she needed to prepare for the next test to just say something, anything besides 'x y & z happened, and you've failed', and literally just getting out the car & leaving me there, with not a hint of compassion whatsoever. I get that you do this every day, and that we're just numbers to you, but if you've already had a driver's licence for decades, then I'm sorry, but you DO NOT understand the misery that this backlog has caused learner drivers. Lives are being ruined by this crisis, and literally all you care about is ticking boxes, recording statistics finishing up early so that you can go home.
Prove me wrong, please, I beg you, because truly, if you care, at all, about the lives that are in your hands on a daily basis, then you've got a damn funny way of showing it.
Never ever use Featherstone as an LGV test centre. My examiner; who I understand retired, but is now working part time is a complete joke. On my first attempt shouted 'stop' in the lane near centre, when a bus was 400 yards away, no danger to anyone & we were travelling at 10 mph !! Second attempt, 3 weeks later with the same idiot, who lost track of the 'independent driving' & started advising directions, & then 10 minutes later stated 'independent driving' was over !! failed again due to too many minors...waste of time/money.
I was assessed by three instructors with over 80 years combined experience, who were critical & professional during my class 2 training, advising that I was a safe, competent & careful driver. Our Country needs LGV drivers, but I will not be one of them.
I can't speak for anyone else's personal experiences or similarly how exaggerated the reviews may be. I passed my Class 1 first time today with examiner Mark Goodwin. The minor faults that I did receive I can fully understand and see how I could have done it differently. Yes some examiners out there may be a -little- more forgiving on marking but end of the day, you just get lucky if you happen to get one of those. Do everything as you're meant to and you won't fail.
My examiner Bob was a1. Lovely guy who put me at ease right away! Passed with only 5 minors! Don't be put off by the reviews on here like I nearly was! I guess most people only review when they have a bad experience but if you drive to test standard then you will pass! Thanks again Bob!!
Examiner Mark Goodwin is honestly out to make you fail. He even went to the point of being abusive after the test. I made numerous complaints about him. He even popped up on my Facebook recommendations, so he has obviously looked me up on there as well. Be careful if you have him, you have been warned.
