This test centre is taking your money and failing you on purpose. I’ve just read the offcom records on this site. Their having a good old laugh at our expense , they know how many they fail before the day starts . It’s disgusting and unfair. Not to mention all the examiners are old age pensioners so very old old skool , one mistake to them it’s a fail!! And if your of different nationalities your failing end if……

I felt like I was in crown court before I even got in my car, jacky was rude, abrupt, and not professional . Wasn’t even in my car 8 minutes and I knew I’d failed before I got in! Her attitude was disgusting and she does not deserve that job. Questions not relating to my test, uncompassinate, terrible attitude and a horrible person .

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 was very nervous about my test since i failed my first one. However Simon was helpful in putting me to ease and was a pleasure to speak to. He frequently initiated conversations as I told him at the start that talking helps me drive better. Overall my experience was pleasant and Simon made it even better.
