A minimum of one driving test manoeuvre will be required and a 1-in-3 chance of the emergency stop procedure being requested. 10 minutes will be reserved for the independent driving. Independent driving involves the test candidate reading and following basic maps, directions and road signs.

Just taken my 2nd test at Hastings Test Centre again got the same rude, obnoxious, nasty examiner I had the first time who ridiculed me in front of my Driving Instructor when we got back to the Test Centre last time. This time, he decided to push the dual control brakes in the vehicle as I was manoeuvring right at some traffic lights and the car opposite was turning left and stopping vehicles behind him moving forward so I started to turn right and move off and he touched the brake. This man is making the driving experience awful and my Sister had the same issues with him 11 years ago and he is still got his very poor bad attitude to young drivers......not a nice man BOB
