Many driving test centres offer Saturday weekend driving tests. Although this is a slightly higher fee, it can be of benefit due to less traffic density on a Saturday.

Unfair test standards, instructors intervene even though you know what you are doing and you are fully aware of the surroundings. This caused me to fail in the last minute of my test

Absolutely unfair. Due to the Pandemic which is of no fault to learner drivers. Examiners are expected to bring their students back a soon as they make a major mistake. This can be understandable. However I feel that the examiner used this as an excuse. My driving has been of pass test standard. As a learner we can become nervous and make a major mistake. On this occasion I stalled three times, due to nerves but didn’t panic at all. Continued driving. As I was going up a hill the car required a lower gear which i did Select, due to stalling with no cars around me the examiner only took me out for 10mins approximately. And failed me. Even my instructor debated and was shocked with the outcome! I felt like he only did his bit, he just needed a minor mistake so he can go back. They are getting paid for not even meeting their job requirements. I find it’s so Unfair !!! what if the examiners in the education department behaved like this? How unfair!!! It doesn’t give people like this the permission to take advantage of a pandemic, teachers, doctors and The police force are all providing a high standard service. The Heaton test center examiners need to learn from these people. People need to stop booking tests at Heaton there are other test centres.
