These are to include junctions, roundabouts (to include mini roundabouts) and crossroads. Typically these traffic systems range from off main routes to narrow residential streets.

Quiet residential roads are likely to feature. These roads represent a hazard due to being narrow with oncoming traffic. Passing parked cars and dealing with oncoming vehicles often represents a challenge to learner drivers.

Rural roads may also feature from Hendon Driving Test centre as it is situated on the outskirts of London. Rural roads often have harsh bends where the ideal way of dealing with this can be found in the country road driving tutorial.

Today 7th of December 2023 I had my driving exam in Hendon test centre and the examiner name was Lilly . She is extremely excellent. I felt very very comfortable with her. I didn’t believe that I could make it this much easily today. She is really friendly. I pray for you guys to have an examiner like her on your test day. She is perfect and lovely😍😍😍😍

Just passed my test in Hendon with Lily S. I am so happy that she was my examiner. From the very beginning she gave me such a good and comfortable vibe. Even if I was nervous and anxious when we started the exam, her attitude and calm made me to fell comfortable and confident. I would love other people to have the same experience like I had, and meet this lovely person.

Just passed my test at Hendon but I am really dissatisfied with my experience. My examiner Ilana was very unkind and off-putting; she kept muttering under her breath and shaking her head throughout my whole test. She shouted at me near the beginning of the test about a temporary traffic light - I said I was going to wait at the light and she started laughing and shaking her head, 'What line?! There is no line,' so I had to repeat myself to explain I'd said 'light'. She then carried on muttering things to herself that I couldn't hear and I found it really hard to recover. At the end of the test she said with a stern face that I had passed and admitted that she had made a mistake by telling me off about the light, then proceeded to berate me for my lack of confidence on the road, which was honestly just because she had been tutting next to me the whole time. Even when she was giving me my pass certificate, she carried on making quiet sarcastic comments about my driving and laughing to herself ('That manoeuvre ... I thought you were gonna drive us right through the bushes at one point!'). Really horrible experience when it could have been such uncontroversial cause for celebration; the examiner seemed determined to undermine my confidence from start to finish.

I got an instructor called Benny. If you get him you have two choices:
1. cancel the test once you find out your examiner is Benny
2. if you still choose to bravely go ahead with the test, know that Benny will look for any silly little reason to fail you. Ensure the following; make dramatic and theatrical mirror checks, he has a fatter than average neck so can't always see you making your mirror checks due to his restricted movement.

I failed my test as Benny claimed I did not check my rear mirror when stopping the car for a pedestrian in front of my car. A pedestrian ran in front of my car and I braked. I agree I did not check the rear mirror. However, checking this would not have changed the need to immediately brake whatsover, as there was a pedestrian running in front of the car.
