My daughter had her test with Alan this morning, failed her for stalling on a roundabout, she drove perfectly for the rest of the test which he even stated himself. Oh and a minor for not knowing where the brake fluid is, what an idiot of a man 🤬

Examiner failed me for going 26 on a 30 never again

Examiner made me follow road signs for the whole test in a place im not completely familiar with and failed me for hesitating on the roundabout because I should have been given a Sat nav especially because of the busy roads and weather conditions.

Had Alan. He failed me for being over hesitant on busy roundabouts and for not changing gears when I change lanes?? Also grabbed my steering wheel whilst going round a bend despite the fact that I was safely on my side of the road and was going slow to avoid any collisions with oncoming vehicle. Hopefully next time I get someone who isn't set out to fail everyone.

Just wanted to thank the examiner Brian. I was so nervous but straight away he put me at ease. He explained everything really well and was clear with his instructions. Because of his lovely manner he totally calmed me down. And the result was a first time pass. Thank you.
