Mark is an absolute waste of space. If he thinks laughing at my girlfriends girlfriends minors during her driving test is 1. Helpful and 2. Correct then he’s cuckoo! After reading the reviews of this guy I only prayed she wasn’t going to get him! Their job is to assess someone’s ability to drive safely and accurately and I don’t see how the above allows anybody who gets in the car to do so fairly! If anybody gets in the test centre and is greeted by him then I would swiftly turn around as it’s a waste of youre time! I’ll be going down there to discuss these matters face to face with this bully who gets great joy out of failing good, safe drivers and loves to insult and laugh at those who are nervous to set foot in the car in the first place! BULLY!

All the examiners are professional, welcoming and hard working. Many examinees are unaware of the reasons they fail, due to not being observant enough. Examiners need to see good; control, observation and prediction of safety before you are let on roads.

Very unprofessional, the examiner failed me due to things are couldn’t even bee minors, would not recommend.

I took three tests at Shrewsbury, with Malcolm, Jackie and Peter. After reading other reviews I was worried that it would be terrible, but they honestly couldn't have been better. All three were reassuring before and during the test, and when I failed they explained why I'd failed in a fair manner. Go into it positive and you'll be fine!

Rude and patronising examiners. It is an ego boost for them to fail people on minor errors that they can easily make out to be serious faults. I assume the only source of ego they get in their lives.
