No consistency with the examiners.
A candidate failed today on a specific error when another passed with the same error.

Thank you to John Grant who I passed with today. Such a nice man and good examiner. (Name removed) failed me twice and the second time I knew before I got in the car I was going to fail. He was rude and not a good examiner.

Shouldn't even be given a 1 star. Examiners are rude and arrogant. 2nd time trying and I felt very uncomfortable on both. Huffing and puffing when I made a mistake that my instructor said clearly him self I've never done but apparently done 3 times on my test. Maybe if I didn't get took on a test for 1 HOUR. (Pretty sure a test is ment to be 38-40 minutes as they clearly stated before leaving for my test) I wouldn't of Felt even more under pressure to make sure I pass and work my absolute heart out to pass. I arrived back to the centre really believing that I did pass .

Need to ask your self that I and people like me are qualified by our instructors to sit for the driving test, or let us know if you're playing a gamble.
