I did my test in this centre . It is my 4th attempt overall and 1st attempt in upton. I passed here. I am foreigner in this contry and didnt face any issues as such.
Certain examiners are looking to fail you on anything. Will go out of their way to make you feel uncomfortable and nervous. Do not recommend for young people taking their driving tests.
Did the exam twice, driving for more than 15 years, have not had any accident in my life although I drove in very dangerous countries. Drive in UK for 4 months by international licence. Took many many hours of lessons . Failed twice, the first time, because of a fault from a cyclist. The second time ,for literally no reason . After I was about to get from the roundabout, the examiner told me , ,( be careful) , !!!!! There was a car on our right . The car was Mile away, did not change speed or direction or what so ever. This was the roundabout just 100 meter before the end of the exam. 99.9 % this time was because of my skin colour and because you do not have any rights to object or complain, I will never do it again in this centre. Bad to experience racism
My daughter has just come back from failing her first test, upset but also very frustrated with the female examiner. She said that she was speeding in a 30 when my daughter was adamant that she wasn't. She also failed her for not looking before pulling off yet my daughter offered to tell her what the people where wearing at the side of the car that she could only see by looking behind her, but the lady was not bothered and she then would not let my daughter forwards park in a slot of her choice as she has been told that she could choose but the examiner made her park in a slot that was not her choice. If examiners have a "quota" then they should be sacked as this is disgusting. An examiner is there to examin but to put the person at ease and this woman was unfriendly, unhelpful and known by other driving instructors as a "b****"
I failed my test at Upton 10 secs from test centre, because as I came off the roundabout I did not turn my head around 180 degrees and check if there were any cars, cyclists turning off at the same time as me ( blind spot ) he gave me a serious fault for that, even though I did check my mirrors as I left the roundabout and turned left to test centre. My mirrors have blind spot on them which I mentioned to Him, I got 6 minors, 1 of them was for going over the speed limit. Upton is rigged 50% pass rate, you are fiddling the numbers to get more money from people........ they like to fail people at the roundabout cause its the last place they can fail people if they are good drivers. Upton test centre is rigged for failure, 25-30 fails a week at nearly £70 a time nice little earner .........!!!!!!!!!!!!
