I have had multiple tests at Wednesbury test centre. My first test I had an awful experience- I had driving examiner Chris. The whole experience was uncomfortable and I didn't enjoy doing the test at all, I felt as though he had the mindset of failing me before I sat in the car- he over exaggerated every move I made and was overall very grumpy and was awful at giving me feedback. The second test I had was brilliant here even though I failed the examiner was so kind and helpful and made me feel super relaxed, and on my third time where I passed I had examiner stuart- he was amazing, and engaged in conversation and was so polite and felt like he wanted the fairest outcome! And I passed on this attempt. I honestly think if you are a good drive the test center is fair! But some examiners are much kinder as a person than others, so don't let a moody man like Chris affect your stress levels on the day! As it certainly did mine. Best of luck!

Doesn't even deserve a single star, examiner is absolute horrible, forces pupils to cry. Avoid this place at all costs!!!

 by Angry

Only gave 1 star because no choice of 0 stars I seriously suggest the centre reviews their examiners and give them a training session on customer service and how to speak to people. More or less as soon as the test started Jas today shouted at the learner, huffed and puffed constantly. When the learned felt there wasn't a safe place to pull over said it wasn't a trick question and then spoke about the learner to their instructor as if they weren't there. Its a highly stressful situation anyone without having a power crazy idiot sitting next to you. Sort it out!,,,

Worst test centre ever!! Failed for something that didn't even happen and was given 14 minors. Dave is a terrible examiner and constantly huffed and puffed. He would give dirty looks every time I checked his side of the mirror. Failed for observations when I checked all the mirrors and blind spots when reversing not my fault he was daydreaming!!! Test lasted 55 mins aswell!!!!! Never go to this centre.
