    Default Same deal :(

    I've taken my test twice, both times I've had my instructor in the back, so that if I fail he can see where I need help. The first time the examiner was really nice, I had one serious for lanes on a roundabout my front wheel went a little over the line when I turned. it was a really tough one but I thought fair enough, I shouldn't have crossed the white line. She said apart from that I did great and to book the next one immediately. So I accepted it and booked the next.

    Today I had my 2nd. The route was much harder, and my examiner was young, (about 27) he had large sunglasses, really gelled up hair, and sat back in his seat like he just didn't care at all. I had two massive roundabouts including the one from before, and did them perfectly, I did a perfect reverse around a really busy corner, and loads of junctions. We got stuck in traffic because instead of going directly back to the test center, he choose to detour around this block, we were actually 10 minutes late and my test went on for nearly 50 minutes. When we got back, to the center, we pulled in and he said "You've failed because at the very start you didn't look left at the junction." I had no other faults what so ever.

    Me and my examiner were shocked, I did look left, but I remember he turned his head away from me at that point for a very long time, I remember thinking he was very rude for doing this. My instructor said that I definitely did look left, but he turned his head for so long that he wasn't even paying attention to me. He said he was certain I'd passed, and that if Id had any other examiner I would have.

    Appealing does nothing, they won't change it, I'm just so angry.

    Aye! When I sat the PSV driving test, I was failed because I hesitated too long at mini roundabout, this was made worse by drivers not signalling their intentions when leaving it?It was an old fashioned bus, no power steering or other such luxuries, so not that easy to get round a mini roundabout out? I just had to accept it, even though I felt really hard done to, also, it was an expensive test to take?
