Wherever possible as an Adi, I sit in the back during tests. We always try to practise the routes, so that problems can be sorted before the test takes place.
We can then show them the drivers' manual or Highway Code diagrams and explain. A couple of times the Examiner has stopped the test and I have driven them back. I would expect the Examiner to stop the test as I think other instructors would and not take their temper out on my car and our safety. On one occasion I warned my pupil not to touch the Examiner, and another I asked them not to laugh at my driving, as I had to drive them back.
Comment by Stephen Hicks posted on on 23 August Have myself been an ADI since and i praise the examiner for the timely action taken to ensure the safety of everyone from this candidate. On one occasion i had a stroppy know-it-all young 19 year old male pupil out on country roads in what is commonly known in this area as The Dengie Peninsula, numerous bendy winding roads with sharp left and sharp right turns in between tall hedgerows, it was basically yet another steering control lesson to help the lad understand why we steer with both hands and why we drive at appropriate speeds on national speed limit roads, explained to him on numerous occasions that the national speed limit is a guide for motorists not a target to aim for, as the lesson got into its first quarter the lad started driving faster and faster through a series of bends, not wanting to destroy the pupils confidence i calmly asked him "is this the appropriate speed for this type of road" Never saw him again and all his mates came to me afterwards for is lessons and all knew i had turfed him out of the car even before starting lessons with me.

Comment by Frederick Anderson posted on on 23 August Yes, one of several good reasons why I am glad to view my driver training career from behind the safety barriers of retirement! I had only one client whose driving test behaviour was outwardly violent and his previous form was, given a limited intellect, just short of angelic. Fortunately he was extravagantly under-built, so his threats against his six-foot tall, athletically inclined examiner could be considered ridiculous. The serious issue here is the likely behaviour of these drivers if they ever get onto the road, legally or not. And it is worth recognising that the angel on a driving test is not necessarily any better.
I have encountered one or two ex-clients in road situations that, on reflection, I am ashamed to have taught. Comment by Terry Bailey posted on on 23 August Reading the account given by the examiner it's clear that this driver was presented for their test by an ADI as the car was fitted with dual controls, thankfully this has not happened to me. A colleague had a similar incident and they to were shook up. These incident should be reported to the police as they are driving in a dangerous manner and as such should be dealt with by the courts.
Comment by Carlos Pereira posted on on 23 August Behaviour like this is Not acceptable! The one at fault is the instructor as it seems, from the Examiner description, that the candidate was not ready; the candidate was not able to follow directions and didn't know how to deal with roundabouts It could be that he was one of those candidates that found an instructor at the "last minute" to take him to the test???
Personally, I Never do that! I had myself a candidate with bad attitude that was not happy with being failed so he started to insult and threatening the Examiner to which I promptly stud in between and advised him to stop it otherwise the Police would be called Instructors should be more concerned about the Driving Standard of their pupils not only about the money they will make by taking someone to a test. This situations could have been avoided from many years back if the Government and the DVSA were to introduce a minimum of, let's say, 20 hours of driving training Before a candidate was allowed to take a driving test - that's the norm in many other countries My applause to the Examiner that kept his cool and took a Professional approach to the situation.
Comment by Peter Miles posted on on 23 August Horrifying story, my sympathy is entirely with the examiner.

I totally agree with the comments above that the driver should not be allowed to sit another test for a good length of time, say twelve months. The problem is, of course, that someone like this will probably just start driving anyway, with or without a licence, and no insurance either. In my view this should have ended up in court. Comment by Albert DSouza posted on on 23 August I think the abusive candidate should have a anger management course and then subjected to extended test.
Albert - ADI Croydon. Comment by Jackie Willis posted on on 23 August The problem, I believe, lies in the fact that anyone can take a driving test, irrespective of whether or not they have taken professional tuition with an ADI. He may very well have been driving alone, or with his peers, and never had any form of tuition. Parental influence may be equally as bad. Until we change our laws to make learning to drive with an ADI compulsory, these people will continue to rear their ugly heads!
