I dont believe whats happened, First pup on test

Was feelling really tense first pup on test only been a PDI for 5 weeks, but I was confident she could pass.  Car all polished up ready to go. Half of me nervous half of me looking forward to the day.
Then the phone goes my pup not very happy, Examimer ill test cancelled less than half a days notice .
Even worse the next available test date is in 6 weeks time. Do they not have a back up Examiner or extra test time slots for such an occurance? If not why not? Really feel for her 6 weeks is far too long to have to wait. Has this happened to anyone else?

Has this happened to anyone else?

Yep...it's probably happened to just about every driving instructor at some time.

One of my instructors had it happen 3 times in a fortnight earlier this month.

Re: I dont believe whats happened, First pup on test

From what I have read on forums, it is something you will have to get used to. We here in NI are under the dvani and dont seem to suffer to the same extent, I have never had a test cancled or moved. Last week I was waiting in the test centre and a member of staff called my pupils name 5 minutes before the test and my heart sank thinking this is going to be the first cancled test.  There had been an accident on an earlier test and the ex had gone home but they asked us to wait 15 minutes and they had another ex come from elsewhere.

Re: I dont believe whats happened, First pup on test

hi I had my first attempt booked for my part 3 a few days ago and it got cancelled the day before. My licence runs out next week so now I need to spend another 140 on a 2nd licence- that's if I can even get one!!! Fingers crossed. I would have thought they'd have a back up examiner would have thought lots of people wanting examiner jobs but maybe not.... My next one not til 15th October that's the earliest date they got !! Just assure your pupil that by the time 6 weeks is up they should have a clean sheet with no minors!!!


5/7/08 passed adi part 1 - 100/60 (1st attempt)
3/11/08 passed adi part 2 - 2 minors (1st attempt)
15/10/09 passed adi part 3 - 4/4 (first attempt)

Lets hope ours doesn't get cancelled today.  6 hour round trip out to Clacton! 

I have to tell those out on day trips:  If it gets cancelled you won't get all your money back and I still have to charge!
