Current law does not allow the test result to be overturned; the examiner’s decision is final.
Complainants have the right to appeal if they think the examiner did not carry out their practical test in line with regulations.
If the complainant lives in England and Wales, they have six months after the test date to appeal to the Magistrates court about the way the test was conducted. The Magistrates court can look at whether the test was carried out in accordance with regulations; however, it cannot change the result of the test. Should the Magistrates court find that the test was not conducted in line with regulations, it may offer a compensation payment or free retest.
