Are the Driving Standards agency entitled to cancel my practical driving test because i was eight minutes late

I got my times mixed up unfortunately and i got to my test 8 minutes late where i was told that it was too late to do my test. All i want to ask is whether i should be entitled to a free retest or not?
I am based in the UK


Anybody know some tricks to help you pass vehicle emission testing?

Unfortunately for you, you will have to book and fund a retest yourself. The examiner has got 5minutes after the test is due to start for you to arrive if you are running late. Each examiner has got a tight time schedule to stick by, 57 minutes to be exact. Within this 57 minutes they must meet you, check paperwork, walk to car, eyesight check, show and tell, explanation of drive, then the actual drive (lasting 38minutes) and finally back to test centre for de breif and write out your pass certificate (hopefully). So that is why they have odd start times. The examiner has been given their guidlines by the government and not make them up themselves!

Does anyone have corporate code foe enterprise rent a car they would like to share?

Hopefully when you book your other one you will get an appointment letter which you must keep safe!

WHaT is A boYcoTt?

Hope this helps, good luck with test.

Which car is better, 2007 Scion TC or 2007 Ford Mustang?

if you was late its your own fault the only thing you can do is book a retest

Quick free points!?

sorry mate, you will have to pay again. all tests are supposed to leave the test centre at the same time....usually 2 Min's past the hour or another silly time like that. the examiner still had to be paid.

Which car would be a better street raceing car?

Yes, they are allowed to do that. This is why they set the time and date, It is up to you to make sure you get there on time.

What is your favorite type of car?

If not, a lot of people will show up late and they will have no control over it.

I got a speeding ticket in Texas in a work zone, how can I get it off of my record ?

Sorry man, you have to re-schedule the appointment.

My 2001, F-150, V6 misses and backfires ,and was giving lean code help?

I hope you pass!

On my 25th driving lesson is that to much? still need more yet?

I know nothing about the Driving Standards agency in the UK (in America, I'd wager you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone that does), but your [first] question was whether they have the right to cancel your test when you show up late. More specifically, when you don't show up on time.

My car is stuck in an iced-over snowbank... how do i get it out?

What would you have them do when you miss your appointment? What is an appointment time for, if not to get you there at that time?

Do you think my car will have problems after i put in unleaded fuel instead of diesel?

Of course they have the right to cancel when you're late - you already knew that. Your second question concerns whether you get a free retest (I assume you paid for the first one and are thus out that money). This is a question for the Agency, not for anyone here. You're asking a Right/Wrong question, when you should be asking are you *entitled* to a free retest, and that isn't something anyone here is likely to answer with conviction.
