Learner drivers are being encouraged to film their driving tests, covertly if necessary, by PoliceWitness.com.
With many driving instructors already using dash cameras during their lessons, PoliceWitness is encouraging the use of video technology during every driving test, through the use of the same in-car camera.
This, it claims, would allow instructors and their students to ensure that the test was carried out fairly and an unsuccessful outcome was the correct decision, in which case the footage can be used as a learning tool to point out to the student where they went wrong.
Matt Stockdale, owner of PoliceWitness.com, said: "If a student believes they have been failed unfairly, the only recourse is to make a formal complaint to the test centre.
“The remedy, at best, is a refund of the test fee, with the student forced to have further lessons and re-apply for a further test.
"We would like to see the DSA welcome the introduction of video technology in driving tests.”
In-car cameras are already being used by thousands of driving instructors who use them to record lessons, provide feedback to students and capture any anti-social behaviour they are subjected to while teaching.
However, the recording of driving tests is not currently allowed.
A Milton Keynes driving instructor, who uses an in-car camera every time she uses her car, welcomed the campaign.
She said: "Using a dashcam would be helpful during a test situation because I could watch the footage and see how my student performed, what they struggled with and whether it was worthy of a fail.
“It would help to concentrate efforts on further teaching but, if I disagreed with a test result, I could use it as evidence of wrong-doing on the examiner's part.”
