On saturday I re-did my CBT as my last one had expired after 2 years. I went with a different instructor as on the last one the ear piece left me partially deaf for several days and unable to understand the instructor as the sound was so awful, so I was hoping for an improvement.
However, this was just as bad. I tried both ears, adjusted volume right down, and had the instructor play with the signal etc, but it was frankly rubbish. I missed instructions as although I could 'hear' the sound was so bad I couldn't make out many of the words. Is this normal? I was hoping to book onto my full test soon, but I cannot see how I could possibly pass if this is the case. Not only was it extremely difficult to understand, but it made for a rubbish experience and my concentration wasn't where it should have been.
I am now left 2 days later with ringing in my ears again. The instructor seemed suprised as 'everyone usually has it on volume 4, but you are on the lowest setting'!
Any suggestions? Any recommendations for instructors in Kidderminster area?
