I was harassed & asked inappropriate questions by the driving tester while taking my dmv driving test--legally anything i can do

i was taking my driving test when the dmv driving test started asking me if i had a boyfriend--i laughed it off and said no but then more questions came while i was driving--like if i was 18 which i am---if i like older guys, if my dad would let me date older guys and he kept staring at my chest while i was driving and especially when i had to back up the car. I felt extremely uncomfortable and when i was being graded after we finally came back to the dmv he wouldn't tell me if i passed or not be kept talking about how he liked me and gave me his number---he was in his 40s and used his power to manipulate the situation... I don't know the right place to report this as kept thinking about the other girl who might get in the car with him have go through what i did...

When you file a complaint against a government employee for actions or omissions that you claim took place in the course and/or scope of his/her supposed work, AND you want to preserve your rights to take legal action against the employee or the agency for which he/she works, there is a necessary and crucial "first step" that you must take pursuant to California law. The law I reference is the Tort Claims Act codified in the Government Code, starting at Section 900. I am providing you with a link to current California Law with this response. Whether you hire me or someone else, I recommend that you take action. You are not this man's first victim, and absent intervention by someone with courage will likely not be his last.
