There is certainly no legal reason why you cannot video the test. Whether it is wise to do so is another question. I do not know what effect it will have upon the examiner. You probably don't want to tell the examiner that the video is to use against the examiner. You might want to ask for permission and you might want to tell the examiner that you are doing it to improve your driving skills.
