You forgot to return the result of the super. And I don't think you need the sudo either....

So instead try:

return super(test, self).create(vals)

Thank you very much. Removing sudo in the test class seems to be the difference. However in my real code i start getting the error "One of the documents you are trying to access has been deleted" without sudo. Anyways thanks for the above answer. Will try to find this one
