Driving Instructor Shares Moment She Had To Stop Car For Dangerous Fault
| Last updated
A driving instructor has shared footage of the moment she was forced to hit the breaks to stop a learner's dangerous fault. Have a look below:
Driving tests can be nerve-wracking experiences: it's an hour of sitting next to a complete stranger who is judging your every move while you try to turn your green license into a pink one.
Still, despite the high stakes, it's important to keep your cool and remember the basic rules of the road, like giving way to the right at a roundabout.
But that is exactly what one unfortunate learner driver forgot during a mock driving test, and it's safe to say that it's every learner's worst nightmare.
The driving instructor, who is well known for her insightful TikTok videos, captioned the disastrous video: "A throwback to my first ever TikTok... I had to stop the car!", which showed the hopeful learner trying to cut across two cars at a mini roundabout on his mock-test.
This meant that the instructor from Clear View Driving has to hit her breaks, avoiding a potentially dangerous situation.
It's safe to say that the learner didn't pass his mock on that attempt, and while we're gutted for the lad, it was a pretty big f**k up.
However, the driver in question was quick to reassure viewers that his skills have since improved, commenting under the video: "Trust me guys 2 years later I can drive much better."
His instructor added: "Everyone makes mistakes," which is exactly what you need to hear after your driving fail is posted for the world to see.
Others chimed in with support for the learner, adding: "Bless him tho it can be so nerve racking!!!"
While another added: "This is how I failed my test, some goon never indicated so I carried on."
A third suggested that the other drivers might be at fault: "I do not understand the point of the roundabout markings if people drive over them.. or those drivers are at fault also?"
To be fair, you should always try to go around the roundabout, even if it's much easier to just cut across.
However, others were a little more critical, with a third user saying that the driver 'was coming into a roundabout too fast', with the instructor responding by saying: "He was about 12mph but he fully intended to go before the Audi."
Well, at the end of the day - as the instructor pointed out - everyone makes mistakes while learning!
