Experienced US driver takes UK driving test without lessons and it doesn't go well

Experienced US driver takes UK driving test without lessons and it doesn't go well

What happens when a confident US driver takes a test in the UK with zero lessons? We’re about to find out.

What happens when a confident US driver takes a test in the UK with zero lessons? We’re about to find out.

Khemaran is from Florida in the US, and has been driving over there for 12 years, which tells us he must know at least a little bit about operating a car…even if it is on the ‘wrong’ side of the road.

Kam wanted to pass his driving test in the UK, and called in the trusty YouTube driving man to help him out, AKA Richard Fanders from the Conquer Driving YouTube channel.

In the video, he claims he has a lot of driving experience, but also admitted that he has previously failed a test in the UK.

His last test was a failure due to taking the wrong lane on a roundabout…which gives us all a lot of hope for this test.

The video begins by Richard turning into examiner ‘Jason’, by putting on a high-vis jacket and turning into what feels like a horrible guy that doesn’t even want you to pass; we’ve all been there.

One person in the comments said: “Jason was on point for a DVSA examiner.

“The atrocious jokes, the robotic small talk (what would you normally be doing today), and the delivery of instructions - brilliant.”

Another said: “That examiner's act was absolutely brutal!!

“Perfectly captured how horrible they make you feel.”

Clearly we have all had the exact same experience with UK driving examiners.

The mock driving test lasted for around 35 minutes, with the instructor taking him on a mixture of different kinds of roads, including what felt like a couple of inevitable slip-ups from Kam.

We’re sorry lad, we promise we really had your back on this one.

And then begins the debrief.

Jason, the fake examiner, brutally revealed without the classic “I’m sorry to say…’, that Kam had failed the test.

And he hadn’t just failed the test, he did it with 11 minors and six, yes SIX, serious faults.

Not quite sure we’re ready to get in a car with you this side of the pond quite yet mate.

Despite the amount of faults, Richard did say that he felt ‘comfortable sitting in his car’... this guy must have seen some real questionable drivers in his time.

One commenter was quick to point out where he thought Kam went wrong, and said: “Kam seems to have struggled to adjust to our narrower roads and tighter junctions with reduced visibility.

“For those that haven't driven in the US, the roads are wider and the junctions, larger, with greater visibility, as such can be taken at much higher speeds.”
