LAD Fails Driving Test Because He Can't Work A Seat Belt

LAD Fails Driving Test Because He Can't Work A Seat Belt

For some people driving comes naturally. For others, unfortunately, it's not so easy.

Some drivers will get in their car, strap their seat belt in and then get off like it's nothing. Other people will struggle with the routine, with this guy not even making it passed getting the first hurdle...

He managed to fail his driving test before even starting the engine because he spent 40 seconds wrestling with the seat belt.

The Chinese learner passed his theory exam and was in line for the notorious 'Subject 2' road test - which is apparently the part most dreaded by Chinese driving pupils - but wasted his previous efforts by falling flat on his arse in the opening minutes of his test.

The solo road test has an on-board camera filming the young drivers on their tests, so this unfortunate chap has to relive his nightmare over and over.

Those close to the unnamed fella claim it was his first time behind the wheel of a car, which says more about the Chinese driving examination than it does about him, to be honest.


Though this is fairly embarrassing, seat belt woes are rarely something acknowledged by examiners, but on this occasion the invigilator decided that it be best if he didn't go any further.

The clip is now going viral on social media with more than 2 million views.

Driving Lessons To Resume From 4 July In England

Craig suffered massively from pre-test jitters, with his mind going completely blank when the clock ticked to test time.

The 33-year-old Scotsman drove on through the nerves, however, and lasted a full five seconds before he'd failed his test.

Taking a 50/50 chance, he left his test centre and immediately went into the right hand lane after forgetting which side of the road to drive on.


"You do realise you're on the wrong side of the road?" said the examiner. Poor Craig was forced to finish the remainder of the test even though he'd already failed. And to add more oil into his carburettor, he'd have passed based on the last 40 minutes of driving.

"I was only just leaving the centre to get out. We were literally just five seconds into it," he said. "I was approaching the junction to exit it and I had an absolute mind blank, questioning in my head: 'What side of the road do we drive on'?

"I had a 50/50 chance, and I chose to exit it in the right lane. Instant fail. Had I not been so stupid I'd have breezed through."

His examiner and instructor claimed they'd never seen anything like it. Family and friends were quick to laugh at the poor lad, saying that old adage, 'the best drivers pass second time'.


After being put off getting behind the wheel at 17, having stalled at a roundabout, the 33-year-old decided to take up lessons again, spending around £1,000.

"My examiner with 20 years' experience, and my instructor with 30 years', both have never witnessed anything like it in their careers, they said," Craig added. "I hadn't even left the test centre car park.

"I think it's when you get older you get a bit wiser but that's rich coming from me after failing like that. I've lived in the UK my whole life so there's no excuse for not driving on the left."
