Lad Kills Deer During Driving Test, Still Passes With Only Two Minors
Driving tests will always be tough. You're told: "stay calm, don't panic, if you mess up or you stall, stay assertive and just correct yourself".
But what's the protocol if you kill a f***ing deer mid-test? Pull over, put it in neutral, kill the engine and panic like fuck? Because that's certainly what I'd do.
I, however, am not Tom Lo.
Tom inadvertently hit and killed a deer during his test, but he still managed to pass, with only two minors.
The 17-year-old slammed on the emergency brake - which would actually put him in good stead on his test - but still unfortunately mowed down the deer.
"I had so many things going on inside my head. I thought have I failed my test? Has the deer died? It was crazy when it happened. I was pleased to pass my test but I also killed a baby deer so I didn't feel like celebrating. I was just happy because I had worked hard and it was important to me," he told the Evening Standard.
Following the collision Tom's examiner got out of the car to inspect damage to the car - nothing but a cracked registration plate - and Tom was then allowed to continue.
Robert Jezierski, Tom's instructor at Coggeshall Driving School, said it was obvious the teen was shaken up, but paid full credit to him for passing with only two minors.
