Learner Driver Arrested For Turning Up To Driving Test In Stolen Car

Learner Driver Arrested For Turning Up To Driving Test In Stolen Car

A man who drove himself unsupervised to his own driving test has been arrested on suspicion of taking the vehicle without the owner's consent.

And to make his day even worse, he failed his test for the tenth time.

West Midlands Police shared a photo of the white Mitsubishi - in which the man had arrived - on Twitter and explained the bizarre situation.

In a post from the Force Response unit they called him: "Welcome to the world of stupid. Male turns up at the driving test centre for his driving test. Having driven himself there unsupervised.

"Then fails his test for the 10th time - male arrested by D unit Newtown for TWOC [taking without owner consent] offence."

Last year, a man in China failed his test after hopping into the car and then failing to understand how to fasten a seat-belt. Yup, the poor unfortunate chap was filmed on a dashcam while taking his 'Subject 2' test after passing his theory exam.

The notorious test is dreaded by learners in China, as it sees wannabe motorists sent out to the roads alone, while a camera watches over their every move.

Meanwhile, a chap in South Yorkshire took a whopping 33 attempts to pass his test. Determined Christian Whiteley-Mason spent 25 years and more than ten grand to get himself road-ready and finally passed in 2017.

He told The Mirror: "I can't believe I've actually finally passed after all these years. I'm still in shock!

"There was this one examiner at the Barnsley test centre who I used to pray I didn't get. She was notoriously tough and she failed me every time.

"I had 56 lessons with my first instructor and eventually he told me to just give up as I would never pass."
