The Worst First Lesson Ever

Here at Britannia we like to see all driving students succeed. We encourage and praise them when they do well, and we help them to move past any minor mistakes they may make, helping them on their journey to become better drivers, and not to focus on their errors.

However sometimes, exceptions do have to be made.

Luckily this was not a student of Britannia Driving School, but rather a peer from across the pond – a USA Driving pupil, on their FIRST DRIVING LESSON, who managed to roll the car onto its roof.

In a similar fashion to last summer, when we wrote about the Worst Driving Test Ever, this pupil will most likely be hanging their head in shame after somehow flipping the car upside down during their first hour behind the wheel. The student, from Waltham, Massachusetts, lost control of the vehicle in a residential area, hit a tree, and simultaneously performed an unintentional aerial U-turn, leaving the car stranded on its roof until Police arrived at the scene.

Luckily the pupil and his instructor escaped unharmed – but he may still be several lessons away from passing his test.

Your first lesson may not have gone too well, with you probably stalling, or even scraping the bumper against the kerb – but take solace in the fact that it could have gone much worse.

Safe driving from Britannia!
