Clipping a curb or missing a gear change within seconds of taking your first driving test is every learner’s nightmare … but to roll a car with the instructor screaming “Brake! Brake!” in your ear?
That’s what happened to a South Korean woman who spectacularly failed her test within 10 seconds of starting it. The dashboard-mounted video footage was posted on YouTube and shows the woman driving into a bank and flipping the car on to its roof.
A translation of the chaotic conversation between driver and instructor as they career towards the bank has also been posted. The driving instructor can be heard shouting “Brake, brake, brake, brake. Oh s**t. What do we do, what do we do.”
At this point the car hits the bank and starts turning on its side. The woman taking the test then says: “What do I do? What do I do?” To which the instructor replies: “Goddamn it! I said ‘press the brakes’. What are you doing not even knowing which pedal you are pressing? I am going to go crazy. Get out of this car.”
It is not known if the woman booked a second lesson.
