Learner driver pulled over by cops after instructor makes a huge error

A learner driver endured the trauma of being pulled over by police thanks to a big mistake made by their instructor. Greater Manchester Police stopped the red Toyota Yaris on Longley Lane, in Wythenshawe.

The car, complete with L plates, was being driven by a novice while their driving instructor was sat in the passenger seat. But it wasn't an error caused by the learner which caught the attention of officers.

Police stopped the car and discovered it did not have valid insurance. Officers spoke to both the instructor and the learner driver, who was helpless behind the wheel while their tutor was being ticked off.

The car was eventually seized by officers. GMP shared an image from the scene on social media this afternoon (February 7).

A spokesperson for GMP Wythenshawe said: "Officers from GMP Transport Unit on patrol came to the attention of this vehicle on Longley Lane. The driver who was on a lesson and the passenger, the driving instructor, was spoken to and it was found there was no valid insurance in place and the vehicle was seized."
