A learner driver failed to pass her test after police pulled her over in the middle of the exam and seized her instructors ‘s car for not having any insurance.
During the driving test in Tile Cross, east Birmingham, West Midlands Police checked the car and found it also had no MoT.
The force’s road policing unit said the student would have passed the test had it not been interrupted, as no mistakes had been recorded.
The examiner and student were given a lift back and the instructor was brought to the car.
According to police, the 46-year-old owner of the car admitted knowing it was not insured but denied knowing the car had no MoT.
West Midlands Police said the instructor was a genuine Advanced Driving Instructor but they were now “in possession of their badge”.
Police later confirmed that as this was a road test, the instructor and student had committed no offence, adding “instructor waiting back at test centre commits the offences”.
The instructor was reported to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and will need to provide valid insurance and MoT documents to police at a later date.
