Please readโ€ฆ The real reason Waiting times are so long here on the Island. Iโ€™ve never had this in 14 years of teaching!
Today, I took a student to the Test Centre to practice the St.Marys traffic light controlled junction.
On leaving the business park I saw that a blue car displaying L- Plates was directly behind us. We drove towards Honey Hill and then past Sainsburys towards the housing estate near Carisbrooke.
The same car was infact following us turn for turn.
We decided to practice some parallel parking so pulled up and stopped. The blue car drove past us and parked up.
We practiced the park a few times where I observed a person from the car check on us to see if we were still there!
As soon as we moved on, the same car followed us again. At this point I knew that it was a learner from out of the area accompanied by their full licence holder following us to try and find out where test routes were.
I then did a number of left and rights, my student even clocked he was following.
If I had have had time, I would have gone in a circle for 10 minutes to see how long it took them to realise ๐Ÿ˜‚
We concluded our lesson near Newport bus station and they then parked up in the student car park for Node Hill.
I couldnโ€™t stop myself and spoke to them & gave them some very appropriate advice!!
No one can drive safely trying to learn test routes!! Nor whilst following a driving school hoping they will show them! valuable practical test spaces are being taken by time wasters and unsafe drivers!!!
