This six-part series follows some of Britain’s worst fully licensed drivers as they seek professional help to sort out their problem driving.
In Leeds, we meet Dave – an aggressive tailgater who is terrorising his family, his girlfriend and the rest of the city. Dave thinks he’s a good driver and doesn’t understand why everyone criticises him. It’s time for instructor Steve to mediate and slow Dave down.
In Halifax, schools examiner Helen is sick of having her driving criticised by her twin sister and supposed best friend. She knows parking is her weak spot but is she really so bad? Despite her weakness, Helen still thinks she’s a competent and safe driver and wants a second opinion from an expert to end the arguments.
Over in Norfolk, retiree Robert drives a classic Morris Minor in much the same way as when he passed his driving test in 1966. His sister Susan can’t stand his slow pace and wishes he’d embrace the 21st century.
It’s clear that Robert needs to learn that driving slowly can still be a danger.
Can a two-hour session with a professional instructor help turn these dangerous drivers into model motorists?
