My Mom taught me to drive, and she learned in the UK where you actually need to demonstrate at least a modicum of driving ability to pass. Long story short, my first time out she decided to give me a bit of “real-world experience” by yanking the handbrake halfway round a 40mph bend and sending the car in a full 360 into the adjacent field.

Her response to my (I think fairly righteous) fury: “when you can do that yourself and hold the slide, you can go take your test.”
