Police pulled over a learner driver after witnessing the instructor using his mobile phone during the lesson.
After the car was stopped earlier this week in Greater Manchester, the teacher was given a Traffic Offence Report.
On January 31, the student driving the white Toyota saw police patrols and pulled over in Salford, Greater Manchester.
However, according to the police, the instructor was “engrossed in his mobile phone call” and failed to see, as reported by the Manchester Evening News.
According to Greater Manchester Police, the instructor received a Traffic Offence Report (TOR) for using his mobile phone while giving a lesson.
After the car was stopped, the police published a picture of it next to an officer.
In a post, GMP Traffic said: “The instructor of this learning vehicle was so engrossed in his mobile phone call he failed to notice the #RPTF patrol on Great Clowes Street.
“Luckily his student did and kindly pulled over.
“Instructor issued with TOR for using a mobile phone under tuition.”
Many people left comments on the incident on the Manchester Evening New’s Facebook page.
One person wrote: “Needs naming and shaming! People are paying good money for inferior services! In fact, needs his instructor license rescinding!”
“I had a driving instructor who fell asleep. He only woke up when I went round a bend too fast and the car swung round the corner. Then on top of that, said he didn’t know where he was in the area”, another person claimed.
A third person added: “This is a duty of care towards his or her pupils, disgusting behaviour”.
“So many instructors I see doing this. I would be fuming if I was paying them to play on phone”, a fourth person said.
