Driving instructor sets up dash cam to record her students’ dangerous mistakes

Some of these will have you reaching for an imaginary brake pedal

While learner drivers may be the last thing you want to see when you’re on the road – everybody has to start somewhere.


Whether you look back on your ‘L’ plate days fondly, or otherwise or, like most of us, don’t remember them at all – Aman from Clearview Driving who has 273K followers on Instagram and 368K YouTube subscribers wants to jog your memory on the rules of the road.

The often fully-booked and fully approved driving instructor based in West London has been teaching behind-the-wheel novices since 2012 and started a YouTube account two years ago to ‘help anyone learning to drive or to improve their driving skills’.

See some of her pupils *interesting* driving in the video below:

The video of her pupils’ greatest hits and near misses opens with Aman hurriedly grabbing the wheel to avoid a near miss as her pupil unwittingly squeezes between a parked car and moving lorry on a narrow street.

Cut to harsh braking at zebra crossings, missed red lights leading to near-miss of a rear-end collision and impatient, experienced drivers losing their rag and overtaking – almost colliding with cars coming in the opposite direction – yikes.

While most of the mistakes lay at the door of the learner drivers telling them: ” Don’t do that,” , Aman is quick to point out when it is in fact ‘not their fault at all’.

The video documents how, with zero regard for her own vertebrae, she ‘prepares her students for all emergencies’ – and their emergency stops can be pretty intense – especially in slow mo.

What’s more her teachings on the rules of the road – can act as reminders for all drivers on what they should be doing in the drivers seat – including reminding celebrity driver, AJ Pritchard, to check his blindspots and not just his mirrors after a test manouvre.

Her encouraging teaching style helps relax anxious drivers – reminding some that they need to ‘breathe’ in transit, while having a laugh with others ‘when it’s safe to do so’ – but crucially she’s there to remind drivers when and when not to do things.


Reaction to the video saw some saying her lessons are like an ASMR approach to getting rid of your L-plates: “I love her videos. She’s so calm when instructing,” said one.

Another confirmed that staying that calm from the passenger seat isn’t easy: “I used to be a driving instructor as well and man… it is scary at times.”

A third says she learnt a lot from Aman just from watching the videos: “She’s amazing. I’ve watched her while preparing for my test.”
