Don't you love it when you see one of those cars with that huge light assembly on top saying Driving School? Whenever you see one, they're practically just begging to be cut off and honked at.

Anyone ever done that before?

The driver's ed instructors around here call the cops on people that tailgate them and shit.

One time a guy jerked the steering wheel at them down a country road. The instructor grabbed the wheel and nailed the brakes and put the car half in the ditch. Then he got in the car and chased the kid down, took his license plate number and called the cops.

I don't fuck with the DE cars around here.

Perfect setup:

You wait until he signals a left turn (they will do it a little early always), then you nail it around him through the right lane, cut the bitch off, jerk the e-brake, slide through the intersection while giving a peace sign with your right hand through your sunroof. oh, make sure you take your licence plate off first.

Haha, I could so see the kid's face when that happens.

In GA you don't have front license plates, so it would be easy to tailgate at night with your brights on (halogen bulbs). Only problem is since the kid is new to driving, he might hit the brakes too hard, so tailgating might not be the best idea....

I'm not partial on scaring the kid driving, he could get in a major freaking accident, they have no experience. That's not funny at all. Plus, it's just plain MEAN.

Although, doing crazy ass tricks around them is a lot of fun. I always love to pass these people going 30-40 over the limit, making sure to get my liscence plate out of sight quickly.

Be sure road has little traffic and is rather stright, lol.

1. In a 45 zone, do a flyby at about 80-90, or maybe even a comfortable 110 If this alone isn't enough fun for you... slam on brakes a few hundred yards past him down to about 45, and nail the e-brake, do a 180 into the oncoming lane, and floor it back towards the driver (be sure to get the wheels spinning some) and blow your horn constantly right before you pass him again. Then, disappear. Do this all so he dosn't have to shift lanes or anything. What would you do if you were one of the driving instructor passengers? lol!

2. If you see one at the front row at a stoplight, which happens frequently, Drift around a turn or do a 360 in the middle of the intersection. (Flash your brights at them) Then disappear.

3. Practice doing 360's at speed, keeping control, and not changing direction at all... (IE: you could do a 360 on the highway going 80 mph, and keep going.) Pass a student driver at speed, and do this infront of them (flash your lights for added effect), and then disappear.

4. Do a burnout if you get behind them.... Lots of smoke would flip them out.

funny story, just a few days ago actually,

following a student driver car (toyota corolla i think, old one), with a big sign in the back, didn't follow him on purpose, but he/she stood there at the green light for a good 5-10 seconds, so I gave a little honk, and the driver (i'm assuming) gets all nervous and speeds off, then starts to wobble...

At that point I changed lanes really quickly and sped past..

student drivers are very dangerous, don't mess with them or you'll end up causing a wreck (hopefully with you in it)
