A teenager's first driving lesson took a calamitous wrong turn after he crashed into a parked car and later discovered he was not insured to be behind the wheel.
Jordan Snow was driving under the supervision of his step-dad in his home town of Lutterworth earlier this year, a court heard.
The collision with the parked car happened when the 19-year-old novice driver turned off a main road into a side street and put his foot down too heavily in order to avoid an oncoming vehicle.
Following the crash, it emerged he was not insured to drive - an offence which earned him a six-months disqualification.
