It was the driver's second lesson behind the wheel and the learner plates were clearly displayed, his teacher said.

"Apparently the red HSV simply couldn't wait or be patient and passed us very close at full throttle."

The teacher said at the time they were passed their vehicle was doing 60kmh according to the car's GPS log.

"So clearly he or she was WELL over the limit.

"Honestly mate, we were all learners once.

"If it was your kid behind the wheel of my car and someone did that to them, I'm sure you'd be incensed."
