Learner driver driving unsupervised

Not so much an AIBU, as the title speaks for itself. But more the attitude of this particular girl in DD's class. Since early last year she has made my daughter's life miserable at school, tried to jeopardise her GCSE's by bullying her with nasty comments as they were waiting outside exam halls etc. Just a nasty very mixed up girl. Had to complain to school theee times, the last of which involved her physically pushing my daughter into a window. But it's an independant school..and she's still there...
Anyway, this girl has just been bought a brand new car, 18k worth, and is very much spoilt and likes to brag at school about it. She refuses to have the insurance tracker, so her insurance is 4k, but she doesn't care, and laughs about it openly in school. More fool her mother we say. Anyway, what I think is worse, is the fact that this girl has been blatantly driving around in her new car, unsupervised and without plates. We see her all the time, and other mums have commented too.
Having picked DD up late last night from a school event, this girl was again driving on her own. She has failed her theory twice and thinks it's funny. AIBU to think aside from her obvious don't care attitude, she is a danger on our roads..and what would you do?

Report it to the police. Now.

Call the police

I would report her to police and her insurance company if you know who they are.

PopCakes Sat 25-Mar-17 07:57:45

I would report her. She hasn't passed her test and she's not safe to be driving around. I'd have sympathy if she'd just moved her car round the corner or something because there was no one else to do it but blatantly driving around all over town on her own is outrageous.

I would be inclined to anonymously tip off the police, but you need to be absolutely sure that she hasn't passed her driving test. If this is the case she won't be insured, and that is illegal.

Call the police.

I would call the police.

Police, now.

Car and insurance cost aside, no licence and driving by yourself is dangerous. I would call the police.
Is there a set time she does it so they can catch her driving?
Her insurance would be void as you need to have an experienced driver in the car with you if you're on a provisional license

MrsPringles Sat 25-Mar-17 08:09:58

Yep agree with everyone else, police.

egosumquisum1 Sat 25-Mar-17 08:10:36

What do you think you should do if someone was driving illegally on the public streets?

WelliesAndPyjamas Sat 25-Mar-17 08:10:53

It's illegal. Inform the police.

ActuallyThatsSUPREMECommander Sat 25-Mar-17 08:10:59

This is one of those satisfying times when you can knife someone you dislike in the back with a totally clear conscience. Call the cops.

Finola1step Sat 25-Mar-17 08:11:15

Yep, report her.

BrieAndChilli Sat 25-Mar-17 08:12:09

I would ring the police and let them know along with her license plate, and times she's going to and from school etc.
Regardless of how you feel about telling on her, how would you feel if she ran over and killed someone - very possibly your daughter?

Berthatydfil Sat 25-Mar-17 08:12:43

Call the police

Police. Now. This bitch kills my dd I would struggle to be responsible for my actions.

TheFairyCaravan Sat 25-Mar-17 08:21:55

There was a girl doing this at college with DS1. I reported her to the police and didn't feel an ounce of guilt about it. You need to do it too.

lanbro Sat 25-Mar-17 08:22:04

Call the police. I found out one of my employees had been driving his parents car unlicenced when they were on holiday. I told him that if I caught him doing it again I would call the police. Arrogant and disgusting behaviour that could have dire consequences

blueskyinmarch Sat 25-Mar-17 08:25:27

Pretty unanimous OP - you need to call the police and report her. She is putting her own life and the lives of others at risk. Do you want that on your conscience?

user1490123259 Sat 25-Mar-17 08:26:00

police, definitely. She is a stupid, immature little cow, but she doesn't deserve to die for it - and she could if she isn't stopped.

I would consider this to be parental neglect, personally.

BusyHomemaker Sat 25-Mar-17 08:27:06

I agree you need to report this to the police. She's a danger to herself and others.

SailAwaySailAwaySailAway Sat 25-Mar-17 08:27:41

How do you know that she hasn't passed her test?

musicteacheriz Sat 25-Mar-17 08:29:56

In her OP she said she'd failed her theory twice which means she won't have been able to have sat her practical exam as you need to pass theory first
