A driving instructor was arrested after failing a roadside drugs test for cocaine while supervising a pupil. Police stopped a white Vauxhall Corsa learner car in Suffolk yesterday, with the instructor then being arrested for failing a test for the class A substance. He was supervising a learner when the car was stopped in Lindbergh Road, Ipswich.

Norfolk and Suffolk roads and armed policing team tweeted a picture of the Corsa and failed drugs test, adding the hashtag ‘unacceptable’ as well as #Fatal4 – the police term used to describe drug and drink driving, using a mobile phone at the wheel, not wearing a seat belt, and speeding, which are the four commonest causes of fatal accidents.

A spokesperson for Suffolk Constabulary said the instructor was taken to Martlesham police investigation centre, where a blood sample was taken. The 30-year-old was subsequently released under investigation, pending the results of the sample. It’s not the first time that a driving instructor has failed a drugs test.

In October 2017, Fabienne Taylor, 31, of Kingswood Chase, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, was banned for 18 months after being convicted of drug driving.

She was found to have cannabis and cocaine in her system while driving a motoring school car.

As well as the ban, she was fined GBP100 and told to pay GBP85 costs plus a GBP30 victim surcharge by Southend magistrates.
