Teen Driver Loses His License Just 49 Minutes After Passing Test

For most young drivers, getting your license means being free to head out and enjoy the open road, either by yourself or with your friends, knowing that your world is about to expand as you no longer require public transportation or your parents to drive you around.

What’s not ideal is to have that dream taken away from you just 49 minutes into it, as was the case with an 18-year old in Germany, who was nabbed by a laser speed gun while traveling at almost twice the speed limit.

Authorities in the town of Hemer caught him doing 95 km/h (60 mph) in a 50 km/h (30 mph) zone, reports the BBC. The young man also had four of his friends in the car, which led police to speculate that perhaps he was trying to impress them by going fast.

“Some things last forever – others not for an hour,” German police wrote in their statement, sounding like something out of a sarcastic fortune cookie.

The teen, formally banned for four weeks, is also facing a €200 ($228) fine, two points on his license (once he’s allowed to drive again), plus a lengthened probationary period from two years to four.

Police also said that he would only get his license back after “expensive retraining,” which should prove to be an efficient deterrent against this type of behavior in the future. Let’s hope he has learned his lesson.
