This footage shows a learner driver spinning in circles 25 times after losing control of a car while learning how to reverse park at a driving school as an instructor desperately tries to stop the chaos.
The learner, whose identity has not been revealed, was practising how to reverse park when the accident happened at Yongxing Driving School in Nanning, capital of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in South China.
Videos taken by witnesses near the driving course show the white Citroen saloon going round and round in circles while the instructor risks his life trying to stop the car.
However, the teacher is unable to get near the driver’s side door as the car whips around dangerously, its tyres screeching as it goes.
CCTV footage dated 16th June captured the beginning of the bizarre incident as the learner slowly reverses into the parking space but fails to stop, backing over the kerb and then onto the grass.

The panicking learner does not appear to know how to stop the car, which continues to reverse in a circle while increasing in speed by the second.
Before long, the instructor runs into frame and appears to stamp his foot in frustration as the student spins round and round in the vehicle.
At one point, the instructor trips and falls to the ground, but he gets up again and continues to chase the car going in circles for over two minutes.
The vehicle finally stops after 25 turns and the instructor is still unable to get the locked driver’s side door open as the video ends.
An instructor at Yongxing Driving School said nobody was injured during the incident – but it is still unclear what exactly caused the learner to lose control in the manner.
An investigation is still ongoing.
