Confessions of a Driving Instructor

Continuity mistake: During the car chase, when we first see the pipe band marching down the road, there is a black Ford Cortina Estate parked in the road. But when the two cars speed past the band, the Cortina has moved into a driveway.

Visible crew/equipment: After the rugby match, when Mr. Truscott gets into his Bentley, you can see the camera lights reflected in the car window.

Revealing mistake: The white Datsun, that passes the Bentley during the car chase at the driving test centre, can be seen in the next shot parked in the background.

Other mistake: At the end of this film, at the driving test centre, a blue Austin 1800 is parked out of the way in the background, but in the next scene it is involved in the first of the collisions.

Continuity mistake: During the sequence at the end of the film, when the car chase ends with several collisions at the driving test centre, the vehicles parked in the background change positions between shots.

Continuity mistake: A the end off the film, when the Bentley crashes into the office at the driving test centre it is dry and sunny, then in the next shot the ground is all wet.

Factual error: Several times during the film Sid and Tim talk of taking learner drivers out at the same time. This would be difficult as their driving school only has one car.
