* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeGzWrbtTHQ one of Techmoan's Muppet skits]], it's mentioned that the YouTube Pedant had his driving license revoked after [[NoodleIncident somehow]] managing to run over an undisclosed number[[note]]more than six, as six had partially recovered[[/note]] of people... ''inside a UsefulNotes/McDonalds''.

* ''Literature/StephaniePlum'', of Janet Evanovich's eponymous series, might be a decent driver, but she is ''death'' on cars. Hers get destroyed almost [[OnceAnEpisode once a book]], albeit usually for reasons beyond her control such as bombs and fires. On the other hand, Grandma Mazur, once she finally learned to drive, managed to rack up enough moving violations to lose her license. In ''five'' days. The few who've ridden with her frequently complain about problems like whiplash from abrupt stops, etc.

Ranger, Stephanie's mentor/UST generator, is cool with giving her cars as he writes it off as 'entertainment'.

** [[TheSneakyGuy Tobias]] turns out to be an even worse driver than Marco, [[HypocriticalHumor who promptly calls him on it]]. This is also excused: Tobias is typically a hawk, so he's out of practice even with basic human movement.

* Launchpad [=McQuack=] of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' and ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' is of the Flies Like Crazy variety. He's actually a very skilled pilot and capable of some rather insane feats of aerobatics, but it's the [[CaptainCrash landings]] you really have to watch out for.

* Elwood Blues from ''Film/TheBluesBrothers''. From the bridge jump at the beginning to his awesome parking skills (he flips the car ''around'' instead of backing up), Elwood is CrazyAwesome. But no mention of Elwood's driving would be complete without [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcv4T9Auy0U&feature=related the mall scene]]. And if that's not enough, during the film's climactic ten-plus minute [[HotPursuit chase scene]], he manages to [[https://youtu.be/eGu2camh0WA reverse his car off an incomplete highway drop in a way that makes his car pull a backflip of all things]] over some Illinois Nazis who are chasing him, which only astounds them, and makes them completely miss the fact that they are running out of road, making them [[AbsurdAltitude launch off the incomplete highway into the air, before plummeting from a height that rivals the height of the Chicago Sears Tower]].

* Sean from ''TheFastAndTheFurious: Tokyo Drift'' moved across 4 different states and ended up in Japan because he just ''loves'' speeding through the road in his 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo.

** Continued in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', as even without Shepard, Ryder is definitely a graduate from whatever driving school Shepard went to. Get a little too close to a cliff edge, and:
-->'''Drack:''' '''''[[AtomicFBomb SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTT!!!]]'''''
*** Drack is a 1400-year-old krogan. Keep in mind, not even Grunt or Wrex freaked out at Shepard's driving. That speaks volumes.

* Maya Amano, from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' duology. In the first game, ''Innocent Sin'' the party lets Maya drive the blimp from the Air Museum and she crashes it. She then tries to drive a boat in the last dungeon in and crashes into every rock along the way before the party asks Tatsuya to take over for her. She did so badly that its infamy persists across the AlternateUniverse in the sequel ''Eternal Punishment'', where Ulala tells her, "Oh no, you don't! I've had enough of your driving!" And later in the game Tatsuya insists that Jun drive the blimp instead. And when the time came for ''someone'' to drive a minisub, Tatsuya immediately volunteers so Maya won't even try. This is, apparently, due to Maya thinking her driving license applies to ''any'' vehicle, and her belief she's good enough to pull it off. The screams say otherwise.
