Murdoch Troon, an enthusiastic member of the local cycling club, gets involved with Charles Chingford, a local businessman, when the two of them are involved in an accident. Then Murdoch meets Chingford's daughter, Claire, who persuades him to give up the bicycle, buy a sports car, and learn to drive. At first he is horrified, but the thought of dating the attractive Claire, he relents, and takes his first driving lesson. Written by

Did You Know?
Three cars - the large American car that Freddie's first girlfriend drives, Freddie's green Bentley ("The Fast Lady"), and the red sports car that Freddie's second girlfriend drives - all have their real white-on-black number plates covered up by the same white-on-red trade plates with the registration "616 H". Trade plates are used by the motor trade when driving vehicles which are untaxed, and the implication is that Freddie has been "borrowing" the cars and the trade plates from the garage where he works.

The film set that was used for the town centre street changes between scenes: in most scenes there is a side road Westgate Grove between the County Bank and the shop called Brenda's which has the distinctive wooden fascia boards above the windows, but in a few scenes such as the one where Troon and the examiner return to the driving test centre, an extra building has been inserted in the place where this side road is. Also, in the background beyond Wells Cycle Co, some scenes show a building whereas other scenes show a fence. See more
