Adriver’s ed­u­ca­tion stu­dent tak­ing her fi­nal test be­hind the wheel of a car plowed through the front of the driver in­struc­tion school build­ing last Fri­day morn­ing in Belle­vue, po­lice said.

No one was in­jured, but the stu­dent failed the test.

Of­fi­cers re­sponded to the scene, in the 14100 block of North­west 20th Street in Belle­vue, af­ter re­ceiv­ing a re­port of a car crash­ing into a build­ing, said Seth Tyler of the Belle­vue po­lice.

A pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that the stu­dent, a woman in her 20s who is new to the coun­try, was just fin­ish­ing up her fi­nal driv­ing test and was pulling into the park­ing space in front of the driv­ing school when the crash hap­pened.

“Un­for­tu­nately, that stu­dent mis­took the gas pedal for the brake, send­ing the car into the build­ing,” Tyler said.

“She was do­ing great up un­til that very last part ... (and she) did drive through a plate glass win­dow, so that was a fail on the test,” Tyler added.

The dam­age to the build­ing is mainly cos­metic. The win­dow will have to be re­placed, but there is no struc­tural dam­age. There also is some dam­age to the car.

Tyler said he be­lieves the stu­dent will get an­other change to take the driv­ing test.

“Hope­fully she can get more in­struc­tion and a chance to retest,” he said.
