Further details

Simon is about to sit his first driving test, and Will, Jay and Neil are very excited by the new possibilities that having a car will bring. As soon as Simon has passed they plan to visit Thorpe Park to ride roller coasters and chase girls. There is one problem though - Simon is a rubbish driver.

Miraculously Will does pass his test and the boys set off on their first road trip in Simon's new car. Their journey is hampered by being unexpectedly held up in a funeral cortege but they eventually arrive in one piece. Disaster strikes when Simon rips off his new car's door while parking.

Will is determined not to let this ruin their trip and convinces him to at least ride the roller coasters before leaving to get it fixed. Once inside the pleasure park, Will soon wishes they had never come as he totally disgraces himself on the roller coaster.
