Your analogy is so wrong it's almost pointless trying to correct it.
What you should be comparing, is someone driving a sleek sportscar who
has no idea how to drive, and a professional driver in say F1 or
whatever the US folks have as their #1 professional driving competition
driving the same care.
The non-driver should be taken off the road, be instructed, and then
they should be let back on the road.
PS: Yes, I'm an advocate for licenses, or at least some basic tests,
before one's allowed online.
