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.
