The episode begins with a perfectly normal day at the Krusty Krab. The customers, however, are praising the Krabby Patties which makes Mr. Krabs think they paid extra but they did not. Mr. Krabs finds tears in a Patty, Patties without buns, and Patties with only buns and no meat inside. Mr. Krabs asks why with Squidward saying that SpongeBob failed his boating exam and that is why he is crying. Mr. Krabs goes to the kitchen to check. SpongeBob tells everything that happened, so Mr. Krabs offers to give him lessons for more money and shorter time. He mentions teaching Pearl how to drive to make Spongebob feel more comfortable.
During the first attempt, they get in a boat outside the Krusty Krab but SpongeBob reverses instead of going forwards, causing them to crash. Mr. Krabs says it is a simple mistake.
During the second attempt Mr. Krabs takes SpongeBob to a massive parking lot to practice on but SpongeBob reverses again and crashes into the doors of the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs tells SpongeBob to drive forward slowly but ends up pulling the whole Krusty Krab wall off. Mr. Krabs checks the damage and totals up the cost in an upset manner. Mr. Krabs thinks for a moment then gets an idea.
During the third attempt, Mr. Krabs thinks that if SpongeBob is by his house he will be more comfortable. His vocabulary even puts him to sleep only for SpongeBob to be woken up. Even SpongeBob cannot drive to Patrick's house without crashing into the rock. Mr. Krabs ends up flying into the Krusty Krab
During the fourth attempt, Mr. Krabs says he will give a signal but as soon as he says the words "Put her into gear," he crashes into the Krusty Krab yet again.
During the fifth attempt Mr. Krabs is already exhausted but before they start, SpongeBob gives in which gives Mr. Krabs an idea. In order to get the hang of it, they practice on a simulator arcade machine. SpongeBob thinks he has mastered it but yet again he manages to somehow destroy the Krusty Krab (This time, it is the roof in which he falls inside).
During the sixth attempt, SpongeBob manages to crash into the Krusty Krab sign, knocking it over.
During the seventh attempt it starts off smoothly but yet SpongeBob slides up some kind of metal ramp and ends up hitting the backside of the sign. The sign bounces them back into the roof, destroying the Krusty Krab yet again.
During the eighth attempt, they manage to go through the roof and out through the doors of the Krusty Krab. Then they appear out of nowhere, destroying the Krusty Krab yet again.
During the ninth attempt, they crash into a sign. As they keep on driving, lots of Bikini Bottomites are swerving in and out so they can avoid SpongeBob's reckless driving. They spin out of control, almost about to crash into the Krusty Krab but strangely, they do not. However, the Bikini Bottomites do, causing the Krusty Krab to be once again destroyed (This time, it is completely destroyed).
The scene transitions to Mr. Krabs looking really unhappy. He is holding the bill as SpongeBob crashes into the Krusty Krab for the tenth time. The repair man enters again to raise up the price on the bill.The scene transitions again as SpongeBob apologizes. Mr. Krabs says he is doing it all wrong and thinks that SpongeBob does well when there is a lot of damage potential, so he takes SpongeBob to the most dangerous road in Bikini Bottom: the double roundabout. SpongeBob is so nervous that he does not want to do it. So Mr. Krabs literally proves that even Gary could do it by letting Gary drive the boat through the roundabout. A few seconds past and he made it with flying colors. Now it is SpongeBob's turn. He is just about to take the wheel when the Police show up. Apparently, it is against the law to let a snail or any other animal drive a boat, especially in dangerous places. But Mr. Krabs only makes it worse after he claims he taught Pearl to drive without permission or a license. Mr. Krabs thinks he is getting a ticket but then realizes he is sentenced to be taught at Mrs. Puff's Boating School.
