A learner driver and their passenger were released under investigation on suspicion of drug driving in Huntingdon.
Police stopped the pair in a silver Ford Fiesta while “on a driving lesson” in Ambury Hill on May 25.
The learner driver and his supervisor both failed a roadside drug test for cannabis.
Both men, aged 18 and 45 from Warboys, were arrested on suspicion of drug driving and have since been released under investigation.
In a statement on Policing Huntingdonshire, it read: “Police officers don't normally join you on your driving lesson unless something's gone spectacularly wrong.
“So far this month we've arrested 13 suspected drink/drug drivers across Cambridgeshire.
“Remember, you can report suspected drink or drug drivers 24/7 using our dedicated, confidential hotline on 0800 032 0845.”
