Editing a Sentence

Hi there, Ola!! Please help me correct my sentence to see if it is grammatically correct. "Driver is taking the wrong way out".
What I mean for that is, the driver is passing through the wrong way. Is that correct? If not, give me some right words. Please help. Thanks and God bless you all.

Hi Ryle,

Grammatically, your sentence seems great, except for one thing:

"The driver is taking the wrong way out."

(You can read more about the/a/an and when to use them at my English Grammar Articles section.)

Now, your phrasing (the choice of words) is right or wrong depending on what you mean to say.

If you mean to say that the driver is driving out of some place, and it's the wrong way out, than you are totally fine!

This has nothing to do with grammar

This has nothing to do with grammar, but everything to do with "context" Here are some suggestions:

The driver was on the wrong lane.

He drove passed me on the opposite lane.
