    Question A careless driver is going to drive that car.

    Hi,


    Active: A careless driver is going to drive that car.

    Passive: That car is going to be driven by a careless driver.

    Is this the correct passive version of the active sentence above? It sounds incorrect to me.

    Re: A careless driver is going to drive that car.

    Both sentences are grammatically correct. I don't think many people are ever going to need to utter them.
