Why "The policeman is driving the car " is not correct?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CivisRomanus

In order to tell whether 'is driving' is correct or not, the sentence should be spoken within a certain context.
Since Duolingo's sentences do not provide a context, I personally think that 'is driving' should be accepted, although it is not a literal translation.

In GB we call a police officer a 'policeman'.
