Justin Bieber Back Behind the Wheel, Politely Asks Paps to Stay Clear

Justin Bieber can joke about it now ... driving over a photog is so a thing of the past.

The Biebs was leaving The Peppermint Club in WeHo -- it took a while for his Mercedes G Wagon to come around to valet, and as the paps gathered ... the tension built.

So you gotta see what happened once Justin's whip arrived, and he got behind the wheel -- the first time he's been in this situation since the accident 2 weeks ago. Let's just say, it looks like both Justin and the photogs have learned their lesson.

Outta the way!
