A 74-year-old woman from Spain’s northwestern Galicia region has admitted that she has been driving for 53 years despite never having passed a driving test.


The septuagenarian from El Ferrol was finally caught out when her Ford Mondeo was stopped during a routine traffic check by Local Police near her home.

When officers asked for her driving licence she admitted that not only did she not have one, but that she had been driving since the age of 21 without ever having passed a test, reported La Voz de Galicia.

A magistrate in A Coruña ruled that she must undertake 32 days of community service for the crime.

The court heard how until the day in question she had never been stopped and had never even had a minor accident while behind the wheel of a car.
