Originally from Italy, she and her husband Remomoved to the South West three years ago after nearly 50 years living in South Africa.

Mrs Coppo-Andreone said as they aged she felt it would be beneficial for her to have a licence.

“We are getting older and I would hate for Remo to get sick and I couldn’t help by driving him to the doctors,” she said.

“I’ve never had a licence in my life but one day I said to myself, I must try to do this.”

Mrs Coppo-Andreone said getting behind the wheel for the first time was a little difficult but she enjoying getting the hang of driving.

“I figured it was better to try and get my licence late than to not try at all,” she said.

“I kept telling Remo he had to let me drive him around and into town so that I could practice.”

She said all the practice made her calm on the day of the test and it went well.
