Man Without Arms Passes His Test

A 26-year-old man from Riga, Latvia lost both of his arms at the age of six by being hit by a strong electrical current after entering an unlocked electrical unit whilst playing hide and seek.

Despite his disability, he sought to find a driving instructor willing to teach him despite the fact he would need to use his feet to drive the car. On Sunday, he successfully passed his driving test first time and gained a full driver’s licence.

He is only able to drive an automatic car but apart from that can control the car just like any other driver. He uses his left foot to steer the car, resting it on the steering wheel; meanwhile, his right food is used to push the pedals, move the gear stick and turn on the ignition.
