Great-grandmother Laura Thomas is Britain’s oldest driving instructor at the age of 94 and has taught over 1000 learners in her 76 years as a fully qualified driver.
She argues that you are never too old to drive; she has seen big changes in cars and how busy the roads are but believes that the basics of driving haven’t changed.
She has taught grandparents, parents, children and grandchildren from the same family and none of her pupils have taken more than two attempts to pass their test. She has never advertised her services but has enjoyed a steady stream of pupils for almost 80 years. Even though she has cut back on the number of lessons she takes recently, she has no plans to quit driving.
