A 79 -year-old British adult has passed his driver’s permission experiment for the first time, but he didn’t make love for himself.
Keith Limbert finally came behind the motor because his wife of 58 years, Anne, suffered a stroke lately and could no longer go around on her own.
“My wife drove me around for 40 years, she overtook first time in 1972 and I didn’t know how good I had it, ” Limbert told SWNS.
He said she used to chauffer to the horse race where he could have a cup( or two) without having to worry about driving home.
But getting the license wasn’t easy.
Limbert said that he spent “a fortune I don’t have” on 40 tasks, and that he miscarried the test on his first two tries, once for moving. He thanks his “brilliant instructor” for his eventual success.
“I make Anne out every day to have a chocolate and a scone, either to a plot centre or somewhere else. We would go stir crazy if we were stuck in the house all week, ” the Garforth resident said.
Along with are working with complications from the motion, Anne is campaigning breast cancer for the second largest go and Limbert can now take her to medications, but it’s important for him that she can go “anywhere where life is going on” and “watch the world go by.”
Limbert is himself a colon cancer survivor and lifts forces and bikes to stay fit. His daughter encouraged him to take up driving while he’s still healthy, and says it has given the couple a brand-new lease on life.
