My Mom didn't learn to drive until she was 45. I think she failed her test at least 3 times due to trouble maneuvering the 3-point turn in a big-finned '50's car (kept hitting the curb). She routinely drove with her right foot on the gas and her left foot on the brake
When she finally passed, Dad bought her a crazy souped up car that he got cheap at some auction...a Muntz Jet. I remember it was royal blue with cream leather interior and a cream leather convertible top. She quickly got rid of it for something that wasn't so fast and flashy...a Nash Rambler (definitely more "her").
PA currently requires parallel parking to pass the driving test (they did not in 1970 when I got my license). I would fail today. Can't park worth a darn...need a landing strip. I am persona non grata at the Wal-mart across the highway due to ripping off the bumper of a store security guard's car while driving my beast of a Land Cruiser. I hadn't driven the car for awhile and was clumsy in my turning.
