Lady driver who had ‘L’ of a wait

`A woman from Devon who finally passed her driving test after 23 years is now hoping to use her wealth of experience to help others.

Maria McCarthy from Sidmouth ripped up her L-plates after taking about 250 lessons, which cost her between £2,000 and £3,000.

The 42-year-old said getting her licence has given her a “badge of adulthood” and changed her life.

She has now written a book aimed at helping other women succeed.’
