Remember the hard work it took to get your driver’s license? First, you had to pass a test to get your learner’s permit. Then, after months of practicing driving, there was another test to prove your knowledge of signs, laws and behind-the-wheel skills. And once you got your license, it wasn’t really over – there would be many hours spent in the Department of Motor Vehicles in the years to come, renewing tags, passing inspections and keeping your account up to date.
That’s probably why the 97-year-old woman in this story was so excited when her doctor cut up her license. No more waiting in lines or fussing with renewals … a lucky break, right?
