Finally, grandma is allowed to drive

JERUSALEM, March 26 (JTA) — An 82-year-old grandmother of three has become the oldest Israeli to get a driver’s license. After more than three decades and some 35 failed driver’s tests, Shulamit Dizen of Ashdod recently passed her road test and received a license. She originally wanted her license to visit her parents in Tel Aviv. Dizen maintained that she had been a fine driver from the start. “It’s just that I would get nervous during the tests,” she said.
