OAP flipped car on driving test after hitting accelerator instead of brakes

A 63-year-old woman has failed her driving test in specatular fashion… and almost killed herself and the evaluator in the process.

Video of a shocking moment from the unnamed woman's driving test has gone viral after she mistook the accelerator for the brakes.

CCTV footage showed the woman who was taking her test in Lanus, Argentina, going full force over a grassy embankment before swerving onto another one, hitting a lamppost and flipping the car.

She appears to try and stop the car at first, but ended up speeding up.

Emergency services were called and she was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The status of the person assessing her is unknown, but it is safe to say they were not impressed.

Video of the incident went viral online, with one calling her driving skills “not good”, while another person tweeted that they are “sure she will pass in the next test”.

Despite the woman's age, she is not the eldest person to take a driving test.

In the UK, that honour goes to Eileen Ash from Norfolk.

She was aged 105 when she passed her driving test.

Although she had a full licence given to her in the 1930s, she never actually took a full driving test, as anyone driving before 1934 didn't need to have one.

Driving tests only came into force on June 1, 1935.

It was widely reported that she was driving a yellow mini when she was 103, still without taking a test.

She said at the time: “I love driving, and just being free I think – being on four wheels and going where I want to go.

“For my age, I’m pretty lucky. I haven’t many aches and pains although my knees are beginning to creak a bit, but you put up with those sorts of things.”
