The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has launched a major inquiry after it was revealed that a woman in the Black Country passed her Driving Test at the very first attempt.
Kristina Mann of Upper Gornal in Dudley came through the test with flying colours, raising eyebrows in Parliament, and causing a national outcry amongst motoring organisations and drivers alike.
Alan Anderson, chief executive of the AA, said:
"This is madness!. Whoever heard of a woman passing first time? It's a disgrace!"
RAC spokesman Ernest Driver, who, himself, took four attempts to pass his test back in 1972, said:
"This has to be a mistake. The woman concerned must have turned up wearing a mini-skirt or those thigh-length black leather boots - probably with side lacing."
Bernard Blind, the man who administered Miss Mann's test, was adamant that she passed the test fairly and squarely:
"She wore a mini-skirt and thigh-length black leather boots - they really do it for me!
Womens Rights groups are celebrating the news and hope to mark the event with a mass drive-around in London later this year.
Police in the capital have warned all safety-minded drivers who place a value on their lives, to listen for an official announcement of the date of the drive-around, so that they may stay indoors and avoid being killed.
