A story that will warm your heart: A 73-year-old grandmother persevered to obtain her first driver’s license after finally passing her test.

Fatimah Hassan, passed her driving test on the second try, having failed the first exam at the Road Transport Department. Haven’t we all?

“I am so grateful to Allah. Words cannot describe my feelings of happiness. It was as if a heavy burden was lifted from my shoulders when RTD announced that I had passed the test.”

Fatimah, we feel you. There are fewer things more liberating than driving down the open road, with the wind on your face, and pressing the gas pedal.

Speaking to Bernama, she told them that, “now that I’ve obtained the license, I feel more confident and do not fear driving in front of authorities anymore.

Wooowww. WOW. Fatimah! You been driving this whole time without a license? You wildin’ gurl.

Respect to you. It’s never too late to follow your dreams, or get on the right side of the law.
