This Is The Only Royal That Doesn’t Have a Driver’s License

 

Among her many privileges, Queen Elizabeth doesn’t have to face the stress of having to pass a pesky driving test. She is the only person allowed to sit behind the wheel in Britain without a driver’s license — and continues to drive at age 91. Last week, she was photographed behind the wheel of a green Jaguar while driving from church service at the Royal Chapel in Windsor Park. At age 19, the then-princess learned to master a vehicle at a training center in 1945 while working in the wartime Auxiliary Motor Service. But, as part of the “royal prerogative” – discretionary powers or rights that the sovereign alone enjoys — she has never needed to take a driving test because she is excluded from the regulations and laws governing the road. All the other Royals did have to attend a driving course and pass a test to get their license……….. Ed
