105-year-old passes driver's test 'with flying colors'

Edythe Kirchmaier, 105, first started driving in the 1920s, when Prohibition was still in effect.


A 105-year-old California woman who has maintained a perfect driving record for 85 years just passed her most recent driver’s test, according to Foxnews.com.

Edythe Kirchmaier took her first driver’s test in the 1920s, and since then she has not received a ticket of any kind, the source said. She passed her latest driver's test last week on her 105th birthday.

"I think I’m a pretty good driver," Kirchmaier told Foxnews.com. "I feel safe about getting my driver's license renewed because I’ve never had an accident." 

Originally from Ohio, Kirchmaier has worked as a volunteer for a local non-profit, Direct Relief International, for the past 40 years.

According to Facebook.com, she’s the oldest person with an active Facebook profile.
