A motorist celebrated his 90th year by passing his advanced driving test.

Great-grandfather Cyril Treviss, who turns 90 in July, proved that despite his advancing years his driving skills were as sharp as ever when he faced the Institute of Advanced Motorists test.

He received a certificate signed by IAM president Nigel Mansell for his efforts.

Mr Treviss, from Dorchester, has been driving since he was 16 – meaning he has now spent more than 70 years behind the wheel.

He said: “I wanted to do something for my 90th year so I decided to do the test. It’s not too bad, there’s no writing, just driving and questions.”

“It makes you more aware of your driving and other people’s."

Mr Treviss, who has lived in Dorchester his whole life, had no problems in passing first time.

He said: “It is surprising what you see after you have done your test and you see how other people drive.”

Mr Treviss said that he loved driving as it gave him independence, and added: “I’m going to keep driving for as long as possible.”
