BEFF NEWS: German pensioner drove for 51 years without licence: police

BERLIN (AFP) – German police stopped a 79-year-old man for veering into the wrong lane in his car only to learn he had his driving licence withdrawn half a century ago, authorities said Wednesday.

Officers in the western city of Oberhausen asked to see his licence after the man steered into the oncoming lane while pulling into a grocery store car park.

The pensioner handed over his identity card and car registration but said he had lost the driving licence.
