AN armless Spanish man is hoping to become the first European to pass his driving test using only his feet.
David Rivas, 33, from Madrid was born without a right arm, and only a very small, weak left arm but this has not stopped him from wanting to learn to drive.
Using a specially adapted vehicle driven with a lever instead of a steering wheel, Rivas has been attending a driving school for the last month for an average of nearly 10 hours a day.
Unfortunately he failed his first attempt after making a mistake at a junction. But he intends to try again this week.
According to Rivas he never thought he would be able to drive, until he discovered a driving school in Basauri which uses a vehicle allowing him to steer the car with an extra lever controlled by his left foot.
“I’ve always been mad about cars, ever since I was small,” he said.
