Peggy was taught to drive by her grandfather H.J.Dowsing, who himself was a keen early motorist and invented the electric self-starter engine in 1896.
The widow learned how to drive in 1925, 10 years before compulsory tests were introduced, and she even drove herself to school at the tender age of 15.
Peggy, from Ferndown, Dorset, now drives a Daihatsu Sirion and said: 'I love driving and much prefer it to walking'.
Peggy, who has a grown-up son, has had 11 cars over the years including three Hondas, six Fords and a Vauxhall.
She was a member of the League of Experienced Motorists for 59 years and even tried 'blind' driving on one occasion.
She added: 'I won a competition driving blind once. It wasn't on the M1 but in a field.
'We had to drive towards a target. Everyone else was going so slowly but I like speed so I got there first.'
I do like the bit about the "grown-up son". He would be a slow developer if he were not. Acknowledgements to Freewheeler for his diligent trawling of the net for this.
By the way, I grew up in Christchurch, Dorset, in the 1970s, and learned to cycle in the back lanes there, on the borders of the New Forest and up the Avon valley. But I rarely cycled to Ferndown, about 8 miles away, because:
1) There was nothing of the slightest interest there; it was full of old people, and,
2) The roads there were terrifying.
