David Filmer: Driving
Here David talks about being able to get his driving license at sixteen.
TranscriptThe moment that I hit sixteen and was able to get a driving licence was a major moment for me, in terms of opening up my whole social life and ability to get out and go and do things and I was very lucky, one to have the privilege of being allowed to drive a year earlier than most teenagers, being able to get a driving licence at sixteen rather than seventeen, because of my disability.
