LEARNER driver Dawn Forster celebrated passing her test after almost a decade, more than a thousand lessons - and one "L" of a lot of money!

The 32-year-old hairdresser endured 10 practical tests, four theory tests and spent nine years and more than PS7,000 on exams and tuition behind the wheel.

Her unswerving determination paid off when she heard the words "I'm pleased to say you've passed" for the first time that week.

Dawn, of Saltersgill, Middlesbrough, said: "I was so used to them saying, 'You've failed'. I had to look twice and I kept pinching myself. It's a wonderful feeling."
