Tennis ace Andy Murray has passed his driving test at the first time of asking and with only 2 minor faults.

Days after losing his Wimbledon semi-final to Andy Roddick, Murray commenced a 2 week intensive driving lesson course and warned his mates to ‘stay off the road’.

The world number 3 revealed his driving test success on his Twitter site yesterday. He said, “Sorry for passing my driving test first time this morning. Just two minor faults. Thanks to blaine at adi training for the lessons!”

Steve Tattersall, spokesperson for Driving School Lessons, said, “Congratulations Andy. Passing your driving test with only 2 minor faults is a real achievement when you consider that a learner driver can make up to 15 faults in their driving test and still pass”.

Steve continued, “Near perfect driving test performances are pretty rare. Pupils who do pass make on average 9 faults”.

Over 80,000 fans follow Andy Murray on his Twitter site.

World number 3 and British tennis star Andy Murray has said he will start taking driving lessons once the Wimbledon tournament is over.

According to the Telegraph.co.uk, Murray made a pledge in 2008 to win this year’s Wimbledon and also to pass his driving test.

However, the Wimbledon semi-finalist has yet to commence driving lessons, with the star saying “I’ve been very busy this year and it is a relatively stressful thing to do at the end of a long training day – take driving lessons – especially with the traffic and stuff in London”.

Stuart Vaughan of Driving School Lessons, said, “We wish Andy all the very best for tomorrow’s Wimbledon semi-final and should he wish to take his driving lessons in Southampton we’d be happy to help”.
