driving test, son poses as mother to pass test, Heitor Schiave


The driving test examiner grew suspicious of his large hands.

A Brazil man went overboard with his desperation to get his 60-year-old mother her driving licence so much so that he impersonated her.   

Pretending to be his mother, who failed her test three times before, the 43-year-old man wore a floral blouse and a long flowing skirt with full make-up and painted red nails. Heitor Schiave almost tricked the driving test examiner with his feminine style until his plan was foiled.

According to reports in Daily Mail, the car mechanic impersonated his mother, Maria Schiave, to sit the fourth attempt on her behalf. But the driving test examiner grew suspicious of his large hands and unusually high-pitched voice and decided to double check his ID.

The driving test examiner, Aline Mendonça, said, "His disguise didn't register as unusual at first because I had just finished testing my fifth candidate so was a little distracted. However, when I got into the car, I quickly realised this was a man dressed as a woman."

Not convinced, Mendonça who demanded proof, said, "He was doing his best to be feminine and as natural as possible. His make-up was really well done and he looked extremely good."

The man now faces charges of identity fraud and attempting to deceive a government body. 

Surprisingly, social media users have branded his efforts a 'noble gesture' done 'out of love'. While there are others who condemned his actions, citing the risks a 'three times failed' unlicensed driver would pose on the road.
