Emma French, 20, of Livingston said her water broke about 4 a.m. on Aug. 30 and she decided to take the 8:40 a.m. driving exam when the baby did not immediately come, The Mirror reported Tuesday.
"Everyone was telling me to go to the hospital but I had waited so long for my driving test, I was determined to do it," French said.
French said she kept her contractions, which were about 10 minutes apart, a secret from the examiner and drove herself to the hospital after passing the test.
"I didn't dare tell the examiner I was in labor in case he made me cancel the test. The nurses in the hospital were very confused because I was getting congratulations cards for both my baby and my driving test. When I told them, they were all in shock. They couldn't believe it," she said.
Baby Eva MacFarlane was born that night, French said.
