“One body, two souls.” The incredible lives of conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel

Brittany and Abby are by law recognised as individuals, with their own passports and birth certificates. So, it followed that they also needed to have separate drivers’ licenses.

The sisters learnt how to drive together, with their driving instructor acknowledging it was a feat of co-ordination, with him not knowing which set of eyes was seeing the road and sending messages to the brain to steer the vehicle.

On their 16th birthday, the twins took two written tests before they both got their own driving license.
