London (ES)Rod Stewart's roadie sat his driving test for him. The 68-year-old singer's road manager Peter Saunders volunteered to get behind the wheel and take the exam after tiring of driving the 'Sailing' hitmaker around London, and Rod says it was an ''easy deception'' to pull off in 1967. He wrote in his autobiography: ''In the days before photographic licences this was a fairly simple deception to pull off.

''Pete set off to the test centre, signed in as Mr Roderick Stewart of Highgate and took my test. ''And I passed, I'm pleased to say. To this day I have never taken a driving test in Britain.'
