Bonjour Cary, The fact is that "savoir " which means "to know how to " can also be translated by "can " in the sense of a skill. Therefore, though you could also translate this sentence by "Claire knows how to drive", you couls also use "Claire can drive". Thanks to your useful feedback, I decided to add this precision to the main lesson. Merci et à bientôt !
