    That, Dennis, is because you have to apply for your licence to be renewed at 70. I think you can renew up to 3 months before that date. don't leave it too late, and make sure you get all the...

    Cannot see why the share out should only be at management level. With the real workforce getting short shrift, does that explain why there are so many complaints about the RAC? Certainly not the...

    Renewal of the driving licence has to be done on approaching 70th birthday, then every three years after that. There is no medical, and the driver uses self assessment to make a declaration of...

    Guess you'll be moving to Northern Ireland then, Dennis? That's a bit drastic, so it is.

    I'll let it go this time. Guess he was getting on my nerves with his loud bragging - mostly about coach/bus driving and how he sorted out drivers who annoyed him. Obviously wanted the whole bus to...

    Distracting a bus driver.

    The other day we decided to go into town by bus. Returning by the same method, one of the bus driver's colleagues remained on the platform. During the four miles or so journey, he never stopped...

    I am now in my eightieth, and OH only 2 years behind. Never mind about home visits, we find it difficult to get an appointment within a reasonable time. Since the practice went on line, I get the...

    Can't disagree with that. But the police are still cutting back on front line services. From the government's point of view, how do they evaluate law and order? I get the distinct impression that,...

    Point taken, Beelzebub. Perhaps I shouldn't say this but, the way some of them were crossing their hands in a quite doddery fashion, I was expecting to see them get ravelled up with the wheel.

    Hundred year old drivers.

    That was the programme on ITV last night. It COULD have been interesting. It COULD have been informative. But, as with BBC TV, it was amateurish, biased and totally without any end game. How many...

    At the last count I think it was claimed that there were 1 million cars being illegally on our roads. If these are not being caught, even with tax discs in force, just how is the discontinuation of...

    And so do driver on occasion, Dennis.
    I don't know why you are banging on so about "cyclists must be compelled to get a licence". I think everyone, perhaps with you being the exception, is fully...

    I'm not convinced that discontinuation of the tax disc is a good idea.
    (1) Non-transfer of the road tax will make things difficult for private buyers - possibly two lengthy journeys if buying from a...
