Thank's everyone! I still have one more test which is next Monday and it basically tests you on the daily occurrences of bus driving... should be fine! and a days classroom work on the 26th then I'm all set! Can't wait!

You mean having some idiot walking into the road and hammering on the door at traffic lights, hoping you'll let him on, or a useless woman complaining that she has to collapse her wheelchair , containing only her shopping, to let a wheelchair on ?

That is wonderful, never thought I would be keen to see photo's of a Big Red Bus, mind waited often enough for a Midland Red to Elmdon Heath to see my Mom's folks.
So proud of your boy Lyn and justly so!
Cheers Tim

It's a big day tomorrow for Tom and our son Charlie.
Charlie is applying for the return of his licence which he lost for Drink Driving. He could have applied long ago but he chose to defer.
Fortunately he was not guilty of causing any accident or injury to anyone, he was stupid and drove when having lost his right to and copped it fair and square.
He now needs to drive as he is the carer of his girl friend who is a victim of crime who was left for dead by her attacker. Eddie will require treatment for the rest of her life and requires the use of a wheelchair which complicates travel by public transport and taxies.
Charlie himself is in poor health so they would really benefit by having a car and incidentally he is 49 and Eddie 52.
So lets hope we all get good results tomorrow.
Thanks for asking Lyn my wife and I are OK (for the state we are in!) and trust this finds you likewise.
Cheers Tim

Thanks Lyn, Sorry to say that Charlie's appeal has been adjourned to a date unknown, which is a bit of a shame but life's a bit like that.
Hope things went better for Tom.
