Why oh why was i born in 1988.. if only my folks were more randy a few years earlier..

 

been looking for work and really want to get something that offers alot of driving,

 

Recieved a call from an agency conversation pretty much went;

We have a job where you will be driving cars up and down the country, delivering them to customers and for testers. You'l be working for Audi, VW, Mercedes, Porchse, and BMW.

 

 

First thing i thought... GREAT! absolutly perfect... next...

 

The wage starts at 20k a year, the hours are flexible and you'd only be working 4 days a week... 25k if you wanted to work 6

 

Again... Fantastic..... Then....

 

The only thing you need is a License with less than 6 points in 3 years... (I have 3 points in 4 yrs driving) and to be at least 25 years of age for insurance purposes

 

 

Im 22! DAMN!

 

Are there any driving jobs out there for an under 25?

They are fairly rare... Some haulage companies were putting younger people through heavy goods tests about a year or so ago due to a shortage of young drivers but now things have changed.

 

It's much like finding finding a hire car for under 25s... Not many can insure you.

And when they can insure you, they want more years experience than you've had your licence for! :blink:

 

Our works van (a fairly rapid short wheelbase Transit) is insured for anyone who works for our company who has a driving licence... ...and is over 25!

...I'm coming up for 23 :vangry:

 

My boss even rubbed the salt in the wound... "Phil! You've got a driving licence?... Good, your now insured on the van... Oh wait, your under 25?... maybe not then! HA!!" :evil:

 

Keep looking though! You'll find one if you look hard enough!

there are some, for example im only 23 and have been driving hgv's for the last 2 years then a sprinter for 2 years before that, our company insurance covers anyone with the relevent license over 18years old, we only have that policy cos years ago they had so many claims only 2 companies would insure em and for astronimical prices!

 

i think last years renewal was ITRO £45k!

 

that covers our 7 hgv's, 1 sprinter, 4 reps cars and 3 directors cars plus any vehicle loaned or hired to/by us!

if there was such a job, i'd be doing it lol

 

 

you can get the train, but your wages includes return travel costs. Hitch hiking is where there 'earn' £20k ;)

I was just about to suggest Tesco Dotcom Delivery (they get more per hour than Asda drivers do, 10% discount, free shares, etc).

 

When I joint it was 3 years driving and over 21, think its more relaxed now, well is at our store.

The lady on the phone did specify all you return travel would be reimbursed and was seperate to the wage...
