Driving in the army?

#1
Whats the crack with learning to drive in the army?

Can you apply to be taught at the end of phase two or is it automatically sorted out for you?

Own up, you just want a free car licence.. :wink:

Not much future for an army driver though. By the time they've 1st paraded the wagon, filled in a FMT1005 and fault book for the bulb they had to change, filled in the 1st parade check sheet, filled in the work ticket and opened up a drivers hours sheet , it's time for him to go off duty... :D

Sounds like someone works in the MT in a Inf Bat (far too much MT knowledge for a rifleman!). I'll remember your flippant remarks next time I'm protecting a convoy full of your mail/bullets/fuel along a MSR, DAILY! Yes DAILY! Some of your more experience Inf soldiers will tell you that whilst you are driving in Iraq/Afghan you a sitting duck.
Whilst I fully respect my colleages in the Inf, just imagine driving a Fuel tanker down a MSR full of potential roadside IED's.
Were all in the same team, there are many more trades in the Army that don't even leave camp!

More a dig at the stupid amount of pointless paperwork umbrellas that a driver has to fill in before turning the key. Not a swipe at your trade mate..

RIP to the recent DVR death in Telic. (Which sadly proves my point!)
