Driving Licenses

Discussion in 'Cars, Bikes 'n AFVs' started by Running Man, Aug 12, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. anyone here got the full lot??

    and i mean the full lot?

    what do i mean by full lot??

    i mean passed every driving license category and hold a UK DVLA license with every single driving category you can possibly have?

    i seem to have collected up quite a collection of licenses from my time at leconfiled 2002 but im not quite there yet, just need motorbike category and ive got THE LOT.

    should we have some kind of letter of congratulations from general sir commandant CO of driving once one has obtained the lot??

    :money::money:
     
  2. I believe you get a scented card from Director RLC, a Fray Bentos pie, and a sash for your No 2's proclaiming you as 'Mr Logistics 2013'.
     
  3. Trooper. He invented driving, you know.
     
  4. You're just talking complete shite and you know it! It's a Peters Pie, NOT a Fray Bentos!!
     
  5. I thought it was the wheel?
     
  6. If you are one of the Army LGV 1 Drivers I trained at Waterbeach, to possibly stand in if the Fuel Drivers went out on strike, you might hold the License but you couldn't drive a feckin' Artic to save your life!
