    i think that would rule most of us out, Joan.

    Happy scooting :D
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Yippee!
    I can do all those things so I'm fit to drive!
    On a serious note I do think when we reach a certain age we should have to take a test of some sort to see if we are in fact capable of driving.
    I'm not suggesting a full driving test they do now but one to show we do have our full faculties , there is no way I'd pass the driving test they do now I did mine 23 years ago and it was so much easier then plus I'm useless at multi choice questions!

    Hmmmm, that's interesting Joan, thank you. I can't do the first two but I can manage the third. I also tried doing all three at the same time too. :wink: I'm not ready to sell Bea just yet so I will carry on - carefully. :) DD

    Well that just went and put the last nail in my provisional licence's coffin! I can't do none of those without wobbling and falling over! As well as not being able to swim as well as having licence taken away from me because of having Epilepsy!! :(

    I can see what you mean Maria - I definitely can't stand on one foot these days. Yes we didn't have a theory test, but they don't have to do ALL manoeuvres now like we had to. just two and also they are allowed reverse beepers if they're fitted!!

    I would have LOVED reverse beepers :(

    Hehehe!

    Thanks Joan - you be careful in your scoota :wink:

    Love

    oh dear Joan, I am going to have to be extra careful on my clatter buggy. I handed in my license a couple of years back, with the drugs I take it is a wonder I know where my nose it. :roll: :lol:
