Clear for takeoff9 February, 2010
You turn your back for five minutes and ten years go by. The DVLA demanded that I renew my licence, which makes it a decade since I got my (distinctly unenthusiastic) hands on a provisional licence and almost as long since I was holding up the Crawley* traffic with turns-in-the-road and reversing-around-corners**.
When my shiny new licence arrived, I found the following categories in the provisional section:
A: ride a large motorbike
B+E : drive a car with a trailer
GH: not listed anywhere in the accompanying booklet
What is GH? With a moment’s thought, it’s obvious: it’s my provisional entitlement to drive a flying car 😀
* Never going back there as long as I live. It’s awful.
** Neither of which, of course, are actually of much use. I guess it’s the thought that counts.
