This is it Orinoco. A collegue has helped me to improve my forward observation skills and thus improve my driving. It has taken TRAINING (informally) to realise that driving is more about planning and observation than simply steering, braking and accelerating. I've also been with colleagues who cannot maintain a professional image by blasting the horn at someone who may have cut across them etc. We do need to be driving from the same book, and the IAM test is the ideal answer.

Looking on the HA contracts page, no such thing exists - unless it is being done under existing contractual arrangements and to my knowledge none exist with MP anymore since TLC took over.

Also, MouchelParkman no longer exit. Mouchel split from Parkman some time ago are they are two separate entities iirc.

Did this HATO advanced driving issue ever get sorted out?

If yes, who is it now done by?

Have all HATOs now passed the advanced driving test or the equivalent?

Problem is Rog that there are thousands of rumours a week in HA circulation. Driving should have been top of the agenda but seems to have been ommitted.

The budget for this has been approved and training will be rolled out in 2010/11.

Truth not rumour.

Every rumour I have heard has been the truth and I guess it is for a moment.
