Errr, our GP does them - prices up on the noticeboard - was interested when I noticed (the notice LOL) earlier this year to see a lower price for driving professionals which is good I spose but again beats pensioners over the head for daring to be alive and insulting the human race for wishing to drive anything with an engine worth calling one, after retirement.

Sorry can't recall Quanto exactly, but for some reason the sum of 49 has popped into my head.
dshague and tinkering like this.

I think they are around 40 - have a word with a cabbie in your area, as they know where is the cheapest place to get them done.

Did you buy that big RV then Jim, That you was telling us about.

You can drive up to 7.5 ton on a normal license, well I can anyway.

Hi,
Three years ago when I wanted to protect my 'C' Licence I obtained the required forms and went to see my Doctor his charge would be 80 annually, I then had to see my optician 'deep breath' because I had cataract replacements( now 50X50 Vision ) I needed a Macular X Ray . Cost 140 annually. But..... if I falled that I would also lose my Car license.
So in order to keep my C Licence it would cost me 220 annually to drive over 3.5 Ton plus I could??? be put of the roads all together.
That was a no brainer so I still drive our Van and Car and keep my licence which as always been clean, not even a parking tkt in 58 yrs.
Old Age MMmmmmm.
Best Regards Mac
