Young lad's licence excitement
A YOUNG mine worker was over the moon the day after getting his HR truck licence.
The lad aged in his 20s was told that gaining such a licence would enhance his prospects for higher remuneration and promotion.
"I am pretty happy to get the licence and have always wanted to be a truck driver," he said.
The licence will enable him to drive several rigs at the mine but gives him the opportunity to gain employment as a truck driver.
That is his aim in the short term and also get some lessons in a bid for a heavy vehicle licence.
Spy asked him if he would have his picture snapped and a story about it.
But he declined but will certainly agree when he does become a fulltime driver.
