‘A Test of Endurance’

It was on October 29th 1987 that Owen Davies passed his driving test.  It took a few attempts but determination to achieve won through, despite one ‘Failure Sheet’ looking like a ‘Football Coupon’.

Owen was delighted by his achievement.

It’s not merely the freedom of mobility, but the satisfaction of knowing  that I passed my Test entirely on merit, plus the fact of being 100% responsible for my actions is extremely rewarding.

He also paid tribute to his driving instructors Norman Hadlow and Chris Reed.

To offer thanks for their dedication, friendship and outstanding professionalism, seems totally inadequate, therefore all I can say  is that learning to drive was a challenge, having them in my life was an honour.
