Then become a hero and do the minibus driving test.

We always seem to have many drivers then they all disapear, we don't want that to happen, so the more the merrier.

It's easy to pass and you get to meet Fred.

Just go to the union (activities centre down stairs) see the nice lady behind the counter (Leonie) who'll make you fill out a form and will also need both parts of your driving license.

It'll cost you 15 to do the test but the club will refund you when you pass (if you fail Fred will either tell you not to bother or you'll need to pay for the retest out of your own pocket -but I passed first time some how!)

if you are going to do the test, it's a good idea to have a practice in an empty campus car park before/after a trip when we have a bus... ask matt about it - he'll be happy to sort you out :D

Pop in to the union and ask, I can't see why they won't take a Euro one though.

I think theres a special form to fill out if you are a 'non-standard driver', but it will only take you 5 minutes

Did you not have a minibus licence from back in the stone age? I just email them before splosh this year and gave them the number on my ancient laminated licence and they sent me back a current uni minibus licence.
It wasn't me - it was Blondie!
