Well, I never found Rogers pass particularly scary.
Sure, it can be a bit slick going down through the snow sheds, but there's a lot scarier places to drive a truck in Canada.
How much of the country have you seen so far cagey?

as many work references as you can get, stating what type of vehicle,what weight and what you were carrying,

doctors letter saying that they believe you have not got a history of alcohol or drug abuse,

might be worth taking your birth certificate.

thank you my good fellow

am planning on taking
1 license and no not the dogs!!
2 subject access report
3 have 2 rreferences at mo, not sure if I can get more for the past 10 yrs, these 2 cover the last 6 so should be enough, but what the hell do i know??? one can only try...
4 birth cert, just to prove it was humans that created me lol lol
5 doc was down the pub when i called so we met up and a few, and he luvs me soo cool there too

still not sure about the drivers abstract, someone on another thread stated " its a complete history of driving from yr dot to now and can be got from DVLA" If i got the paper part and they want more they will have to advise where and how..

Flights booked for mid jan off to lethridge, yes I know the obvious companies but its as good a place as any to start a new life, Its an 8 day trip, car hire at Calgary then potter on down to the Sandman and start knocking doors down!!!

Scooby
but never admitted to knowing scrappy

Just call the DVLA and ask Scoob.
I think it only costs a few quid and it's what the companies want (the one I went to wanted it anyway)
Police record's the same. They'll want it if you're gonna be running South, which I would imagine you will be. Talk to the police for the form and get it done. You'll probably need it.
