Dear Owner//Driver


Owner Driver - - Owner / Driver -

I am writ­ing in with some­thing I have found be­ing a younger driver un­der the age of 25.

I have been on in­ter­state now for al­most two years run­ning Syd­ney, Mel­bourne, Adelaide and Bris­bane, but it was not un­til re­cently that the com­pany I am work­ing for wanted to send me to Perth.

For me to have the abil­ity to do this, the com­pany had to ap­ply for the next level of in­sur­ance for the eli­gi­bil­ity to be able to go across the pad­dock.

Sadly, the ap­pli­ca­tion was de­nied be­cause of my age.

But still to­day, I am won­der­ing how I am able to do up to 5000 to 6000 kilo­me­tres a week, run­ning all hours of the day and night on the east coast, but as soon as it comes to run­ning across to Perth they re­jected the ap­pli­ca­tion.

I am yet to find out what the dif­fer­ence is in run­ning the 5000km to Western Aus­tralia to run­ning 5000km up and down the east coast.

The hardest part these days is not about get­ting a job, it’s about get­ting in­sur­ance to cover you. Daryl Payne Pen­rith, NSW
