Patrick Castell is a remarkable chap. At the age of 74 he’s just completed his first 35 hours of Driver CPC training and gained his Driver Qualification Card.
Unless anyone can prove otherwise, we reckon that Patrick – who’s on the books at Driver Hire Milton Keynes – is the oldest DQC holder in the UK. So why did Patrick put himself through Driver CPC when there are plenty of drivers who use their age and impending retirement as the perfect excuse not to bother?
“I enjoy working and I love driving. I like being useful and I think working keeps you young,” says Patrick. “Driver CPC was really useful because it helps you brush up on all aspects of driving. The way the knowledge was imparted was good too – all the courses were interactive, which really helps keep your attention.”
