Out Of Date

I’m a driver of 20 years and a Ltda member.
Love the podcast but this is out of date when it was available to listen to.
I would like to hear another podcast following up the loss to TfL and what we are going to do as a joint effort between the LTDA and UTAG to fight this loss.

Mickey Dolphin ,

Nice work 👍👍

Really enjoyed the podcast.

I’m a green badge, I hope to listen to more of these.

Two years and 11 months is classed as being quick to finish the knowledge. In that case I’m going to blow my own trumpet, I managed it in two years and 6 months and had two kids during that time ( I know, I’m a mug!)
