How Old is Too Old?

Thank you, everyone, for your replies and advice. This looks to be a good site with honest, straight dope. Won't know for sure of course until I take the plunge and have a year or two under my belt. But my sense is people here shoot straight. Thanx again..

How Old is Too Old?

DCL, you just made my day! I’m 66 and just started my new career last October. This has been a fantastic experience and I’m not at all alone in my situation or opinion. Yesterday I met another driver from my company, Schneider, who is 71 and has only been driving for 6 months. We had so much in common that we are wondering if we might be from the same parents and somehow got split up. Schneider had no hesitation about bringing me on board and treated me with respect and reasonableness. I love my job and I think the challenges I face and all drivers face is vital for my continuing mental and physical health. Perhaps there is a way for us to exchange contact info and I would be delighted to tell you about my experience and what I’ve learned that could help you.

Thanx for that, good news indeed.

So I'm thinking driving would suit me fine but I'm 66 years old and have doubts about getting a job. Don't want to pay for training or head off to a company training site to then get told no thanx, you're not qualified or whatever when the real reason is I'm too old for their tastes. Any advice?
