I think we had someone come in who was in their 70's? i can't remember. This field, older guys/gals seam to get in with little to no trouble at all.

Just a quick note Dan, to let you know I was 55 when I first started training as a truck driver. I'm from England......never been in a big rig before I arrived here and I'm used to driving on the opposite side of the road to you ;-) .......and I still made it through with room to spare. I've been driving for over a year now....been to all 48 states and now driving into Canada as well. Just as a side note......I have a mate of mine that drives for the same company as I do that's 83.....and he stated at 82!

Best of luck my friend.
