Errol helps educate young drivers
AFTER years in industries on the road, Errol North felt he could make more of an impact educating the young on driving safely.
He is the Southern Downs' new permanent local driving examiner and was about to test five residents for their licence after speaking to the Daily News yesterday.
“I have been working in the driving industry all my life – a bus driver, a truck driver and a courier. You see all the things that happen on the roads and sometimes you shake your head in disbelief,” he said.
Queensland Transport Warwick Customer Service Centre manager Tracey North said examiners from Toowoomba had to come out to test for the past two years due to budget constraints.
“It is great to have Errol on site now as we can manage it locally,” Ms North said.
Mr North has been an examiner for about two years and before this role he was a driving trainer.
“I wanted to help kids understand road safety and help them to drive better on our roads,” he said.
Mr North said he was always available for anyone who wanted to come and ask questions about their driving tests.
