That I did bickern, so simple.

By the way, when did this insistance that any reply must conform to the thread title, this is a forum (a formal term for conversation) that conversation could run off a tangent in real life. Who is the person that is driving everyone mad with Off Topic nonsense, who runs this forum???

Re: A heartwarming story

At some point along the years, we also had a Cortina, same colour Ted. Beautiful car, but got trashed.

My Dad was in hospital. Mother couldn't drive, so hubby went after work to pick her up and take her to the hospital. On the way home on an unlit dual carriageway in Chelmsford, a woman in a Mini shot out of a gap in the central reservation where there was a right turn and smashed into the Cortina. Hubby never felt comfortable with it after repair, so he sold it.

Re: A heartwarming story

I suppose in fairness regarding Turkish driving licence renewal I should make it clearer;

First, apply for an appointment from your local Nufus office.
Next, get a set of biometric photos, passport style.
Then visit your local GP. The GP will endorse one of the photos, staple it to the health report form and stamp it all.
After that go to a Ziraat bank to pay the fee and get the receipt, you can use any bank but if the communication system is up the creek, it's off to the Ziraat bank.
Lastly attend your appointment at the Nufus. Hand over the doctors report, receipt for the payment, your old driving licence and your pictures.
They will check your fingerprints with their records and ask you some question. Punch holes in your old driving licence and return it to you, ask you to sign the photo and give you an envelope with a bar code on it. You then go home and wait for the kargo to arrive.

Re: A heartwarming story

Well I have to say that I am impressed with the service, both my new kimlik and driving licence arrived by registered mail today. My first licence only covered me to drive a car and small motorbike, this new one covers almost every kind of vehicle including a tractor, buses and lorries are prohibited though.
