I don't think there is one...I've changed tires in my auto shop class (teachers and parents bring their cars in sometimes) and then the co-op (or OYAP not sure lol) kids check to make sure it's right but they're only 17 lol.

BTW Cliffy, good luck

I know at Coop and OYAP you get to change the tires and everything else (as I'm doing Coop already lol, and have OYAP at Durham College next year). I'm just not sure about certain workplaces (like Walmart), as they never asked for my or my friends age..

Cheers, Chris!

It's the law over here (atleast it was when I was in the Motor Trade!), that ya have to be 18yrs old or over to change tyres, I seem to remember it being like that at college too, otherwise I would have said it's different for educational purposes and that insurance regulations stop employers from employing people under 18yrs to change tyres...Hope that makes sense lol

Had the interview today......went okay, as well as I expected it to I guess lol. I dunno, I've never been too good with interviws *hopes he done enough*...Infact, the roleplay was easier, if anything, and the report writing (had to write report of the incident we practiced in the roleplaying!) was a doddle, but then I'm experienced in the art of blagging....I mean writing reorts, lol...I'll hear from them in 7 to 10 days apparently, I hope that's not another 2 months like before lol. From what the interviewers said about the job, it makes me even more determined than before!...Alot more professional than I've experienced before, too. I mean, you have to take medicals and training periods and everything, lol

Have fun in the new position. (keep it clean Steven)

Thanx guys. I just have to take a Medical type test next week, but to be honest, unless I'm on drugs it shouldn't be a problem. Other than that, I've been told my start date is 21st July!
