Seem the same in every industry, Plenty of interest, But the cost/Hassle of Getting a Ticket/ driving licence, etc puts them off.
There was a lad years ago doing the rounds,working as a relief, had every ticket under the sun. He couldn't drive a Wagon to save his life, much the same when operating plant apparently .
