The horse was lean and lank, mis/ortune seem'd his lot; He got into a dri/ted bank, and zoe, we got upsot.

Just get a bobtailed bay, two-lorry ]or his speed; Then hitch him to an open sleigh, and crack! you'll take the lead." REFRAIN: "Jingle, bells/ Jingle, bells/ Jingle all the way!

Application to be licensed is made to the Driver License Examiner in the county in which the person desiring the license resides. When application is made, the applicant must be able to furnish identification or proof of name and age. This identification is usually in the form of a certified copy of the applicants' birth certificate, A vision test is then performed using a standard chart or other standard vision testing equipment. If vision does not meet minimum standards, the applicant will be given a form for an eye specialist to complete. The written test, or rules test, comes next. Rules for safe driving and laws affecting drivers are covered on this test. Persons who are unable to read may request an oral test. After all other parts of the testing program are success- fully completed, the driving test or road test is given. Persons taking the road test are required to furnish a vehicle which has all equip- ment required by law in good working order. Upon passing this last test, the applicant is given a form which is taken to the License Commissioner or Judge of Probate. When this form is presented along with required fees, a picture of the applicant will be made and the Alabama Driver'sLicensewillbe issued. Only this last step is different from what an Alabama driver may have experienced in the past. Because of the computerized equipment and new license format, licenses are issued instantly rather than a temporary permit being issued and the license card mailed at a later time. Persons wishing to obtain a non-driver identification card apply in the same manner as persons obtaining a driver's license. Proof of identity is required for the non-driver identification card as it is for the driving license. When application forms are completed, they are returned to the License Commissioner or Judge of Probate along with required fees. A picture of the applicant is made and the card, similar to the driver's license card but bearing "Non-Driver" prominently, is issued. TRI - CITY RESCUE SQUAD REPORT December 6, 7, 8 - no runs.
