    One of my sups approached me the other day asking if I would be interested in driving air on Saturdays. He said that in Indiana you had to be 21 to obtain a Chauffeur license.

    When I went to the bmv they gave me a paper with this information-

    Chauffeur License Requirements

    • You must be at least 18 years old.
    • Proffer proof of Indiana residency.
    • Show proof of US citizenship or lawful residency status.
    • Own at least one year of driving experience.
    • Pass a chauffeur written test.
    • Pass a standard vision test.
    • Provide a Social Security number
    My question is if there is an age requirement (i.e. 21 like a regular driver) for driving air? Or do you just have to have the license

    I dunno about in NY all you need is a regular Class D License.. Gotta be 21 to get any driving job in the company.

    No such thing as a Chauffeur License license where I'm at. However, it is company policy that you have to be 21 to drive a UPS truck even if it's only saturday air.

    So are you 21? If you ever think about driving full time I would definitly do Saturday air. Gives you a chance to drive without a lot of stops. It's easy money and great experience if you ever lose your mind and want to drive full time.

    Had this same problem myself today as my steward told me they are going to post a Sat. Air driver list up as we just lost one and that I should sign it, I said don't you have to be 21? He said oh yeah I keep forgetting your not 21.

    Stinks cause I really want to sign that list.
