    He is the real hero. Kudos! He just applied his potential of being an experienced driver.
    My dad runs a vehicle hire company, and he helps people in moving and relocation. When I was in the college, I never had deep interest in studies, because I had passion for driving and going for long adventurous drive. One day, I expressed my desire of becoming a trucker in front of my parents, without any hesitation. They cooperated and allowed me to join the company as a truck driver, so that it helps gaining experience.
