King of the road
ARTHUR Joyner is hoping he will still be driving when he turns 100 next year.
The 99-year-old Rockhampton great-grandfather is among the oldest licensed drivers in Queensland.
He learned to drive around North Rockhampton as a teenager and applied to get his licence in 1927, aged 21.
"My mother had bought a car and the mechanic drove it home.
"He went with me on the Monday to get my licence, except I wasn't tested like people today. The man asked the mechanic if I could drive and he said 'Yes', and that was that.''
In 78 years of driving Mr Joyner has owned eight cars, all of them manuals.
His latest is a 1981 brown and beige five-door Corolla.
Mr Joyner also spent about 30 years driving buses around Rockhampton. .
