I'm trying to sort out provisional lorry/bus entitlements on my license, via DVLA form D2. There are boxes to tick indicating membership of the armed forces, including one for "Part time". Leaflet INF2D says that this means I can NOT apply for C+1, C1+E, D+E or D1+E, i.e. I can NOT get a trailer/articulated lorry provisional entitlement. If I quit the TA tomorrow, I can apply for all the +E entitlements. I spoke to a lady at the DVLA who confirmed that her interpretation of the rules is the same as mine. There does not appear to be any special exemption/additional categories that I gain from being in the TA. (E.g. I still need to do a medical, which is what I'd expected) So: Is there a reason that being in the TA is limiting my driving license? Why on earth would anyone want to tick these boxes as I can't see how the DVLA would find out or why they'd care.
