Driving course?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone know of any driving courses going on? Sick of my fcuking stuck up instructor.
     
  2. msr

    msr LE

    Change to another instructor then.

    If your role requires you to drive, then your PSI will load you onto the necessary course.

  3. Good old search function...

    Ref TA driving courses, how long are the Category C1 (medium van) and D1 (minibus) courses? Does it include with trailer (C1+E and D1+E)? Are they at Grantham?

    Last one, is it possible to get all four Categorys done in one go?

    Cheers!
     
  4. Whether you get on the course on not will depend on your TA trade and a strict priority bidding system is used which may explain why you haven't got a course (i.e. someone needed it more than you). Other factors to consider are do you regular fail to turn up to training? do you cancel yourself from courses at the last minute? All these are reasons your instructor may not be falling over himself trying to help you out.

    It sounds as though you just want the course for your civi employment, if this is the case why should the MOD pay for it?

    If however you genuinely are being dicked around here are the answers:

    C - 7 Days

    D1 - 5 Days

    +E can be completed with Cat C or as a seperate course - 7 days.

    They are at Grantham usually though depending on the dates you may be sent to DST Leconfield.

    No they can't all be done together unless you are very fortunate with your course bids.
