Learning to drive.

Hi. I start my phase 1 training March as a a Combat Engineer at ATR Bassingbourn. Since my chosen trade was "Bricklayer and Concreter" It seams highly unlikely that i would learn to drive. Could anybody please shed some light on the matter.


(Sorry for any mong spelling.)
You will probably find yourself on a driving course relatively quickly - or did you think your friendly SNCOs would do all the driving while you sleep in the back seat?
You may find yourself on a driving course in between finishing your B3 and starting your trade course. Especially if you have a long time to wait between courses.

Thanks for that. If there is a long time would i be sent home or would be sent to another base?
Sent home?! In between courses you'll be part of Talavara Troop my lad, which is a holding troop for Sappers in between courses and awaiting posting. You'll get to carry out all manner of tasks; Guard, playing enemy, guard and a whole host of other great jobs. But while you're there the Tp will try to get you on other buckshee courses and adventure training.
