Gents, Just after a bit of advice. I've decided to go for a bit of a career change. I passed my Cat C licence back in 1990 and have been driving with the army worldwide until I retired earlier this year on and off as not RLC. I've applied for and got my Digi Tach card and class 2 licence already, but need advice on the other items below before going on training to get then. I understand about C+E and will be going for that, but in addition could anyone give me advice on the following: 1. CPC - now I understand I will fall into the Periodic bracket, but do I need to have my CPC certificate before I can drive HGVs on the UK/European roads? If so, I'll include in my training schedule. I also fancy doing some long distance work internationally, therefore does the CPC cover Europe as well? 2. ADR - I live on the M4 corridor between Swindon and Bristol and have fuel depots close by (avonmouth). Is the ADR once you have it ok for all hazmat/petroleum or do you need additional licences? I'm not after mahoosive wages and would be happy with around 25k per year, is this achievable? I have my army pension so that always helps out. I've been working in Iraq since the start of the year in security and have a 12 month visa for that place but am fed up of that and not really interested in my main mil trade of admin/HR. Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance.
