Regularity of Selection Weekends

Hi all and to all those signing off - have a great weekend.

I have a couple of questions which I hope you guys can help me out with. I am just going through the process of joining RLC as a driver (I hope!). What I would like to know is how often are the selection weekends held? As I am an older recruit, ie making use of the new rules, are the requirements different for me compared to the younger recruits? If so how so? Finally how quickly are they pushing people through these days?

Cheers all


I applied in first week of november to join a specialist rlc ta unit, Im still waiting for a reply. phoned them and they said they`re waiting for approval from the doctor their end.
Thanks for that bit of info. Sounds like I've got a long wait ahead then. I guess I will just take it easy and see what comes.

Everything up to now seems to be happening at rapid pace. Although I guess the fact that I already have an LGV license and FMT600 would help me there.

Patience is a virtue and all that, I suppose I should learn some and the answers to my questions will be revealed in the fullness of time.

Is there anything you can do to hurry your process up? It does sound like it is taking an inordinate amount of time to get you in. Did something come up on your medical?
