    Get in touch with DVA direct - have all your old details ready and presto!!! I had to do that when I left the Army and joined a defence related job.
     
  3. It took me 4 months in similar circumstances.
     
  4. Does happen unfortunately - I had a Met Police CTC done when which they insisted on doing even with my cent gov CTC
     
  5. Plod likes to check it all themselves - even when going for internal vacancies within the force, you are checked again - it's a right pain in the arriss for them (and for us Managed Service Providers supporting them - temp staff are a no no for sick cover etc)
     
  6. Thanks guys and how much does this cost Mr Plod.......
