Which TA unit should I Join??

#1
Im looking to join the TA but am struggling with which unit to join. I live on the lancs/yorks border and would like a job as a driver of some sorts as im a driving instructor. Been to a ACIO in lancashire but they could only give me info of NW units and not the NE units. Unsure if i should be looking for a RLC or a REME unit? Help please!!

You've defeated me there Sparky. Are you saying that because 53 coy are northern they are too poor to have driving licences and get to training in twoced motors and therefore (s)he would be contantly spammed with providing buckshee driver training to ease the OC's court attendance burden or are you suggesting that a being a driving instructor makes one unsuitable for MI?
Just wondering.

Instead of the TA, how about Mountain Rescue? There's plenty of units up your way.

He says he wants to be a drivier, so he either wants to be C15 or be badged RLC

Hmmmm, I think the OP may just have found a niche market and prove indispensible.

On further reading, I see the OP is a "she", it's a shoe in then.

Why just look at regional units, look at the national units and the opportunities increase vastly. You only have to train at weekends so none of this 'rocking up on a Wednesday night after a full day at work' malarky!

thanks for the advice, i am getting even more confused now, i am wanting to drive as many different vehicles as i can really, and am swaying towards Eng regs, is this the best option for variety of vehicles and gaining different licences?

There is a national unit called 142 Vehicle Squadron, part of 166 Supply Regt RLC, based in Grantham but train in Warminster. They have to be able to drive all land service vehicles including armoured vehicles such as warrior etc. In theatre their role is about servicing these vehicles and loading / offloading the vehicles on trains and vessels etc for transportation. Have a look here at what our regiment has to offer!
