well, after a year or so's thought ive decided to put myself through the above. Ive already had the theory test/medical and a two hour assesment lesson......I took the theory/perception test for the first time on saturday, and passed straight away. i scored 33/35 for the theory and 65/75 for the perception test.
Ive got my category c (ex hgv 2) training and test penciled in for the first week of january, and the category c + e (ex hgv 1) training penciled in for the first week of febuary..........i say penciled in, as this is if i pass both, first time. My course is a guaranteed pass course, allowing upto six fails.
I will post regular updates as to how my training is progressing in this thread, and do welcome any tips and sugestions you lot may have as i progress from being a normal car licence holder, to being licenced to drive the biggest trucks on the road
