Just a couple of questions if anyones in the position to answer.
1. I will be missing my daughters 10th birthday this year as its the 7th week of my training, are you allowed to use the laptops for anything other than work, lile a video call wink
2. Has anybody here made the trip from Cornwall? Wondering after the 1st week at yarnfield where the nearest training centre is, somebody said Southampton or Cardiff?!?
3. My start date is the 26th March, anybody heading up on this date?

Thanks in advance!


I dont think you will be away for the training tho. As far as I am led to believe the training centre is just a day thing with no over nights.

Cant help you with Cornwall mate thats like the [censored] end of the world to me haha

Im down from Scotland on the 26th of March smile

I think it depends how close you live to the training centre whether you can travel in each day or are put up at a hotel. Read you can't drive the van before 7am in the morning.

I cant think why you wouldnt be able to drive the van before 7am. Not controlled by drivers hours at that size of vehicle. Maybe no one is in that early to watch the tracker laugh

I do suppose distance will be an issue to the training centre if you live in the back and beyond.

After having the weekend worrying about the DBS problem I am so happy to have that sorted and my travel sorted. It's actually happening!
